The Dice Tower KS had them. FLGSes also offered them as a pre-order incentive, I think.

I pre-ordered online but didn't get one. Not really fair since I don't have a FLGS within 100 miles

I don't understand. Why is there a first player figure as there's no first player marker included in the game, and no rules to go with such a thing even if there were? What purpose does it serve?

I think it's an extra bonus to persuade people to spend more at their local game store than through cheaper online retailers (it's Asmodee after all)... that being said, it might come out eventually at the BGG store or somewhere?

I understand their motives its just a unfair practice.

It's not a first player figure. That was a mistake in the OP. It's to replace the 2 VP "end-of-game" card you get for being the first person to complete your 5th contract and trigger the last round.

Ohhhhhh. That makes sense. Doesn't trigger my usual completionist sensibilities, though. Thank god.

First world gamer problems.

I know I hate it when I can't get a completely optional, no substantial game function piece.

Maybe that's irreverent. Others don't have access as well I'm sure.

No... it's not important... it would be important if it had any sort of impact on the gameplay or if it would add more content to the game...

A decorative piece isn't important for anyone that knows anything about games... it might be cool to have but it's certainly not important nor the end of the world

Thanks for your opinion. I already stated mine. Both are correct when dealing with subjective situations. but neither is fact.
