(Originally published 2 April 2013, bumped up to here for news.)
Referring to my post of November 23:
I have been informed that my game in issue #9, “Next War in Lebanon”, has been replaced by the publisher in the lineup with “Target: Iran”, a game by another designer that was originally for issue #17. Whether future military US/Israeli action against Iran is more likely than Israeli action against Hezbollah, I really can’t say. But I’m not the publisher either.
The more worrying thing is that Lebanon has been bumped back to #13, the issue slotted for Kandahar, and no word for now how far back that one will be bumped – perhaps to #17, which must now be vacant? Anyway, there will be an extra wait of 8 or 9 months for everything, but the good part of the news is that as far as I know all of the games will be published eventually. I’ll let you know more when I do, should be in a few weeks.
16 April – Edited to add: Okay, here is the lineup as she is goodly spocken now:
- Andartes (Greek Civil War) – #11, May-June 2014
- Next War in Lebanon (IDF in Lebanon 201?) – #13, Sep-Oct 2014
Kandahar (Afghanistan 2009-10) – #17, May-June 2015 Green Beret (Vietnam 1962-4) – #18, Jul-Aug 2015
So, another year to wait, but getting published is better than not.
20 June – edited to add: Today I was unofficially informed that Kandahar and Green Beret will not be published in Modern War, and these slots will be filled by other games by other designers. So it goes. Considering my options. Suggestions?
