Hi guys!


First off, I just want to note that Mark Simonitch and I have just returned from the annual Consimworld Expo in Tempe, Arizona, an outstanding gaming event put on by John Kranz (thanks John, you did an awesome job of hosting us all, as usual) ! We got to see some new games and talk with a bunch of our team members about current and future designs. And Mark used the Expo to unveil his newest design - a Civil War strategic game whose origins hearken back to Eric Lee Smith's Civil War from Victory Games! You'll hear more from us about Mark's game as we get it on the P500 list later this year.


If you haven't been to a CSW Expo yet, and you get the chance to go, I highly recommend it. You can play monster games over the length of the Expo or opt for a bunch of smaller games, or an ongoing event like Mike Lam's Down in Flames Aces event or Greg Smith's The Hunters competition. And in between, you get to eat and socialize with fellow gamers as well as a ton of hobby personalities. So, when you can, check out the Consimworld Expo. It's a great event! 


This update also includes info on two new P500 additions, updated charging and shipping info, an updated Production Outlook, plus some news tidbits and Inside-GMT stuff in this column. I hope you enjoy it!



Thanks for your Support During our Sale!!


We want to thank all of you for participating in our recent sale. We had our biggest sale response ever from our customers, and we're able to add a large (well, large to us!) sum to our reserve funds that we plan to use to get some of our key out-of-print titles reprinted. Thanks so much for participating. I hope the games you received in the sale will bring you many hours of enjoyment!



Major Electronic Game News Coming Soon!


Just a quick heads-up to be watching your inboxes later this week for a major announcement from us on the electronic game front. I can't say more yet, but I think you guys are going to be REALLY happy. More news in a few days....


Counter Trays and Twilight Struggle Back in Stock


We got a big shipment of counter trays a couple weeks back, so they are now available, while they last. Here's the link for ordering:

GMT Counter Trays


Also, tomorrow (Tuesday) we're getting a shipment of about 17,000 more copies of the newest reprint of Twilight Struggle Deluxe Edition. We'll have that available on the website for order once they're in the warehouse.  



Fall GMT Weekend at the Warehouse will be held October 16-19


Come join us this Fall for 3-4 days of gaming fun at the GMT Warehouse. At the last Weekend at the Warehouse in April we had about 80 participants and had a blast!


To sign up for the event (registration is $25 which we don't charge until the start of the event), contact our office ladies via phone, online chat, or e-mail to reserve your spot.

Please call and reserve hotel rooms as soon as possible. The nice folks at the Sequoia Inn have rooms blocked for us at corporate rates. You can of course make other lodging reservations - we just use the Sequoia Inn because they are the closest to our warehouse and because they have taken care of our guests now for about ten years. If you choose the Sequoia Inn, make sure you tell them you want the "Billingsley Group" rate. The hotel phone is 559-582-0339.


We hope to see many of you in October!

New P500 Additions!


We have two new P500 boxed game additions to the list this time. One is the first in a new fast-playing air game series from Lee Brimmicombe-Wood. The other is a new addition to our Strategy Euro line with a theme that will be familiar to most wargamers! Both of these games are going to be massive fun!
We're also adding Cuba Libre, our smallest and quickest-playing of the COIN series games, to the P500 Reprint list this month, after it sold out in about 8 months! So if your're interested, click the link above or in the Reprints section and help us get Cuba Libre reprinted.
