In the latest GMT update from Gene, he says...

"Fortunately, Tony had been working with a private individual this summer who had offered to finance a large print run if we used the funds to get the Commands & Colors line back in print. This aligned with our desire to keep those games in stock and provided the funding in one big chunk. It took Mark very little time at all to get the files ready for the printers (minor errata updates), so Tony dropped the seven C&C reprint titles into those available print slots, solving both our out-of-stock and our open print slots problem in one big move. It's at times like this that I thank the good Lord that I get to work with Tony Curtis!"

So, the question is which 7 commands and colors games are getting an early reprint?

There are 4 in Ancients marked "Out of Stock" but the 2/3 combo pack just got added to the list so that one is probably out of luck (3 orders so far).

Base Game 234 Orders
Expansion #1 195 Orders
Expansion 2/3 3 Orders
Expansion #5 259 Orders

Napoleonics there are 4 that are out of stock.

Spanish 0 Orders
Austrians 0 Orders
Prussians 76 Orders
Russians 38 Orders

So, I'm hoping for an epic Ancients reprint -- that's the only one I need to complete both Napoleonics and Ancients.

Which expansions do you guys think/hope are in the "set of 7" that got sent to the printer?

Oh, I see that later in the update. Sigh. The single one I need reprinted is the one that got skipped.

I've been wanting Expansion #1, so I'm very pleased with the move up the queue (I'll probably eventually want #5 as well, but that is less pressing)

And just weeks after I paid big bucks for the out-of-print Napoleonics expansions thinking the reprints were years away... well, in any case, glad more people will get to enjoy them!

Tyler,

I am guessing that Epic Ancients is getting an overhaul before a reprint.

I have all of them, (except epic), but I believe this is wonderful news. I would love to see the games played more, by more people, face to face without the impersonal habit of technology. This is good news indeed.

Actually they put all the OUT-OF-STOCK games in "at the printer" status, except for expansion Epic #5 (is this a nonsense? its the most supported at the moment)
