It's an Avalon Hill Calssic and deserves this treatment. I owned the original, but missed out on the L2 edition. One of the most played wargames of all time--whose cataclysmic subject matter is even more compelling today than ever. New research has been unearthed that will increase order of battle and overall hitorical accuracy.This will be an elegant design and will benefit from the care and attention only Consim Press/GMT can porvide. This is a very exciting offering from the guys who brought us THE HUNTERS--enough said.

I'm in--spread the word.

Because I don't have a copy of the original. As the price for the GMT re-pop is reasonable, might as well get a copy that looks sharp (though, unlike many, I am not averse to old games).

Because this game helped me get out of a Bad Marriage back in the late 70's...by playing it all the time (with help from VITP). I will even frame the RC-5 Box!

Because I don't have a copy, I've wanted one, and the price difference between a musty and bland old Avalon Hill copy with no rule updates or variants shipped off eBay and the new shiny version from GMT is marginal. Why would I not get the new version?

Thanks for helping spread the word, everyone. We are very excited about this project and given the game some TLC. In case you missed it in the game description, one thing we are doing is including a Bonus Booklet sourced from published variant articles for the game. Think of it as a stroll down Memory Lane -- even if you decide not to dabble with these variants. As an added bonus, we're providing the counters for the variant articles as well (never available before).

Thanks again for helping spread the word. You definitely did that for us as we surpassed the P500 mark in less than two weeks after we made the preorder announcement. Soon we will be adding more graphics to the P500 page, including a sneak peek of the entire game map. We're also adding an option for those who want a mounted map version for this game, we will be adding that option next month as a few folks have asked for this.

Because it's an absolute classic and second-hand prices are currently beyond good and evil... devil

Do we have to choose between armor icons and NATO symbols? Or will both be included?

Hi Mike. Both styles are included so you can choose your preference. You can go 'old school' NATO reminiscent of this classic design or use icons for the AFV units.

I have copies of just about all the other versions of TRC, might as well get this one too. (Missing second edition and the bootleg Chinese version!)

Bootleg Chinese Version???? You're gonna get collectors exited...
...especially if the Chinese have bootlegged other games.

Fantastic! What a great idea. I wish more games offered that choice. Kudos!

There will be a mounted board offered separately, but I don't think the price has been determined yet. Keep your eyes on the GMT website.

I've played the Jedko Series II edition since it came out (I think I was around 18 years old) and I've pre-ordered two copies for the fact that I can "more or less" still be able to play the Jedko II version but with updated components (and bigger counters for my older eyes, lol), but if I desire I'll be able to play different versions as well. Also I like the idea of this Edition being fully endorsed by the great John Edwards, he's my favourite Designer ever. And he was a Victorian
Sooo can't wait.

ps: bring The African Campaign, Fortress Europa (option of playing Jedko version rules) and War At Sea/Victory At Sea.

Yes, pricing is set. I spoke to Tony at GMT Games and it will be same as the Unconditional Surrender mounted map purchase option they've run recently. P500 price is $28 and retail is $40. I'm working now to get this item added to the P500 program. Thanks!

Awesome. I still have the original game from Jedko games here in Oz.
Will certainly pre-order this.

Now, if only Tigers in the Mist could be re-mastered....(hint, hint).

Because the Russian Campaign was the first wargame I ever played at my local club. That was back in -94... Great memories, so looking forwards to this, pre-ordered the game and mounted map.

Because I played TRC more thant twenty years ago, but never purchased it.
The GMT version seems to hit the nail, by integrating the inputs of decades of refining the rules, adding variants, etc.

I am looking for a classic, rather simple Eastern Front game - and as memory serves me right, TRC clearly fits that desire.
