I P500ded the new printing, and I am trying to figure out my budget. I know my card hasn't billed yet -- and in fact I have no idea when it will be. It would help to know that so I can set aside the money for when it is (I have a checking account with a debit VISA).

Does anyone know who I can ask at GMT, or whether anyone at GMT is even likely to have an idea?

Their January 9 news letter say it's being reprinted Jan 15, so I'd expect it 1st quarter.

Here's a link to the January 9 update:

It says GMT expects to ship Paths of Glory in late January.

I just got a note from GMT saying 1/13, which is extremely awkward for me as I don't get paid until the 16th. Unless I can get them to change my billing method I'll be stuck with an overdraft (and my bank is not the most forgiving on those).

Michael, if you call the GMT people and let them know about your dilemma, I think they'll accommodate your request. They're a pretty small operation and can usually do this sort of thing.

Thanks. I answered the e-mail when they gave me the date, so they already know about the situation. And I have their number in Google Contacts, so it's easy for me to contact them. The thing is they are sending out several different games Tuesday with hundreds of orders for each. They'll be busy.

But I see no reason now that they couldn't make the change if I take the initiative and make sure to keep it up on my end.

I'm reaslly looking forward to getting this again and only wish I could have afforded to get their WWII Pacific game as well.

I have been waiting for this reprint for a long time - just recently put in my P500 order for it. I have been holding off on playing because I like to own a copy - and I don't want to overpay for an older edition (even if the last edition is practically the same as this one).

GMT's newsletter says that cards will be charged on 1/13. I have two questions:

1) If I just put in my P500 order this past weekend, does that still count for the discounted price and early shipment? I had an order in, but it got messed up and I had to delete and re-order.

2) How long after the charging of the card, does GMT ship a pre-order?

This is one of 3 total P500s I have ever committed to, to date. The other two (Empire of the Sun and the new US Civil War) won't be out until later this year.

Thanks in advance!

GMT provides details on how the P500 program works. Charging typically occurs on the order of a few weeks before shipping, but be advised that there is an ongoing work slowdown occurring at the major West Coast ports due to a labor dispute--this could affect timelines.

My order has been successfully switched. As it turned out, I had a second order I had completely forgotten about! So they trimmed my record down so I would only get (and pay for) one copy.

Looks like I won't get my game all that much later than everyone else.
