November 2018 #Kickstarter & Preorder Update

 Total Games On Order = 22

(Wargames 18 / Boardgames 3 / RPG 1)

This month there were two new games ordered (AuZtralia and Paper Wars 84 – FINNISH CIVIL WAR) with AuZtralia already delivered!

Theoretically, six of these games should deliver before the end of the year. Theoretically…but looking more unlikely based on the more recent updates. I think I will be lucky to see three of them.
