If you are going to Gencon, you can get the game a month before everyone else.
Also, if you play the 45 minute demo you can get 1 promo card. Additionally, if you buy the game, you get 3 more exclusive cards.

I sincerely hope that these promos are "b-side". If the Sword of Gryffindor or the Elder Wand are Gencon only promos I will riot....

If anyone is going to GenCon and they live in the Dallas area please message me. I need someone to purchase a copy for me and I am willing to pay for their services.

I dislike convention promos as much as Kickstarter only promos unless available at a later date to the public

At least with Kickstarter you're putting money up front months in advance...so I'm ok with KS promos. I'm even ok with devs selling KS promos at conventions.

But convention promos suck. Not everybody has those kinds of funds and/or vacation time. If the promos do make it to the Geek Store, then great. If they don't, then that's really unfortunate.

Hey Everyone,

Ross from USAopoly here.

The promo cards that are going to be available at Gen Con are not Gen Con exclusive.

We are glad that we can have some fun promo cards available at the launch of the game.

See you at the show!

I'm not nearly as interested in things like promo cards, as I am interested in finding out if this game is actually a lot more fun than what it appears. Play the game you genconers, and tell us about it!

i was told they were sold out like pre-10 AM this morning which means retailers went and bought them before the public got a chance to. Really lame.

Very important gamer. They pay like 600 dollars for tickets one of the perks is entering the dealer hall before they open.

They had 50 copies each day. Their booth was very near the entrance to the exhibit hall, so each morning there was a mad rush to their booth and a huge line formed quickly. I don't think they were expecting this much interest, perhaps? It was pretty crazy.

They admitted to being overwhelmed and underprepared. They've never done a gamer game with a license with this kind of fandom before. They were, however, very gracious and professional in their handling of the chaos. I used to be a Wizards of the Coast Corporate Representative, and I gave them some operational tips for Sunday morning, which they used. They said it was night and day, and were very appreciative. I give them very high marks for accepting qualified input and a willingness to grow. It was evident in their day-to-day adjustments at the con as well as the stellar product that is this HP game. They had enormous respect for the property and showed a delightful amount of attention to detail. These folks can't help but become a major player on the game scene with this kind of company culture.
