You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means.

It has been awhile since we have posted, so I thought I would just let you know that there is still a lot of work going on behind the scenes. There are two expansions in the works - one of which is almost done.

We are not ready to announce yet, but look for something in the next GMT P500 update. I think you will be pleased!

Once I was quietly looking at Space Empires: 4X as a way to get a game about space combat, but didn't buy it at the time.
Those were the old days.
Then I secured it in a trade, and I realised what a bad idea it was to get a game by a new designer.


Enjoying the game, Space Empires: Close Encounters was a natural progression and the name Jim Krohn became a designer with designideas I liked.

Space Empires: Replicators was naturally put on P500, since it was more SPace Empires.

Then Jim designed Talon and while it looked cool, I managed to resist. Space Empires was enough for me. Untill those blasted "Talon Tuesday" posts on the GMTblog appeared. P500 was the next step and then wait for it to arrive.

And wait I did, because it took GMT a long time and 2 mails to get it out to me. But in the end it arrived and Jim Krohn cemented himself as a good designer in my eyes.

As I was looking at Conflict of Heroes: Awakening the Bear! (second edition) as a tactical WWII game at the time, naturally Band of Brothers: Screaming Eagles entered my field of interest.

But as the first kickstarter had passed, it wasn't available.

But then Worthington went and offered a 2nd chance kickstarter and since I wanted a WWII tactical game and Jim Krohn was the designer, my card was charged and now I am eagerly awaiting the goodies.

Jim Krohn is costing me alot of money by designing good games.

And now Talon is getting expansions, Space Empires: Replicators is coming next year and Band of Brothers: Old Breed will have mini-campaigns.

And Jim is talking about solo options for all 3 systems.

I knew it was an bad expensive idea to buy a game from a new designer.cry

    I'm hoping it's Cthulhu themed. With zombies.
