I had the original attack and the original expansion, so I ordered the "upgrade" kit directly from Eagle. One of the things that was supposed to change was the naval combat to use "naval dice". I opened the box and could tell instantly there were no dice in the upgrade kit box.

I was in the process of sending a message to them when I went back to the shipping box to look for the packing slip... and there wasn't one. Digging around in the peanuts (there were a lot of them) I did encounter something unexpected: a wrapped set of dice hiding in a corner.

So, if you got the upgrade kit, *don't* throw away your packing materials without fishing the dice out of them first! Strange that they weren't in the actual game box, but at least they were there.

The Upgrade Kit doesn't link to this game, but this was also talked about here:

Same here. I was moving the box to the trash when I heard something bang around in the box. I searched through the peanuts and found the dice.

I had to actually contact Eagle Games before finding out about that.

Played it yesterday and it was a blast. First time I've played in a year (playtested it back then). Did anyone else get a copy of the Eastern hemisphere map in their upgrade? I'm trying to figure out why that was needed in the upgrade kit if its intended for use with the expansion.

hey guys,

Sorry about the small issues with shipping the kit.

Answer #1 : the dice were not inserted in the web kits from the factory, so we had to manually add them to the boxes.

Answer #2 : the extra game boards we ordered WERE inserted in the web kits, and rather than manually remove them and re-shrink them, we just shipped them out to you guys rather than delay the game a month.

Canada and overseas orders should all be in route now, so rest assured!

We still have a few hundred web kits left, but the full game is now sold out at distribution level!

We will have another run of the game arriving in a month or so, and hopefully nobody will even notice it is sold out. (distributors and stores are just now getting them, and they need time to sell still, so If you are having a hard time finding it, check out your flgs!)

1 more bit 'o news... We will have black and white land units back in stock in a few months! (we still have black and white naval units in stock)

so...if you noticed...you have everything you need to support up to EIGHT players in the box...(still need b&w pieces)

I just got my upgrade kit yesterday and the dice were taped to the shrink wrap on the outside of the box. No problem finding them!

I have received my edition of Deluxe, the web exclusive upgrade kit. I found the naval dice...no problemo!

Question: can we buy MORE Naval dice? I always prefer to have extra dice. Thanks! (SFRR)

I asked about extra dice a couple of weeks ago and they are supposedly going to have them on the website sometime soon. I also want a set (or two, and REALLY like the idea of 'political affinity' colored dice, aka nationality dice as are now available for Axis and Allies).

So in order to play this game you need the base game the expansion AND de deluxe set?

Still not sure if I'll bother with it, but can't hurt to stay informed.

No. You need either:

A) The Base game and the Deluxe Expansion

-or-

B) The Base Game, the Expansion, and the Deluxe Expansion Upgrade Kit (available on the web only, for when you already have the Expansion Kit)
