Will the Promo card be available in Essen 2016, without buying the whole game?
I want to pre-order the game to get it faster, but I'd like to get the promo card if possible and friends of mine will visit Essen.

There is a promo card? I bought the game at GenCon and did not get one.

There is a Terraforming Mars: Launch Kit Promo that will support retail stores.

Here is Stephen's comment about availability of the promo:

Quote:
This will not be included with website preorders, sorry.

This promo is for FLGS stores who are bringing in the game, and doing so in quantity 2 weeks before the worldwide launch of the game.

We hope to have these promos available after this launch, but that would be months after.

Thanks,

I was under the impression (from one of the threads here) that besides the Launch kit the card will also be available to people who buy the game in GenCon and/or Essen.

I guess I was wrong. (Or I'm right but its just in Essen...)

This makes me want to cancel my website pre-order and take my chances with my local store.

To my knowledge, the FLGS will get 6 copies of the game and 30 promos. So it is not impossible for them to sell the single cards.

There are more than 200 cards in the game. Having one more or less doesn't seem terribly relevant.

Obviously, you do what you feel is best for you but this is an excellent game, one that might even be exceptional. Why risk not getting it?

I agree, it's very irritating. I took a leap and pre-ordered as well. Thanks?

*IF* the FLGS orders the "Terraforming Mars - Early Launch Kit" (stock# SG-6005P], which Street Dates on Sept. 14, they get:
- 5 copies of TM for sale
- 1 copy of TM for demo (not for sale)
- 30 promo cards

NOTE: The FLGS has has to SPECIFICALLY ORDER the above Stock#, or they will not bet the above. If they order the worldwide Street Date item, stock# SG-6005, which Street Dates on Sept. 28, they order ONE UNIT at a time, and there are no promo cards. You need to ASK YOUR RETAILER to order the early launch kit -- we are doing this for THEM!

Finally, this is the only way to get the promo cards prior to Essen. At Essen, we will have the ability to give a promo card with each unit purchased. THEN, post-Essen, we will have some available on our website most likely, if we have supply.


Thanks,
