As of January 8, 2007 GMT games' P500 list included eight games with 400 or more orders.

Considering I am a big fan of GMT's games, the purpose of this geeklist is to help push these games, which are "on the brink" past the 500 mark.

I am in no way affiliated with GMT games. I am just a fan of their games and am eager to see some of these titles sooner than later.

In order to do this, I am suggesting that those of us that have preordered any of these games show our support and order an additional copy. In my experience, I have never had any difficulty selling GMT product, be it on the BGG marketplace or another online auction forum. As a result, considering the savings of the P500 price, an additional copy purchased to push the numbers past 500, can easily be gotten rid of, without a loss, after the release. That being said, I encourage all of you to double up your orders and get these games produced and shipped! Those of you with money to burn...order two, three, four more!

For purely selfish reasons, I have put these in order of those which I would like to see printed first.

Son of York

P500 Orders: 437

Crossbowmen, Men-at-Arms, any sort of medieval theme and I am all in! Also, this game has been of the P500 for what seems like forever. As an added incentive, GMT lowered the P500 price several months ago to get this game pushed through the process.

Pacific Typhoon

P500 Orders: 480

480 Orders...20 to go I can almost feel the cards in my hand!

From the GMT description: Pacific Typhoon is a strategy card game for 4-6 players, ages 10 to adult. The game uses the same system that first appeared in the popular 1998 Avalon Hill card game Atlantic Storm.

I am a big fan of Atlantic Storm! What could be better than a fresh take on a classic?

Blackbeard: Golden age of Piracy

P500 Orders: 459

41 to go...can't you taste the saltly sea air! I don't think it has been 6 weeks that this has been on the P500 and its almost there.

This game looks amazing. It seems that the pirate theme is always popular even considering most of the pirate games made disappoint. Luckily, this pirate game comes with the credibility built in. Avalon Hill's version is touted as one of the company's most popular titles. Looking at the amount and quality of the components already revealed by GMT, it appearts they are eager to get this one out as well. Based on that I would guess the time betweem "in art and final development" and "on shelves" will be minimal.

Clash of Monarchs

P500 Orders: 425

Since the card driven greats like Hannibal: Rome vs. Carthage, We the People, Successors, GMT has continued to produce excellent games using this awesome system. According to GMT, Clash of Monarchs takes this system and expands it further by adding in a sub-game. In my opinion, any progress and continuation of the card driven system is a step in the right direction.

Successors III

P500 Orders: 409

Another Avalon Hill remake. From what I have read, it seems that Successors appeared to late in Avalon Hills existence for the games rough edges to be ironed out and the game expanded upon. It is great to see GMT recognize which games are the classics and take the steps to give them a well deserved facelift. If this is another direction GMT intends to take, in addition to their "own" titles, I am in full support of it, and think we should all be on board! I am pretty sure this game went from 0 to 400 on the P500 in less than 3 weeks.

Fields of Fire

P500 Orders: 481

19 orders to go!

A Solitaire game. Solitaire games are few and far between, and good solitaire games are even more rare. GMT has proven its ability to make a good solitaire game i.e. Hornet Leader, Thunderbolt/Apache Leader to name some.
