I am excited to announce the future release of High Command: Europe.

This is a very unique grand strategic Logistics game covering Europe, Russia, North Africa and the Middle East from 1939-1945.

There are no army units on the maps, just logistical control.

Yes, I will have a prototype which we will be playing at Origins. Let me know if you want to get together one evening for about 1.5 hours.

The game is in the final play test stages. Oriol has stream lined the game even further. Very elegant system. I really like playing this game.

It is scheduled for a 2nd quarter 2013 release.

Not exactly that, what I would have hoped for as "further news" - but I take everything

Is Academy still planning to produce this game? I don't see anything about it on the Academy website.

Any feedback from playtesters? A grand strategy WW II in Europe game that plays in an evening is the holy grail. Very curious about how this project is coming along.

Ron,
The game is very active internally and is coming along very well. We will be beginning the final artwork phase shortly. We will be posting info on our website as we get closer to publication.

This is an area where I am still trying to decide how to proceed. Do we announce upcoming games up to a year in advance? Or wait until the game is almost ready for the printer and then post and advertise it 4 months ahead of shipping?

I am leaning towards the first choice, just to get some talk and ideas generated. But then again, we usually do not have good final artwork available yet at this time.

I would be interested to get some feedback on this.

Glad to see this one is still on track.

I can appreciate waiting until you're close to printing. Too far out and you start to lose people's interest if the game gets delayed.

Before you go final on printing though, I think the game would benefit from community scrutiny of draft rules and some detailed playtest reports.

Uwe,

Where will you be this year at Origins? I didn't see Academy listed in the Exhibitor's Hall list. It wouldn't be Origins without a visit to Academy Games--I want to be sure and find you.

Hi Mike,
I will be sharing a booth with FRED Distribution at Origins. We also plan on running on going demos in the game hall and in the wargame room.
See you there!
Uwe

The game has been in active play test mode for the past 6 months and we are tweeking the balance. I hope that we are satisfied soon! But we will not sell the wine before its time!

Thank you Uwe! Just a little note like this from time to time goes a long way. We don't want you to sell your wine too early either.

Hi all

I have been envolved on the playtesting and I'm expecting for the final date to get a brand new copy of this, any news on that?

Thanks

Seems logical to me Xavi. But this is the designer's call.
