All the way from Ohio to Sydney, Australia without a scratch on it, box is mint.

Absolutely blown away by the quality of the components inside, the counters, the rules, the firefight book. The Osprey bonus Kursk book is just the icing (or is that frosting?) on what looks to be a very, very tasty cake.

Congratulation Uwe, and thanks a bunch!

With this game, I think there's icing, and then frosting on top of the icing.

The component quality is just that good.

Yea for the components! I thought one of the hairs I keep losing from my head had fallen on board 7, then realized it was the shadow of the telegraph wire in the village (or maybe the wire itself). And what looks like the entire inventory of 3rd Reich armored assets represented on counters.

Since the German side uses captured T-34s, I wonder if Uwe will ever bring out a game where the Russians will use the repaired Panthers and Tigers captured after Pokhora Pokhorotko Kursk. Orel Pocket? Collapse of Army Group Center? Battle for Berlin?

And I guess the Aussie post office doesn't spend its coffee break playing frisbee with the heavy parcels. (This morning's news: USPS loses some $8 billion this year. No wonder they lost my rent check).

Got my copy today (Canberra, Australia).

Some of the paper components inside (rule/scenario book and track sheets were a little bit crushed/deformed and there was a minor ding in one box corner but nothing I can't live with, I guess.

Looking forward to giving it a whirl sometime soon having just finished all the Combat Commander: Pacific scenarios.

After much trial and tribulation I could finally pick up my copy today, which had arrived without a scratch. I didn't think I could be surprised by the quality, but I was! Now all I need is someone to play it with (sorry guys, but solo is for computers...!)

Steve, you are an artist. Just close your eyes and visualize you have it! Then paint a painting of it.

Harald, please call your local post office, it may be sitting there. This makes no sense, but then again, the package could be sitting in customes. The overseas games were shipped Priority Air and cost over $50 to ship, so they had better get there!

Keep me updated please.
