Have a question?
Hi, I know this would be a weird question but which kind of sleeves did you use for the game?
I've sleeved a game with the remains and they fitted perfectly (better than Fantasy Flight ones).
Hi @Kenneth. Please, send us an email. Thanks
I just open the box in these 2 days and you only send me the 4 expansion that missed the based game, please help to follow
@Stealth7, I played solo for both sides, not AI, but generally the Italians put out artillery (strong defense 4) and radios and chewed up the buildings from afar, then the British Matilda finally got close and 3 carriers with heavy inf (2 HMGs abd 1 bazooka) rushed forward quickly while a camouflaged heavy reduced the range of artillery on the last building needing just 1 more hit to be destroyed. In the end the Matilda took out their radios, the armed Heavies took out the artillery and the carriers took out all the reinforcing infantry. Low Itailian AP vs high British at the end. The key was always looking at the armor and penetrations in play. Still could have gone to the Italians, they missed at least 3 shots on buildings. The British only used heavy inf and specials, no lights.
@Gary, I tried the Sidi Barrani as well (PvP) and the British had no chance. As everything for the Italians was 3 or less in points, they were deploying 1-2 units per turn, and once they got out 3 arty (Elephantino) the game was up. We made it to turn 8 or so before the Brits caved. Care to share how the British managed a win?
@Gary Loughran. Thank you for comment. We love that you like the game ;D
Played my first game solo, Sidi Barrani of the North Africa campaign. What a blast! Italians should probably have won but failed some artillery rolls that the British then negated to 15 turns with creative counter offensives, pretty darn cool how this game plays out!
@Pollepap - I agree. I had the Artbook arrive crushed and waterlogged (rain), sent them an email and a week later had the new one arrive.
Excellent service from Draco Ideas!
Got some damaged cards & tokens missing, I send an email and a few weeks later received the replacement parts in the mailbox.

Y no hay un pdf con las cartas de los Bison corregidos?
I sent you a PM regarding missing items. Thanks!!!
@daniel far too small for cards...
Got mine in Toronto, today.
@Gregg Anderson That box may be to hold the extra cards.
Got mine today in Grand Forks BC Canada. Looks fantastic! I was just wondering what the little cardboard box with the logo on it is for? It comes flat and you fold it together.... Is it for the dice?
Hi @Stealth7. Yes, please send me private message or an email. Thanks!
Is it possible to buy the English version of the game? (Have a friend who missed out) And how about the 2 player PVC map and associated terrain cards? Another player didn't order it, but after seeing mine he wants one.
Hi @David. The English version is a new edition and in this one we decided to keep the tiles without any connectors. Most of players seem to prefer this design rather than the original one and that's why we made the decision to change it. Also, it speeds up the setting of the board.
@Gary: Thanks, again. Can't keep up with all the comments.
@David, scroll down to May 18 comment from Draco.
It looks like the 16 map tiles didn't get their interlocking punch-outs. Was this a change that was communicated somewhere, and I missed it? All the videos and images I can find show them with the punch-outs, but those in my box do not have them.
They were a very thoughtful touch to keep a large playing area stable, and I'm kind of bummed they didn't make the production run.
An update: all bits accounted for. Everything looks great.
@Gary: Thanks. I was headed there next.
There is a card manifest pdf in the BGG 2GM game page "files" section. It is very helpful to find specific cards and check what you received. Also the T28 was renamed to T95.
Picked up from the post office today. A small bit of travel damage, but overall in good shape. I'm definitely in need of an exhaustive list of what should be included. I'm pretty sure bits are missing; I can't find any T28s, and 400 retweets should have included them. There's other stuff, but without a complete inventory it's hard to be certain.
Anyone has a breakdown of what a set of complete pack is supposed to include?
Hi @Greg. I sent you an email with tracking numbers
Any tracking numbers?
Hi. I live in Australia. Any eta on my game arrival here?
Received both of my packages on the same day. Everything looks great!
Awesome--thank you for the quick service. Once again, its a great way to learn to play. Another dream feature of an app would be a registry for finding other players in the area who ordered the card game and are looking to create play groups.
Hi @Jemal, Nerlaska say: "We have detected the bug. Apple has changed his ads function a few days ago. We are working with a new update to fix that problem. Thanks for your help"
Thank you for the quick response. I have an iPhone 6. It happens when I play Battle Royale against the computer. The screen transitions to the advertisement. The screen is black with the yellow word "advertisement" in the middle. The screen never cycles out. I try to restart the app and the screen is still there. I can usually get through a few turns and advertisements before this occurs.
Hi @Jemal. Thanks for contacting us. Firstly, let us tell you we are really sorry about the issues you're facing with the iOS APP. We'll address that later on.
In regards with the Sniper ability: it allows the unit to make an extra shot, i.e. an infantry unit equipped with the Sniper will be able to shoot twice, once with its regular main weapon and another with the sniper rifle, whose traits are included in the Additional Equipment card.
Now, to the digital world and talking about the crashes you're suffering. There is a known issue with a specific version of iPhone 5 that we are currently troubleshooting. Could you provide us more details as the iPhone model and iOS version installed? Also, when does the crash occur? Have you been able to identify a pattern? Does it crash only with the ads? Or does it happen when the app doesn't show ads?
Regret any inconvenience and thanks for your support.
Nerlaska & Draco Ideas
Hi @stu @all We are trying to contact again those few backers (by private message) that haven't sent an answer after the Pledge Manager (by email). Please, we kindly request to check your inbox if that's your case. Thanks
Was going to ask the same thing Paul. My guess is for all the tokens. It's too big for a stack of cards
Is there a specific use intended for the folded "crate" tuckbox?
hi realised I'd not sorted the extra paypal ££ needed - which I did early last week - do I get a notification about my payment? or a shipping notice or anything??
The rule book says that the sniper rifle token equips an infantry unit with a sniper rifle. Okay, but what abilities or modifiers does that grant to the unit? Side note, the i-phone app version is a great way to learn except that I am experiencing frequent crashes when the game goes to the advertisement--total lockup that forces me to delete the app and reload it. Thank you for your assistance.
Hi @Brad. Yes, you must receive another parcel
Second package (base game) arrived the first business day after the expansions, and everything's present and accounted for. Looking forward to giving it a try this weekend. Thanks!
I just got a fairly big package with all the expansions and the play mat, but no base game. Will that be coming separately or did something mess up?
Hi @Chris. Please, send me an email or PM for I can send you a new box and solve it
I've received both packages now. Second package was the base game. I have to say that I'm very disappointed in the packaging method used (items wrapped in bubble wrap in a plastic envelope). My expansions appear undamaged but the base game has minor bumps and bruises on multiple sides likely from impacts. Easily avoidable if boxed like every other game I've ever backed.
I find this very unfortunate as a collector that tried to keep my games in as close to pristine condition as possible.
Hi Daren. I will send you an email. You should receive 2 parcels
I just got my pledge today, or part of it? I'm not sure. But it isn't what I had ordered. Can someone please contact me at DarenKing77@verizon.net
Got my copy on Friday, and played my first game today. There's some discrepancies between the rulebook and the quick references, but overall I'm very happy with the game!
Thank you for doing such a great job, Draco.
Hi @Mantichor. The terrain tokens are included in all the expansions. We also have added more cards that initially announced during the KS campaign. In regards with the terrain cards (fortified, dunes, etc.) they are spread among the expansions. You can check type/amount of these cards in the Cards Manifest we have made public on the BGG website, in the Files Section of the game. Hope this helps.
