Does anyone have any updates on the release date? It's now approaching mid-July and was wondering...

Seeing as they are gathering names for WBC pickup, at latest we are looking at a release at WBC (along with No Retreat!).

I got a shipping notice, but I'm not certain if it was for Space Empires or for C3i. I would have thought that GMT would have sent an e-mail saying that they'd started shipping though.

I got a shipping notice a couple of days ago too but it was for C3i (you can check the order number to work out which it is). There's a thread somewhere about C3i that says they just sent out all the international orders so that may be what other people have got.

Talked to GMT customer service chat and they said the following:

Antanette:
Space Empires looks like it will be shipping mid August. I do apologize about this delay. We aren't expecting the rest of the components for another two weeks or so.

Oh well, at least its coming and I've been very pleased with how well GMT has been communicating delay info actually.

Argh. That sucks. Was hoping to have it shipped to my parents' address in Canada and pick it up when I visit this July/August. That doesn't seem possible now.

I've got to say, living in the UK makes the whole P500 thing kind of pointless. The cost of shipping more than ofsets any savings made by preordering....

Gene Billingsley of GMT posted this on the ConsimWorld forum today:

"I am flying home tonight, guys, so should be able to check status in the morning and get you an update later tomorrow.

Take Care,

Gene"

It depends on the USD/EUR exchange rate. Ordering from GMT directly I get the P500 discount and have to pay $16 shipping, plus €10 customs inspection fee at the door. If I order from UGG in Germany I get 15% P500 discount, pay about €8 shipping, and no fee at the door. When the dollar goes up, GMT becomes less attractive, when the dollar goes back to it's true value GMT becomes slightly cheaper. And getting the game directly from GMT is faster too. But I just don't like having to rely on the whim of the Forex speculators, and always keeping cash next to the door for deliveries.

There are some new updates on Facebook about how Space Empires is coming along:
http://www.facebook.com/pages/GMT-Games/184579104920069
Sounds like the board is on it's way from China now. August 8-10 is when they are estimating shipping for P500 orders.

Sorry for the false alarm blush

Actually, since there are so many orders for the game, GMT announced that the pre-orders may take until Aug. 20th to complete. Since I was late to the party, I imagine I will be among those who has to wait until late Aug. to see it. cry

At the bottom of the email, it said "P.S. If Jesse Dean asks, don't tell him anything"...

lol... I actually got the email from them about something else entirely and at the end of it they put a note that they were shipping Space Empires starting on the 8th, I don't think it was a general email that everyone would have gotten.

Last I heard was

That timeframe still looks about right, though because we have so many orders for those, expect that it will take us ten days or so to get all the P500s shipped out.
