Does any1 still play with lif?

It is not part of MWIF Product 1.

Because the leaders interact with so many rules, a lot of code would have to be added to support them. The raw data for the leaders is already coded (as a data set which the program can read and store as internal variables), including all the capabilities of each leader. But new graphics would have to be added to render the counters and I would have to figure out how to add them to each hex, and elsewhere.

But personally, speaking as a player, I would like to include with them in a game as an optional rule.

I was going to suggest using 1 leader per side chosen randomly or by vote (1 Axis, 1 Allied) since their abilities can be overwhelming. 1 per side would add just enough spice to make it interesting.

maybe by the number of times this question gets asked? half-serious here actually, this question appears on the yahoo wif-list a lot too. if it was 200 per question, it would be past half-way there I think.

my next WiF order will probably be Khaki in Flames but ME looks more appealing every time I drool over it.

Here is the text from my last reply from ADG (on August 18th):

Gidday Andrew,

I'll do a manual count soon and put the scores up in the products section to give you an idea how we are going. Of the games it ooks like WiF Blitz will be the first produced but we are still looking at a publication date some time in 2011 (graphics, printing and distribution usually takes around 6 months).

Thank you for yoru continuing support for our games.

Regards
Harry Rowland

I asked Harry Rowland if he could update the nos for the 1000 games. Looks like Khaki In Flames will be out late 2011 and WIF Blitz in early 2012. Unfortunately the Master Addition total orders have barely moved since December though......

Anyone heard any update on Wif Blitz in recent months? The ADG website hasn't updated since February.

Euhmmm. This looks like another "mega" game, for which my wife will not evacuate her in house office, my son will not abandon the attic, and the master bed room is only totally mine, if I'm going for a divorce...

I'll pass and wait for this computer game to finish... Even with extended monitors on the computer desk, I wouldn't need a very large room to stash the game, let alone find people to play it with...

does 1000 projects were dead, before they were though up.

there simply not, that many people that likes that kind of games.

and they don't advertise for them. so it is really a small community that know about the games

I agree on the Master Edition. But Blitz is the other direction- it looks like WIF lite, theoretically you could play out the war in about a weekend (or two). I could just about run to that these days whereas the last game of WIFFE (+DODIII) I played went on about 2 1/2 years and never reached a satisfactory conclusion...

(I object to their development of Blitz. Its a diabolical ploy to stunt the commitment of would be experts & convert us into amateurs akin to "axis & allies" type of newbs).

Advance order total - 17 Sep 2012

UPDATE! Target reached. Printing in preparation.

Due to its lower relative printing cost in comparison to the other A1000 games, we have reached our target to print Khaki in Flames. We are now finalising the counters for printing and we expect it to be available for general sale November 2012. The special advance order price is still available until November 1 2012.

Countersheet Manifest

CS 1 - World in Flames (WiF CS2)/Factory in Flames (CS39)

CS 2 - Ships in Flames (CS20)

CS 3 - SiF (CS21)/Planes in Flames (CS9)/Carrier Planes in Flames (CS29)

CS 4 - America in Flames (CS28)/Africa Aflame (CS14)/Asia Aflame (CS15)/Mech in Flames (CS23)

CS 5 - Patton in Flames (CS35)/KiF optional units (NEW!)

CS 6 - Cruisers in Flames (CS36 & 37)/Convoys in Flames (CS37 & 38)

Victory!! Excellent! Now Ill be the first in our club to have it!! muhahahahaha!!
