For those of us who have been waiting, this is great news. Looks like it is coming out in April.

From their March 24 newsletter:

Quote:
Charging: Once we finish shipping Chariots of Fire, we'll begin charging for the two April releases, Leaping Lemmings and Stalin’s War. We'll notify you of an exact charge date as we near completion of next week's P500 shipments.

Though I feel a little screwed about paying $35 through GMT, when the game is available on ThoughtHammer for $26.

It's rarely the case--probably never the case--that pre-ordering a game from the publisher gets it to you more cheaply than waiting for it to show up in the on line stores and putting in a big enough order to get free shipping. You may want to keep that in mind as you contemplate future pre-orders. Don't blame the publisher though; they never promised that pre-orders would be cheaper than subsequent on line, free shipping prices.

You pre-order to help get the game published, not to get it cheaply.

The P500 price is $25, so I'm not sure what your concern is about. Are you worried about paying more at Thoughthammer? After the P500, price goes back up to full MSRP if you buy through GMT, but the pre-order price is usually discounted to what you can get through FOGS.

edit: The discounted P500 is not universal, but is always at GMT (and on the site you can still get it because it hasn't shipped yet). Other places that offer pre-orders will usually do something else, like the Agricola Animeeples or the Valley Games broken Generals, or the Age of Empires III six player set.

Ah okay... I did order via P500, but the ultimate charge was $35. I guess that would be the same if I ordered the single game from ThoughtHammer with shipping.

My brain stopped working for a bit there. Ugh.
