Does anyone have any additional details around the recent discovery (at least for me) of a reprint being done on this game? I.e. what is included, release timing, what is being updated/changed, etc. the usual suspects when it comes to a reprint and questions to be asked. New pictures of the components, map, counters, etc. would be great. Is it merely a boxed upgrade to the fan/John created 4th edition? That is nice too, just checking.

ONE SMALL STEP is doing the reprint for those wanting in on it. Here is the link:

No details on the site yet and this same question was asked in the CSW.

W&P was one of my earliest wargame purchases and I still love the game despite its imperfections.

I pre-ordered the OSS reprint last year. So, as of today BGG stats page show there are 2090 'owners' and 905 'raters' of W&P. Surely we can get 95 more pre-orders to get this reprinted!

Well, I did my part -- ordered two copies of the game. Only 73 more to go before it goes to print. Anybody want to pile on and get this thing out of "pre-production" status?

Hmmm...would love to pre-order but it looks like no multi player/campaign options?
Looking for something simpler than Empires in Arms.

The multiplayer Grand Campaign Game is expected to be part of the final package.

Any chance we could see some counter art samples? Also, 1/2" or 5/8" counters? I own and enjoy the original, but I'm intrigued by this update. The original game's graphic presentation was rather bland, and if this one is properly upgraded it might push me over the top to buy it.

Well that makes it way more appealing...might have to get on board for this one. Yes, some images of components would be fantastic!
Thanks!

Good to see interest in this product. However it is still very early stages.

Sorry.

Haven't finalized my role in this yet beyond a tentative agreement.

I have no news on this beyond the tentative release date of "next year". Just be sure to follow One Small Step Games and you'll see news as it is released.

Shout out to ainataqe Rich Levinski for the gg. Very kind of you.

Patience is the operative word folks.

A proper upgrade and update?

Wouldn't be worth the effort not to properly upgrade much more than just the artistic presentation.

Well, my assumption was that of course the rules would be addressed in any update. Call me shallow but I place nearly as much importance on graphic presentation as rules content in any game. This is especially so for a game on the Napoleonic era, which we all associate with pomp and grandeur on the battlefield!

I hear ya.

Aesthetic value is important. I place a premium on it as well.

Expectation is this will be a huge but not a revolutionary update covering all aspects of the package. Still TBD though.
