despite we are not close to the 250 games threshold, according to the latest news update of dvg.com Hornet Leader will be off to the printer in a couple of days. does this mean that pre-ordered games will be sent in a month (or less)?

From the Dan Verssen Games (DVG) website's Pre-Order Program page:

Quote:
....Once a game reaches the required number of preorders, we charge your credit card and send the game's art files to the printer....

....In general, printing takes 12 weeks, and then we start shipping the games....

The significant data point is "12 weeks".

wow, I though printing would take much less time... Still, not waiting for 250 orders is a good news for those of us who pre-ordered the game.

Hornet presented a challenge for us.

It is a big pricey game to produce, so we really needed the pre-orders to pay the printer - who demands payment up front.

On the other hand, it is a great game and we feel it is one of those "company improving" games like the Field Commander series that will bump DVG up a level in the gaming world.

In the end we decided to send the game to the printer with only 1/2 the needed pre-orders - and started searching the couch for spare change.

We are doing final proofing now and will send the files in a couple days. It is then 12 weeks until we receive the games.

The first big milestone is receiving the printer proof copy, which takes about 3 weeks.

If you want to pre-order, know a friend who wants to pre-order, know a rich friend who wants to do a nice thing, now is the time.
