The newly revised release date is for early November. Unfortunately printers never work as fast as desired!

We did get the proofs of the plastic pieces and they look awesome!! I think everyone will be very pleased!

Kyle,

WoE looks great! Could you give us a rundown of the game play? How is it different from Risk and all the other similar world conquering games, etc.?

Thanks!

Hello,

No. We went to GenCon without games to sell and while it was a success at introducing the game and we had lots of excitement over it. We decided it wasn't worth going to another convention without games to sell. We should be there next year!

Thanks Ray,

It doesn't play anything like RISK. It is more like the Game Master series from Militon Bradley with many more elements added....Terrain, Cards, etc...

You can get more information here:

Hey Kyle,

What is your print run 100000, 20000 or 30000 units?

Just to know if I can wait until it'll be in store or I have to order it ASAP. I confess I don't like Pre-order systems.

Jean Claude,

Well, you've over-estimated just a bit. Our first print run is 2000 games. If those sell and there is demand for more, we will do a second print run.

Thanks for your interest!

Kyle

That's right. The Gamemaster series games are my all time favorites ever.
I can't wait for a game like Warlords of Europe, and i think many players were waiting for such a game. Many games were created thse last years, but a lot of them include eurogames machanisms gulp
I will try to promote it in french forums !
By the way, Ilive in France, what about the shipping cost ? Will there be retailers in France to get the game ?

Kyle,

1. Is it equally balanced for 2, 3, and 4 players? Or as in most 3 player conquest games, does the middle guy gets squeezed?

2. Are there different victory conditions, or is it total conquest/player elimination?

3. Will WoE be available at the usual online distributors, or only direct from CG?

Thanks!

Avril,

We will ship to France if you order direct from us. However, unfortunately it costs 45.00 usd to ship to Europe.

We are currently working to secure a European distributor. If we are successful I will let you know.

Thanks for the kind words. We appreciate all the promotion we can get!

Ray,

We have done our best to make it balanced no matter how many players are involved, and I feel we have succeded. There is never anyone "in the middle" if you don't want to start that way. We provide several recommended starting scenarios that work well, but sometimes it's also fun just to pick your favorite country, or pick them randomly.

The standard victory conditions are the first player to control the majority of finished castles on the board wins. However, you can play to total conquest if you wish.

I would imagine many e-tailers will have the game. It is available to all stores through Alliance Distribution.

Kyle

If 2 players focus on actively killing each other only, it's highly likely the player who turtles will win. If 2 players focus on actively killing a 3rd player, its likely they will succeed. In other words, it's a 3 player combat game. :)

That said, I believe a stronger player can win quickly enough that 2 somewhat beaten down players who ally often won't have time for their alliance to overwhelm him. Depends how quickly they ally and how beaten down they were, and if the strong player has been holding onto his sneakier cards or using them sub-optimally.

I enjoy a 3 player game as much as a 2 or 4.


We usually start 3 player games in a "triangular" setup so there is no middle man, but the kingdoms on the map roughly form a 3x3 grid, so you can setup in whatever configuration you like. Or you can play tic tac toe with medieval archers vs knights. It's like 2 games in 1...what a value.

Forgot to mention that the revised revised release date is Jan/Feb for wide distro.

We can air ship a few cartons mid-Dec. So if you simply-must-have-it-first, swing by our website for details.

Hi Kyle and thnks for the reply.
For Europe, do you already have the distributor or things are to be done ?
Are you sure to get one (i'm praying ) ?
My other point will be about a 5-player game possibility. These kind of games, like Samurai Swords, are at their best with 5 players.
Will there be an extension and is it possible with the rules ?
Thanks.

Avril,

No, we have not found a distributor in Europe yet.

We have played the game with 5 and 6 players and it works fine. We may offer an expansion set in the future to accomodate this.
