When it is your turn to send a VASSAL move, the wait is excruciating. When it's my turn, well, I've been busy.

They do say Courtney is working with them on this.

That gives hope in two regards: legal issues, and play issues.

As a satisfied owner,
my heart throbs with an unbridled indifference,
ok, mixed with a little curiosity.

Its been relatively quiet around here, with the steam in the Total War = Total Wait thread petering out a little as backers are slowly coming out of denial.

I might pick it up, if it gets cheap enough.

I think my wife would like it.

I am not part of the public for UF, but I am glad with the news. After reading so many threads celebrating this wargame and longing for its reprint, this is a joyous event.

As long as Valley games don't delay it forever.

WERE these going to 'incorporate' the other "FAN-derived" additions too? If NOT; then WHY NOT?

Seriously Valley Games has a spotty record historically. Kickstarter has infused a _lot_ of money.

Where there is money, things happen.

I'm confident they will come through. They have the capital.

claims he got suspended for saying Valley Games is nearly insolvent, and owes him hundreds of thousands of dollars. That makes me more than a little nervous.

Sorry, I had a suspension, not a ban... my bad. If YOU are nervous, I would gladly trade places with you.

We had triplet girls ten months ago, but you cannot have them.

Congratulations on your new arrival, incidentally.

Just to be clear. I did not claim that Valley was insolvent. I simply defined what bankruptcy was. I DID say that I am not getting paid. Their financial picture is unknown to me, in spite of the contractual right to know what it is (one area of breach on Valley's part).

Yes, making this violation even more egregious. Five weeks in the NICU will provide some bills if you're short on them.

Point taken.

I wonder, in general, about kickstarter. What will happen when one of these companies takes yer money and does not issue a game (ala "TOTAL WAR").

Maybe it's not cool to quote yourself, but I suspect Katalyka is going to be the test case....
