I have a whole bunch of dead AA batteries in my drawer. You wanna take them off my hands? They're free of charge

Tons of promo cards. Are they actually free when they come through Kickstarter though?

A friend gave me some free promo cards for Seasons and I love them. I have played some and they're really interesting.

Free cards for Magic: the Gathering when I played in tournaments too. Useful ,and the foil was pretty. The magpie in me was happy. Shiny!

DCI used to send you a stack of cards with the number of cards depending on how many sanctioned events you took part in. I used to love it. Then they stopped and I stopped drafting. Boo!

I just wondered, what free stuff have you had for games that you liked? A promo card? Did you buy a game and get a nice signature on it?


TableTop magazine were giving away the landmark tiles for Quadropolis to the first 50 people who bought their mag each day at the UK Games Expo. My GF was really eager for these so we charged directly to their stand to get them (we must have bought the second copy at the show!).

Once we got them my girlfriend visibly deflated. She'd got so worked up about getting them she had no idea what to do next at the Expo!

I went to a Tabletop Day event last year, and the demo guy was giving out the mini demo version of Dobble. That was really nice. And I got some cool Evolution loot that lead to this confused thread. Got some Munchkin cards and a bookmark too, but they're just gathering dust right now.

Not gaming related, but a t-shirt company I buy from, occasionally sneaks mini packs of Haribo into the packaging when they send stuff out

I buy most of my games used, so the "free stuff" tends to be things like expansions, plano boxes or upgraded components from the previous owner.

I don't think I've ever gotten anything free, even from the BGG store

Free usually costs too much.

I'm positive you could cell them to someone.

Yeah, I've heard "All Right Now" about a million times. I'm pretty sick of them too.

Being pedantic here - you forgot the air quotes around girlfriend - I believe it should read "girlfriend."

I know I hate having my grammar corrected too, but I have bad CDO and had to call you on that one.
