Anyone know how else these might become available aside from Gen Con?

BGG store perhaps?

This sucks. I was at Gen Con but just found out about this. Really wish this is made available for people that didn't snag a copy.

Alright alright, so there is a 6th color now. Ok, but what's the deal? I mean, don't get me wrong, the completionist in me would like to have it, too. But it does not add anything new to the gameplay. It just makes the game a bit longer and the scores can be higher now. Besides that, I really do not see the point of this promo pack. I wish they had spiced things up a bit (e.g. by adding a color with special powers one could activate by discarding these cards or one with a different scoring mechanism (e.g. based on how many cards with the same number of different suits you have)).
It feels like a missed opportunity

About the availability: I guess it will be available at the Spiel in Essen as well, maybe it will be (or even was) even a promo for the Spielbox magazine? It is about the right size for that.

I can't agree with this sentiment. Without playing it, I don't think you can state this with any certainty. Besides, the thread was about getting it, notg what it added.

Not sure how you can disagree. The description says it's just another color and that the rules for this color are the same as the other colors. It doesn't take a genius to understand what this does and does not add to the game.

I have to admit this might be the last game in my collection that I expected to see an expansion for. That being said, ordered.

I'm also thinking it will make it harder to get the cards/colors you want since the distribution is watered down. Not sure I want that frustration heightened... might work to bump the hand size up by 1.

Could always just replace one of the standard colors if you just want variety.

So, I just bought Lost Cities on Amazon.

Is this promo worth it? I imagine they must have tested out 4,5,6 expeditions while developing the game, and settled on 5. So I wonder if the game may be better without it.
