"The Sands of Sudan" rules sell out - but reinforcements are on their way...



The camels are waiting patiently for the rules to arrive back from the printers and then
its top speed off to the Post Office for mailing!  "Can you see anything coming down the Nile Gordon old chap?".
  Well if you told me when I started this project that the rules would sell out within three months of being published I would have said you had sand in your head...literally!

However that is exactly what has happened.  On the back of some excellent word of mouth between the wargaming fraternity and some additional publicity at Cancon in Australia (our big wargaming weekend) and through Miniature Wargames, the first print run is simply a memory.

Never mind though as another print run is due to be delivered this week and ready for immediate dispatch.  To all those patient souls who have paid and await the rules apologies for the additional time taken to get them out.  I have added in a explanatory "How to prepare your deck" card in the Random Events just to further clarify how to use them to their very best effect in your games.

A copy will be loaded up on the blog as well for those who received the first print run.

Will keep everyone posted on further developments.
