Isn't this the second time this game has reached the preorder number???

From what I understand, after it reached it the first time they decided to redesigned the game.

I had my name on the list but now after years of waiting; forget it!

Sorry to be so negative "but"... It's like coming up with an idea then advertising it on a commercial before you even hit the drawing board.

Once I get some real news like pictures, and news of development, maybe I'll reconsider.

Wrong. The counter artwork (only) was redesigned.

The change in preorder numbers reflected orders that hadn't been transferred from the old website, and the orderers hadn't updated their information.

I had cancelled my order at one point, too. I'm sticking with it this time.

See also the post about three-quarters of the way down this page, from Brian Youse:

Quote:
This game would have been printed in 2012 except that when we received the counter proofs we hated them and had them all redone.

Bruce Yearian has redone all the counter sheets (something like 12, I don't recall) and worked a -long- time this fall sending proofs back and forth between Adam and the designer Leonard to get a look we were comfortable with, and then reproof them all.

That work is done, this should be printed sometime very soon in 2013 as its ready to go now (as far as i'm aware, anyways).

Sorry but I still have "negative vibes" about this game.

I still subscribe to it. I guess that would keep me on the fence about it.

I'm definitely interested in the game and its theme, but there is a cost issue.

It would help me decide if we could get a preview of the new counters. It would also be helpful if we could get a preview of the rules.

haha, "we" hated them. That's a little revisionism there. Youse meant all the old, stodgy, CSW lovers hated them and he had give in and cater to that audience.

But good on this game for hitting its numbers. It sounds like it could be the definitive statement on a way, way undergamed topic which is awesome.

Well, I guess I'm old and stodgy, because I tend to be on CSW more than BGG.

I liked the original design of the counters, but others expressed concern that so much white and so little color meant that it would difficult to pick out which counters belonged to which side once they were all on the map. I thought that, being 5/8" counters, the colors would be good enough, but others didn't think so.

Brian and MMP have the financial risk to take in this case, though, so their decision is ultimately the one that counts. I'm not so sure he was "catering to that audience" or more concern with how he and the others at MMP felt about the artwork.

I happened to see that Adam posted a link to his "IGS" Facebook page - I'm going to have to visit it more often for info in his games.

Here's an early look at the KMT unit types:
