Play? I Ain’t Got Time to Play.


BREAK BREAK BREAK

SITREP 20230705 1631ZT:

1. 1985:Under an Iron Sky resisted the enemy assault for 23 minutes, 1985:Sacred Oil heroically stood for 60 minutes. There are no survivors.
2. US POMCUS for Less Than 60 Miles 2nd Echelon has been overran.
3. The remaining copies of  Less Than 60 Miles 2nd Echelon will be shipped from FRANCE.

END


Since Thin Red Line Games started, I’ve had this insane habit to keep some copies in “strategic reserve” for any eventuality: SACEUR asking one to decorate his office, sudden collapse of the frontline, conventions….you never know!

This kind of behaviour has been sometime criticized, as just a few days after you’ve paid 400 bucks for a 1985:Under an Iron Sky copy on the private market, I suddenly announce that there’s “some reserve copies available”…Of course, at 4AM in your time zone.

In short, I’m a pain in the ass…and here’s another chance to prove it beyond any possible doubt! Sorry for that 🙂

I’ve finally realized that the time I can dedicate to conventions is very limited, so there’s no point in keeping several copies aside for similar events. Therefore, I’ve just committed the following to the FEBA:

There’s just a few copies, I hope they will be still there when you read this….and Please be aware that everything will be airlifted from Europe, so it’s not going to be cheap for US and Canada!

  1. Under the Iron Sky! Done! Boom! The last one I was looking for!

  2. By all the gods of cardboard war!!!!! Yessss!!!
    Now you just need to find those few copies of The Dogs of War and Die Festung Hamburg hiding around 😉

    1. I actually have some, but cannot commit them as I’m waiting for news from NATO SHAPE…seriously!

      1. Ha! I guess they have to take precedence;) they are wonderful simulations and games.

  5. Have the copies of Sacred Oil and Under an Iron sky sold out?

    1. Hi John! I’m afraid 1985:UAIS was gone after 23 minutes, 1985:SO after 60!

  15. I’m holding out for the full Mutually Assured Destruction, combining all three games into one monster. TRL did mention in the past that they might be doing this in the future, and I’m ready to commit all reserve echelon forces to this objective time now.
