Yeah, I was pretty much a buyer for this until I saw the price tag....that is very steep! I love B-17 related games and this has been on my radar since it was announced but, what with the price and the errata/rework of the rule book I am feeling less fired up to getting it at the moment.cit is just a matter of can I hold out and wait for a trade etc or will I buckle...it will more likely be the latter!

Good point on the rule book. Makes it even harder to justify the price tag when you have to reprint the rule book yourself!!

The rulebook that comes with the game is just fine -- the other book just helps clarify some issues.

It's a great game, really immersive.

Board game extras are currently showing the game in stock at £65.50 including shipping.

I got mine from them last week.

They are excellent.

I'd grab it whilst you can at that price....!

Don't let the rulebook "issue" sway you.
The rulebook reprint basically clarifies some things.
The original is ok, especially if you've played other DVG leader games.
Read through it completely before attempting to play and you should be fine.
On my way to Germany again tonight.............

And don't forget to add the 2.5 x 3.5" card protectors to the order as well!

I had totally forgotten about these guys which is terrible of me as I have bought heaps from them and knew they were a major stockist of DVG games. Anyway thanks for the reminder. I have just placed an order as £65 is more what I was prepared to pay.

Still waiting for the copy I ordered last Tuesday, despite paying extra for 1st class shipping...

[edit:] The website is still showing the games as being 'in stock' but I now notice the 1st line of a wall of text under the game:

Our first wave of this has sold out, our next wave is due week beginning 22nd May B-17 Flying Fortress Leader is the latest Solitare game in DVG's Leader Series

Not sure if this was there when I ordered last week soblue

Ordered mine at the same time as you but I was cheap and went second class

It was definitely in stock when I placed my order but like you when I went on a day or so later I noticed the new text about saying when it would be next in. I haven't had a dispatch notice (though I did get an email confirming my order) but I'm not sure if they send dispatch notices. I think we have missed out and are now on the May 22 run.

On the upside the listing on Board Game Extras has changed.
On the downside it's now listed as out of stock with no indication of when it might get back in stock...

[edit] But I have an email saying my copy got shipped on the 24th.

Had the same email and mine arrived yesterday. Nice looking game. Shame that the rulebook is out of date already and I now have to print out 50 pages myself.

I put a lot of my rule books on my iPad using an app called Goodreader (other apps are available).

I have found that it is really useful for searching as well in case there is not a very good index in the rule book, so you can search for individual terms. Very useful to have all my rule books on long journeys. Saves on paper and printer ink!!
