In late 2010, we formed a strategic partnership with our friends at Victory Point Games. The focus of this agreement was to create a collaboration to bring some of the best of VPG's games to a broader market of gamers, utilizing VPG game systems enhanced with high-quality components (mounted mapboards, large thick counters, standard sized cards, etc) under the GMT Games label. These "Deluxe Versions" also include expansions, upgrades, and/or new battles in addition to what is included in the VPG versions of the games, so there is a lot here that is brand new even to veterans of the VPG versions. All of the GMT/VPG games we've thus far agreed to collaborate on are listed below. Here's our quick take on each of the games:
The first game released under this collaboration was NO RETREAT: Deluxe Edition, which launched in August 2011, to broad acclaim and excellent sales. We added a second game in this series, No Retreat: The North African Front, on February 16, 2012. We anticipate adding future No Retreat series games to this line as they become available from VPG.
We are currently working together with VPG to bring you three more games, all of which are currently on GMT's P500 list.
As you can see, FADING GLORY, the first of our Nappy 20 Series quadgames (we hope to do many), is well over the 500 threshold and on its way to a mid 2012 release. These four-game packs are "entry level games on steroids," with a small number of counters in each game, but very interesting systems and tons of replayability.
CIRCUS TRAIN is one of VPG's most popular Family Games. We are committed to bring our customers the best of VPG's family-style games to augment our entry into the Eurogame market, and should add another family game to our P500 list sometime in early 2012.
In January, 2012, we added a new P500 offering for REVOLT and REVOLUTION, containing three games from one of VPG's most popular and best selling series', the State of Siege series. We think all of the VPG games we've chosen are terrific, but this may well be the best of the bunch, as these State of Siege solitaire games are really something special.
We invite you to click the game boxes below to get more details on each game, and, if you like what you see, place a P500 order to help us get these published. We at GMT, and all of our friends at VPG, deeply appreciate your support of our venture.
