    I’m officially not supposed to have it yet…  😄

    But, having now seen AA Global 1940 set up: holy guacamole! 😛

    Got it on 8/20
    I’m in Illinois
    Shipped to my house from online vendor.

    August 21,2010:
    Got the last one at a game store in the Twin Cities last night! Drove like a half hour (on the other side of town)  Really awesome looking set-up.  Still chincy with the tokens for AA, Industrial, Airbase & Naval base, but the card stock was a little heavier with cap on both sides instead of bare cardboard backed like Pacific was…

    Will be playing my first global game tonight with friends!

    Gahh!  I’m in Ontario and I called my game store to see if they had it early and they did…but someone snagged the copy before I could get it.

    i have received my copy of europe yesterday (21 august 2010)
    i live in holland

    August 23,2010:
    I got mine today… Monday August 23rd.

    I live in the Western US Territory of the game

    I picked it up at a local game store for 72 bucks.  In retrospect I’m soooo glad I didnt preorder online!

    August 23, 2010:
    On Monday Aug 23 the game store called and said my copy was in, with a note saying ‘go ahead and release it’. I only had time to glance at the rulebook. I live in Central United States territory. Originally, the game store said it would come in on Thursday the 26th. Things changed.

    August 24, 2010:
    I got mine on Monday afternoon. Called about 10 stores in a 30 mile radius that carry AA games (from AH site). From the calls I made I found out it was it was being shipped Fed-ex, and finely one said yeah we got it. It was a 30 mile trek from my house, but I got it home about 4:00 Monday afternoon. Set up both games on my pool-table, and it looks awesome. I play hockey Monday night, so didn’t get to start a game until I got home at about 11:00 that night. We played till about 4:00 am, and only got through 2 rounds. Both sides made some mistakes, so I think we may call it a practice game and start a new one tonight after work.

    August 24, 2010:
    Got mine yesterday.  Shipped the rest to FMG customers

    August 24, 2010:
    Purchased mine today, 8/24 at local hobby shop in Central U.S… They have 3 more available along with 2 aap40. setting up board now,will be playing this weekend. Good Luck!

    August 24, 2010:
    Picked up my copy from the local game store today.  Twas excellent.  Only sad thing is that I’m going to have to wait until AABattlemap comes out with a Global or Europe/Pacific combo map, as I appear to have emigrated to the far end of the universe here in Lubbock, TX.  (That or wait for TripleA.)

    Things I Have Noticed From Opening Up AAE40:

    The Russian battleship looks really retarted coming out of the bag (imagine a battleship with a big smokestack in the middle of it).

    There are no French infantry pieces with their hands held up in surrender.

    The German aircraft carriers look hella sexy compared to the US and UK ones.

    Germany’s artillery still looks just like an AA gun (stupid 88s, those WERE anti-aircraft guns with their barrels lowered to the ground!)

    Japan comes with WAYYYY too many units (compared to the other sides) for its theater.  Game Balance, Game Shlamance!

    UK’s rondels for both the European and Pacific theaters are EXACTLY the same (good luck putting the right rondels back into the right box!)

    The European US and France players share the same box (guess you’re not supposed to split up the French player with the UK).

    Further postings as events warrant!

    Local store, I reserved it a couple weeks in advance. It’s sad, there was a giant pile of untouched Europe 1940s and the employee got all excited when I decided to buy one. I don’t think anyone else bought one…:(

  • Did you delete the original thread? I don’t see it

  • I got my copy of Europe 1940 yesterday (8/24) at a local game store, in Los Angeles. (Pasadena actually) Out of 10 or 11 shops that I called, only one store had it in stock.

    That’s great news! It’s actually selling well everywhere other than Alberta it seems.

  • Got my 2nd copy from a local game store yesterday, set it up last night and it is awesome.

    Couldn’t wait for my 1st copy to arrive from FMG, I’m too impatient.  I don’t mind it though since I’ll use the French and Italian pieces so I’ll have twice as many as I need.  Also I’ll use the cardboard pieces as well since they are a lot nicer than Pacific.

  • I got mine 8/25 at around 3 p.m.  I ordered from Coolstuffinc. and UPS shipped it.  The box was badly damaged in one corner, but the actual game components are fine.

    Edit: Forgot to include that I live near Lansing, MI.
