Apparently, someone is not a fan of CDG's, opting for a root canal before seeing any of them reprinted!

"I'd rather have a root canal" is probably a poor option to have. Would-be publishers are interested in the number of people interested, and not the number that is not interested. Besides, I suspect that some people voting in that column would have vested interests, i.e. preserving the value of the copies.

not a single game on either list holds any interest for me. I didn't vote at all as I'm not in the root canal category either, simply don't care.

I own some of the original games, so in some cases, it's a matter of indifference to me if they get republished.

I did vote for some in the first list for which I'd like to see an updated treatment (VitP especially). I didn't vote for any CDG's in the second list, because (perhaps similar to your point) I either already own perfectly serviceable copies of the games listed and therefore don't care if another one comes out, or, like you, I'm not interested in the game. I'd agree that providing selections between "maybe I preorder" and "root canal" might have been a good choice. Something like "already have satisfactory copy", and/or "indifferent - take or leave".

This needs one or more neutral responses, like "wouldn't pre-order it but would check it out once published" and "not interested in the game".

I own all but 6 of the CDG's, and since those others are still available...I don't see a need for a reprint (though I could be convinced to buy new mounted boards with snazzy maps of some of the existing CDG's [like Mahaffey's redux maps]).

No Blitzkrieg!

Almost none of the old AH classics.

Many of the CDGs are still in stock or even just came out -- not sure what the point of the question is for them.

I'm perfectly indifferent regarding those oldies.

As for the CDGs, I own a fair number of them. Pretty much all I really want.

Pretty weird poll, I gotta say.

I really loved VG's The Civil War. It played historically and was a great game. It would be one to update and reprint.

One not on your poll that is getting updated is Pax Brittanica.

Exactly. This poll misses the intent of the first message thread. Where's Midway? Afrika Korps?

And games like sucessors 3rd and twilight struggle are currently in print so preordering them seems pointless

I'd immediately pre-order 88.

Anything else is a budget-concerned maybe.
