Wasn't the Sequence of Play supposed to be changed? With the now obligatory Reveal of the Held Card before the Check of the Military Status?

I don't really understand the reason the tracks were rearranged like that. Was there an issue with the way it was before?

That's not relevant in the least. I'm talking about DEFCON, mil ops, AR, and Space

GMT has been kind of "off" lately with components and quality - I am sure they will get it together quickly, but see the thread for the latest "Gathering Storm" game for evidence.

Are we sure the link to the map isn't for the Collector's edition? I brought it up somewhere that the Living Rules feature different card art as well, that we assume is fore the CE. The fact that their site still links to a very outdated Vassal module has me thinking someone isn't keeping things up to date over there...

Very interesting, but I won't be pre-ordering the reprint.

I recently bought Churchill and No Retreat 4 and the components and quality are fine for both.

Glad to hear it - especially as I am heavily anticipating their "US Civil War," which should be in my hands (hopefully) next month!

Definitely eastern Europe. I wonder if that could be intentional. Would make Warsaw Pact a bit more ugly.

I usually run with the house rule of "if USSR controls Canada, instant win." when I'm playing as the US. It's really just a joke so no one takes it seriously.


With this new map, I'm imagining people will take my offer really seriously.

If the pre-order does not get to 500 by November will it be delayed then? Right now it is at 346.

The reprint P500 doesn't quite work like the original P500. If they believe demand is high enough (which they always believe it is high enough for TS) they will go through the printing anyway. In fact they have already finished the TS reprint and it is almost ready to be shipped (it is in a dock from what i think they last said).

So this is shipping anyway. The only bonus of the preorder is that you can get the game at a discount directly from the manufacturer that will probably get it to you before it is available again in stores (but not always) and it should be for close to the same price as online stores.
