This is likely to be reprinted later this year even if it doesn't reach 500 pre-orders. GMT is committed to getting their main CDG titles that are out of print reprinted as soon as possible. Raising funds for this is one of the main reasons they had their 50% off spring sale.

MUST HAVE
This is a unique game with a dedicated fan base. I'm confident GMT will print this with a few other "bread and butter" card enhanced games. This is the only PTO grand strategy game I need in my collection--it's that good.

For anyone who was wondering what how the reprint will be different, Mark Herman posted this over on CSW:


A friend suggested that it would be good to see what the reprint will look like. Here is an official blessed list from GMT.

1. Rules

A. I intend to integrate the FAQ, but this is not a rewrite, that said it will need to be re-laid out by Mark Simonitch due to the extra content.

B. Color Rules

C. Inclusion of some variants in a new optional rule section.

2. Map

A. Mounted, no changes

3. Cards

A. Same number of cards, but editing on the current set to integrate FAQ and some changes to pump up a few events.

4. Counters

A. Same number of counters, but the same quality/ composition as the second edition of Ardennes 44.

B. Integration of some c3i counters in lieu of some flag counters.

C. New color scheme (Army/Navy distinction both sides) similar to the new cyberboard done by a fan.

5. Playaids

A. Same number and size, but they need editing and need to be recast based on a decade of input.

6. Box Cover

A. I love the current box cover, but I want to give the reprint a distinct identity. The art will be a variant of some Rodger has used in c3i.

7. Player’s Guide

The idea would be to take the c3i articles on the game and include them as a new four-color booklet. Not sure how long it would be and I would have to edit some of the earlier articles to bring them in line with the v2.0+ set of the rules.

All the best,

Mark

I have the original, but just preordered the reprint. ($52 is a good deal) I even have the mounted board. (which is fantastic, btw....most beautiful board ever, and GMT uses magic for their mounted boards -- they lie amazingly flat) I P500d it because I knew I'd eventually kick myself if I didn't.

(Up to 436, or 437 counting mine)

Edit: Up to 438. If people are interested in this one, the $52 sale price is a bargain, I can promise.

I'm quite glad the cover will likely change. I stayed away from considering EotS for quite a while due to the classic error of judging a book by its cover. I didn't realize the comic book-style drawing was based on an actual Japanese propaganda poster, and from the initial position of ignorance the cover struck me as being slightly racist.

Even now, when I carry it around Japanese folks I'm still slightly concerned they may have the same thought, but not say anything.

But back on topic, even though I have a first printing I've signed up for the second printing.
