Just an FYI for anyone not following the P500 "Made the Cut" thread for The Hunted. Greg says that The Hunters P500 will not just be a straight-up third printing.
It will be a "Deluxe Edition" for all intents and purposes, although not described as such. It will have patrol maps, kommandant cards, integrated rules and also new U-boat types, such as the Type I, X, XIV and a what-if type.
So anyone who does not own The Hunters would be well advised to go ahead and pre-order, and anyone who wasn't interested because they thought there was nothing new, should also pre-order their copy..

GMT ought to change the P500 name and description to reflect this change. Not every Hunters fan is on this site or Consimworld site.

But what I do have are a very particular set of skills, skills I have acquired over a very long career. Skills that make me a nightmare for people like you… And I will beat you.

According to the other thread that appears to be the case.

Agreed, not all fans of the game know to come here. Which is why I brought up the suggestion in The Hunted P500 "Made the Cut" thread. Unfortunately though, Greg says GMT does not want to change the description.
This is to at least let folks who might happen upon this forum know that the P500 is the equivalent of a deluxe edition, even though it doesn't say so..

Well, if GMT won't change the description on their siteyuk, perhaps Consimpress should at least change it on the Consimpress website.

Hey Dennis,

All true, but John's a little more focused on Hunted right now, and Hunters 3rd printing is a little further down the pipeline, which is why I think he's not worried about doing all that yet.

Hopefully nobody will complain about getting -more- (Boats, maps, etc etc) LOL. But I'm sure now that he's decided to make Hunters 3rd Printing include extra materials, he'll get around to updating all that stuff and getting the word out.

Greg

We will get the change made on the GMT site in September. Sorry for the confusion, but we will get it straightened out next month. We are going to call it "The Hunters with Expansion" since we will also sell the Expansion separately for those who already own the game.

This sounds nice! Glad to hear that i can get the expansion for my 2nd print version and don't get shafted. , but please produce so many that we wont run out of them so everyone can have one if the want it (or take orders and print )...

Oh, and the game is brilliant, thanks for the makers and publisher.

Hi Jari,
Thanks for the kind words! Glad to hear you like it.

I'm pretty sure John will take the hint from the fact the first two printings sold out pretty quickly, and will make enough of the expansion kits to sell. I would imagine he has some sort of arcane mathematical formula to determine this number X number of 2nd printing owners will probably just get a 3rd printing, and Y number of them will want a kit, and Z number of them will be unsure and complain later, then you add all those up and divide by the number of full moons in a decade then add 6. Or something like that

All joking aside, I'm sure John will print enough to go around. So keep the faith!

Take care,
Greg
