The GMT update for September lists this as Charging status now for shipment in mid-October! Woohoo!

Do you mean beyond the things that have already been revealed?

The latest image reveals -1 VP markers for Scottish and Venetian Phony Wars, Exploration Underway markers with -1 modifiers (looks like they also say Uncharted), a Thomas More marker to go with the new card for him (not sure we know the effect yet), and a Colonial Governor card that looks like it upgrades NE results on what I assume is the New World Colony table to pay out a Card instead.

The Colonial Governor (and it's flip side) is described at https://boardgamegeek.com/article/26310225#26310225.

I'm sure these will be available once the product begins to ship. GMT almost always has their rules and playbooks posted online.

Yes it does, assuming you're talking about the game and not the upgrade kit. The upgrade kit doesn't come with a map.

I've just uploaded a file that is an Index to the 500th Anv Ed. Look for it soon! I kept the one I made for the 2Ed so that owners/players can select the one they need.

This game is my first P500 from GMT. Typically how long until shipping after charging, and will they give us tracking info? Thanks in advance.

Sorry about barging in...

I'm interested in the update, but I live in Spain, and the shipping makes up for a 50% price increase plus the currency conversion fees.

I don't quite understand the P500 system. I don't intend to make anybody explain it in full for me, but I'd appreciate some pointers about how this works. Will this ever hit retail stores? Worlwide? Is there a limited print run exclusive to the GMT site?

And most important, am I on a deadline to purchase it until the listed P500 price rises?

Thanks and apologies in advance. I swear I tried to understand this when the new Gupta&Edwards game was announced, but it's a bit over my head.

I have seen no indications that it's a limited print run. Retail availability will probably hinge on whatever distribution arrangements GMT has in your part of the world. The discounted P500 price is still there as of when I looked moments ago--I can't remember when that disappears and bumps up to full retail price...probably when the status changes from charging to shipping, which could be any day now.

Update: very likely YES you're on a deadline, because they tweeted that shipping starts tomorrow.

Thanks, Joel! That's all the excuse I needed to make my third gaming purchase in two days shake

I hope I got it right -that "Europe friendly shipping"- sounded sensible.

The same question for delivery in Europe

Any news? I ordered it a month ago and still shows up as “not shipped”. I’ve read this is a common thing with P500 -wrong status but your order may actually be on the way-

Still, some reassurance from European folks who have already received it (or not) would be nice

The status has never been correct for me.

Hasn't reached Canada yet either -- be patient.

Weird. Canada comes before Malaysia in alphabetical order. Something's not right.
