Because it is the game I want the most right now.

That is all.

Name a game that is better than this one? Exactly.

I concur. I resorted to buying Railroad Tycoon, I've been waiting so long. Not that RRT is bad, but...

Yeah, I was tempted to trade for RRT, but I reallly want the "lite" rule set of AoS III to reel in potential players.

Ok, I apologize for my lack of insight and snarkiness. I'm just anxious for this game. And Wabash Cannonball looks great. And I even bought another Bohrer game recently--Transamerica--and my kids like it. Now let's all have a group hug.

That would be a fine new name for this game.

Ok, I also apologise. Group Hug. Have you played Age of Steam, though? From your postings, I gather that you have not, that no one will play it with you. Am I mistaken?

I have played it three times, loved it, and then couldn't find any more players. It sat there on the shelf, taunting me, so I traded it for an OOP game that my kids could play. My evil plan for world domination consists of getting AoS III and using it as a gateway game for my brother who is just starting to burn out on Ticket to Ride.

When is it supposed to be released? Why the 2 week deadline?

Simply because I can't wait any longer. After two weeks I am going to break down and buy a pale substitute.

Interesting, yes. Not necessarily correct from the facts as I have understood them to be, but interesting.

Though I thought that Coldfoot's comments about book editors were quite insightful.

Anyway, I gather that Mayfair will release the game when they - and Martin - feel that it is ready for release, and not a moment before. There are lots of good reasons for trying to get the product to be as polished and as perfect as possible, and only impatience as a reason for rushing the job.

Information on the lawsuit- http://www.boardgamegeek.com/article/2061888#2061888

I've never read court documents like this before but its interesting how one side can claim something isn't true just because they claim to have no knowledge of it.

I would like to point out that Transameica was a Franz Benno Delonge game.....NOT a Bohrer game. Just for info

Ah, yes, thank you. It looks like it was originally published by Winsome.

So did you get a substitute or are you still hanging out for it?

I did not buy a substitute rails game. I did rent Ticket to Ride with the Swiss map to play with the kids but it never got to the table. I also received the Phalanx edition of "A House Divided" in trade and purchased "Cowboys: Way of the Gun" at steep discount which has been fun. Mr. Jack shows potential but hasn't ignited any real passion. I can't bring myself to get Railroad Tycoon yet. I don't think I have a big enough table.

That is a serious issue, it takes up a lot of space!

Perhaps RRT should be marketed as AOS III methadone.
