When we are ready to reprint any of the WiF CE SuperDeluxe games we will post it up on our site and send you an email asking if you want to claim your immortality now, or wait until the next game is reprinted (we will say then how much we have left in stock and the likely time when the next game will be printed).
Note: The World in Flames Collector’s Edition Deluxe game is being printed now. Unfortunately our printers are not quite as nimble as planned and they have just informed me that with their Christmas break (2 weeks off) it is unlikely to be finished before mid-January. They are now working flat out and there is a still a chance of release before Christmas. I will post further updates as I receive them.
I'm very sorry for the delay. I'm still working very hard to get the game to you as soon as possible and having proofed the components I firmly believe the game will be worth the wait.
Please note too though that all the other games, kits, maps, and magazines in the World in Flames Collector's edition Super Deluxe package are the latest available editions and they are available for shipment to you now.
We have now agents in Europe, the USA and Australia and all games will be sent from your local agent.************************

************************World in Flames Game system synopsis
It is the dawn of September 1939, and the dark clouds of war hover over the globe. China and Japan have already been at war for more than 2 years and now a Continental war is about to become a worldwide war, a World in Flames.
You, as leader of your country, must guide your nation in the darkest period of our history. You are not defenceless but the lingering wisps of the great depression have hollowed out your forces and discouraged your people. You must lift them to their greatest heights and achieve the impossible, victory against an implacable foe.
In 1985 Australian Design Group launched what would become the definitive international award winning game of World War II, World in Flames. Now after 34 years we are giving you the definitive version.
From the snowy wastes of the arctic to the deserts of Africa and the Jungles of the Pacific, armies, navies and air flotillas contest the air sea and sky to liberate subject peoples from their wicked rulers.
On any one day you might be fighting on the shores of Normandy defending your capital struggling amongst the snows of Russia <pan to Russian front with footage of Russian front battles> or launching carrier strikes in a life-or-death struggle for control of your sea lanes.
Most battles suffer from the fog of war, particularly in the chancy naval battles. This is covered in World in Flames Task Force display where you can hide your forces and perplex your enemies.
But battle is just one demand on your skills. You must also plan for your future. World in Flames allows you to produce everything you did historically or to change your mix depending on your cunning long-term plans to defeat your foes. Do you have the right mix of aircraft? How many aircraft carriers do you need? Do you want a small elite all mechanised force or a large army of militia and garrisons to hold what you can until your allies intervene and the fortunes of war swing inexorably in your favour.
Speaking of allies, you need to flatter your potential partners, plan with your allies and negotiate with your potential enemies to ensure that when the blow comes it will be you dictating the terms and not your foes.
But Allies is a purely relative term, and only one country can emerge from this epic struggle truly strong and free. Is this to be your century?
Based on thousands of hours of research, plans and top secret technical data and input from over 10 million hours of playtest data World in Flames is the strategic game of World War II.
World in Flames can be played from 2 to 6 players (and can even be played solitaire). There are 20 campaigns you can play, from the hour long Victory in The West campaign to the 150 hour Global War mega campaign.
World in Flames is the ultimate gaming challenge. Are you game to play?
