This game seems to be pretty much unavailable at this point.

If anyone knows where you can get a reasonably priced copy of this game please geekmail me, thanks.

Update

It turns out that I was wrong. Despite the fact that the site shows none in stock, they still have some of the found cache left. I contacted GMT directly, and now have one beautiful copy on the way (they're asking $69).

I have no idea how many they still have left, but it can't hurt to try!

You might give this idea a shot:

Otherwise, I have been told by both GMT games and the designer Matt Calkins that it will get reprinted this year.

The site has no copies - that was the second place I looked. Good to hear it's going to be reprinted.

Go to the P500 page of the GMT website and get your order in if you like. You can also check the status of the game there and how many standing orders there are. Seeing as there are only 116 orders as of this post, it might be a while. soblue

Would like to get my P500 in but I'm not in possession of a credit card, so I'm stuck not being able to order, which frankly sucks. Sekigahara seems like a great game, but getting a copy is not an option right now (unless you'd consider buying from overpriced sellers out there)

If you contact the office, I'll bet they let you order and pay by check when it's ready.

THIS!!

I emailed GMT support initially to see if they had any Paths of Glory mounted maps available and they emailed me back the next day saying that, in fact, they did! So I figured, "what the hell, can't hurt" and emailed support again asking if they had any available copies of Sekigahara. I was again promptly emailed back saying that they, in fact, DID have a few copies left and, like The Hound stated, charged me the $69 retail price (which I of course paid without hesitation).

So if you're still looking and don't mind paying the retail price I STRONGLY suggest emailing GMT support!!

They don't always wait for pre-orders to reach 500. Games which are in high demand from stores etc. may be reprinted anyway. I'm guessing this game and Here I Stand are two of the games which will be reprinted even if they don't reach 500 pre-orders. After all, they are respectively #8 and #5 wargames on BGG. It's all up to GMT, of course, but they have recently reprinted Twilight Struggle, Paths of Glory, lots of Combat Commander and Command & Colors Ancients stuff... I think Sekigahara and Here I Stand, together with COIN reprints, will have high priority at the moment.

Edit: For the People and Washington's War were also recently reprinted. Washington's War never reached more than 245 pre-orders. Normandy 44 is just around the corner, at 450 pre-orders. Wilderness War is planned for May, at only 26 pre-orders! Surely, Sekigahara's time will come too, sooner or later.

Mine arrived too! I've already gotten in a few games, and I'm just blown away by how good it is. As in, top 3 games I've ever played, good.


Get it while you still can!

Are they currently available? Or are the rest of us still waiting on the P500 reprint?

my advice: email gmt customer support and ask if they have any remaining copies. i got both sekigahara and the paths of glory mounted board - both are marked as "out of stock" on the website - by asking!
