Hi everyone! 

I hope that you are all well and that you are finding some time to relax and play some games.

We have a BUNCH of new P500 additions this time, as well as several P500 reprints, and lots of other news, so I'm going to keep my intro section brief today and move right to the news.

First off, I get a lot of questions along the lines of "Are we going to see any more releases for Chad Jensen's games?"

Chad's Games and Where We're Heading. As many of you know, Chad was my good friend as well as a tremendous designer for GMT, so thinking about Chad's games isn't easy for me. The loss still lingers. I talk with Kai often, and even now, 15 months after Chad's passing, when our conversations turn to Chad, it's not unusual for both of us to shed tears.

But the future of Chad's games is a fair question to ask, and we have been doing some work and planning in the background, so I'll share a bit of that here.

Most of you probably know that our most recent release, Dominant Species: Marine, was the last game that Chad had in pre-production status with us when he got sick. I can still see his face and hear his voice at that last Weekend at the Warehouse he and Kai attended in April of 2019, as he told me how he had made the system in our #3 all-time best-selling game (Dominant Species) "even better" by listening to and interacting with customers online to identify the three areas of the game that most frustrated players. In DS: Marine, he addressed all three areas, and he was very proud of the result. So am I, and I hope, as more and more of you play the game over the coming months, that you'll appreciate Chad's design genius in making the DS system even more fun and playable in DS: Marine
and that it will bring you many, many hours of enjoyment around your game tables. For Chad, that was the ultimate goal.

What you may not know is that, circa 2019, Chad also had several other games in various stages of design completion. With Kai's help and approval, we have slowly begun to work on developing and finishing those games, in concert with other members of our design team who have volunteered to help, so that you all can enjoy a few more of Chad's creations. For example, one of our accomplished designers
and a friend of Chad'sis well along in finishing a game that Chad thought was "really close, but there's one sub-system that doesn't work." In Chad's world, that "doesn't work" usually meant that 98% of people would like it, but he wasn't yet satisfied (and likely Kai wasn't either). So the current designer is working on that sub-system, in conjunction with Kai, while also building out the entire project to get it ready for art and production. I can't give you dates just yet (the creative process being what it is), but I think it's likely you'll see this game on our P500 list by the end of 2021.

After Chad passed, during one of our phone conversations when Kai and I were discussing Chad's games, she told me: "The one game that Chad really wanted to see published was Golden Gate Park." As many of you know, that game was on our P500 list for a while, and it had trouble hitting 500 (Euro-type games often do). One day, Chad called me and said he'd like to take the game off of P500 for a while so he could work on it and think about how better to present it. I agreed, so the game went back to his game table. Kai says that Chad finished it but was still leery about its prospects on P500. In one of our conversations, she told me something along the lines of "If there's anything you could do to honor Chad and make him happy, it would be to get Golden Gate Park published." I talked with Tony, and he agreed with me that it's something we could and should do, so when Kai is ready and we feel like the timing is right, Golden Gate Park will go back to the P500 list and into our Production Queue. I hope that many of you will support the game on P500 when it comes back.

There are a few other projects that aren't far enough along yet to talk about. But there are other published series, like Combat Commander and Fighting Formations, that we absolutely intend to continue to publish and support, including adding new Battle Packs and expansions to each series as they become available.

Kai has a CC Battle Pack in the works, and we also want to do a "Tribute to Chad" CC Battle Pack that will include new scenarios from many of our current designers and developers. You've seen Volko Ruhnke and John Butterfield, among others, create scenarios in the past, and we're looking to bring other accomplished designers and "friends of Chad" together to create a very special Tribute Battle Pack. If you have an interest in creating a scenario or helping Kai with CC Battle Packs, please contact her, or if you don't have her email, send me a note, and I'll put you in touch. 

For Fighting Formations, we have people who helped with previous series products now at work on new content for the series. I'll get you more details on that as we have them, but that work is ongoing.

I hope those of you who have wondered about the future of Chad's games find this information helpful. As always, we'll share more details as each project gets closer to readiness for P500 and production.

GMT One Update - from Jason Carr. GMT One has been very busy since the beginning of the year. We have built a team of over two dozen designers, developers, and playtesters busily working on many projects. Here's a peek at what we've been working on!

First up, Ken Kuhn has finished development work on the CDG Solo System, and that is already being laid out. The response to Stuka Joe's system was amazinglike many of you, we have had to lean on solo gaming this past yearand we are very excited to get it into your hands. As new games are released which could benefit from this system, we plan to include playsheets in the box or as free downloads on the GMT website. Additionally, Ken will be working to create playsheets for some of GMT's rich backlog, so make sure to let us know which games you would like to see supported.

Two bot systems have been finished in the last month: bots for Harold's Flashpoint: South China Sea and Fred's Red Flag Over Paris. The response from testers has been very positive, commenting on the clarity, simplicity, and fun to be had with these games and bots. If you're in the market for a strategic and engaging solitaire game that can be played in an hour or less, check these two games out!

Finally, I have been working with Mike to add full support for the Robata system to every one of the scenarios in Tank Duel: North Africa and the first Tank Duel Tank Pack. This has only succeeded because of the tireless efforts of our testers (thank you!and Mike's desire to see first-rate solitaire play for Tank Duel.

If you or someone you love would like to help design, develop, or test these solo systems, please let us know! We are always looking for bright and kind people to join our development and testing teams. - Jason

Fields of Fire Series Development. We're excited to announce that Jason Carr and our GMT One Team are now working with Designer Ben Hull as Developers for this series. I personally love the immersive narrative that this series creates and am in awe of Ben's historical knowledge and the genius of his solitaire engine for Fields of Fire. I am very excited to see how Jason and his team augment Ben's creativity with their skills to enhance these games and expansions over time.

Playtesters Wanted. 
If you would like to help playtest some of our games (and get a free game out of it), here are some specific games that could use extra testers now. Please email the Designer/Developer listed below if you are interested. Thanks in advance for your help!
Hitler's Reich 2nd Edition Rules. I guess I didn't do a good enough job getting this info out there, as I've had several "When will the new Hitler's Reich rules be ready?" queries lately. The answer is they have been finished now for several months (thank you to Kai Jensen and everyone else who helped with the revised version) and are available for free download from our website. As you'll see, Kai did a tremendous job on these new rules, which are now the template for all further games in the Card Conquest Series, including today's new P500 offering, Hannibal's Revenge. Here's the link to download the rules pdf: Hitler's Reich Revised 2nd Edition Rules

The Players' Aid Interview with SpaceCorp Designer John Butterfield. Our friends at The Players' Aid recently published an in-depth interview with the legendary John Butterfield, focused on some details of his SpaceCorp: Ventures expansion. For those of you who would like an illustrated peek inside that expansion and an interesting read (because you always learn something talking with John), check it out here: The Players' Aid Interview with John Butterfield

New P500 Additions. We have FOUR exciting new titles this time. Also, see our three new P500 Reprint additions below.
First up, we have the first expansion campaign for Fields of Fire! As I noted earlier in this newsletter, I really love the historicity and the solo system that Ben has built into Fields of Fire and am so happy that Jason and the GMT One team are going to be developing the system as we move forward. In this expansion campaign, you get seven new scenarios that follow the Manchus in the desperate fighting over three weeks in December '44 and early January '45, plus new terrain cards to represent the Ardennes terrain over which these battles were fought. And you get those things at a terrific ($16) P500 price! Click the link or the banner below for more details!

Fields of Fire: The Bulge Campaign

Hannibal's Revenge is the 2nd game in Mark McLaughlin's Card Conquest Series. This time, Mark and his team take the fast, furious fun to ancient Rome and Hannibal. This series got stalled a bit after the difficulties with the Hitler's Reich rules, but now that Mark and the team have worked with Kai Jensen to get an updated 2.0 version of the HR rules in place (that will serve as the template for all future series games), we're moving forward with what we think is a very cool and exciting series.

Hannibal's Revenge

It's great to be able to bring you WWI gaming fans a new entry in Geoffrey Phipps' Rifle and Spade series, which began with Gallipoli, 1915. Those who've played Gallipoli know that Geoffrey is a thoughtful designer who delivers a game that is a deep and replayable experience. For Mons 1914, Geoffrey has overhauled the series rules to speed play and ease learning. Key charts have been simplified and rules that were rarely used have been dropped, resulting in faster and smoother games (they work with Gallipoli, too). I think you'll all appreciate the faster play and being able to more easily navigate another of Geoffrey's "large and lucious" WWI games.

Mons 1914: The Mad Minute

I couldn't be more excited about our 4th P500 addition, a new version of Nick Karp's classic Vietnam game of the 80s. Those of you who know me know that I LOVE playing this game. I'm thrilled that we can bring you a new GMT version. Here's a word from Nick:

“It has been wonderful to see the intensity and dedication of Vietnam's players over the years. I am truly delighted that the game will soon be back in print; that the ambiguities and errors in the original manuscript will be resolved; and that players will have the benefit of new, fresh graphics, with charts and aids optimized to streamline play. I am thrilled and honored that GMT has taken on the project, giving me the opportunity to revisit the challenges and joys of modeling an incredibly complex and intriguing part of our history.“

Vietnam, 1965-1975

P500 Expansions/Upgrades/Mounted Maps. None this time.

P500 Removals. None this time.


Here is a brief tease for P500 additions lining up in the coming months. This month's new Vietnam 1965-75 is the game referred to in last month's clue of "A game set in Southeast Asia," and Hannibal's Revenge was teased last month as "A game that features Hannibal" (brilliant, I know!). And this month's Fields of Fire: The Bulge Campaign was mentioned in December as "New content for Fields of Fire." Note that this is not a comprehensive list (nor will I preview EVERY game we have planned), so I will switch these up a bit from month to month. Over the coming 1-6 months, I anticipate that we will add:

  • Game #1 in our new Irregular Conflicts Series, set in India
  • A new strategy game of 15th century Japan
  • A new game designed by Mark Herman and Geoff Engelstein
  • Game #2 in our new Irregular Conflicts Series, inspired by English fiction
  • A new GBACW expansion for Death Valley

Thanks to a combination of talents from a variety of skilled videographers and game teachers, we are developing a significant base of "How to Play" videos for our games. If you want to learn one of our games but learning from a rulebook just isn't your thing, or if you'd just like to "let a friend teach you the game" (as so many of us do when we can do face-to-face gaming), check out these excellent teaching videos!

New Listings This Month:

Nevsky Video Tutorial Playthrough Series. In this video series, Jean Michel Grosjeu (his YouTube channel can be found here) teaches how to play Nevsky using practical examples and rules explanations that are easy to follow. Volko calls these videos "Magnificent." We hope you agree. Enjoy!

Next War: Vietnam: Easy to Miss Rules.
Joel Toppen uses his experience with the game (check out his video replays on the GMT YouTube channel) to take you inside the game and help you with some rules that are easy to overlook.

Here's a February update from our friend Joel Goodman - CEO at Playdek:

Hi everyone, Joel here from Playdek. We are currently working on an update for Labyrinth that addresses multiple fixes and improvements and hope to have that out within the next few weeks. After this update we will be spending time on getting the first update out that has working A.I. as well as additional improvements. There has been progress on the game A.I. but we still have some work to do and don’t have a fixed date yet for that update. However, we want to let everyone know that it will be a part of our next progress step.

We currently have the game running on iOS and Android devices and are testing the game on those platforms concurrently with PC and Mac, with the intent of a full release on those platforms when the game exits Early Access. That will come after we have rolled out the A.I. on Steam and have gotten your feedback implemented. If you have any questions or issues please reach out to us at Thanks! - Joel

Coming This Week on InsideGMT!
Here's an update from Rachel on this week's upcoming InsideGMT articles:

Lots of great stuff this week on InsideGMT! On Monday, we published a fantastic article from Kevin Shewfelt in which he does a playthrough focusing on the first few turns of A Time for Trumpets in one sector to demonstrate the basic flow of play. His article will be especially useful to you if you’ve considered playing the game but want to know a bit more about how the core mechanics work. You can read that article here.

Yesterday on InsideGMT, we posted the fourth article in a fascinating series from J. Carmichael discussing the factions you can play in Red Dust Rebellion. This particular article covers the Church of the Reclaimer (also referred to as Cult of the Reclaimer) faction, which is a modern faith based on a combination of modern age spiritualism, transhumanism, and extreme environmentalism. If you would like to read the previous three articles discussing the other factions, you can do so here

Today, we published a Congress of Vienna development update from Frank Esparrago and Fred Schachter. In this article, you will find a detailed update of all the changes made to the game map between November 2020 and February 2021. Enjoy!

The final article of the week (going up on Friday) will be a piece from
designers Dan Bullock, Chris Bennett, and Joe Schmidt about strategy and actions available to you when playing the Opposition in In the Shadows. Enjoy!

I invite you to visit this week to check out the aforementioned articles (and more!) from our team of excellent InsideGMT contributors.

This first update of 2021 conveys wonderful news! ACME now has its initial complement of graphics thanks to the exemplary talents of Mark Mahaffey, and what a sight they are to behold!

Mark McLaughlin's functional hand-drawn map, which graced many a playtest table and a number of InsideGMT articles, has been transformed into a thing of beauty, with its various terrain features now artistically rendered. 

ACME's colorful disks, representing 17 civilizations across some 3,500 years of tumultuous history (the game allows players to choose up to 6 of these for each contest), can now range across a map of seas, desert, fertile, plain, and mountainous areas. There are also rivers and homeland areas depicted. A homeland area, identified by unique indicia, accommodates a civilization's colored homeland block and its stickered deity block (unless it is "godless"). The game's tracks for Epochs/Turns, civilization sequencing, and victory point tabulation are presented within the map's lower center for player(s) convenience.

Mark Mahaffey also converted our playtest Ancient Civilizations of the Middle East cards into eye-catching, effective, and period-evocative pieces of art. He's managed to include each card's instructional text, a relevant biblical quote (which Mark McLaughlin greatly enjoyed researching) which during playtesting some gamers would announce to their fellows in a suitably basso profoundo voice to the merriment of all, and a related illustration. Very nice indeed! Here are selected samples...

We look forward to sharing additional graphic developments as they become available. Thanks P-500 subscribers for your interest and support of Ancient Civilizations of the Middle East. - Christopher, Mark, and Fred

CDG Solo System - Developer Ken Kuhn

After the launch announcement last month, we kicked the final development stage into high gear, and, with the help of the extremely supportive and committed GMT community, we blasted through final blind playtesting. We had 20 playtesters review the rules for clarity and individually play one of the six titles supported by the system. I can confidently say that the rules and playsheets are in great shape. I have sent all of the information over to Mark Simonitch to get things moving on the art front, which is exciting. - Ken

Next War: Poland/Supplement #3 Update - Designer Mitchell Land

I’m happy to report that playtesters seem pleased, overall, with the addition of the extension map. Moreover, the revised and slightly beefier Russia OoB have made the game even more engaging and tense. I look forward to seeing the pre-order numbers for both of these pushed over the hump, so we can move on to the next project. Just a reminder that Supplement #3 will contain everything needed to upgrade the 1st Edition Poland to 2nd Edition along with some other goodies for other games in the series as well. - Mitch

Prime Minister - Developer Ken Kuhn

Since last month, Paul has been diligently working on writing InsideGMT articles and designing/testing new scenarios, which provide narrative and historical flavor as well as varied play experiences for different player counts. The community has shown quite a bit of interest in the game, and about a half dozen or so people have volunteered to do blind playtesting as we move into that stage. - Ken
