Hello Everyone:

I would like to announce that Compass Games (http://compassgames.com/) has agreed to publish this game in issue #82 or #83 of Paper Wars magazine. It will appear in late 2013 or early 2014, but I have been asked to take this free print-and-play version off my website.

So, you'll have to wait a year or so, but I don't think you will regret it - Compass Games does great graphics and the game will have both die-cut counters and a decent size map. Both versions of the game (company/battalion and brigade level) will be published.

Thanks,

Brian Train

Any update on when we can expect publication of Finnish Civil War? I believe the latest edition from Paper Wars is #79, however there doesnt't appear to be any regular pattern to issue dates. I'd really like to get this game, but I wonder if I'm going to have to wait a few more years.

I haven't heard anything new, except what you know already - Paper wars is no longer publishing on a fixed schedule.
I have heard that #80 will be published soon, which I take to be in the next few months.
So perhaps it will be another year before this game comes out.
If anyone from Compass Games is at the CSW Expo in Tempe in late May, I will take it up with them.
Ken Dingley often comes to this con but I am not sure if he is coming this year.

Hi Brian

Thanks for such a quick response. If you do hear of anything it would be appreciated if you could update on BGG.

Regard

Don't worry Neil, I will.
I will also post news to my game design blog, which I see you have discovered!

I have just heard from Compass Games that Paper Wars #79 is due to come out in mid-December 2014.
This is becoming a near-annual event, so stay tuned - perhaps we'll see this in 2017, but probably sooner.

From the Compass Games website, it appears that issue #80 of Paper Wars will be out soon (August 2015).
It will contain the game Setting Sun, Rising Sun.
They have also advised that they have engaged a new guy to do art and layout of the magazine, so production will be faster in future.

So #82 will probably be out in 2016 some time.

...Aaaaand now I've heard that the game will be bumped to issue #83.

And, at long last, they have asked again for the game files which I already sent them in 2012, so preliminary work is starting on it... but #80 still hasn't appeared, so perhaps this may appear in 2017 after all.

So it goes.
But when it does come out, I'm certain it will look great.

Art is different from my original map and counters.

Not sure about the new map. The bold hex lines give a green honeycomb effect. The reindeers are a nice touch though: were they on the original map?

Yes, the hex lines are quite bold.
My original map was functional but quite stark:
