GMT Games has a pretty sensible business plan of printing or reprinting games only when there is sufficient demand to justify the print run. In theory, there needs to be at least 500 pre-orders, at which point the game "makes the cut." In practice, it might take more like 750-800 to get the game going.

TWILIGHT STRUGGLE (Deluxe Edition) is currently at 514 as of this post. (I was #503 last night.) The pre-order is a good deal - $42 instead of the list $60, and you don't get charged until/unless the game gets reprinted and shipped.

Here's the P500 list, where you can check on the current number of pre-orders.

Here's where to pre-order the game.

Given that the game is their best seller by a large margin, and that the keep running out of copies, they will probably re-print it anyway.

As I said in a previous thread, P500 numbers on this game are irrelevant. It's getting reprinted regardless. The only reason to place a P500 order for it is for the P500 discount.

I'm hoping that more pre-orders will get it reprinted sooner (although it's not like I don't have enough board games to fill the time as it is).

I don't expect it to take very long. The key to that, I think, is hoe much they change a game. TS is well established, and I don't think there needs to be much tinkering. I noticed today that it moved to the "made the cut" status so that should guarantee charging and shipping as soon as any thinkering is done.

You can always subscribe to their email updates, which is a good way to stay in the loop. For instance, the one that Gene sent out On October 7 (http://www.gmtgames.com/news.aspx?showarticle=328) indicated a late October/Early November estimate for charging and shipping. Of course, other factors can affect these estimates.

I've contacted the publisher, and in fact, they already did a print run and will be mailing out pre-orders later this month or early December.

It's been on their production schedule for late November/ early December. This is something that they line up months in advance.

Does anyone know if preorders are being shipped before the end of the year, or has this been delayed?

Check the "Charging and Shipping Schedule" about halfway down. This is their current estimate (note the word estimate).

Thanks for the information! I missed that section when I was reviewing the website and the discussion on the site about how busy they have been made me wonder if it would be delayed. Looks like I might have it before the holidays! (emphasis on "might)laugh

I wouldn't worry about what number you are. They probably don't ship by list order.

On a side note, Miniature Market got a bunch of copies in stock yesterday. They're already down to under 20 (from over 50 yesterday).

Edit: Oh my, now they're at 10!

I heard about this game about a year ago...didn't have much interest in buying the game for the price at the time. Randomly searched TS yesterday and I saw it on amazon for ~$45 and a bit of investigating led me here. The initial amazon link said it would be available on Dec 11th, but I checked a few hours later and it said it was in stock. I ordered it yesterday and it was picked up by UPS tonight. Everything appears legitimate and after catching up with the production updates on this forum and elsewhere it seems that the game is officially being shipped.
