Well it looks like the VPG GMT partnership is going to be giving us deluxe versions of State of Siege games next.

Soviet Dawn, Levee en Masse and a brand new game, Cruel Necessity, are being offered together in a package called "Revolt and Revolution" on the preorder page.

With the great job they did with No Retreat, I'm looking forward to this game being published.

This P500 is a no-brainer. Soviet Dawn is my most played game, and one of my favorites.

Impressive! When I placed my order yesterday, there were 78 preorders. It's now up to 208!

I was looking at buying "Levée en Masse" recently and I'm pretty happy I decided to wait. The preorder price for this game covers the cost of buying it and both expansions. Very nice indeed.

The only thing I'm wondering about is the mounted boards, as most of my games of Soviet Dawn were played during breaks at work, the VPG version is nice and portable while this one probably won't be so much. But GMT quality cards and counters is an offer I can't resist.

Make that 209. Just placed my order. Great news indeed! I just received "Levée en Masse" & exp in the mail last week but that's okay. It will be handy to have for vacations or business trips.

Just before Christmas, someone queried here about Soviet Dawn getting the GMT treatment. I urged him to just order the game from VPG and not worry about the prospect of GMT picking up the title. Clearly I could not have been more wrong. Hence my Homer response.

Except, of course, that it still has to hit 500 and go through GMT's production process. Now, I expect it to do both relatively quickly, and I'd still expect a minimum 6 month wait. If he wants immediate gratification, get the VPG version. If he wants the GMT treatment and has patience and wants the other 2 games, by all means wait for whatever time it takes.

I already have SD and LeM and still pre-ordered the GMT version.

GMT's site shows pre-orders at 421. I say it'll be ready by Thanksgiving.

GMT's site now shows pre-orders at 477. Looking good.

Which seems reasonable, and that still means people will have to wait 10+ months from the initial offering to get a copy of the game.
