Limey Yank Games
Legion Wargames has Ici c'est la France (2nd Edition) and Dien Bien Phu shipping but still available at the pre-order price of $40 and $45 repectively + shipping - with an additional offer on Tonkin discounted to $40 + shipping if you pay for it at the same time as your Ici pre-order.
The VAT busting deal that both are offering ( to the UK and EU) is that, for a relatively small additional shipping surcharge, they will pay both the VAT and the handling fee for the games.
These publishers are able to offer this service as a result of an arrangement they have with Limey Yank Games. This service is available to all LYG sponsors so, if you want to support your favourite company's pre-order programme but find it just too expensive, lobby the company to take advantage of the service if they are already and LYG sponsor - or suggest they consider becoming a sponsor if not so already.
This way we can hopefully revitalise the UK/EU pre-ordering of US games. Show your support for the idea by getting that order in .
Randy, Knut and I are working hard to try and get Toulon, 1793 ready for a pre-Christmas release.
Whilst acieving 250 pre-orders is now academic it would be gratifying to reach that number ASAP and we need just 9 more. This will be the first game designed by LYG and will be published by Legion Wargames. The game is also featured on BGG and, as of June, there is a review of the game available - and check out issue #2 of War Diary - see below.
Registrations have seen a new lease of life which is very welcome; if you've not done so yet then please use the 'Register' feature at the top of the screen to do so - and remember to include a brief gaming bio so we know you're real.
My thanks as always to our visitors, sponsors, contributors and now donors too.
