It is that time of year when GMT gives us a great deal on their games and I'm trying to figure out what to get. I was considering the Flying Colors series but it looks like they are all out of print except for their most recent game. I'm eligible for three games (or four since I'm not sure I remember how the sale worked last year). So what do you guys recommend? What are you planning to get for the sale?

Well, all the COIN are OOP, as is Churchill. Whoops, Fire in the Lake is still available.

I don't think my one P500 for LoD will count for a discount, but if I were buying, I'd get Wing Leader: Victories 1940-1942.

Not sure I need anything this year. I'm backed up with games I haven't played yet, and I just received Churchill and Wing Leader: Victories 1940-1942. My plan is to spend my time playing something rather than daydream about what else I might buy or (worse yet) reading the daydreams of others.

Hold on a minute, why am I here again?

Hi,
Can someone explain how this works, I only pre-ordered Empire of the Sun this year, will I still be given the chance to get a discount?

Thanks,

Someone please correct me if I am mistaken here since I am going on memory but I believe last year you were allowed to order the same number of games you preordered plus one at 50% off. For example, I preordered two games this year, so I qualify for up to three games at 50% off. That's how I remember it anyway.

Yes that is correct for last year's sale. It should be the same this year, but we will have to wait and see. It's only good for in stock GMT published games and C3i magazine.

Like they said. In the past everyone gets 1 game at 50% off, then add 1 more game for 50% off for every game that got shipped to you this year that you had p500.

I can't decide what to get since so many are sold out. I should be eligible for 3, but only Wilderness war is really the only that grabs me. But with exchange rate and shipping probably cheaper to get it locally.

No Retreat 4 is the only one that sticks out at me right now.

I didn't know the counter trays were included in the sale. I'll probably grab a pack of those.

In the past it's been possible to order a P500 title that will be shipped before the end of the year to count toward the number of 50% off titles you can get.

Here's hoping Conquest of Paradise comes out so I can buy it!

I now know what this P500 bug is. The wait, the anguish, the desire to play the game so you consider buying an earlier edition BUT the desire to have the game new in the newest bestest form so you hold off and don't buy it....


GMT, hear my cry! Release Conquest of Paradise!

It has to be Combat Commander: Mediterranean for me. I picked up CC:Europe for Christmas last year and I love it!

It's too bad Twilight Struggle is OOP right now. I'm curious as to what all of the fuss is about...

How does this work? Do GMT email you and let you know how many discounted games you qualify for?

When does this normally run from/to?

This year, it runs from October 20-31. I'm not aware of GMT telling you anywhere how many 50% games you're eligible for, AFAIK you need to figure that out yourself. Logging onto the GMT website and looking at 'My Account' is probably the best way to do that.

Count the number of p500 games you received since lady Oct, add one, you're eligible for that many in stock games at 50%off

I just looked up the fall sale announcements from the previous two years, and they did include specific lists of games that counted towards the 50% discount. So it should be pretty easy to figure out how many 50% items you're entitled to.

As for what I'll be ordering: I'm entitled to three games at 50%, and that's how many I'll order. No 20% items for me.

As of now, I'm locked into Germantown (not owning even one GBACW game just won't do) and Chandragupta (GBoH fanboy that I am). Not sure about the third one. Candidates are (among others):
Blood & Roses
Genesis: Empires and Kingdoms of the Ancient Middle East
For the People
Fading Glory
Thunder Alley
Mr. Madison's War: The Incredible War of 1812
Hellenes: Campaigns of the Peloponnesian War
Manoeuvre
Sun of York

Don't forget the game trays. You can get a pack of 10 at the discount as well (assuming this year works like last year).

Thank you. It is actually the frontrunner now. I don't own a stratgic ACW game yet, and I am a CDG fan, so I guess you cannot go wrong with buying it before it goes OOP again.

I think I also need to look more closely at T&T.

I might order Deluxe Alexander if it includes the corrected counters. Otherwise, I'll order something else.

It should do, we've all had our replacements by now.
