    Soo tempting, Ive been waiting for this for ages. I may have to order the boxed one though.
    DAMN, their purchasing store is down due to being overloaded :p

    I wish I could but the Introversion store is down and my credit card is in a box somewhere as im in the middle of moving rooms around :(
    Such a shame as I really wanted to play this but the boxed version isnt (to me) worth 15 quid and a tenner is a little much for a steam download when it comes off pre-order price. Unless steam now allows switch cards.

    Tried to buy it from their site but just got "Our store is oveloaded" With no timeframe as to when it's gonna be back. Hope they take either PayPal or Solo otherwise I'm ****ed :sigh:

    Regarding the scrolling issues:

    From what I've heard, the UI is customizable, so you can drag-move any of the "control strips" (eg. the time strip off the top), and put it where-ever you like.

    Moving it down a cm or two should do the trick.

    Anyone else unable to authenticate their copy via steam? Im guessing the server is really over loaded or something.
    Atleast it gives me time to cook

    You read correctly - you can move around all the various panels. Quite why we didn't figure out you could move *this* one I don't know. In any case, an update has been written into the review. Many thanks for the pointer

    Hi, my name is Tyinsar and I like the first few turns of Risk but after that I think it Sucks (I especially Hate the "I've been almost eliminated but I'll trade in my cards, get a 'bazillion' armies - I win!") - I do, however, like Risk 2210 (link)

    Honestly... this game reminds me so much of WarGames.
    "I want to play Global Thermonuclear War."
    "Wouldn't you like to play a nice game of Chess?"
    "No. Global Thermonuclear War."

    Honestly though. Do you get bonus points for targeting Seattle and Las Vegas?
