Ludo and bulk order updates

Ludo Outaouais is going well: lots of fun, lots of opportunity to practice my French (which I value these days), and hey... the door prizes there are teh awsum! Admission: $30. Door prize: Red Dragon Inn 2 (which is playable independent of Red Dragon Inn 1), sticker price at Fandom II $33. I've played quite a few games including a newly-designed prototype (Speculation, a decent stock market-themed game for which the designer was still soliciting suggestions) and a good slice of a Serious Wargame (Storm over Stalingrad), in which I held my own... when we had to pack up for the night, it was pretty much as nail-bitingly close as it was in history. My Russians were backed up to the river and just barely hanging on to control of most of the shore against superior German firepower and support, having fallen back through most of the city. Reinforcements were on the way, but would there be anything to reinforce? Nice tension in the game, and easy to pick up by wargame standards, but perhaps not by eurogame standards. dagibbs, I think you would like this one if you could find willing victims. I think it may be a next step up from Twilight Struggle.

The bulk order is now so close to $2000 that I can be pretty assured that it will get there, even if I have to do the driving. Accordingly, here are people's new totals and order status information!
