The Napoleonic game, called Campaigns on the Elbe (1806 and both 1813), is also done and awaiting playtesting but that won't start until the WW2 game (edit - PFE) wraps up. Matrix/Slitherine feels its best to do one after the other.

If this information is still relevant and the 'Elbe' game is awaiting play testing, I am sure that there are people on this forum who could help.

I guess the burning question is whether Frank will be using the updated COTD game engine with new scenarios for 1806/1813, or further updating the game engine for new features and possibly retrofitting some of that back into COTD?  I suspect resolving the issues with COTD over the past year was a distraction, but hopefully for the best.  It would be nice to get an update.

Agreed, but it was a necessary distraction, as there were significant issues to be dealt with, to bring 'CotD' into a playable condition and there still seems to be issues with PBEM. Hopefully these corrections will feed into the further development of the game, assuming that development is still in prospect.

I just thought that it was an interesting comment that 'Elbe' had been completed and was merely waiting for PFE to be issued, which was some time ago. I am sure that there would be plenty of play-testers available if there was a game ready to launch.

I do love this game

I'm ready to buy other games about other theaters

Ready to do some playtesting, but I'm not good in digital matters

How I so wish this was true.
I would give anything for a continuation of the "Campaigns on the Danube"series.
Imagine a full game incorporating all the Campaigns of the period

I`m sure as has been mentioned that many here would contribute as would be required .

The 'WW2 game' (Piercing Fortress Europa) has been issued and since updated, leaving both games (PFE and CotD), in a good playable condition, as I am attempting to demonstrate in the CotD AAR. Both games may still have some development and wrinkles to iron out, but these games would benefit greatly from expansion into additional campaigns. The scenario files of both games contain teasers, CotD has '1805' listed, PFE has slots for 'Tunisia', 'France 1943', 'France 1944' and 'Invasion'. Are these just names, or do actual expansions exist, even if in incomplete form, either way the developers should confirm the status of these games to put us out of or misery.

With Chemkid's graphic mods both games are a joy to play, with visual appeal as well as a good game system.

I am a WEGO fan, but believe that these titles have been the best in class and it would be a tragedy to let them fade away without further development.

Someone at least tell us 'yes' or 'no' !
