Sadly not, it would seem.

I asked Travis, from Indie Boards and Cards, about the future availability of The Resistance: Avalon Promos (via GeekMail), as I also missed out when they were available through the BGG store. He replied that "there are no current plans to reprint/restock these."

Well it looks like there are at least 3 of us that would buy them. Let's see if that incites them to change their plans

Also looking for the promos.

They should reprint them at $20, they'd still get lots of takers.

I'm late to the party as well. I am going to proxy a set as stated above but will be watching for an official set.

What's it gone for on eBay? I'm sitting on my copy, which I have no interest in. But I'm super lazy, so haven't attempted to sell it.

Ping me then, if you decide to sell them and doesn't mind shipping them to MALAYSIA / SINGAPORE.

I'll proxy for now, but I would buy this so hard if it got reprinted.

Honestly, this type of thing makes me NOT want to buy a game in the first place. Why would I pay good money for an incomplete game? Exclusive "never get them again" promos just creates an artificial elitism.

Even when I have a promo set, it just makes me paranoid of playing with them -- because if they get damaged or lost I can't replace them. Promo expansions are short term thinking and harm the hobby in the long run, I think. At minimum do what the Gale Force Nine folks (Firefly, Spartacus) do: wait a year or so and then release the promo stuff for sale to anyone. Then the "promo" advantage becomes that you can get it all before other people, but not forever....

I most certainly would buy this with how popular social deduction games are in my gaming group.

Ya, so I emailed Travis about the cards, and he said:

"I do not have anymore of those cards, but subscribing to our newsletter at www.indieboardsandcards.com will ensure that you are informed if they are re-released."

You know what sucks the worst about not having those cards? The fact that Lancelot shows up on the box and is not actually included in the game.

Anywayz, I love this game and have started so many groups, it would be nice to have the Lancelot cards to really make the game more interesting...

Why can't your proxy the cards again?

Because how do you make those cards the same way as the others so people won't know you're a Lancelot when you pick it? Look for the cheaply made cards and you'll know.

BTW, can anyone make some copied version cards in decent quality and let us know and see if we can get em?

Opaque sleeves on all the cards would fix that ... however it's just not the same. I can't fully explain it and I recognize that it isn't completely rational but I won't be happy unless I have the official cards!
