Would it be possible to separate promos from regular expansions in the Games page? For example, when I look at the Mage Wars Arena game page, there's a huge list of expansions, most of which are promos. People looking for regularly-marketed expansions may get overwhelmed by this list; it would be nice to have promos listed separately.

The main problem is that the boundary is so fuzzy. Promos are expansions (unless they're an accessory), and it's not always clear what expansions are meant as promotions vs. just plain old expansions.

I have an idea how to deal with this - but it might be a while before we around to adding it.

Please, keep us slightly insane collectors in mind, who always wants to quickly check out if everything available is already in our greedy hands possession!
