He used the word SORRY!

I bet it is some sort of take on that classic game of Sliiiiiiding pawns!

Eric is already giving us a "teaser" by refusing to answer any questions about the upcoming game. (I'll go ahead and start a rumor... it's about GIANTS. No, wait... it's about BIGFOOT! Hang on... it's about an average-sized fellow who finds a very small town. Take your pick Razz )

I was hoping they were going to announce that with the carrying case for M'44 they were going to release a British North African/MED expansion, complete with British Mini's.

But who knows a Big Foot game could be cool.

Thanks for the link.

So, it has nothing to do with Bigfoot? It's just that the game box will be BIG....

That would be just about my fondest desire for a new game. I've always had a soft spot for fantasy battle games. The idea of getting Richard Borg's fantasy version of the C&C system with DoW's production values and support... Very Happy

How many components could this game possibly have if it needs a box of those proportions? Shocked

Further speculation is running rampant on BoardGameGeek.com. quite a few others are putting out there that they believe DOW does have the rights to C&C: Fantasy and the name of the game will be "Battle Lore" In fact, a Yahoo group has formed called BattleLoreDOW!

Good friend Frank Branham has just mailed me this link to the US trademark system:
http://tess2.uspto.gov/bin/showfield?f=doc&state=98sokh. 2.2

With "Battlelore" made a trademark for DoW and the BattleloreDOW Yahoo!Group it seems impossible to get around the fact that we finally are getting the C&C fantasy system.

I just hope this won't take too much time away from the production of Memoir'44 expansions...

Sad Bummer, I was hoping for Richard Borg to expand into WWII Naval warfare. Oh well I guess I will save $50.

Considering that it has been announced as "a system", you're going to save MUCH MORE. Wink

My question is, why have DOW been so secretive about the game? I'd think that early information would create buzz and sell more games in the long run.

If Battlelore is indeed the Bigfoot, I can't wait! I would love to see any new Command and Colors game, and I think fantasy would be a popular choice with roleplayers and CCGers.

Be sure they'll give us plenty of "teasers" and info when they'll think it'll be more "profitable" to do so (their marketing division seems to know what to do and how to do it Wink ).

EDIT: typos...

One of the trademark sites showed this:

Quote:

Current Status: Newly filed application, not yet assigned to an examining attorney.


So I assume they were going to wait until things were more official. And like Luke said, marketing was going to want to release this on their time table. Look at the teasers that we got for Cleopatra and the society of architects.

Surely something to do with the Napoleonic period would have done better. I know fantasy is big, but M44 is a war game. It has been so successful I can't help but feel that branching out into 'Fantasy' is a bit of a gamble. Battlecry, also a wargame, was very popular too.
Hopefull RB will keep the M44 expansions coming and use his undoubted talent to provide us with a Napoleonic masterpiece!!!

I am in Europe, with little web access until mid next week. Information on this project (whatever it might be Rolling Eyes ) will follow shortly thereafter. Everything's coming together. Razz

So how do you keep an idiot in suspense? Tease a response for the end of August and keep me waiting well into September. Sad

speaking of plastic... I'm hoping that the minis are pre painted. The mini shown on the blog isn't painted, but I hope the final product is. I'd hate to have to buy a set of painted minis (shadows over camelot)... but I would!
