Drat. I was under the mistaken impression that Pericles would be ready to ship this fall. The GMT Update for July 21 states it won't ship until the 2nd Quarter of 2017. Why the delay?

Well, since playtesting is still going on, I'd think that Mark isn't done with it yet.

Game is finished and the map is now in art, but its a long process to produce a game. I am using the time to continue refining the rules and various items in the playbook, so the time will be used well. That said, China is very far away, stuff takes time.

Okay, thanks for the information, Mark! Well, I'm using this waiting time to re-read Thucydides, Xenophon, Kagen, and Hanson to get my head back into that terrible war.

And I hope you don't use that assembly language push-pop analogy somebody suggested on your diary page.


BTW, what's the comment about China? Were you referring to your "Warring States" project?

Thank you Mark for producing a game which focuses on the political dramas of the Peloponnesian War. Ever since getting VP's Pelop War all those years ago; playing Martin Wallace's Pericles and reading Donald Kagan's excellent four volume work, I have dreamed of such a game. Thanks for making the dream real. Can't wait for the release
