On the BGG page it states that all profits from the original sales of this game were donated to the Royal British Legion and Veteranos de Guerra. I note the use of past tense.

Does this mean that this is no longer the case? I've been trying to justify the somewhat exorbitant price to myself, and I thought this might help put some weight on the "buy" side of the scales if the profits are to be donated to a good cause.

No. I actually made a loss on the two initial print runs, though I made a donation anyway.

I didn't want to make that commitment this time until I'd actually recouped what we lost initially.

If we make profits from this run, (which is probable), then I'll again be making a donation to the British Legion, but I'd didn't think it was fare to make that promise until I'd seen how it panned out.

Regardless of how good your game is Dan, statements like this make me even happier I bought it the first time round and that I am buying two more copies this time round. I had been hoping you might at least make something out of this print run but it seems you are too generous.

You have a supporter for life here! However, it is also a bonus for me that your games are brilliant.

Hi Todd,


Well, like I said, I hope to at least make up what we lost on the initial run, but the initial games were produced on the basis of providing proceeds to charity, so I need to basically stick with that principle.

I plan to make enough to retire on from my other games...

Only the Royal British Legion, not the Argentinian one?

Maybe by the fifth edition you'll need to walk on water for people to buy the game.
