The capital of New Hampshire is pronounced "Conquered." The people are called New Hamsters. They pronounce "aunt" to rhyme with "taunt."

Worthington did MedWar Sicily, which uses the same basic system. That may be what they're talking about.

Worthington Games has already published two games in this series (Desert War and Medwar Sicily). They are also scheduled to produce an East Front game as part of this series. Looks like Blood and Sand will also get published by Worthington Games.

Their quality (at least in terms of components) is excellent lately.

Yes, I think the Worthington games have very good quality. I own Desert War, Medwar Sicily, and Napoleon's 100 Days and all are great.

Blood and Sand is retitled by Worthington games and I believe that it is already published. The title is "DESERT WAR: EGYPT 1940".

Desert War only covers the Italian actions before the Germans showed up. Blood and Sand covers the actions from when the Germans showed up, but not sure if it include the US Torch andings and battles.

Will be the same basic rules (probably 80-85%), with game specific rules added in/changed to make Blood and Sand work.

The Map would suggest that Torch is not part of the campaign, as Torch started in Morocco and Algeria and this map is of Lybia and Egypt. Instead it looks it would cover the Rommel's entrance into the theatre, 1941 , thus the siege of Tobruk and Operation Crusader, and then onto the El Alamein nonsense of 1942. Though it could also detail the Italian/Britain conflicts of 1940, but that is detailed in "Desert War" so one could imagine that it is not.

Worthington Games will be publishing "Blood and Sand". The title will remain. We will begin taking pre-release orders on November 1. The game will be published in January-March 2011.

Thanks,

At this time it does not look like it. We will probably be using our own Sean Cooke who has done some spectacular maps for us, particularly recently.

Thanks,
