That's not a correct release date. While we are getting close to release, it will be a few more weeks.

Regards,

Slitherine does this all the time. I don't understand why they can't keep their release dates up to date. They are much slower with information about their own games than Matrix. It's just kind of frustrating. I was prepared to get this game next Monday. Please Slitherine, at least keep your release dates accurate, or just say "Coming soon" if you don't have a firm date.

^DC Blitzkrieg Warsaw to Paris is superb in its own right. No reason not to pick it up now on sale. It doesn't sound like Case Blue is going to be a revolutionary advance over Warsaw to Paris, so it's not like time spent with the earlier game will be time wasted.

Just curious but where in the world do people format dates so that 11.06.12 = June 6, 2012? Not trying to be critical or picking a fight. I recall it may be European.

I suspect from what I have read that the new game will be more than just an expansion of the original Decisive Campaigns. An expansion usually is just a scenario add-on with perhaps minor improvements to the engine but this seems to be an incremental evolution to the engine with lots of new changes. Having said this I would encourage anyone on the fence to get the original game as others have. It is well worth the investment.

Erik, I know you probably can't answer this, but I have to try regardless. How close is CB to release? It's been several weeks since your last post. I'm sure there are many fans like myself that are eagerly waiting for this game!

Next Thursday, 6/28 is the anniversary for Case Blue. Wouldn't that be a cool date for release?!

That was the date we were originally aiming for, but we needed a bit more time to get the manuals printed (in full color!). We're making minor improvements and tweaks to the game and finishing up final beta testing, so I'd say mid-July is a good estimate.

Regards,

- Erik

I do appreciate the reply, Erik. I have to admit I feel like a kid again, waiting for a game to come out! Good clean fun though!

I sure hope it comes out sooner, but if waitng means a more polished game with color manuals, then I'll gladly be more patient!

The reason Ike postponed D-Day had nothing to do with the weather - he just wanted the Allies to turn up on the same day!

+1
LOL
It can sometimes be confusing to read 11.06.2012, because in europe it means eleven June. Day-Month-Year. But in the, uhm, not civilized part it means the sixth of Octobre 2012, Month-Day-Year. Even more confusing than Celsius and Fahrenheit.... I *always* have to google Fahrenheit to see how hot/cold it is in Celsius degrees

The UK does and it's far more logical having day,month,year than month, day, year.

Don't the Americans celebrate the "4th of July" for some reason.

Wouldn't that logically be 4/7 rather than 7/4 ?

Independence was obviously a bad idea for them

Actually Dale, it means the 11th day of the 6th month of the 12th year. In ascending order from smallest to largest. The only other logical way to do it would be to say 2012/6/11. Putting it in month/day/year order makes no sense at all ;) How did the Yanks come to rule the world???
