Like the subject line says. I'm confused whether it requires the first game since it has the two sided map and two complete decks of cards.

I don't think it will be standalone. It won't come with the units or dice.

Any idea what the status of the game's release is?

I am losing hope that it will ever be released.

With all things considered, it would be shocking to see it in the next decade at least.

I was being sarcastic. Their history of timeliness has not been very good. Not sure how the pending lawsuit affects things either.

Two of the lawsuits are no longer pending as judgements have been rendered against VG to the tune of around $300K. As the rights to this title, and many others, are likely to be considered assets, who knows how or when it will all get sorted out.

It's too bad because I was looking forward to this one.

I don't normally like sarcasm but, having dealt with VG, I thought your comment most appropriate.:-)

Who knows, perhaps we will see this one on Kickstarter one day?

Perhaps, if it can get picked up by a publisher.

VG may have some issues, but the two games I own from them, have some of the best components in the business to me.

I just got The Napoleonic Wars and after a few counter tears, I was wishing it too were made by Valley Games.

VG does great work...just not very much of it, too quickly.

And then there is the part where they dodge the judgment, open a new company name, run a couple kickstarters, hit the big time, and run off to Australia with $400K.

Here's hoping some large gamers can catch up to them down there and do great violence on their persons.

Hadn't heard that before. I know one of them has a job in Australia, but I never heard of them taking such amounts of money with them. Source?

I'd rather leave it to the justice system to serve justice. That's what it's there for.

Really? You're advocating physical violence... over a board game?

No, I'm advocating physical violence over fraud. Multiple cases of it.

The "judgement" against them in the courts was about services and products they "bought" from someone else and never paid for, compounded by them creating a shadow company and ripping off consumers for hundreds of thousands of dollars.

The vendors were hurt. The buyers were hurt. "Judgement" in terms of the court system has proven useless and ineffective.

So no, it's not about "a board game." It's about lying and stealing lots of money, and doing it again and again.

And Surya, if you will search the Up Front case (and several long threads here, as well as the kickstarter page) you will find ample info.

I've tried looking into it, and all those threads are plastered with guesses and acquisitions and it's hard to find the facts in there so I gave up.
