Will the promo cards be available on BGG? I purchased the game on preorder with pickup at gencon but only received 1 promo card and would like to be able to get the other one as well.

Yeah I'll print more during the second print run.

Sorry I'm sure what happened wasn't intentional.

The promo was just for Gencon. At some point I was operating under the belief that I would need help getting people to the booth.

I will be printing more in the next print run. The promos were designed after we were done designing the game and printed recently with a POD. The ones from the factory will look closer.

I probably won't do a promo again, I didn't realize how the community would respond.

FTFY. Some of us are happy to get what we were promised and don't feel we're automatically entitled to more 'just because'.

Thank you for your efforts. Looking forward to the game and blowing people's minds with it. ("What do you mean you play as THE CAVE?")

Promos irritate me when I can't get them. If there is a convention promo, it leaves out a lot of players. If the covnention promo then winds up on the BGG store, everything is roses. I think most people feel that way.

However, you're getting grief cuz the new buyers at the con got two extra cards that the KS backers didn't get even though the KS backers didn't even get their game yet. I would probably join in that grief normally but you've already said they WILL be available in the future at the BGG store, so the bigger probem is making the cards the same size (aka learn the lesson to never get cards for the same game made at two different places)

Which will be easy to pull off during the reprint.

I had intended to ship before Gencon but there was that issue where the depot pulled most of the boxes back.

Must've gone through them fast, picked up my copy of Vast on Saturday and didn't have any promos unless they were in the box

Yep sorry.

Even our best prediction put us at 300 copies sold and we had 500 when we started.

Wow... well congrats! My daughter and I were happy just to get a copy, we were told as soon as we showed up late Friday night that Vast was the one to get, and we went there straight after opening day Saturday.

No worries on the promos--I am glad to see your hard work on this title is paying off in popularity!

It was great to pickup the promos at Gen Con. I did notice on mine that the purple backing of the promo cards is a slightly different shade than the purple backing of the other treasure cards, making it possible to discern whether the next treasure card is one of the promos or not. Perhaps the same issue won't be present on the reprint. Still glad to have them, so thank you for the bonus at Gen Con!
