ICv2 posted an article detailing a couple cool promos for Dead of Winter: a Felicia Day card and "Dead of Winter: Table Top Edition".

If anyone from PHG is reading this thread, can you comment on the special edition of the game?


UPDATED: We have an official answer.

This is purely speculation, but it looks like it may just be an alternate box art cover. The survivors on the cover almost all appear to be the survivors that appeared in the DoW episode of TableTop, plus Felicia Day. Maybe it also includes the Felicia Day promo?

Again, purely speculation.

I'd second that as a guess. Include Felicia Day survivor, maybe others, maybe the original Kodiak Colby. It won't be any more than that as to make big changes would be a significant amount of time.

Seeing how they played it, I wonder if it comes with a mis-printed rulebook....

How can we get a Felicia promo without actually buying this edition?

2 Felicias are separately included with the Tabletop Day promo pack.

Any FLGS running a TableTop day event will have them to give out. Hope that helps

Or wait for it to hit the BGG store. Tabletop Day promos have historically made it here.
The Wil Wheaton 7 Wonders promo is up there for only $2.50.

I'm hoping for this. I missed out on the Tokaido one, which is now on ebay for $120. Hoping to get the DoW one.

I already got DOW as a pre-order way back and waited a loooong time. But we love it, and I would really like this promo. Please put it in the BGG store. What are the chances the card will go to the store owners favorite guy? How did one person sell 8 Felicia Tokaido cards on ebay last year?

As a side note, if Felicia makes it to the BGG store, I'd love to see Colby there as well.

i'm with you; I ordered (and waited) long long ago, and have no access to these promos!

Last year no FLGS in my area hosted a Tabletop event. I'd love to be able to get the Felicia promo stuff.

I got Kolby with my pre-order which came directly from Plaid Hat, but +1 for him also going to the BGG store for those who don't have it.

Edit: JIM - even if you did have a FLGS, there are only 2 cards in the smaller promo package. That means only 2 people get one. Chances are slim to none, unless you are FLGS's favorite person, you would get one of those 2.

Yeah, but then there would at least be a chance.

From what I remember, the promo kits are expensive for what's in them. I would imagine anything Tabletop related will be produced in greater quantity, though... but I could be wrong. Not looking forward to trying to chase this one down, but I don't know if PHGames has ever released a promo that you couldn't eventually get from them later?

$250 for a base kit and *gasp* $600 for the premium kit.

What isn't clear to me is why the store has to pay at all. Aren't these promos for the games? The game companies should be paying. Seems strange.

The promo kits includes at least $250.00 MSRP worth of product, and the premium kit includes at least $600.00 MSRP worth of product. Not sure how much they actually charge for the kits, but don't think it's free.

There are some actual games in there (eg: the promo kit contains 1 Reverse Charades Geek & Sundry edition and 1 Dead Man's Draw TableTop Day edition).

My FLGS said they had to pay $250 for the $250 kit. So I'm guessing it's $600 for the $600 kit.
