    True…so late July we should have some pics of the board, pieces and material at least.  Maybe a peek at the global rules and such too.  Oh boy… only 4 looooooooooooooong months to go!!! 😞

    I guess that means that your A&A 50 Anniversary Edition Reprint has been pushed back as well :roll:

    No, I think that no-print is right on schedule.  :lol:

    The 50th anniversary reprint will come out after the 100th anniversary edition.

    C’mon guys don’t give up hope yet on the AA50 reprint…Oh wait I forgot this is WOTC were talking about… OK then give up- I have. :? 😞


  • Questioneer, Weren’t you the leader of that cause?


  • @Yoper:

    The whole A&A system is now based on the rules that were designed for AA50.  You need for that game to be in circulation to flesh out the A&A line up.  Base game= AA42, Advanced game= AA50, Theater specific/Global game= AAP 40, AAE 40, AA 40 Global.

    My thoughts exactly, Yope.  I’m sad I got on the A&A bandwagon too late to get AA50 without having to pay hundreds of dollars for one of the collectibles now…  😛

    @Brain:

    Questioneer, Weren’t you the leader of that cause?

    Yes, he was.

    And they actually gave an “official” answer saying that they were going to eventually reprint AA50.

    Sorry Charles (squirecam), but I don’t think that they specifically were jerking us around and lied about a reprint while waiting for the AA40 games to come out .

    They may have made a commitment to a reprint at the time and are now being forced to reevaluate it in light of other circumstances, but I think that they were sincere when they said it.  The problem is they have a track record of not doing what they say they will do.

    They should reprint the AA50 game like they said they would do.  I can accept that it may take awhile for them to get to it, but they should follow through on their initial statement.

    Well said my friend, that is exactly my feeling and thoughts.  Of course, you can’t call the reprint “Anniversary”- however you can change it to “Deluxe” version.

    When or if they do reprint it you can probably see that:

    1. It will be cheaper- more like $60 bucks than $100 originally.

    2. Because it will be cheaper it will actually BE CHEAPLY MADE (don’t expect the nice components as in the first print- expect a lot of things to be “cheaped out” as far as material and components).

    3. At least we will have the reprint so I guess we can’t complain too much.  It is a great game with solid mechanics-one of the better versions if not the best. 🙂


  • So what are you guys saying that there will or will not be a reprint?

    Stay on topic. This is only a thread about when AAE40 is coming out. Talk about AA50 reprint in another thread.

    We are just comparing past results when dealing with release dates. 😉


  • @squirecam:

    @idk_iam_swiss:

    so when will get get info now that our one source of previwing the game is gone now

    The day it comes out.  :roll:

    A month later there will be an official post on the AH boards announcing the game as an “upcoming product”.  :x

    That was funny! :lol:

  • '10

    What is the latest news on release date AAE40?


  • i heard mid august.


  • 90 days to never


  • @idk_iam_swiss:

    i heard mid august.

    Where did you hear this? Quote your sources.


  • It was me- I know people close to the project- Larry calls me the “godfather” 😄
    Seriously.


  • @questioneer:

    So are you saying Larry said August.

    No he said Larry calls him the “godfather”


  • no common sense tell should tell you august. They said third quarter ( summer). Recall that this company isnt known for working for  its fanbase. Which this game is geared towards. so logic should dictate. and i heard from a freind who operates a game store in CA that they hadnt recieved any notices for june , and july is coming up…so… probably august although playing this thing on the 4rth is not ruled out completely


  • My FLGS today said AAE40 was pushed back to August 18 and not to be surprised if it is pushed back further than that. He also told me about a month ago that AA50 will be reprinted for a Christmas release this year. That information came from his WotC sales rep. I question both pieces of information since the release dates are so close to each other and the money to spend on both will be a lot to spend in a few months of time. I am just going to play AA42 for now and when AAE40 is released I will pick it up. No room to set up and play AAP40 right now since my game room is being occupied by a tenant until about February or March next year. No hurry here to pick up AAE40.


  • Good! push it back until my mother forgets how much I spend on Pacific. Then I can have both!

    If the AA50 Reprint info is true- I would bet that the reprint would be a “cheapened” version of the 08 edition- smaller box, foldable map, thinner cardstock, battlestrips instead of boards, IC, AA chits and other concessions as they made in AA42 and AAP40.  Then the printing of 2 games in 4 months would make sense.  Remember AA42 and AAP40 were printed within the same time frame last year!  So he maybe telling the truth.

    Here’s to hoping!
    🙂


  • Well I hope the AA50 reprint isn’t exactly the same as the original one since it was supposed to be a limited edition.


  • I think that now they know they can cut corners and still sell games so it won’t be the same. Just my opinion.

    They definitely need a serious competitor.


  • FMG BABY, FMG!!!


  • @questioneer:

    FMG BABY, FMG!!!

    Where I live, that stands for somesthing obscene. But I know what you mean


  • @questioneer:

    FMG BABY, FMG!!!

    How about FFG? The quality of their game Tide of Iron is enough for me to say that that would be a good company to make AA games. I recently picked up ToI and love it. The plastic pieces are great.
