I'm yet ANOTHER individual who missed out on the pre-order so, therefore, missed out on the classified pack also. I read that the classified pack will only be available at conventions (something I hope will change soon).

I'm wondering, though - what all is included in the classified pack?

That's the entire contents of the promo pack. Three additional characters. You can really think of it as more of a promo than mini expansion

Haha! I try to operate in an economy of words.

I was hoping that they had a little mark on the player card to identify them, but they do not. I had shuffled mine together, but believe (based on images of the 9 base player boards), the 3 additional characters are:

Hans Gisevius
Abwehr: Diplomat & Abwehr Agent
Restricted and plot cards do not count towards raising your Suspicion during Gestapo Raids

Fabian von Schlabrendorff
Wehrmacht: Adjunct to Colonel Tresckow
You may roll one additional die when taking a CONSPIRE action

Hjalmar Schacht
Civilian: President, Reichsbank
As an action, you may give a card or item tile to another conspirator, regardless of location

I will probably add a small dot or tick in the lower right corner to identify these as the Classified cards.

Did you pre-order one particularly with the classified pack or just the regular one? I, too, pre-ordered my copy of Black Orchestra through CSI and may have just overlooked the extra three character cards.

As a data point, I just received my copy from CSI yesterday (as a normal order), and those cards are NOT in the box.

Here's to hoping they'll show up in the BGG store sometime. Though I get the feeling that the game doesn't lack anything by not having them.

I ordered it earlier in the week. The cards were in a small manila envelope in another cellophane envelope that was NOT attached to the box. To me, it was a compete surprise. In fact, if I had not swept my hand thru the foam peanuts, I probably would not have known it was there. I did not pre-order it from CSI.

Retailers who pre-ordered stock during the initial pre-order period got the Classified Pack, but they may have run out of those pre-ordered copies and be on to just regularly copies now... just a guess. Getting the Classified Pack from some retailers will be not so much if you pre-ordered as that they did. And it's up to them how they used those.

BGG didn't want any promos for the game, until it was proven a success, but hopefully we can do some BGG store promos at some point.

I was able to look through the box it came in, and I didn't find anything extra in the packing peanuts. Oh well.

Miniature market Pre-order just arrived here.
Contained the "Classified" cards as a separate envelope sent along with the game.

Is this the same Hjalmar Schacht who was saved from a well-deserved hanging after Nuremberg by falling through the cracks during the horsetrading in Nazi lives between the Soviets and the western Allies?

I don't fully agree with the characterizations in your statement, but yes, that's the same Schacht: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hjalmar_Schacht#Resistance_act...
