Just wanted to let those who were waiting for a new printing, or the new art, know that it is now available on the P500 list...

$52 (it will be $79 after the P500)

Here's a link:
https://www.gmtgames.com/p-387-dominant-species-3rd-printing...

Enjoy!

(Let's not make this post a debate about the new art... start a new thread for that, or join one of the previous ones!)

Yay! Pre-ordered the full upgrade kit! Oh boy! Oh boy! Oh boy! It's really considerate of GMT to offer the upgrade kit and the cards for separate purchase. Many companies could follow their example.

Aren't these components thicker as well?

[edit: I'm not implying they should be, I just thought I had read that somewhere--Ah, it was the counters for the expansion to Space Empires, my bad]

Sorry for the noobish question, but what is P500? Also, aside from art, are there any differences in the editions?

ninja Read GMTs site...

No, they should all be the same as the last printing.

Nope, no functional changes.

The tiles are the hexes, so yes. Basically the only things not included are the wooden bits and the box.

AFAIK, there have been no changes to the box.

Ok, so just to be double sure...if you were to order the full 3rd edition and not just the upgrade kit, there would be a large picture of the 1st/2nd edition board on the back of the box? Doesn't seem right to me and I want to verify rather than assume.

No, of course not. The new component artwork will be featured in the component samples on the back of the box. The copyright date will obviously be different as well.

The *artwork* done by Eric Williams on the front of the box is what will remain the same.

Although you have your answer does it really matter? It could have a picture of an Aardvark for all I care.

Thanks Chad! I knew it was a ridiculous question when I asked it, but with this kind of money involved and "artwork" being the sole difference I think it's important to have all the relevant info when making an upgrade decision. Thanks again.

Does anyone know how shipping & tax works on ordering from GMT?

I tried doing the "Get Estimates" button but both came back as $0.

Add to this question my own question; does it really take 12 + weeks from the date your CC is charged before you get the game?

I have never purchased a P500 game, and admittedly I have been wanting this game for a while, yet paying for a game and then waiting 3 months to get it just doesn't seem like something that tickles my "happy spot" meter.

No. GMT generally charges for a game when shipping is imminent (read: a week or two out).

That's been my experience. 2 weeks tops. They don't take your money until it's ready to go.

Thanks for the reply. The GMT website mentioned "Up to 12 weeks" and I became extremely leery of hitting the purchase button.

Hmm. I'm guessing that's either (1) a really old policy that's yet to be updated on the website or (2) perhaps just a notice that it *could* be that long every once in a while if something unforeseen occurs at the last minute -- maybe a hang up at customs, or a printing error that causes one or more components to be reprinted.
