How long between pre-sale and release do you project?

Awesome news!  My B-17 is defintely showing its wear and tear these days.  Might even be ready for the Labor Day Cons up here, tournament wise,

Awesome - great to hear and looking forward to the next version! Gotta start putting my pennies away - July is right around the corner!  :)

The first phase of play testing for Target for Today has been completed. Based on feedback, Bob has completed the beta rules for the game, as well as rules for squadron play. We will undergo another phase of play testing to make sure all is in order. I will be receiving the rules in a few days, and I will complete any necessary graphics work. Once that work is complete, I will send the files to play testers.

In my communications with Randy at Legion Wargames, the game will go on the pre-sale list in mid-July, barring any unforeseen circumstances.

I played B17 with my dad when I was a kid and rediscovered love for game after finding the emulator.  Really looking forward to this.  Any information about when it is coming out?

Yes! Perfect timing, as I am starting to prep for my 2015 runnings of my Squadron-rules B-17 games at local cons!

Playtest files for this game will be going out to play testers on Tuesday. We'll be testing the single mission mechanics. Bob is working on the squadron rules.

Bob Best has taken over from Shawn who had to drop out. Movement is slow, but movement nonetheless. As for the job search, it appears my luck is changing. I will know next week.

I love the AH B-17 game!  This sounds even better.  I hope this game comes out soon!

Comment by Steve Dixon on July 4, 2014 at 7:14am

Ron, thanks. Nothing can be done with the game right now -- not until I get the files from Shawn and see what remains to be done. As for my area of expertise, Tech support in storage is not it! Rather than explain it here you can check out my resume at
