Is the promo included in the kick starter deluxe edition, or is this something we need to seek out?

The promo was an extremely last minute thing. So much so, it was not able to be included in the Standard or Deluxe KS editions. I totally forgot about it as well.....I do believe they said it would be coming to the BGG store at some point tho....hopefully soon.

Yokohama KS update #17 wrote:

Some people have been asking about an announced Yokohama promo. The promo does exist and will be available through the BGG store, here's what it does...

Promo #1: Achievement reward tokens

Setup: Randomly choose 4 achievement reward tokens to place near the achievement cards. Return the rest to the box.

Rules: When completing all 3 achievements, collect one of the achievement rewards and keep it face up in front of you. You may count achievement reward flags toward obtaining foreign agents and scoring for country icons at the end of the game. You may use achievement reward free agents like any other foreign agent during your free action phase.

Promo #2: Free agent 5-power tokens

Setup: Mix these free agent tokens into the supply of 5-power tokens and setup the game as normal.

Rules: When you collect a free agent token, keep it face up in front of you. You may use it like any other foreign agent during your free action phase.

This promo was developed and finalized after Yokohama copies were being printed. At the time we couldn't include it with the game without causing unnecessary delays...


Pics or it didn't happen:

So last minute in fact that it was AFTER the game was done, funded, and already being printed.

Regarding the shared 'B' objective card that requires 5 Agents and/or 5-Power tokens...

Safe to assume that one these promo tokens would count as 1 of the 5 needed?

Is that right? You don't get the reward unless you get all 3 achievements. So you'd have to already get 5 foreign agents then you'd be rewarded a sixth foreign agent.

I believe the question was about the other part of the promo.

I think you're mixing 2 questions here...

Promo #1: Achievement Award tokens - If you have one of these, then you've, by definition, already completed the objective of having five 5-power/foreign agent tokens. In that case it doesn't matter if the reward agent or an agent obtained with the flag icon reward counts toward that achievement.

Promo #2: Free Agent 5-power Tokens - These are 5-power tokens, so they count toward the "five 5-power/free agent token" achievement. They are also free agents, so they count. Either way, they count

They do not count twice though! You need 5 separate tokens (any combination of 5-power tokens and free agent tokens).

Seth Jaffee's comment from April 27 leads me to believe it hasn't been printed yet. You haven't missed it.

They don't have them in the BGG store yet, but they will pretty soon I think.

Same as the TMG version, yes.

And if they weren't it's really not an issue since the tiles are laid out arbitrarily during setup.
