What is most likely the final version of Picket Duty has been sent to playtesters. This is to make sure all flows as intended. We're close gents! Thanks for your pre-orders!

The final rules are nearing completion for final playtesting. The map has been tweaked, as has tables, charts, and all counters. Will be sending out the zip file to playtesters this weekend.

I am always ready for some play testing.  I have the old file and ready to sail.  

Thank you,

Open playtest session did not happen. It's being rescheduled due to personal circumstances. FYI - main damaged chart has been redone...after many playthroughs I was not satisfied with the outcomes, and it was a bit unwieldy.

For those who were playtesting, please send me an email so I can send the latest files to you. My old computer crashed and I was unable to recover email items.

I will be holding an open playtest session of Picket Duty sometime in July. I will have two copies of the game available. It will be held in Peachtree City, Georgia, so for those in the metro Atlanta area you are most welcome. Exact date, time and location in Peachtree City will be announced shortly.

Testing will be be using the final rules to work out last minute kinks. A second set of eyes never hurts!

I want to thank Legion Wargames for providing the test copies.

PD presales now at 147. Slowly climbs each week. At the present rate, this game could see publication late this year or early 2013.

Kim, Compass Games and CSW "The Hunters" appears to have that ground covered fairly well! After the remake of B17QOTS, I am shifting my attention to the Eastern Front and partisan warfare.

Steve, your next project should and must be submarine duty, no?
