A post Christmas Eve feast Facebook cruise reveals:

"We are sold out of this fine game in our warehouse, although I believe there are still copies available in the stores and distribution chain. So get yours soon if you want one!"

Big congrats to Matt Calkins. I picked this game up last week. I haven't had a chance to play it yet, but I'm a fan of the time period of the game, and the reviews have surely helped sell copies. I've pulled out the board, stickered the pieces -- everything is beautiful. Pick up the game while you still have a chance!

This is a pleasant surprise! I had not heard.

Sold out in 4 months, after 6 years on the P500 list...

I appreciate that gamers have been willing to give this a try in 2011.

I haven't played it yet to be honest. I'm very excited to though. A friend and I plan on playing our first game next week. Looks like it's going to be a lot of fun.

Congratulations Matt!

I've been getting back into boardgaming for about 6 months now. Sekigahara is the first GMT game I picked up, and I'm loving it. I consider it my favorite game of 2011, and favorite game in my collection right now. Because the rules are so simple to teach, I've taught 6 people how to play (2 ended up buying copies of the game as a result).

My next mission is to get my non-gamer wife to try it out with me. whistle

So, what are the plans of a second printing?

EvilBob's wife here Yes, I actually created an account. First step to being assimilated.

I don't mind playing the games. Truly, I actually do enjoy some of them. But hearing about them 24/7 is just a little over... oh it is just plain annoying. ]

Trust me when I tell you this guys. Do some dishes, clean the house help with the kids and your wives (or at least this one) would be much more willing to spend time playing games instead of worrying about what needs to be done while they are playing some awesome game like Sekigahara

Matt Calkins, contratulations on your success

Well, I'm responsible for two copies. The P500 went to a friend of mine as a long-delayed gift. The other went to myself with the 50% off.

Good job. Hopefully it won't take another 6 years for a reprint.

I'm not sure how GMT does their releases, but is this game not getting a reprint any time soon?

GMT send out an email to customers today which said Sekigahara is being reprinted and they wisely increased the box depth to 3" to better fit the components. Save your allowance, kids!
