Last night I asked Gene at GMT about the progress of shipping, he said:

Quote:
The first ones went out Tuesday, although I’m not sure exactly how many shipped then. When I was at the warehouse today, they had around 800 assembled since Monday (they’re doing Genesis concurrently, so it’s taking a while to build everything), though not all shipped yet. Hoping we’ll finish the P500 shipments by late Monday, but we’ll see.

It's that time when I wish I'd P500'd again.

Haven't received it yet, but did get a shipping notice on the 9th! So, now it depends on how long it takes to get to Dayton...

Well boys, mine arrived today (7/11) in Cincinnati. The game looks great(sorry, no photos.) The Aircraft Data Cards are as thick as the aircraft counters and they are the size of standard poker cards! My only "disappointment" is the glossy paper map. I was hoping for a little thicker card stock.

WE DEMAND PHOTOS!

Seriously, good to hear how it came out.

Regarding the map--in order to keep the cost down for an unproven game system GMT insisted on a paper map. However, with everyone's help I might be able to persuade the GMT boys to do us a mounted map for volume 2. Given that this will be almost exactly the same map as the first game (i.e. a big bit of sky), it would be a good replacement. Though it would make the volume 2 price a bit higher.

Mine arrived today (6/11) as well, in Dayton. So, apparently GMT loves Ohio (Or we bribe the USPS or something like that...lol) Spent all day at Hocking Hills State Park hiking around the sandstone and trees, and when I was back, it was there! Talk about an awesome day!

I grabbed this game rather late in the P500 process so I haven't yet gone through all the rules, but I am excited to do so once I get my energy back...tomorrow is going to be a great day!

PS: Since two of these games have arrived in Ohio and none in North Carolina, I think it's fair to say that Ohio is the state with the legitimate "FIRST IN FLIGHT" motto!

Not yet. According to my GMT account it hasn't shipped yet. I have emailed GMT asking when this is likely to occur, but no response as yet.

I don't believe the UPS standard service delivers on Saturday. I also find that at least for my area of Ohio, USPS is faster--GMT ships it Priority Mail, which tends to arrive here in 2 days. Ohio is also a convenient mail location...Columbus is within a 500-mile (1-day) drive of about half of the US population, a consideration that may be great for getting mail distributed.

Which one is fastest probably is highly dependent on your location, though!

Minneapolis checking in . . .

Holy shit, gorgeous package. I didn't realize the Data Cards were cardstock, figured they'd be card-cards. And I love the two-column rulebook layout with examples and historical info in the margins.

If it plays half as good as it looks, it's gonna be awesome.
