Only 28 more to go! I predicted this one would hit 500 by New Years and it didn't miss by much. This one is now the top game under 500. I'm really hoping to see this one get published in time for the later conventions this year like Gencon which I will be attending for the first time.

Looks like this has a better shot of making it in time for the summer conventions. The game is getting good word of mouth from those who have play-tested it.

Didn't take long for Ben Hull's latest to hit 500 and then 750. Looks like fans of the Musket and Pike series will have more scenarios to play with this spring sometime. Congrats Ben and I assume that we'll see a 5th game in this series as it's been so popular.

GMT American Revolution series looks to add a new game sometime soon. This one shot past 500 with ease and won't take long to hit 750 at this rate. I have Savannah from this series in my collection but haven't played it yet. I might pick this one up simply because last summer I got to visit the battlefield.

GMT if you notice has a lot of games sitting in that limbo area of 500-750 orders. Not quite enough to go into printing with them but far enough along that GMT is committed to doing so. This is of course one of them. Looks like a more simple version of For The People.

Won't be long now. I haven't ordered this one but I'm very tempted. Like the theme a great deal and I'm a sucker for Berg's games.

Not long noow for this one. This one seems to be generating a fair share of discussion with the WW II gaming crowd. I've heard it called ASL-lite but then again just about every game of this type and theme gets compared to ASL I think.

My #1 want on this list after Conquest of Paradise. Card based Medieval wargame. Sounds extremely cool imho.

I think the recent release of Naval Battles has hurt the pre-orders for this game a bit but it's still moving up the list at a steady pace. For those who aren't aware this game is a sequel to the very popular classic Avalon Hill game Atlantic Storm.

I expect this to cross 500 in the next P500 update. WW II block games are extremely popular at the moment and this series is really getting a lot of talk. This game is by Rick Young who made such a huge splash with Europe Engulfed and who soon will have the sequel Asia Engulfed hit the P500 list. I think we should take bets on Asia Engulfed hitting the 500 mark on the P500 list. Under or over would have to be around 10 days because it won't take long for that one.

Here's another fast mover. This game uses the same system as Wellington. It recreates Napoleon's invasion of Russia and like it's predecessor you have a team of 2 players facing off against each other. However there can only be 1 winner in the game so while you are teammates you don't want to help your teammate to much less he take all the glory. I really like that idea as it recreates the jealousies that often existed between generals.

14. Board Game: SPQR (Deluxe Edition) [Average Rating:7.92 Overall Rank:1364]

(If I may be so bold...)

I want to include this one here even though it has 301 preorders. My reasoning is twofold; first, I want this baby on my table, pronto, so I'll be shucking and jiving for this one until I gets what I want! Second, based on a series of posts in the SPQR folder over at ConSimWorld it appears that GMT may try to consolidate the preorders for this Deluxe edition and the straight reprint of SPQR that is also on the P500 list. As it is now, these two similar titles are "splitting the vote", as it were. Gene from GMT suggested that they may email all who preordered the reprint to see if they wouldn't rather jump on the Deluxe edition bandwagon. With any luck we could see the P# jump a hundred or more by next month.

And thank you, Brian, for compiling this info each month.
