      Hi guys!
      Here are a few quick news updates and reminders before we get to the New P500 games: 
      1. A New Game Ships! As I noted on our Facebook page and on Consimworld earlier today, we are now shipping all P500 copies of Crown of Roses, and should be finished shipping by this coming Monday.
      Then we'll reconfigure the warehouse for the GMT Weekend (happening next Thursday through Sunday, the 18th-21st) and prepare to goof off and play games for a few days with a bunch of our friends! Once we've reset the warehouse again after the event, we'll start building, packing, and shipping again and get the distributor copies of Crown of Roses out the door.
       2. On the Electronic Games front, Dominant Species for iPad has been submitted to Apple! That's right, we uploaded our first iPad app to Apple this past Sunday.
      The folks at Apple tell us it'll be somewhere in the 2-4 week timeframe for it to go live on the App Store, though some of our friends at other companies tell us it's more like 1-2 weeks. So SOMETIME soon, you'll be able to play Dominant Species on your iPad. Apple says we'll know about a day in advance before it is going live on the App store, so will will post on our Dominant Species for iPad Facebook page and on our website once we know an exact date.
      The app price is $4.99 and the gameplay is the same as the boardgame (but MUCH faster - we are regularly completing 6 player games against the AI and local human players in 45 minutes or so, and you can SAVE at any point and pick up later), so hopefully we've created something here that is not very expensive but will give you guys MANY hours of fun and skill practice with Dominant Species.
       3. GMT Fall Sale: Quite a few of you have asked about our Fall Sale. It IS coming, just not until after we finish with the GMT Weekend (My name would be "MUD" with the office ladies if I ran a sale during the GMT Weekend). So look for it late this month, and be prepared to order pretty quickly, as it'll probably only last for 2-3 weeks (so the office/warehouse folks can still have time to build and ship all of those new November games after the sale is finished).
      4. Live Demos: I want to remind you guys again that  Joel Toppen offers ongoing game demos using Vassal and our GMT Ventrilo server. If you'd like to join us for these "learn the game" sessions, see our Ventrilo Voice Server page for a schedule and more details. Joel also often makes these sessions available as video archives on YouTube, so you can experience them at your convenience.  Enjoy! 
      5. Review Links at Left: Just a quick reminder about the Review Link feature within each update. If you'll check the left column of this Update (if you are receiving this via e-mail), there are a bunch of game box images for our recently-released games. Underneath each game box, you'll find links to a variety of recent third-party reviews of that product. Just click the link to see the review. For those of you who are looking for more information about our games or would like to see more gamer evaluation of  them, we hope you find these links helpful.
      Here's a quick TOC of what you'll find in the rest of today's update:
      - New P500 Additions!
      - Recent P500 Links
      - Charging/Shipping Update
      - Tentative Production Schedule
      - GMT Weekend Update
      - New Best-Seller Sections on our Website
      - New Game Support, Vassal/BC, and Sneak Peek Files
      Thanks, guys, as always, for your support of GMT!
      Enjoy the games!

      New P500 Additions!!!!

      These items are now avaiable for Pre-Order on the GMT Website, Just click one of the banners below to go to the P500 page for each respective product. You'll find lots more information and ordering details there.
      Blood and Roses Banner 1 
      Here's Volume III in Richard Berg's fast-playing tactical Men of Iron series, Blood & Roses, covering SEVEN battles from the War of the Roses. Lots of play for your gaming dollar in this one.
      Churchill Banner 1  
      It's been a while since we've seen a new design from Mark Herman, and we're excited! As we've come to expect from Mark, he's brought a completely new system and perspective to a familiar topic - this time it's World War II in Europe. Game play is tense and replayability is huge. Churchill  is going to be a lot of fun.
      C3i 26 Banner 1 
      The newest issue of C3i will be the biggest issue to date, with 64 full-color pages, a stand-alone mini-game, a full counter sheet, and plenty of extras for a variety of GMT games.
