I thought buying the game through brick and mortar stores was the only way to receive the Starfire promo card. I purchased my copy at a game store and didn't receive one though. I'm pretty upset because the closest store is 50 minutes away, so imagine my surprise after a 50 minute drive to be told that I won't receive a promo card!!

Can anything be done about this?

I didn't get mine either. I was disappointed, but the shop owner said there was some sort of shipping problem and it should arrive eventually.

Mentioned in another thread was the fact that 1000 promo cards were lost in shipping. Also, we printed the same number of promos as last time, but then lots of late preorders came in, so we couldn't cover all of the preorders. They are being reprinted and will get sent to the stores.

Only Brick and Mortar stores will get the promos.

Thanks,

What constitutes a "Brick and Mortar" store. From my understanding that was a physical gaming store. Is this correct, because that is where I purchased my copy.

Yes, a physical store. We will get the cards out to your store when they arrive from the printer.

Will Cryptozoic allow their promo cards for both DC deck builders to be sold at the BGG Store?

I got my first DC game and loved it but I did not get in when it first came out so I missed the Martian Manhunter and would love a chance to get one.
The Faust promo is also very hard to get and would be a great promo for the BGG Store.

About those 1000 cards, I don't want to point fingers, ESPECIALLY since I have no evidence, but I couldn't help noticing this eBay auction.

They have sold 80 Felix Faust promos so far over multiple listings and it indicates they have more than 10 available. Does Alliance normally give retailers over 100 copies of a promo?

Sounds good! The store I purchased my copy from is
Lost World of Wonders, 6913 W Oklahoma Ave, Milwaukee, WI 53219

How will I know if and when they will receive them?

Not sure when they will arrive.
When they do, I'm sure it will get mentioned on the forums.

A store I went to today in Virginia said they only got promos in with some of their pre-orders. I thought the East didn't get any promos?

I hope they do get some more in soon so I can pick this baby up.
