As the title suggests, any news?

All I knew is it was going to be done. I don't know if the plans included something in the near future or just "the future."

From august 15 newsletter

Quote:
As I noted last month, we now have the replacements for the misprinted cards in house. Now that we've shipped all of the "Golan '73 P500 orders, we're ready to sent out the updated cards.

We're shipping the reprinted cards (only) to those of you who have the Collector's Edition of Twilight Struggle. We'll also be shipping full decks -which include the reprinted cards - to those of you who ordered a 2nd deck with your Kickstarter order. If we have any left over, we'll let you guys know once all of our Kickstarter customers have theirs.

In the recent Collector's Edition which was available as a reward for the digital edition of Twilight Struggle, there were 5 cards with misprints. Those 5 cards have been fixed and will be sent to folks who received the CE from the Kickstarter campaign. Those same 5 cards will be fixed in the few units that GMT has not put up for sale yet directly from them. That's it.

Someone on the KS comments said they contacted GMT and they are still in the process of sending them out. I know I have not received mine yet.

So it's an alternative deck? Are all cards different or just some?

The card backs and the card art is different, but the text is the same. For some reason when they made these changes they introduced some mistakes.

received mine monday 9/12.

i've had only excellent interactions with GMT and playdek throughout. and
now that C&C Napoleonics is off the P500, that was a great target for the GMT coupon.

honestly, i find the sturm und drang over the CE to be wildly overdone on the forums.

love the double sided board, the new card art, the resin pieces. intrigued by the promo cards. excited to get more plays in with Turn Zero. when these are all coded in the digital version, we should really be able to get a high number of reps in a short period of time.

i enjoy it and play it preferentially over my other version (not a popular opinion here, i understand).

I received my cards on Saturday. If I waited a few days they would have just magically showed up unexpectedly.

Regarding the edition as whole, I'm not sure it was anywhere near as unanimously maligned as you might think. Sure, there are complaints there, but it seemed predictable. I would have liked Metal tanks instead of resin, but not enough to flip out over it.

Compared to a few other deluxe editions of games I have, even Small World, this set is easily on par. Overproduced and beautifully boxed. The new card art is amazing and I like the cards much, much better than the original. The new board design is improved too IMO. The custom dice are cool. I even love the sleeves (and wish I could find more).

In short, if the game was truly that poorly received by the general public then the aftermarket prices sure don't seem to reflect it.

I think they hit it out of the park with this edition. Fixing the cards seemed like a no-brainer, yet it feels "complete" now that they're fixed.

+++ on this. I finally got around to putting my replacement cards in the box. My copy is perfect and you'd have to pry it out of my cold, dead hands to get it.

Maybe one issue is that I'm a longtime P500 customer, so I knew what to expect from a solid, small publisher for the money? I still feel like some of the complaints are pretty overblown---I think the space race and defcon plastics actually look great. The only clunky looking thing is the tanks, to me, but even that is trivial.

That said, if I received a totally busted up version with more than a break on a tank barrel or something and they didn't make it right, maybe my attitude would be different.

I still haven't received the replacement cards. Has anyone else also not received them as of today?

Is anyone who *has* received them willing to unload their set of misprints for a small fee? I'm looking for a spare set (of misprints) for a project. PM me if interested, thank you.

I also haven't received my replacements. I emailed the office and they said that there was a delay for some packages, so I guess it'll be this week sometime?
