    Anyone Heard from HOB Recently?

    I posted an order for The Long March back in early November 2010, but I've heard nothing since, despite emails et al to Steve.

    Anyone heard from them recently?

    There's still someone that think they're alive?

    Always order HOB product from a reseller like Noble Knight Games or The Gamers Armory. HOB makes products of exceptional quality & I am all for supporting small businesses but HOB has a track record for being poor at order fulfillment. Look through their thread over at Consim World and you'll see more posts like this one.

    I thought HOB went defunct and what was left rolled into BFP, no?

    No, BFP was doing development for HOB, but they parted ways and BFP is doing their own thing now. HOB still (ostensibly) exists. AFAIK, The Long March is the only thing they've put out since BFP split off.

    Oh, I thought some of HOB left and went to BFP or somehting like that. HOB has been so quiet in the last 2 years or so. In contrast BFP has been prolific.

    Hey Don,
    BFP bought the rights to a bunch of HOB stuff (OtO, RBF4, HG, BtB, etc) we have started to improve and re-relesase those we've acquired. That's how we are releasing OtO in our East Front pack coming up as well as releasing the rare vehicle stuff from RBF4.

    Rick,

    Thanks I knew there was some type of reason. The rare vehicle stuff sounds interesting. I did not get any of the RBF, so that would be cool to have released.

    Only RBF 4 has any counters.
    It is still possible to get the 4 issues.
