Thanks for the interest ! Just to be clear what we said was "It would not be ready prior to Christmas". This was to let people know at Essen that it was not something imminent. It did not mean that it would be published at Christmas or necessarily soon after - just not before
Our limited time has been taken up recently with our 2011 release which we have been working extremely hard on (details to follow when they are finalised!). This has meant we have prioritised this over finalising the 2 person variant.
In short, we will finalise a 2 person variant for Antics! - though it will not be ready in the near
future. Our time through to August will be spent working on the new game. However, we may get some time before Essen to work on the 2 player variant and. if we do, I will post here to let people know.
More to follow....ask for an update again if nothing has been heard prior to Essen
