The big news in this month's
update is that we are FINALLY shipping a bunch of our mid-late summer games, and
that we have a cool new P500 game to add to the list this time. Here are a few
other news bytes that we hope you'll find of interest:
Reprints in the Pipeline
squirreled away sufficient funds to reprint a few of our out of stock games
later this year! In addition to the reprints that we've previously announced,
you should also see the following items back in stock before the end of
additional Combat Commander Battle Packs (#1 - Paratroopers and #2 - Stalingrad) when we
produce the SeaLion BP in November
CC:Europe and CC:Mediterranean in
Species in December (this one is not currently out of stock, but
our quantities are very low and sales continue to be excellent, so we're going
to need more.)

Species for iPad Update
don't have a signed agreement yet, but we have agreed in principle with a game
development company to work with us to update the Dominant Species
for iPad code and provide ongoing support and updates for the
game. We'll have a press release with details when the contracts are signed, but
for now I wanted you guys to know that we've found what I think is an
outstanding partner to move forward with us on the Dominant Species app, as well
as others in the future.
an update on orders for the Mounted Maps we're looking to produce for several of
our popular games. Remember, we need to get about 200 orders per title before we
can print these maps profitably at these low P500 prices. And we don't intend
to print extras, unless the printers just happen to send us some "overs", so if
you want to get one of these, please pre-order, as it won't be available from
game stores or probably even from us except as a pre-order item.
you'd like to order a mounted map for any of these games, you can click any of
the links below and that will take you to the P500 order page for that item.
Thanks for making your P500 orders soon so we can get these printed and out to
you as soon as possible.
are the maps we are wanting to produce, along with order totals and a +/-
tracking orders since last month:
Stalin's War 158 orders
Bomber Command 156 orders
(Note that this is a two-sided mounted map)
