Dear Santa Claus,
I know that my humble little country is very far away from your home base and that you're very busy.
But doesn't any dwarf from your magic company can give me an aproximative date of delivery of the spanish expansion under my poor christmas tree?
TY in advance.

Last year was just as stressful, GMT waited till the last minute to release the core game. Now this year they miss the boat completely! I'm still waiting for the Spanish expansion!

Well, for what it's worth, no one chose to "wait til the last minute" on anything. You make it sound like deliberate actions against your interests. Sounds like a seven-year old.

Besides, G.G. will just change anything he gets within the first 20 minutes of opening the box and post his "variants and improvements" before he finishes reading the rules.

I think Santa intentionally passed his house by and gave it to the kid down the street.

I like your kind Bill Wallace: cowards who sent their hate through posts because they couldn't do it in front of the man ... you zero!

Bill, he just called you a "zero"! WTF?!?

Guess something got lost in translation.

Well, G, he has a point. You were doing an awful lot of, "here are my ideas to make the game better" right after it came out. Didn't you post some things before you actually got the game?

Hope the postman is good to you soon. I only opened the box for the first time myself yesterday.

TY Kevin.

It's sure that those first messages I made about the game were as sinceres as misunderstood. They may have look awfull and pretentious and I can understand that.

It's true that I was playing M44 and BCry for years with changes in the rules that most of my friends (and other players) appreciated. So my first reflex was to do the same thing with CCN.

But as I said later: this game is absolutely great and for the very first time in my life (with excepton of chess lol) I play a game FOLLOWING THE EXACT OFFICIAL RULES!

So you can understand that with my age and experience: it's impossible to stand and to admit the kind of agression I read. A guy I just don't remember (?) posting his hate on a single opinion posted a few months ago and that I allready changed ... WOOOW!

Anyway ... Happy new year & great battles for the rest of the gentlemen!

GG

As to the delivery date of C&C:N, Exp#1, mine had arrived and was here waiting for me prior to my redeployment from Afghanistan on 21 DEC. Santa was not involved, so lay no blame at his door.

I have no knowledge of the prior animosity of GG and BW, but I have to say that calling someone a coward for not getting on an overseas flight so as to say something negative to your face is a little excessive.

Here's hoping you both just 'forgot' to add your smileys.whistle

OK Paul, if you think I was excessive ... I'm sorry.

But just admit that my first initial post was cool ... and that the post of Bill was not really ... how do you say ... "gentle"?

Absolutely no prior animosity with BW (even didn't know him before) ... that's the main reason of my surprise!

Come on anybody: just imagine you're in my place ... !?!

Regardless of the relative cool-ness of your original post, on which I make no judgement, the problem for me is that BillW seemed to me to be comparing the person who replied to your post with a 7-year old, not you.

Combine that with the lack of prior argumentative history between you and BillW and your 'coward' comment seems to be out of proportion with BillW's insult (real or imagined).

I will leave it at that. Bonne chance avec (ou contre) vos soldats espagnol.

Looks like we have just avoided the first USA-France war in history whistle

This is January 3 and no Spanish Army expansion in sight yes (I'm in Paris). Hope we get it within the next couple of weeks...

Guillaume,

I've been in your shoes before: a long wait to receive a P500 item weeks after it had gone out to subscribers. GMT was very good to me this year: I had both my expansions within two weeks after they were shipped.

What I tried to do was play and fuss over other games I already had in my collection that had not seen much play. Something to distract me so the arrival was a surprise.

I hope your games arrive soon!

TY for the support Brady.

As you say, I just noticed the delay but still enjoy the base game.
I agree with Richard Borg the creator: You can play a high number of battles of the same scenario and still have surprises!

I don't remember from previous experience, but I guess that if all pre-orders are shipped almost at the same time, the Europeans get them a few weeks later? How many?


I'm waiting for CCA:Spartans, that has been shipped at about the same time, and it seems that only US guys are getting it by now...
