Hi! I've noticed that there's a page on bgg for the TV promo set for "This war of mine: The board game". The info there is the following:

Designer Michał Oracz, Jakub Wiśniewski
Artist Paweł Niziołek, Michał Oracz
Publisher Awaken Realms

On an update on the kickstarter page they said: "(...)those cards were created by Galakta and we didn't have any impact on what they were doing with them."

I'm confused...

The full quote is:

Quote:
The retail producer and distributor of the game, Galakta, asked us to create some promo material for Essen Spiel for them. We have created those TV cards, as a promotional material - it is not essential to the game. It is just a small promo. It has a little bit of story to it and a small twist, that we will not spoil for you.

Anyway, those cards were created by Galakta and we didn't have any impact on what they were doing with them.


So they were created by the team behind the boardgame, but they were created for Galakta, and, I assume, they are owned by Galakta in some way.

I just wish publishers would stop doing stuff like this, trying to own parts of games to lock the games to their own publishing house. It just affects us customers negatively, having a myriad of slightly different games being published under the same name but by different companies in different countries. This case seems to be pretty minor, but it's still just bad yuk

Y'all cut off right before they mention that they'll reach out and see if they can get them included in the backer boxes.

Yeah, I did that intentionally, because that part wasn't relevant to the OP's confusion, as I interpreted it.

I didn't do it to make the creator look bad or anything, I just didn't want to quote anything that didn't pertain specifically to the matter of ownership of the promo.

I was so used to the great deal of concern that people had in regards to this new 'promo' item not being available to backers, I assumed this was the OPs main question (which, I see it was not). That's why I added the rest...oops

Hello!

TV Sets are going to be available at some of the upcoming conventions and in various contests. They were first introduced at Spiel 2016 but there are plans for them to be available more broadly.

We shared a note on our Facebook fan page describing the promo itself and prompting some ways to get it in the near future. The first chance will be a few days from now! Also, the fan page will be the best place to ask us any questions that you may have regarding the retail version of the game.

Best regards!
Galakta

I don't ask my gaming-related questions on Facebook as a matter of principle, so I hope you will see and reply to this here.

Will the TV-promo be available at Essen this year?

Most probably - yes! This way or another - be sure to visit Ares Games booth at Gencon - they will have the game and will manage the promos.

We can't say for sure at this time, but certainly it's not impossible.

Any chance for versions in other languages? Like German, French, ...

Got an English one in Essen last year, but as my Game will be a German one a matching TV set would be ideal.

From what I've been told, the only way to get this at Gencon is to buy the game. So for us backers... Once again we're left out.

I 100% agree. And AR claims people wanted this STUPID promo card of the kids that isn't even playable over these TV promo cards. That has to be BS. I don't know any one that would want an Art promo card over usable in-game promo cards.

I swear over the same thing when I opened the SG box. I would have been more interested on the mini expansion than this particular art card. I don't like it.
Ok yeah, we got all the cool stuff included in our pledges — I'm grateful for that! — but it would be reasonable to be able to even buy the TV cards for a few coins from somewhere on the web.
