GMT is considering publishing a deluxe edition of Circus Train (with the expansion). The product page is here:

http://www.gmtgames.com/p-355-circus-train-deluxe-edition.as...

How Does the GMT Deluxe Version of Circus Train Differ from the Original VPG Version?

Circus Train, Deluxe Edition includes all of the materials from the original VPG game and expansion kit. It will also feature:

* New art throughout.
* A double-sized, mounted map board.
* A scoring track around the outside of the map board keeps track of both Victory Points and Best Performance Scores.
* Improved card stock improves shuffling and card-handling.
* Cardboard coin pieces make keeping track of money easier and eliminate the need for the player tracking boards.
* Wooden pieces are included for train markers, scoring markers, and the first player marker.
* A cloth bag is included for drawing out Event Tokens.

If you've been holding back because of the components, now is your chance to see a deluxe edition published. Thanks!

My pre order made it 110. At this rate, it should be shipping in about 3 weeks.

Depends on its weight and if you choose UPS or USPS.

USPS shipping averages about $10 for me. Maybe a few bucks more.

Excellent news. I can't wait to upgrade.

So how long before Final Frontier and No Retreat 2 end up on the P500?

VPG's gameplay + GMT's production values = Pre-order no-brainer (#156)

instant order for me (#161). loved the sound of Circus Train when I first read about it but couldn't see it surviving the kids I game with and I've been hoping for a better-produced version ever since :D

Awesome news! I'm in for this one. The game has hit the BGG Hotness panel too, so a lot of people are checking it out now.

I put my name down.

What's the normal turnaround on P500s? I know that some games are in process for months. I would think this one would have a shorter turnaround, but would it be done by the end of the year?

Wow - I'd never heard of this game until this thread showed up on the main page of BGG last night .. I followed it to learn more, read the ratings, watched the video review, and just now listened to the podcast all linked ..

Solo-playability + great theme + great reviews all make the P500 version Extremely Tempting!

*edited to add*
I went for it .. #206 now

Ummmm...no. Because this is a reprint of an established game, it might have a quicker turnaround time, but I'd be surprised if it isn't at least six months away and not shocked it it took a year.

Got it. No hurry, just excited about it.

As I understand it will have totally new art and new components so I expect that will take awhile to finalize. And it's not even half way to its target pre-orders so nothing might start until it makes at least the 500 mark.

So that means, come on everyone, more preorders please!

Absolutely. Just not this year.
