First, a confession.

I play HIS ("Here I Stand") at least 5 times a week on wargameroom.com. Given the way the interface has brilliantly been set up and programmed by Bruce Wigdor, a complete 3 player game lasts about 2 hours.

With 6 players (maybe only once a week - yes, I know, "the horror"), the game may last 4-5 hours. We mostly look for those on "multiplayer Saturdays."

To say we are filled with anticipation regarding the sequel would be a gross understatement.

We want the Virgin Queen!

(That didn't sound right.)

I beg your pardon.

When may we expect her highness to appear?

I am totally with you, and have no qualms about voicing my carnal desire for a boardgame.

Now, to take a look at the HIS interface at wargameroom.com....

Damn, I am pathetic.

I have a crush on a wargame that does not even exist yet.

(DOnt parse that folks if you value your health)

To the benefit of those who do not follow GMT on Facebook, here is their answer today to the question "is there any chance that virgin queen would see the light of day sooner?":

[T]he first open production slots we have are for Fall, 2011. If this order pace continues for VQ, it could certainly get one of those, as long as Ed and the final development team are happy that the final testing is complete by then.

Getting the balance on a 6-player game just right takes time. Especially when the game is as good as this one will be!

Besides, the first 500 preorders were more or less automatic. I'd expect the pace to slow down from here on in.
