Will the promos (mini-expansion) offered at Essen (if preordered) be available later through the BGG store or other channels?

Thanks!

I'm guessing you are referring to if you pre ordered from the website? The other copies sold at the show shouldn't have them unfortunately.

Yeah, sorry, I meant the promos that come with the preorders. Would like to get a response on whether it is absolutely necessary that I plonk down 70 euroes now for the terrain cards D:

Hi --

I'm the designer, not the publisher, so this is just an educated assumption. Based on GenCon I would say that if you buy a copy at GenCon, they will probably have the promo cards. BUT, if it's like GenCon, supply is not guaranteed for those who don't pre-order.

I have no clue how many they are bringing to the show.

All promos offered as a special offer during our pre-orders are later available to separate buy from our web store UNLESS specifically stated that this is one time limited promo (it was, for example a case with wooden box for Legacy we released in 2013).

Some of these promos are later available through BGG store as well.

Thank you for your reply sir! It was very helpful in helping me decide... esp with my limited luggage space. I still look forward to trying it out! Thanks for letting the rest of the non-essen geeks get a fair chance at this

are there pics of these promos? I haven't seen them and I would be interested to see what they were before I decide whether to seek them out or not

I think someone uploaded them to BGG, and you can see them on Portal's page. It's 8 objective cards, with a little sheet that tells you the rules.

Wouldn't mind preordering this for essen. But pickup only allowed on Thursday and Friday make that impossible for me.
