The subject line pretty much says it all.

We'll have a mock-up of the final version at GTS in Vegas, if anyone wants to stop by our booth and check it out.

Junish. It depends on the printer, the boats, the trucks . . . lots of variables.

Please note: The issue below is no longer valid. Please see below this forum post for the explanation:

By the way,

http://www.thoughthammer.com/revolution-the-dutch-revolt-156...

$85.00 list price for a boardgame? This boardgame? What, exactly, makes this game worth $85.00??? (LOL)

This was on my list... but not anymore. And I think I can probably afford it....but I'm not crazy.

What makes Steve Jackson Games believe that this game will sell at this price point? The box art (black box) is phenomenal! But the game art is only so/so, however. Not bad, though.

It is actually only $39.95. That is a different game with the wrong pic on thoughthammer.

Either this is a joke, or you need to check the game's description better since Mayfair probably wouldn't be happy with their products being attributed to another company.

It is no joke. Looks like a different game printed by Phalanx... but with the SJ link and graphic.

That explains it.

At 39.95, which is much more reasonable, this is potentially back on the list!

NOTE TO SJ Games: You may want to have Thoughthammer get that corrected that for you!

The ad should have shown the artwork for this game: Revolution: The Dutch Revolt 1568-1648

Just making sure as the older game by Phalanx (and distributed by Mayfair) is a game I was familiar with and I only saw your link name to know it was the wrong game.

I wish we had the time to police the web and correct all mistakes posted about our games, but that's not really a realistic option. We have more work than time as it is.

Thoughthammer's a good site -- I've placed many orders there over the years -- and I'm sure they'll fix this as soon as they can.

We ran into a bit of a snag at the factory, but everything is back on track now.

I'm not sure if this delay will change our street date. I'll update this thread when I know more.

Any News? This game is boring a hole in my head! It looks really fun, and I can't wait to spend my hard-earned-cash on it!

Still at print. We're working through the process, but we want to make sure the end product is high quality which has resulted in a few tweaks during the printing process.

Update. I approved the final samples yesterday; the game will be on the boat by the end of this month and should be hitting our warehouse the last week of July.
