What's so great about it?

I got an e-mail today and just kept thinking, "What the heck, I don't remember preordering this."

Then I went to the page and saw it was a solitaire friendly Mark Herman game and remembered that's why I had preordered it. It's like a surprise that I didn't know I was looking forward to!

*edit* I started reading the rules and read the first "historical note" and it got me even more excited for some reason!

Got mine as well! First p500 too, for the sake of future p500's I hope this proves a great game

Was wondering about the pricing though, got charged 85$ and having it shipped to Europe. Haven't followed closely GMT's new european shipment costs changes, but trying to understand if this is the p500 price plus shipment, or got charged the default price.


Also note that I had p500'ed this before the changes to EU policy but I am quite certain I changed the shipment option once it became available.

Any clues?

I think it is just a coincidence that the charge was $85. I chose the slow non-Asia surface shipping option, which is supposed to be a bit cheaper up front, and which did come in cheaper.

The P500 price for the game is $59. I was charged $74 (as was Scottgun). Seems we were charged $15 shipping & handling, so if you were charged $85 it looks like $26 S&H was charged.

edit: bad math

Hi Declan, hoping to get there, but it is really unpredictable whether I can make it.

It's because you had "Euro Friendly" option enabled.
Mine cost 59$ + the 17$ shipping, exactly 76$.
Euro Friendly should only be chosen over "Slow/Non-Asia" if the order value surpasses 150$ or a certain weight, so as to avoid possible customs charges and tax/VAT (not applicable in Greece).

Pm me for more if you need any further info m8.

Didn't get a charge notice here.

Don't know. If it were me, I'd call GMT and check. They're very friendly and helpful.

I second that.


I left a message on their web site thingie (it cracks me up).

Hopefully I'll get a shipping notice soon, since I ordered it only yesterday I'm sure I'm pretty far down the list.

But yeah, need to get this game. It's been literally hours since my last game purchase. *sigh*.

Anyone have a guess as to when we may start seeing these? If memory serves, it was a rather short time after I was charged that I recieved Churchill reprint(2nd ed.) It may of only been a couple weeks at most(but my memory may be failing me).

According to this thread, the ship with the games has docked in the U.S., so it's just a matter for clearing customs, getting the games down to GMT and shipping from there. I'd guesstimate that they will be popping up about mid-April.

No, it's not. You may want to contact GMT straight away.
