Totaler Krieg! News:Where they're playing TK
Totaler Krieg! is being played in the open gaming areas of the World Boardgame Conference and will be featured at DragonCon.
Revised TK2 Playtest Kit Available Soon!
After six months of playtesting and pounding on the last playtest kit, this latest offering, dubbed 'v2,' is ready to rock and roll. You'll find a lot of streamlining in most places, a new 'natural surrender' model for Britain and Russia, and revised orders of battle for many countries. Can't wait to see it? Click here.

We have identified the problem with the card collation in the TK! reprint copies that people are asking about. The Western Allied group has 9 duplicated cards. The half sheet that was printed two up (one whole sheet) was not cut before the printer collated. So there are 9 duplicated cards in that set.
So, no one needs to panic. No one is getting gypped or missing any cards in their new copy of Totaler Krieg!. What's happening is that they're getting extra (albeit duplicate) cards that they should simply ignore.
That's right, Decision Games has finally reprinted Totaler Krieg!. Be sure to contact them directly to order a copy at www.decisiongames.com or check with your local game store.

Where you should buy all your games on the Internet is from Funagain Games. They're my one-stop source for all my Euro games, and now they carry wargames. If you want to cut to the chase and order a copy of Totaler Krieg! right now, just click here. You can even post your own mini-review of Totaler Krieg! there for other possible purchasers to ponder, if you like! (Hey, I'd appreciate it if you would at least zap on over there and post your own mini-review.)
Let me tell you about Funagain games. Not only have I always gotten great prices and service from them (as you'll soon discover), their game counselors have listened to me describe my tastes in games and have made several excellent recommendations. Face it, anyone who can sell me games for groups as divergent as my gaming buddies, my wife, and our 6-year old daughter can enjoy with me is okay in my book (we're still cracking up playing Carabande). I like them so much I volunteered to be an 'associate' and spread the word about their good service and prices. Clink on their logo and give them a try.
The best discussions of this (and any other wargame) are always found at ConsimWorld. You'll see a list of links in the left margin. Under "Community," select the Discussion Board link. After you log in (there's no fee or anything to join), select Boardgaming / Individual Game or Series Discussion / Era: World War II Individual Game / Global or Multi-Front. On that list will be the Totaler Krieg! discussion board where the designers and expert players of the game will be happy to answer your questions.
[Sal] Vasta's Law #1: Just because I've played a lot and know what to do, doesn't mean I win a lot. Because, in the end, I still have to roll dice.
Vasta's Law #2: It doesn't matter what the game situation is; it never goes easy for me.
Vasta's Law #3: Despite the actual odds, the chance of me rolling something bad is always at least 50%. And whatever is left over is the chance of me rolling something disastrous.
