About how long does an average P500 take to fill up in order to start production and shipping?

I just discovered this Hunters game and signed up to have it sent when it reaches 500...it's currently at 43 or something like that. This game looks really fun, exactly what I have been looking for to play at home and can't wait to try it!

Not sure when the third printing of The Hunters is going to print, but if you are interested in the game, the follow up game Silent Victory: U.S. Submarines in the Pacific, 1941-45 is on p500 and is going to print as we speak. Will hopefully be deliverd before christmas. It is about American subs in the Pacific.

Okay thanks. I did order the Silent Victory as well. I think it will be very good as well.

Hey Leroy,
FWIW I think some others have posted recently about copies of Hunters for sale, here on BGG. To be honest I'm not sure of the procedure, but they're listed somewhere (in case you don't want to wait for the P500).

Go to the HUNTERS main BGG page and scroll down to "Marketplace" to see the copies available where they are and the prices.

My question is related to this topic so I haven't created a new one:

Where can I check the status of the P500 for this game?
I went to the consimpress website and had a look in here on BGG and I just can't find how many preorders are recorded so far.

Than you.

The numbers for all P500 games can be found on GMT's website on the P500 page.

Thank you very much!

If I'm not mistaken, the number of orders to date is only 18 so far (and not 43 as stated here above).
That's a real bummer...

Remember that GMT only handles distribution of the Consimpress games, so it is John Kranz(head of Consimpress) that decides when this reprint goes to print, as he is the one that takes the financial risk. That might be before it has garnerned 500 orders.

Thank you for the clarification.
But still, 18 pre-orders so far probably means we are not there yet before a long time.
I'd better try to find a second edition on the 2nd hand market.

Yep, that one is still a long way off. If you want to play right now, the trade section is your best bet..
