This appears to be sold out at GMT. Does anyone familiar with their reprint tendencies know what the approximate chance it will be added to the P500 list for a reprint is?

I'm not hopeful it will be reprinted any time soon, if at all. Best to look for a copy on the secondary market.

Concur. Too heavy for the average CDG gaming bear, too long, too realistic, too fiddly, too subtle, and we all know the map sucks. Other than that, a strong candidate! kiss

I wish all my CDGs had those problems! (Except for the map.)

I wouldn't worry about it too much, Bob. This is the first game that I've known of where the supply system was really in your face. Being a person who's studied logistics all his life (one reason I love 18th Century warfare, where it WAS the primary consideration of generals, even more than manpower), that kind of appealed to me.

That being said, I'd agree that a more schematic map would've made things easier to teach others.

Having complained about the map, I'd argue that's really the only thing to quibble with in what is a definite keeper for me. I really don't know if another game would ever come close to capturing the layers of difficulty confronted by commanders in this era that this game does. It remains a superb game, and will forever remain so.

Last look at GMT's P500 list there was another 7 years war strategic game being worked on that is based off of Napoleonic Wars, so I'd say that CoM is definitely not getting a reprint. Loved CoM, even all the fiddly aspects of it...it really seemed to portray the conflict well.

If the OP is still looking, the game is relatively easy to find copies of on eBay at decent prices.
