Also, we are working now on details of getting two very popular Card-Driven games reprinted somewhere late in the 2nd quarter (we'll get them into our Production Queue in the January Update as we finalize our plans):

Empire of the Sun, 3rd Printing
Paths of Glory, 6th Printing - Deluxe Edition

For more information on any of the above, or to order, just click the links in the game names to check out that game's P500 page. We hope you guys enjoy getting some of our most popular games back to your game tables in 2018!

Any idea why they are planning to include South Pacific but not Plan Orange?

Probably because South Pacific is a starter scenario that is part of EotS, but Plan Orange is essentially a separate game set in an alternate timeline.

I would love to see them expand the extended example of play to make it easier to learn. I love when the narrative is a useable place to start learning the rules.

Something like they’ve done with Cuba Libre and Churchill.

I am looking forward to the updated Erasmus (and to actually get the game, too, of course) and hope it will be useable with Southern Pacific, too, just to have a smaller-scale and shorter game to find my way in.

Will there be any changes to components for the 3rd printing? Or, will it simply include "South Pacific" and an updated solitaire bot.

I got the second edition, which has remained criminally un-punched thus far...

This is a second printing of the 2nd Edition, NOT a 3rd edition. So, no changes beyond (one typo I think) in the cards, map, or counters.

The big change is Erasmus 2.0, which we are testing on CSW as I write this with the files available in the file section.

Very excited! Just picked up 1st Edition on a PiF list and have already pre-ordered the 2nd Printing of the 2nd Edition.

Looking forward to Erasmus v2.0!

Will they have an Erasmus 2.0 sale only for 2nd edition owners?

Richard beat me to it. I imagine Mark will have it available for download via his site at least.

Erasmus v2.0 is in testing and the first portion of it is already available.

Fellow followers of Empire of the Sun. GMT pre-orders for the 3rd edition (or second printing of the 2nd edition if you prefer) stand at 487! We are almost there! If you've been on the fence about ordering, consider jumping on board and maybe we can get a release by late 2018 or early 2019. Thanks!

Hi!

I have contributed my little grain of sand by setting today my P500 preorder from Spain for this incredible great game (thank you Mark, you can add one more fan to your list!).

Hoping shipping will be during Q3 better than Q4 2018....

Regards

No - please do NOT bring the publication of the game forward into Q3 2018, as some of us already have another GMT preorder charging in Aug-Sept 2018. Please leave Empire of the Sun (3rd edn) to be published & charged in Q4 2018 or Q1 2019 - so those of us with little cash can save up for it!

Whatever the printing date, make sure ALL the changes, as well as map and counters NOT changed, nevertheless are accurate in every respect. There's really no excuse for component errata in a reprint -- yet often we see this very thing.
