My guess is that the statement means they won't be taking orders until Sept. Then you can order through their website.

Dammit. I would never have the time to play a monster like that. But it sure is a gorgeous piece of boardgaming art.

I just got a BGG message with code to order my copy. 

Now I have to figure out how to come up with 160 Euros, plus shipping...oh well.  I'd sell one of my children, but they have already left the house... ;)

Got mine as well! My transaction was already cleared with ‘finance dept’. 😜

For those not having reserved for the second run and still want to buy, go NOW to trlgames.com. Only very few copies are up gor grabs.
I read 15 of which I know for a fact 1 is already gone, so allegedly 14 left.

Man, that looks seriously tasty, but that's an awful lot of money for something I'll never get to a gaming table.

I imagine playing that with 3 people on a side would be a gaming experience of a lifetime.

I picked up the big box!

Production quality is good, although the last row in a section on the counter sprue isn’t cut as neatly as the other rows leaving a little too much of the counter attached to the sprue. Need to be cautious there when cutting them loose.
The countersheets have a nice glossy finnish and are of good thick quality cardboard.

I really like the graphics on the maps. The two big ones are huge! I am not sure anyone would have the room to lay them out for a full campaign on any normal table! 😄

The Second Echelon came with the latest living rules version as of now, which is a nice touch to have in hardcopy version.

The box is unusually large. And tbh raised my eyebrows a bit when I opened the lid, because the contents leaves lots of room.
No items were damaged inside, but I can see this happening during rough transport, which is a shame for such an expensive boardgame.

The scenariobook with designer’s notes is well written and an interesting read.
Now comes diving into the rules and play this bad boy!
