    Edam-cheese (or Edammer in Dutch) does have holes as well. Altough, not as many as Emmentaler.

    Like Mosby states, Edam chees does have holes. As such, in the Dutch language we aren't using 'Swiss Cheese' in comparisons like these, but tend to refer to 'Edam Cheese' instead. So, although I already knew Mosby was a Dutchie this slip of the tongue pretty much confirmed it.

    Thanks for the great read Singleton. Much appreciated! Like it has been said before, it made the wait bearable!

    Although I'll download the demo I won't have time to actually play it much (if any at all), so if you feel the urge to write a little AAR for me and those like me I won't stop you, no sir, not at all

    Sorry, no urge to write about the demo.

    I sure hope the press-review-copy will become available tomorrow or I won't have enough time to write my review.

    Mosby, you've done enough.

    Take your rest. And enjoy the game.

    Cheers,
    Nick

    PS: This coming from a person without the demo. You lucky bastards.

    Gouda is even more known in certain countries I think. Be proud of your town!

    Great AARs Mosby! Thanks to your spamming in OT I found them and missing out would have been a travesty.
    Almost always right about the dutch national team!

    As it is very much related to my AARs a link to my HOI3 preview, in which I analyze the release version of HOI3 with the AARs in the back of my mind, is appropriate I presume .

    Just wanted to say thanks for keeping us entertained during the long wait. Will we see an AAR from you with the game eventually? Otherwise, just enjoy!

    Yep, somewher in September I guess, the AAR will be titled:

    "With SS-division 'Wiking' through Russia: a Dutch youth's crusade against Boshevism"

    Looking forward to the Wiking AAR!

    You're about to cross 500,000 views on this thing! That's remarkable, even for an AAR that's been around a couple of years! And this one... Only, what, 2-3 months? Nice!

    Congratulations!

    I am new to these forums so not sure what questions you were answering. I am however interested in your comment about playing Finland as I have found it almost impossible to do anything and very frustrating. How did you get on?
    ALso, what is DOW as in your comment "Barbarossa with the Finnish, DOW. . . . "
