Hi everybody!

I've just received my copy of Boss Monster and I was wandering how many cards are supposed to be inside the game box.
I pledged the extra life level and, according to some posts on Kickstarter, this pledge level was supposed to have 189 cards (counting also the foils), instead I have only 188.
I tried to figure out which card is missing, but I'm not able to find any!
I have:
155 cards from the base game (counting also Anererak that is card number 0),
17 from the kickstarter exclusive (11 from The Player's Choice + 6 from The Power-Up),
16 foils (one for each boss).
So my total is 188 instead of 189.

Is there any other Extra Life backer that can tell me how many card he has?
Thank you all!

I also have 188, with the same breakdown as you. I think the 189 you read was a typo!

The rulebook gives counts for each deck, totalling 155; the fact that we have the same number of foil bosses as non-foil bosses suggests that a single missing card couldn't be a boss; this leaves just the power-up pack and the player's choice extras that could be wrong.

The power-up pack is stated in the reward to be 6 cards, so that's correct; the player's choice extras are scattered around the stretch goal rewards, but come to:
5 spells (60k)
4 'extra cards' (130k)
2 new epic heroes (160k)

for a total of 11 cards. So that's right too.


So if there's a card missing, it has to be a bridge scoring card or something. ;-)

Thank you for your quick answer! I'm glad to know that there are no missing cards!

Regarding the player's choice, the 11 extra cards should be:
-7 bosses (3 known + 4 "surprises")
-3 epic heroes (Pixel Lincoln, 2 Multi)
-1 spell (T.P.K.)
(I think the 5 additional spells unlocked at 60k are included in the number reported in the rulebook, since they are not a Kickstarter exclusive).
The Power-up pack, as you said, should contain the other 6 cards (4 rooms, 1 spell and another epic hero) for a total of 188.

Thank you again!!

Z.

My card set seems slightly different in content.
I have 155 Base Game cards (shrink wrapped in 3 packs).
16 Foil cards (shrink wrapped).
All ok so far.
The box then includes two more packs. One Shrink wrapped, the other bagged.

The shrink wrapped set includes 11 cards, made up of:
7 Boss cards; Hellcow, Brothers Wise, Kirax, Kaw'nee, Scythe, Jarin, Elicon
4 Epic Hero cards; Pixel Lincoln, Monster Hunter, Trap Master, Demigod

The bagged set includes 6 cards, made up of:
4 Room Deck cards; Ghoulyard, Shark Tank, Bone Crank, Trash Compactor
2 Spell Deck cards; Agent Of Evil, T.P.K.

Was TPK and one epic hero from these sets mixed up somehow?

It could be that I mixed up the T.P.K. spell with the Demigod epic hero while I was checking (I based my list on the Kickstarter page of Boss Monster), but the cards you list are the same: 188 cards altogether (confirmed also by the Brotherwise Games).
