Thanks for that bit of happy news, Alan -- an upgraded version of Hero of Weehawken is something to look forward to however long it takes.

Right now I like the France 1940 "No Retreat". It's in VPG's deluxe "red banner" version with upgraded graphis & laser-cut counters. I have been trying to figure out (unsucessfully) how to overrun the French.

Every game in our back catalog will be upgraded eventually, including HERO OF WEEHAWKEN. It's just that it takes away a lot of energy from new game releases to upgrade old games, so we can only do a few a year -- and there are a lot of games in our back-catalog needing upgrading!

I would say any of the "No Retreat" series are a challenge for war gamers. A number of new concepts ("counterblow" for example), lots of hard choices with the cards, etc. Low counter density but don't let that fool you, these are serious war games.

I love "Hero of Weehawken," but the cards are a bit hard to work with compared to, say, "Levee en Masse" (another fave). Is there ever going to be a version with cards that are a little more flexible?

the Nappy 20 series is pure gold folks...nice, small, manageable games on a great subject....and a system with a surprising amount of nuance for such a simple set of rules. VPG has become one of my new favorite sources of games. They weren't  around when I faded out of the gaming scene in the late 90's otherwise I would have stuck around....just didn't have the time or patience for most of what was around back then.

I purchased dawn of the Zeds based on subject matter....now I have something to do during the commercial breaks while watching The Walking Dead.

Played my first game of Malta Besirged tonight - fun game - I lost - Very tense. I was initially intimidated by the rules - there seemed to be a lot of them and appeared to be complex. However, after about 7 turns or so, the game began to flow. I felt the biggest challenge was the Afrika Korps - I couldn't stop them and in the end, this sealed the victory for the Axis. All in all, I like the game. Unlike many folks, I like the size of the cards and even the tiny dice - it makes for a compact game experience.

ZULUS ON THE RAMPARTS is next after we get the different platform releases of LEVEE EN MASSE. So, we're probably talking no later than this winter. -AE

 Darin, I love Soviet Dawn and Ottoman Sunset. What are you preparing next for the SOS series?

 You´re the king.
