I think I read somewhere that there would be a P500 bonus scenario included (Pydna 168 BC IIRC) but I didn't get any. Was this skipped or should I have gotten it?

Edit: Did I really write 168 AD there? blush

I thought that GMT was going to put the P500 bonus scenarios (I thought there was more than one) up as PDFs on their website. I see a PDF for The Truceless War scenarios:

http://www.gmtgames.com/living_rules/CC%20Truceless%20War-2....

Were the P500 scenarios something else?

There was a CSW note that it looks like the P500 scenarios were left out by mistake but will be mailed out later.

Yep, there are three of them. Pretty interesting battles too.

You can find what they are by checking the thread that describes the battles-- the three 'bonus' are marked as such.

I just frantically opened my expansion (like a kid on Christmas but about 4 weeks too early) and alas, no P500 scenarios for me either.

The bonus scenarios were missed/forgotten and left out. They will be mailed to all pre-order buyers soon. (When the next GMT product ships in December probably)

Your copy of the expansion didn't come with dice? The expansion includes new dice that are "better" than the dice shipped with the original version. The new dice are still plastic but are made of one piece and are a little bit larger. The dice face labels now fit with room to spare.

Wooden dice are available from Valley Games but these wooden dice are a third party item and are not sold by GMT or included with the game.

And the dice were definitely supposed to be in the box and it appears that most people did get them.

So if you didn't, give them a holler and I'm sure they will make it right.

If you followed what was going on, they were assembling and shipping about 5 different games in the same two weeks, every one of which involves humans putting X different components into each box.

They have always been prompt to correct those kinds of mistakes.

Definetely no dice although I did get the stickers for the dice.

Email to GMT is very hit or miss. For whatever reason, GMT seems to have trouble keeping up with emailed questions and concerns. The forums over at ConsimWorld are filled with requests to check for emails sent to GMT but not replied to.

Much better to give GMT a call if you have a problem, question or concern. GMT's reputation for responding to customer phone calls is excellent while GMT's reputation for responding to email leaves something to be desired.

Just a note that I have sent emails twice in the last week. I forgot about the P500 bonus scenarios, so other than that I received everything. My problem though, is that I received the Expansion Pack plus Twilight Struggle, when I should have received the Expansion Pack plus Europe Engulfed. My box was lablled correctly, but the contents were not right. So they must really have been having a grand time with their assembly and shipping. Thanks for the advice on putting in a phone call. They have always responded promptly to my emails before, but perhaps they are still going nuts with the assembly/shipping.

Yes,

Email to GMT really is a complete waste of time and a source of frustration. Best to save yourself the hassle and give them a call as they usually sort things out quickly.

Perhaps if they had their business operations sorted out, didn't need to fix up so many mistakes, and could handle a lot more customer issues via email, they could afford to splash out and give us real dice in C&C:A. (oh, and a mounted board) kiss

GMT does much btter with phone calls. After nearly a week with no response to either of my e-mails I called them on Friday, Dec 8.

Dice were received Monday Dec 11th.

So, although they don't respond to e-mails the service received after my phone call was exemplary

So has anyone gotten their P500 bonus scenario(s) yet?

Not sure if there is more than one scenario in the bonus pack?

It's a 2 panel folder, like the p500 bonus from the original game, with a cover, 2 scenarios on the "inside" and a 3rd scenario on the back.

They promised to start shipping them this week, so it shouldn't be too much longer.

Well, after 3 weeks without answer to my 2 e-mails, I've just called GMT and it's true, very good service on the phone: she told me that my dice will be sent today! And that I'll get the scenarios at the same time than all others. I had just asked to get the dice sent with the scenarios...


If they were as good by e-mail they would be the perfect company!

Do we have to tell GMT that we're missing the scenarios or did they forget everybody and will send the scenarios to all P500'd customers?

I didn't ask her explicitely, but it seems they said on CSW that they forgot to put the scenarios in all the boxes... So I assume that they are sending the scenarios to everyone, even if you don't ask for them.
