Just wondering when this game might be available. And what the components are.

We're looking at a September release.

The game is played with a 17" x 22" mapsheet (with humongous hexes), a half-sheet of counters, a handful of cards, and fifty-some black wooden discs. The wood bits for this and several other games just arrived on my doorstep yesterday - very heavy box, the mail lady was not very happy about it, and neither was my back!

We're going to be ordering a proof of the cards in the next couple of days so that we can check for the usability of the current layout style (they're small cards, so we want to make sure everything is readable). If it doesn't work out, then we'll have to try a different layout for the cards, which might delay release.

We're still working on laying out the rulebook - going to three conventions in a month kinda threw a spanner in the works, and getting sick after the last con didn't help.

But we're getting back to it soon, and once we have the rulebook layout done, we'll be sending it to Erin for her perusal and feedback.

Assuming all of the above goes smoothly, we should be taking orders for the game in early September.

The fire last month upset our release schedule, so that our late August game (Ribbit) has been pushed into early September, and our early September game - this one - is being pushed into late September.

We've recorded a video overview which will be up in the next week or so, and will be uploading the rulebook as well.

The cards have been shipped by our cards printer, and should be arriving at our game printer's doorstep (or facsimile thereof) early next week. As soon as he has it in hand, we'll be able to start taking orders.

I happened to check the Hollandspiel site last night and saw it was available. I quickly made a purchase.

Congrats on the game finally being published. I look forward to getting my hands on it.

That's very kind.

I don't expect we'll ever be attending Spiel at Essen, at least not as a business. There might be a slight chance that someone else will be bringing some of our titles with them this year to sell but I can't guarantee that and don't want to get anyone's hopes up - if something does come of it, we'll be sure to announce it in a newsletter.

My copy just arrived and I look forward to playing it. I love that fresh ink smell. Fast turnaround time. Ordered the game a couple of days ago and now I have it in my hands.
