Ordered mine too. AND I still don't have the base game.. I wised out this time. =) My prediction is that the base game will also go to P500 reprint pretty soon..

Well, sounds good and I suspect they're cashing in on the success of the base game. Why not?

Some things I would love to see:

1) Thicker mapboard/s
2) BETTER dice!

P500'd this morning! When I first saw the price, I was a bit put off. But once I read the description with 300 new blocks and 20 new scenarios -- no problem!

Does every thread about this game have to have a comment on dice? The expansion sounds as it will be just that. No board, no dice. Will have new, larger reference cards. Scenario book will be the size of current rulebook.

Well, the dice did suck. There, I commented on it again.

I think this will reach the p500 requirement pretty quickly compared to the main game.

One question: how often does GMT update their P500 counters? I see many of you pre-ordered already, but at their site the counter is still at 0.

I tried to resist this game, but once I read that the first expansion would be Greeks vs Persians I bought mine! A pity, it's still on its way home, and I guess it would be reasonable to wait to "touch" the game before preordering the expansion...

Checked my mail. Nothing. Neurotically checked it 5 seconds later. GMT Email. Sent the preorder out within the next minute

My prediction is this will make it in... oh... beginning of July!

About once a week. It's a manual thing.

Yes, I read somewhere on their site that it's updated once a week.

It will be interesting to see how many preorders this gets in it's first week.

Well, a reply to myself, I'm one of the 359! In the end I was not reasonable and I preordered mine before touching the base game...

I'm embarrassed to say that I also preordered the expansion before the first game has even reached me. But I did play a friend's copy so I could see that it is exactly the kind of game I like.

Usually I would need to play test a game much more before deciding to make such a quick decision but you how it goes sometimes...

By the way, I am in Canada and have been waiting about 33 days for the game to arrive. I figure it is stuck in customs. Does anyone know if this is normal or should I start to be concerned.

It's made it to 477! Come on, you twenty-three slackers, get with the program!
(Is this the fastest anything's ever risen up the GMT P500 chart?)
