Does anyone know how many special play cards are in the box, and what the title of the web exclusive special play card is? I ordered my blood bowl and death zone from GW on the first pre-order day and both my order and packing slip say I should have an exclusive card. All I have is a badge.

Is the special play card in the deck with the originals, or am I missing the card?

I have 10 special play cards at the moment.

I collected mine from the shop and there was a card inserted in the GW Christmas catalog (I got two badges, though).

Edit: here's a pic of the card:

Thanks, I checked inside the catalogue and deathzone incase they put it in there...nothing. there are some fairly large gaps where they didn't put tape on the box edge. Considering its more expensive to buy from GW than the local guy, pretty crappy.

Same here. Pre-ordered from GW and no card exclusive here. I will get in touch with them.

I just got off the phone with GW customer service in the U.S. who gave me the "Oh no! We forgot to include the web exclusive card? Oopsie! Here's a pdf file of it instead".

When I called I said I received my copy of Blood Bowl in the mail today and something was missing. The customer service rep immediately said, "The web exclusive card?" I'm guessing they allowed too many to be added to the online cart and ran out so they are just faking that they sent them to everyone and poorly feigning surprise when contacted about it being missing.

Man that sucks - hopefully it's just a matter of a piss-poor attitude of a couple of individual customer reps.

If it were me, I'd try calling back again tomorrow morning in hopes of reaching someone different. If still the same spiel, I'd then go to social media (it's quite powerful for this sort of thing).

Tonight they told me that since they were limited cards the only way they would be able to send any replacement of missing cards would be if the warehouse found any that fell out of boxes. Everything in the box was well packed and the Deathzone book was wrapped in protective packing material. There was a Christmas Gift Guide also in the box. PLENTY of places in the box to safely place the card but the rep said the cards were placed loosely in the box.

I should have just bought from a local retailer for a 20% discount (or whatever they can give). I called GW this morning at opening, they said they'd look around for some, but it's likely they don't have any and that they over estimated how many they had, in which case they'll send me a pdf. But I know I was probably one of the earliest pre-orders in north america, and i said this to them, they said probably that for promos its not first come first served, more first packed for shipping first served.


My box had large un-taped areas with many gaps, but my guess they never put it in there.I opened the box to see if it was inside in the card deck...nope, maybe I'll see if i can get a full refund and just go down to the local guy and get the discount.

Got a response, all cards have been sent out, so I will not be receiving one.

There is a lesson here for me.

I just looked online and they do say it's "sold out" and "while supplies last." Whether or not this was there from the start I don't know.

While it's still a first world problem, I do feel bad for all those who didn't get what they were expecting.

Same boat here.

And the lesson for me is: order from non-GW store that offers a discount.

Well that sucks. Just to teach them, anyone can share the pdf file in the file section so we can have it?

player cards aren't part of the game usually. they only define vanilla players so they're not very useful in league play. I believe the cards are only available for the models in the base set to make it more user friendly for beginners

Apparently I got lucky. I just received my box today (another story), and the web card happened to be in the Christmas catalog (which I almost threw out by instinct) but decided to hold on for some reason.

Gw's AU branch is bailing out the US branch. Should have my replacement card in a few weeks.
