Do we have a set release date yet Chad? I think you said end of August, but it is already September...just wondering if there were any delays.

From the latest GMT newsletter:
Quote:
As we noted last time, the [floods in China caused a] delay on the three games we are shipping now has cause a rolling delay with some of our games (the ones with boards printed at that same printer). We've had to move a couple other games back as well, due to designer request or art schedule conflict. But we still have a pretty full plate for this Fall/Winter.


So here's what the current game release schedule looks like:

Early October, 2011:
Labyrinth 2011 Reprint
Twilight Struggle Reprint
Urban Sprawl

Please some photos of the final product. Or a video of components and gameplay overview would be amazing. Can't wait.

I took a photo of the unboxed components laid out on my table, but I'm awaiting word from GMT on whether I have permission to post it yet.

By the way, this game comes in GMT's deep 3" box. The counters are nice & thick. Mounted board (with a perfectly cut 3/4-length split). Weighty matte paper for the rulebook. Even the money is printed on meaty cardstock -- no flimsy Avalon Hill notes here! And all printed colors are exactly the way I envisioned them: no oversaturation or hue shifts, etc.

The printer did an outstanding job all around.

Thick cardstock for the money? Yay! I really dislike playing with monochrome "power grid"-quality paper money...
This is indeed a big plus!

The money is not on thick card-stock like the counters are. It is still thick paper / thin card. If it were the same card-stock as the other game components your stack of money would be as big as a skyscraper

I'm not saying its bad quality - quite the opposite, it is very good, I just wanted to clarify. Yes, much thicker than AH money.

No, the game isn't just for two players: it plays 2, 3 or 4.

Yes, teams would work. Coordinate actions throughout the game, direct harmful effects towards the opposing team, and at the end fo the game simply add together the scores of each teammate to get one final score.

GMT don't have a presence at Essen and their games usually hit European distributors about four to five weeks after they are posted to P500 customers. That should mean it will arrive in November. So my guess will be that it won't make Essen.

Yes, the game should be at Essen -- look for it at the Udo Grebe Gamedesigns booth.
