Latest I've seen is in their news for 1st Nov

"U-Boat Leader 2nd edition and Gato Leader are nearing completion! We hope to send both to the printer by the end of the year. We will launch a Kickstarter for the games soon! "

I'm very anxious to see what changes will be made to the second edition. It'll help me decide if I want to stick with the first edition I have or upgrade to the newer version.

Wish I knew when the game (and Gato Leader) where coming out. Really interested in these two. The Hunters is my go-to sub game --- SO GOOD!

I will keep watching for an update. cry

In a reply to a comment on their Facebook page (check the Dec 15th comments to Phantom Leader annocement), they said that the Kickstarter for 2nd edition of U-Boat Leader & Gato Leader was due for January 2016.

Looking forward to it, but I am also curious about the changes from 1st to 2nd edition.

Wasn't the kickstarter supposed to be early/mid December?

Just like the game was going to be re-released in 2013...then 2014...then 2015...now 2016?

I'm sure the rerelease will include the changes in the errata and perhaps the optional rules (found on the DVG website). If that's all, I'll be content with my copy and the printouts. If any significant changes are made, I'd like to have a sneak peek of them before committing.

I thought there was some mention of a damage system being added.

I think they pushed it back a little (one month) because of the Phantom Leader Deluxe Kickstarter.

That would be great news!

I LOVE theme, and would like a game to complement the highly narrative gem that is The Hunters, which I deeply appreciate, with a more tactical approach. That being said, I am a bit concerned with the many reviews stating how easy the game is (sometimes even with the modified rules) and how the lone and "generic" stress counter for damage/fatigue/morale might hurt the immersion.

Don't get me wrong, I love my other other Leader series games like CAO & TAL, and I don't find Hornet's stress tokens to be anti-immersive, but I think it is mainly because the missions are quick and very different thematicaly than a 4 months submarine patrol...

Very curious about this one.

Hopefully the kickstarter will be more EU friendly, but I fear it won't be

Kickstarter should start next week.

It probably will be EU friendly as the Phantom Leader Deluxe was.

Seeing the new rulebook, it looks like they've added some different types of "Lasting Damage". Such as Electronics, Engine, Flooding (I like that one) Oil leak, Hull, Gun, Periscope, and Torpedo tubes.

I'd like to see an "UPDATE KIT" available for this.

Ooooh, an Update Kit would be nice! As is, I don't know if there's enough different to warrant me paying for the second edition (or if Gato Leader is different enough from U-boat Leader to get that too).

Looks like the only updates are the damage counters and the new rulebook. It should be pretty easy to create an upgrade kit.

I was thinking the same thing that it would be easy to make your own damage counters. I did not know if there are any card differences or additions. I have not read the whole new rulebook side by side with the 1.2 one to compare the differences.

That's a good idea too.
