The PXXX for "Last Chance for Victory" (the 2nd in the "Line of Battle" series) is now up on MMP's website. The $120 is a discount if you order it during the anniversary days of the battle. It will go up to $135 for the preorder price thereafter and $180 for full retail. Get it while it's hot.

Will be interesting to see how preorders will rise during Little Round Top fighting and Pickett's Charge.

I ordered at 8:30 this morning, but the order was tagged 8:37. Time sync fail.

Kev, No, the order number has nothing to do with the purchase number. I think you pretty much have to place your order then go look at the preorder count on the order page (which I always forget to do...).

Every time I think about this series I always hit the same thought. The counters are far from inspiring to the point where it keeps holding me back from buying.

Likewise, although I'm not that crazy about the maps either. I guess it's just the formula that makes these games possible, but it's a pity that someone with a little more graphics ability couldn't be enlisted to do them. Seriously thought about getting this one until I saw the samples. Did order Canadian Crucible though and that map looks fantastic although I understand there might have been some printing issues with the counters.

Target for preorder reached. 463 orders and counting. The game will be at $120 for the next two days. Maps and counters look GREAT. Thank god the counters don't have little men on them!

I don't hate counters with little men - but I really do like the
way lines look with Gamers stuff. These counters are busier than
I'm used to though.

Preordering to Europe is insane so I won't preorder but consider one copy sold. MMP is going to ruin me - Last Chance for Victory, Stonewall Jackson's Way II, Rising Sun...

Go with UGG, that is what I will do, though they haven't added the game to their site yet.

I've purchased The Gamers games since the beginning, so I guess I'm used to the map graphics.

As far as the counters go, I find that they add some flavor to the game. Sure, they're not the most beautiful counters extant, but I like them. Of course, to each his own.

Great game system, regardless of the graphics.

With the $120 instead of $135 special promotion, it may amount to about the same price even though the shipping is almost $50...

Yeah, I kinda like the counter graphics, particularly for the line aesthetic as well as the state silhouettes.

However I didn't order this for the counters, but for the cool as balls orders system. That and Rick's maps.

The counters, I agree, are right what they need to be.

the map - without reproach.

I look forward to MMP's estimate of when this will go into production. Over on CSW there was some indication that the lightning-quick achievement of the 450 orders (and now we're over 500) will have an affect on getting this out the door sooner rather than later.

Doubtful it will push Rising Sun out or Stonewall Jackson's Way II out of their production slots, but I suspect it might come before Reluctant Enemies now, especially if RE is waiting on OCS Korea to hit its number.

So we might see this by Fall!

Your mind transcends counters anyway, Enrico. We've seen the videos, man.

I hope for the same pricing as War of the Suns had: 137€ as preorder. With an expected price of about 160-170$ and customs (don't think you have any chance to get this one through) it would be about 150€ plus you could end up with trouble at customs (at least that happened to me once were I had to declare everything by hand).
It still hurts a lot, but I will start throwing 10€ into a bucket every day from now on!
