I've read the rules for this game and it sounds very interesting.

Are there plans to distribute this in Australia?

Re: Availability in Australia
I've been in contact with one of the people releasing it in the states. It sounds like they will ship anywhere, so I imagine you should be able to get it straight from the manufacturer.

I'll post as soon as I hear from them that it is ready to ship. I imagine the designer will beat me to it, but just incase. I'll post here once I hear anyrhing.

Amazingly this is the first of three games based on the same subject coming out in the next year or so. This is the first of 2 card driven games as well. I recently read Anthony Beever's spanish civil war book, so I'm really interested in the period.

Well, in fact it's not really a card driven game, as the cards do not "drive" the game. I'd call it "card-assisted". You can use the cards for aid in combats or for events, but the basic development of a turn (movements, which combats and when, reinforcements, etc.) are not determined by the cards.

Marc is right. With the cards you may choose to play "real events" that happened during the civil war (including some "what if" events that were near to happen and, perhaps, could had changed the way it finished).

The designer of the game has good knowledge of this period of History, obviously a lot of things are out of the game for playability reasons but I'm sure that España 1936 gives a good idea of this conflict.

I don't think any of us were disputing this. We're looking forwards to playing an interesting looking game, about a subject that does not get much game time. The rules are excellent, which is why I asked about the distribution.

after a severe lack of games on the Spanish Civil War, especially at the strategic and political level along come three. is their some conspiracy ?

i hope that ESPAÑA 1936 gets some good business and is not overshadowed by the releases from the bigger US publishers.

the look and scale of ESPAÑA 1936 has some advantages over the others, deep but short(er) playing and great looking games are always welcome.

Hi and regards from Barcelona to all the ANZACS!

Devir is looking for a local partner to distribute our games down there!

Any ideas? any recommendations?

Thanks to all for your interest in the game.

New Zealand won't be a big enough market to make it worth it to be honest, australia is likely though. Pixel Park is our only distributor here that I know of, but I would guess only a handful of games could be sold here, we have a hard enough time with the bigger GMT titles.

I'll try contacting Pixelpark and the Australian distributor suggestions. I also know of a few other companies in Australia.

Thanks for the suggestions!
