Gosh, that website truly looks atrocious. Nothing on it gives me any envy to go through it, it's like I'm back in the early 90' zombie Either that, or a default page for a domain name placeholder... Anyway !

It's nice to have an Enhanced edition - I tried to love the original one, but the oldey looks didn't help, alas - but there are no more details about it ? No images, no insight as to how the rulebook may have been changed ? That's a little sad... as I'd probably try it out and just get the pre-order !

I'm sure more info will come out over time. It usually takes at least 6 months to a year for a game to come out once ut hits 500 preorder level.

They are also supposed to be coming out with a new website soon I believe.

Sure, but I suppose they already have that new art ? We can see a vague image; but nothing else. Wouldn't it be something neat to encourage potential buyers ? I P500ed Navajo Wars some years (!) ago, and it seems to me it's a more "known" game than The Peloponnesian War... so 6 months doesn't look very realistic

Everybody can do with a bit of non-conformism, and I'm sure I'll miss it when the new website will go up next week.

Well, if I hadn't been on that page on purpose, I wouldn't really feel attracted by the company that goes this far in non-conformism... but it's just my two cents, indeed !

The Website is being upgraded next week (it's been a going concern the last 3-4 years).

My wife actually started to study the code - she's a webdesigner - but I told her that a redesign was underway. She'd probably end up offering her services to help out ninja

And just to clarify : I did mean to actually inquire about the design of the website, not just bash on it... because I'm also deeply interested in the new version of the game, as I felt quite sad to not having managed to get into the game.

A lot of wargame companies have worse websites than GMT. And have you used http://www.consimworld.com/? I have my complaints about GMT's site (mainly the search) but it does its job for the most part.

So did I! I own the original game and one of the better parts of that game was the booklet included a great deal of information about the historic facts. High educational value and it happens to be a great and easy-to-learn game.

I asked if there was a chance for a reprint of this game last fall.

Maybe, but right now Pericles covers the same topic and plays well solitaire, so I'm in no rush right now as I have moved onto other projects.

Mark


I figured there was no way, with Pericles taking on the role of the more recent "golden child".
A very pleasant surprise!

first time a date is mentioned : https://mailchi.mp/38c15d3f0429/june-18-update-from-gmt

"Early-Mid 2019"

Of course, this will probably slip, but hey, at least a date.

I'm especially curious about the visuals. I do hope the units will depict some prettier art of Hoplites etc.
Rules are important but I demand a minimum of visual appeal if i'm going to have to lean over a game for 3 hours...

Vae Victis is a magazine that rocks.

Je suis Belge donc... français, néerlandais, anglais... aucun problème!

Oh I know But I don't solo multi-player games, and I wouldn't have a partner for those games... so no real purpose.
