GMT has decided to add a second countersheet to 1989 and upgrade to deluxe style counters similar to No Retreat! and Twilight Struggle deluxe edition. No increase in P500 price. We are going to the printers on Friday.

Ted,

As the game is going to the printers on Friday, is there any chance of you (or GMT) posting the .pdf of the final rule book? Or maybe the box cover art? Or maybe the backs of the various card decks? Or maybe just hand delivering my copy NOW!

Yes. I'll ask GMT to post the rules and some sample cards on the P500 page.

I'm supposing we don't have to re-order if we've already P500'd it? All the orders already in place will be getting everything new?

Yes, GMT will include deluxe style counters in all copies of 1989.

What is the difference between deluxe style counters and the regular counters? Are the counters that are in Labyrinth game deluxe?

Also, is 1989 going to have the mounted board?

I can't wait for this game to come out. I pre-ordered it on GMT.

They are a little harder than the regular counters. They have rounded corners.

You have to, at least from a distance, look as if you know what you're doing, and I can manage that.
