For anyone who missed the Dice Tower's KS campaign this past season, there are some remaining DoW promos (six crossroads cards that add a unique flavor to this great game).



Here's the link at CSI. I don't how much stock they have. These cards are certainly not a requirement, and Tom Vasel has already expressed his well-reasoned position on promos in general.

About $20 USD for a few promos (shipping included to Canada)... I don't think I like Dead of Winter thaaat much.

In all fairness to Tom Vasel, I believe he gave the remaining promos to CSI (I presume he frequents that store) to clear out his own stock. What CSI charges for shipping is not up to him. I wish Tom had distributed them through his own website, because the money would go to help support the DT (definitely a worthy cause IMHO).

Regardless, these cards just add flavor to the game and you wouldn't be missing anything (except your money if paid for them).

CSI hosts the Dice Tower podcasts. It's a formal arrangement.

Awesome, thanks!

I'm going to pick a set up and have them hold it until I place my next order.

Yeah, he doesn't control CSIs shipping policies, for sure, but he made the desition to sell them through CSI instead of himself, and he is getting his cut on that money (not that there's anything wrong with that). He didn't "give" them, he put them up for sale via CSI.

Having said that, CSI is a great store, and I'm pretty certain these cards won't add much shipping cost to any purchase you make with them, so if you're a regular or semi-regular buyer with them, and you like DoW, it's not that bad of a purchase, and you are helping the Dice Tower, wich is what these promos were made for.

Not trying to complain about Tom or CSI, just the Canadian Dollar and shipping rates really.

Yeah, I would be probably normally pick these up, but due to the dollar $20 USD is getting close to $30 CAD which sucks for 6 cards.

Ya, the exchange rates are killing us right now. Game prices have been going up at an alarming rate.
Some of the shipping rates to Canada are insane. I wanted to order the Titan's Grave books from Green Ronin and they wanted $35US to ship two books to Canada! That doubles the cost before factoring in the exchange rate!

Nasty!

Anybody has these cards? Are they quite innovative/interesting? Not all Dice Tower in-jokes I hope...

I have them, they put a different spin on the crossroads. Nothing game changing but good for a laugh.
