In case it is published before Essen 09 (hope it is...), how many copies do you plan to bring there?

I mean, will you implement sort of a booking system?

Will I be able to pre order it from anywhere? I am just a lowly American with no chance to attend the fun event.

Yes, there will be preorders.
Yes, there will be possibility to preorder game to US.

We were bringing about 300 copies of our games to Essen (Neuroshima HEX 2007 and Witchcraft 2008). I suppose there will be 300 of Stronghold this year in Essen as well.

Definitely keep us informed when it's released for the US. This one is definitely on my wishlist. Gorgeous looking game, too!

Hi Ignacy!

I'd like to book one of those copies.
I think your game game has already raised that special sense of expectancy... congratulations!!

Definately going to preorder as soon as I can. I'm so excited! I love both of the proposed elements of this game, the desperate defense and reckless assault, and I'm glad to see a game give me the oppurtunity to play both. I'm also thinking that if this game is as great as I think it will be it may be the first game I build a custom board for. Imagine that game board with actual towers and buildings on it...Can't wait!

I'm confused by an article on Boardgame News . . . unsure now whether this game is still on the way to production, or whether the designer has put it away due to certain design issues.

This is not to say that there ARE design issues . . . simply an honest question: is "Stronghold" still going to be published this year?

EDIT: From a designer comment in another Forum thread it appears that the BGN article only dealt with a design issue related to the "time track" that was a part of the design at that stage of the test process.

I hope this is correct and "Stronghold" is still on the way. Sorry for any alarm generated by my question, which arose from consternation on my part as I'm really looking forward to this game.

Don't worry, the game is still planned for Essen.

The articles that are published on BGN.com are a 'Diary'. They were written long time ago, they present the whole long process of creating the game. The problem, you were reading about this week took place "in real" in February.

Next episode will describe how I managed to resolve the problem.

Thank you for clarifying. I squealed too soon. Very good news! With my panic subdued, I'll take the opportunity to commend you for the detailed design-process diary. It can be very frustrating when a favored system mechanic just has to be put aside for the good of the game, but it's very reassuring to see how deliberate your design process actually is.

I'm sure the finished product will be outstanding.

What's not to love?

I'm going to GenCon this week and it's not going to be the same without a chance to demo this game. Let me know when I can order it in the US.

The source of a Christian ethic is not the reality of one’s own self, not the reality of the world, nor is it the reality of norms and values. It is the reality of God that is revealed in Jesus Christ.- Bonhoeffer

I'm yet another wondering when the game will make the U.S. and who will publish it here. (Z-Man published Portal's Neuroshima Hex...perhaps Z-Man?)

If Stronghold's available in EU in October, what does that mean for U.S.? Can anyone speak to this? Thanks.

Is it being printed in English? If so, I'm interested in trying to secure a copy from someone. Otherwise, I can hardly wait for it to arrive in the US.

Edition that we prepare for Essen will have English rules.

It is possible that game will be published in U.S. by one of the publishers, however we have to wait with announcement till we have contract signed.
