40 years of Wargaming - Gary Grigsby's anniversary

Post by Roby7979 »

Matrix Games is proud to announce a celebration event, marking Gary Grigsby's 40th anniversary as a wargame designer and developer, starting from the publication of his first wargame, Guadalcanal Campaign.

This week, from July 11th to July 18th, we will celebrate this 40th anniversary of Gary Grigsby’s work, starting with SSI and continuing with 2by3 Games and Matrix Games over the last 20 years.

Great things will happen on our website and on our Social Media channels and we invite you to join us and check in every day for something new.

We will retrace decades of wargaming history and milestone releases from Gary Grigsby and will speak also about the evolution of his work and future projects, with the special participation of Joel Billings and Gary Grigsby in a video interview.

Every day we will rediscover one Gary Grigsby game from the seven we have chosen as the most significant of his work together with Matrix Games.

During this week also a sale will take place on our website. All Gary Grigsby games will be discounted (up to 80% off).

Moreover, for each Gary Grigsby game added to the cart, you’ll get for free Gary Grigsby's War Between the States. The game will be added automatically to your cart.

Don't forget to jump on our Twitch channel https://www.twitch.tv/slitherinetv

Thank you for the sale! :)

But shouldn't Gary Grigsby's War in the West have a bigger discount than 30% ?

Cudos to Matrix Games for recognizing Gary Grigsby's 40th anniversary since his game Guadalcanal Campaign. His games have been a big part of my life, literally tens of thousands of hours. Thank you Gary.

I'm wondering who thought it was a good idea to charge more for GG's War Between the States on its own than for DLC for GG's War in the East.. which currently includes the former for free as well.

Was it to make the offer seem more valuable??

Steel Tigers maybe? :lol:

Happy birthday Gary, still playing WITE number 1 and looking more and more at WITE number 2. Will wait first DLC to jump in I think.

Was War Plan Orange: Dreadnoughts in the Pacific 1922 - 1930 not a Gary Grigsby game? Would be nice to see that included on that sale, too. Please?

Do I need to add War Between the States to my shopping cart to get it for free, or will it be sent automatically?

It is automated. Just add another game and it is in the shopping card for free.

Just don't use a promo code, or the price will go up!

Cant purchase game. Keep getting ERROR message when processing at check out.
Happens on a PC (Win 10), iPAD and Android Smartphone. Used 2 different credit cards and attempted purchase at MATRIX ad SLITHERINE! AND... Attempted purchase as Member and GUEST!!!
I have a support ticket in (2022071310000519) but want to take advantage of the sale price. Hence my impatience. :(
Cant be anti virus since iPad and Android have different OS then PC.
As I recall this happened a ways back before but do not remember how this was resolved.

When you say you texted support, did you e-mail support@matrixgames.com? The store is working, so I would suggest trying a different browser and making sure nothing on the site is being blocked.
