It appears to be out of stock everywhere (UK) and I'm not prepared to pay the hyper inflated prices just yet.

They'll probably add a comma to one of the cards and various other little corrections.

Since this is a P500 game, does that mean that they won't reprint this until 500 people have committed to purchasing it on the GMT website? Is that how it works for reprints as well? I apologize for my ignorance, but I've never signed up for a P500 game before, and it seems like they have a long way to go.

Is your score positive? You win! (Some players win more than others.)

tl;dr: Not for reprints.

In general: once a new P500 game gets to 500 pre-orders they start talking art and production and such. However, at this point the game generally won't be considered for a slot in the production calendar until it gets to around 750 preorders. (There are always exceptions.)

For reprints it's a little different. Games slotted for reprint /will/ be reprinted. The P500 is partly a way to gauge reprint interest, and partly a way to give pre-orderers a discount.

In the case of Falling Sky I don't see it on the tentative schedule for the rest of the year ( http://myemail.constantcontact.com/-GMT-Update--February-21-... and scroll down), so the earliest I'd expect to see it would be early next year. Might get squeezed into the latter half of 2017, though.

Edit: But you can buy a copy on the geekmarket from Germany, Belgium or the UK. They cost about 80 to 85 Euros...

Cheers, Jonas

Unless you are dead-set on getting this game, I'd recommend getting a different COIN game and waiting for Falling Sky to be reprinted. 80 to 85 Euros is about twice the retail price (at least in the US). The game is good, but I don't think I'd pay double the retail price for it.

I found an unplayed copy for a little less than retail price (in Sweden). Got it yesterday I don't think my girlfriend will be interested in this so I will probably play this solo. Will start with the playbook

You are right, if it doesnt matter which conflict. I, for example, am not to keen for the other COIN games theme-wise; so its Falling Sky or nothing

There's also Pendragon: The Fall of Roman Britain, coming early/mid next year. It's not the same theme, but kinda similar.

Second Chance Games in the UK have a copy. I have bought from them several times and they are very good.
