• Just received my two copies of Europe today.  Just to let you guys know, I opened the first box and much to my disappointment.  NO FRENCH PIECES INSIDE!!!  I immediately opened the second box and all the pieces were there.

    I contacted WOTC and they said they would send me the missing French pieces, however it would take 2-3 business WEEKS to get to Indiana.


  • what a nightmare

    Well you can’t blame Cal Moore. He didn’t work on AAE40 and thats why it has no typo’s ( that so far we have not found).


  • It’s a good thing you bought two  😄

    No kidding, but don’t worry too much, the French pieces never are on the board that long.  😄


  • Mine is missing all the UK’s units.  They told me I’d get them in 7 to 10 days.  I’m in Minnesota.

    Neither are the Canadian uni–-oh wait a minute


  • Where at in Indiana do you live Eville Troopers?


  • I am in Evansville.  Can’t get much further south and still be in Indiana.  I actually bought two copies so I can give one to my brother in law.  Heading up to Bloomington, IN to get a few games in this weekend.

    Hahah. I see what you did there, UN.

    Seriously though Eville, it is good you bought two and least WOTC is giving you replacements.

    Heh, better the UK than German/Russian/Italian pieces.  At least with UK units you can use the Pacific units.  (90% of the pacific UK units are never used anyways)


  • thats a bummer,i never missed units in my games,touch wood

    Yeah you are right it could be worse.  I’ve already taken the UK units from my other games.  I’m just surprised I didnt have to make a u tube video of Hitler reaming out his people (like the jap tatical bomber issue) in order to get them to send me new ones!


  • North Texas here and all contents of both games are present and accounted for!!
    Thank God!

  • There is one misspelling in the rulebook - but it is a common one. The writer describes Finnish people (Finns) as “Fins”


  • So the French are missing?  Insert your own joke.

  • Careful! You might insult the French, and then they would be angry enough to surrender en masse…

    Dude, no offense, but the French have to take it like men that they were not exactly shining examples of bravery in WWII. Whether political/cultural/societal whatever, they flat out failed on a variety of levels.

    Such epic failness has led to jabs, comments, and winks. Just accept it and move on.

    It’s l’honneur. French does this in order for the words to flow better.

    Anyway, in their defense, the Germans had actually prepared for war for a couple of years and Germans had air superiority.

    Because that whole French Resistance thing never exited, amirite? I suppose all that courage to join up knowing full well you would be branded as a rebel and traitor, oh no, not really a “shining example”. Oh yes, and the Free French fighting outside France were all just cowards at Bir Hakeim and Monte Cassino, I suppose? I guess my grandfather was just a wuss, huh?

    You know, I really wasn’t going to say anything until you provoked it. Your ignorance is overwhelmingly pitiful.


  • Yeah, don’t insult the French any further, or he’ll copy and paste pages of the manual given to American troops in France in 1946 who were complaining about the French

    I have a question: why would members of the resistance be labled “traitors”? They’re not going against their country.

    112 Gripes About the French. I actually got a copy of that from a friend’s grandfather, who was American.  😄

    And hey, the people who wrote that book are much more able to defuse stereotypes about the French than I am, so that’s why I instead cite it instead of ranting myself.

    I have a question: why would members of the resistance be labled “traitors”? They’re not going against their country.

    They were labeled traitors in Vichy France and in the Occupied Zone (though Vichy held legal authority in the Occupied Zone too) by Vichy and German propaganda. They were branded as terrorists and dangerous to the “peace” of France. Some people didn’t think them terrorists, but didn’t approve of their actions: countless people were executed and several towns razed to the ground in reaction to Resistance actions.

    Now, by 1943, after Vichy was occupied, there was a lot more support for the Resistance.

    Free French soldiers were branded as rebels and traitors as well to the “rogue” de Gaulle. They joined up knowing perfectly well that their country’s government would want their head.
