It would appear from an update from GMT that this expansion will ship between 7th and 10th December.

Touch and go for a UK Xmas delivery. Still very glad that its on the way.

How's that?

No news on Epic yesterday. I can't help wondering how that Pearl Harbour thing worked out though.

I just called them, and they said the epic game for Napoleonics will ship later in the month of December. I suppose that means past the 15th, but before the 30th.
Looking forward to receiving the game!

My first was booked for the end of October. I had rebooked for 27th December.

Again. GMT never seem to deliver a C&C product 'on time'. And by that I mean we should always expect several delays (often at short notice) totalling months. Shoddy.

Most of us got the Austrian, Prussian and Marshalls and Generals expansions in December of the release year but it looks like 2017 for this one.

Any news on this? I have been vacillating about ordering from GMT or waiting until it appears in game stores. While the early price is relatively cheap, shipping adds quite a lot and I have been stung with fairly hefty import duty before. So the cost is a little off putting particularly with the pound to dollar value. I was wondering if it doesn't ship now until 2017 if it might become eligible for the new GMT Euro friendly arrangement.

Tricky one this. Going down the P500 route ensures the game gets produced - just like a Kickstarter pledge. But, given UK import taxes and now the post-Brexit pound, the price isn't always necessarily that much cheaper. On average I've seen C&C:N expansions with UK retailers 7 - 10 days after I received my P500 order.

They confirmed some time ago this going through Second Chance Games, so no duty on this one. Everything has followed that route for some months already.

I don't mind going P500 in order to get something published, and have done that for all C&C:N since the Russian expansion, however, it has often not been cheaper and in fact quite a bit more expensive than buying in the UK.

Thanks for that, I hadn't realised it was the case and in fact I have just been through checkout for it, which popped up a Euro friendly option although that was not an option in the basket as such. Having said that given that Second Chance is a normal game store I wonder if they are just including the Euro friendly games in with their normal shipment to them, so that the P500/GMT direct order games will simply arrive at the same time as the normal games in UK stores.

Texas!

If no one else gets notified within a day or so, I will assume it is a false alarm and someone has just sent me a present cry
