Physical Orders on Back-Order (temporarily)

Gary Grigsby’s War in the East: The German-Soviet War 1941-1945 is a turn-based World War II strategy game stretching across the entire Eastern Front. Gamers can engage in an epic campaign, including division-sized battles with realistic and historical terrain, weather, orders of battle, logistics and combat results.

The critically and fan-acclaimed Eastern Front mega-game Gary Grigsby’s War in the East just got bigger and better with Gary Grigsby’s War in the East: Don to the Danube! This expansion to the award-winning War in the East comes with a wide array of later war scenarios ranging from short but intense 6 turn bouts like the Battle for Kharkov (1942) to immense 37-turn engagements taking place across multiple nations like Drama on the Danube (Summer 1944 – Spring 1945).

Physical Orders on Back-Order (temporarily)

Post by Erik Rutins »

Hi everyone,

We've sold out the first shipment of printed manuals we sent to our warehouses by air. The sea shipment with the rest is due to arrive on December 17th. In the interim, we are taking physical orders but they will not ship out until the second shipment of manuals arrives on the 17th. Thanks for your patience.

Regards,

- Erik

Did we get T-shirts, got to have a T-shirt...Oh and the beer mug...Hell, send me anything you got...lol...Then I can say to Sandra, see baby, I did earn something for the over two years I spent testing this...Women are funny, they just don't get men's dreams. I dreamed of being a tester for Gary and Joel for 20 years. Now I am, 6 months on AWD, 17 months on WBTS and 28 months on WitE...Whats weird is Sandra hasn't giving me the boot, shes a keeper...

Don't tell her, it gives you a chance to hide in your room for a day or more. Just say baby it was so nice of you to get me this, or is it allow me to get this. If you tell her she'll be pissed...Then what? We'll have to call 911 for you...

Days ago it was mentioned that about 1900 units of Bomb Alley were sold; I guess this will do a bit better than that. [:)]

It also helps that the game is set in its own window. when she comes in to the study I can minimize the screen & pull up something else it won't last though but I do have contigencies in place, body armour & secure locks as well as the ability to run very very fast.

Do what I did as a kid.  My mom told me they told me to express gratitude for every gift at Christmas so after opening each gift I would exclaim (on my own initiative), "OH JUST WHAT I ALWAYS WANTED!!!" 

She told me after about the 5th time I exclaimed the exact same thing, no one was happy with me.  So, you can open your WITE and say that... then duck.

Exactly the same for me, although no need to tell her. She never looks close enough to tell the difference between the AE map and this one, but I will wrap it for myself under the tree.
