Thank god. I've been on the list for this one since it first showed up on heir pre-order system. I think the system has changed a couple of time since then.

This version will contain the same cards from the Avalon Hill version minus the reverse triangle cards for a total of 55 card. So, the same as the TEAM version I think.


I will be ordering 3 copies as gifts and 1 for myself

With the WBC now less than two weeks away, is there any more news . . . ?

With the end of 2009 ("The Year of The Slapshot Reprint") less than 3 weeks away, is there any new news?

I recently emailed Grant on this, and he assuredly replied that it will be published this summer.

Frankly, this reprint is becoming less relevant all the time. After seeing images of the wonderful "Super Slapshot" recreation, I wouldn't be interested in a boring old official version anyway:

Per Grant Dalgliesh in his August 13th Newsletter . . .


"Considerable progress has been made toward the release of Slapshot. Slapshot will be shipping in the next 2-3 months."

Thanks for the update Avri. I'm kind of curious what took so bloody long with this one.

It will be great to finally see this one. I pre-ordered when it was first announced! How long ago was THAT?!? Looking forward to it WHENEVER it arrives!

In hindsight, this has become a comical thread.

What it says exactly is:

Quote:
Slapshot at the printer - ready in time for Prezcon
Preorders will still be accepted until January 31. Charge date is February 1.


Also it says "Gottesman, you're spending more money soon."

The card I used to preorder this game has expired...twice...since the pre-order was placed.

Got an e-mail from Grant at Columbia today that said Slapshot is at the printers and should be released in mid-May. I have to go back and re-read the e-mail to see if he mentioned the YEAR...

You at least got an update. I've had no contact since Wed 23 Feb 2011 when they said "Your order will be shipped in 24-48 hours."

It's a good thing I happened to remember that I'm still waiting. My shipping address is no longer valid. I sure hope they can change it.

You can always drop them an e-mail with you new address, Eric. At the rate things are going, you can take your time doing that...

FYI, (this year's) Origins program has an ad for Columbia Games with Slapshot PROMINENTLY displayed.

If nothing else, they're going to get some questions from ME about it...ninja

I used to think that Columbia was good at communications and customer service. They have not only dropped the ball with this one, but not even bothered to look for it to pick it back up. How sad. Just stinking let us know what is happening!

I just got ask to update my credit card details for the Slapshot preorder billing. So it looks like it is finally coming.

Also, I note that there are new games on the gameplan but as yet no newsletter to announce that.
