GMT has posted an offer of up to 50 countersheets for SE4X for $14 each. According to the update email once those are gone they will P500 another round of them.

Link

EDIT: Looks like the only way to get them now will be to watch for them on P500 and order that way.

Re: Countersheet orders (limit of 50)
Each of the 50 available sets includes 4.5 countersheets in a thicker stock. This stock will be the same used in the expansion.

There is also ~1,000 0.5 countersheets available, which only includes more numeral markers and non-player alien ships. This 0.5 countersheet is also in a thicker stock to match the upcoming expansion. That 0.5 countersheet is available at this link:

Re: Countersheet orders (limit of 50)
Also take note that they said once they run out of the 50 available sets of 4.5 countersheets, they will add it as a P500 item. Once they're ready to ship Close Encounters (the expansion), they will print enough countersheets to fill those P500 orders.

So, there will be no minimum number of P500 orders to get the thicker countersheets printed. However, it may mean waiting a very long time to get those counters if you don't put your money down in that P500 batch.

That sucks guys, the good news is there's only about 20 more orders until the expansion clears the hurdle so preorders of the sheets shouldn't take horribly long.

Yeah, sorry about that, guys - those went QUICK!

I just set up a P500 item for the countersheets. Whatever number of orders we get here we'll print when we print the Close Encounters expansions. Note that we don't intend to print a bunch of these to sell to stores, stock long term, etc. So if you want a set, please order here at some point and we'll make sure we get you one when we print CE.

Here's the link to the P500 page for the Countersheet Set:

Enjoy the games!

Thanks, Gene. That was fast—both the sellout, and the new P500 item. Got my order in.

Considering the popularity of the game, not really surprised. Think I was within the first 100 to P500 the expansion anyway.

More money to GMT whistle

P500 placed for counter sheets

Got the game but sadly yet to play. Do we really need this half sheet to play the game? Or are they just good add-ons?

There were too few numerical counters for four players in the first printing, if everybody built lots of 1-sized groups - and you couldn't just leave them away while using the higher numbers, because that would give away 1-sized groups.

My own group has adopted the method of writing how big a group is onto the sheet where you keep track of your group's techs anyway - that leaves less clutter on the game board and makes the whole thing slightly less fiddly. And it makes it impossible to have too few numerical counters, because none at all are needed in the first place

Even if you don't do that, you can easily play without the additional half-sheet, particularly with 1-3 players. It doesn't hurt either, but the game is 100% playable without.

I have the 2011 edition of this game. Just got it last month, as I wasn't aware that there was a reprint coming (doh). I don't see any 1/2 inch counters, so I am assuming I don't have the upgraded thicker counters either. Not sure if I need to order the P500 4.5 counters or just the 1/2 inch counter sheet. Have yet to play the game, but I'm looking forward to giving it a go. Thanks.

You don't have the upgraded counters. You will only 'need' the 4.5 counters if you plan on buying the expansion as the counters would then be a different thickness. You will only 'need' the 0.5 counters if you don't want the 4.5 counters and/or run out of numerical markers during play.

Just to be clear - there are no 1/2 inch counters. The reprint has an extra half of a counter sheet filled with numeral markers and alien ships.
