I acquired this and the expansion in Essen Spiel 2016. Since they had run out of promos, they gave me a code that I had to redeem later so that they would send me the card. I did so in one of the days of the fair.
About a month ago I got the shipping notice saying that my card had been sent. However, a month later the card has not arrived.

Has anyone received it? Did anyone have the same problem as me?

I sent an email to Repos Productions, but I haven't received any response.

What was the Essen promo, anyway? The Statue of Liberty card?

That was the 2015 promo. This year's promo was indeed the Statue of Liberty.

Yup. I think mine was the same date.
Seems strange that a single card (meaning it fits in an envelope) would take so long.
Let's see what happens

They've posted on Facebook that they're processing them. They also commented (in French) that they're behind in processing e-mails but they'll try to answer as quickly as possible.

I guess that the "spoiler" email was sent way ahead of the actual sending, to calm down the moods.

I prefer to think that was a mistake. Otherwise, it's simply dishonest.

I'm not accusing anyone of bad intentions, but the coincidence was strong: it was sent right after I've posted first post asking about the promo here.

Either way, it's a long wait.

WTF?!?

So on Monday I wrote a mail asking for the status of the that card they'd announced to send out more than a month ago, replying to the very mail they'd sent in early November. Today I received an answer, thanking for my email and suggesting that if I had a missing part I should contact their US distributor, Asmodee North America.

Sorry, but this is riduculous.

Edit: Of course they'd sent that email in early November, not early October...

By the way, I'd meant to post this...

From their reply on December 13th:

Quote:
Unfortunately, it is perfectly normal that you haven't received it already. We received the cards only last week from the manufacturer. We send them out immediately and you will probably receive it in the next few days.

Thank you for your understanding and patience

have a great day

Let's see if they the cards will arrive in time for Christmas...
