Any idea where I could get one or if it is even possible? Maybe someone has one and doesn't want it any more?

Navwar is selling them under license in the UK.

Navwar is the ONLY one selling them.

Last Square has them in the US.

I believe it was reprinted last year

Get some good reading glasses. The print is small for "mature" eyes.

You might want GQ 1 and 2. The second book is mostly WWI, but has some more ship stats and rules.

I ordered mine direct from Navwar, which has kind of an old-fashioned ordering system (air mail…). I don't recall how I paid for it; perhaps I just printed the credit card number on the order form. You can also phone him early Saturday morning (USA time), per his website.


I bought 4 copies each of both GQ-1 and GQ-2, just for future insurance.

That was a good idea buying multiples. If you ever want to sell one let me know.

I could sell you a pair (GQ-1 and GQ-2), but why not buy a pair from Navwar direct?

Yeah, I'll probably go that way. Didn't want to wait but I've waited this long :)

I had forgotten about GQ until my friend said he played third 3rd edition.

But if you do want to part with them let me know.

The only downside to ordering from Navwar is the process of placing the order. The owner is a sweetheart and has always given me amazing turnaround times and great customer service. He's even sent handwritten notes with the orders on occasion. I will be sad when he quits and closes up shop.

I second the recommendation that you should get both GQ 1 and GQ 2.

BTW, GQ 3 isn't just an update to the GQ 1/2 system, it's a complete clean-sheet rewrite. The only things the early and later systems share are a ground scale, title and author. GQ 3 is available from ODGW.

I might add that Navwar stopped distributing to other shops years ago. So, not only is Navwar the sole publisher of GQ 1/2, it is also the sole seller. You might find old stock on some shop's shelves, but I doubt it.

Besides, Tony (Navwar) is quick to respond (I generally have 2 week or less turnarounds on orders. And that's to SoCal).
