We’ve listened to you guys who’ve asked us to consider offering many of the battles from the out of print SPQR modules along with the SPQR reprint. But we’ve also aware that some of you just want a reprint of the original game. So we’ve decide to offer three separate products to hopefully fit as many customer needs as possible, and let the P500 process decide what we print. We hope this approach will be helpful. Note that these items still have to pass the P500 order threshold, but we’ll print one, two, or all three that do.

Note:If you have an existing order for the straight reprint but want to change that to an order for the Deluxe version (and we hope the awesome pricing Tony managed to get for the Deluxe version will be a nice incentive to upgrade!), just drop us a note or put a note in the comments section of the website order page and we’ll make the change for you.
