I was looking to play some FtP this weekend so I had it out on my kitchen table sorting the bits. My 16 year old son had some of his buddies over playing some video games. I had to make a run to the store and decided to leave things out since I was only going to be gone a short time. When I got back my son was sitting at the table drying off the counters! One of them spilled a glass of water all over the game. Fortunately, the map was contained in a poster frame so no damage there, but half of my counters are now 'puffy' and some of counter's color has faded and/or started to peel.

I don't even know what the kids were doing at the table. My son nor his friends have ever showed an interest in FtP, Geesh! My son felt really bad and even more so when I told him the game was out of print. I told him it was okay since FtP is in the works for a re-print, but I may have to wait a while though.

So, all you fans of FtP who were thinking about getting on the P500 for this one at GMT Games please do so. The faster that number gets to 500 the faster I can get a re-print. I was already on the list, but now I want it sooner rather than later. Last time I looked they were at 130 or so. And, oh yeah, the re-print will have a mounted map! (Just thought I'd throw that in there for all of you on the fence. Ha!)

Oh crap, Chris. Sorry to hear this. We still need to get a second game going. When I saw the title, I thought maybe you had won against someone, not this...

I'm also on the P500, so I can't help any more there. However, I will also try to get the word out to get the thing moving! ^_^

Thanks, Jon! But unless it takes REALLY long, I'll just stay on the P500 list. Although, I could buy now while still fairly cheap as the longer it stays out of print the higher the price will go I am sure.

See what you got to look forward to, Erich? As a point of advice, keep your kid and his buddies away from your out of print games!

Yeah, and at three he'll dump water on your game table just to see if the pieces float!

Clearly the only suitable punishment is for him to play a game with you!
