I'm thinking about buying this now on miniature market. Do the copies out there still have the 50th anniversary card pack inside? If not, is there a place to purchase the card pack separately? I check Gale Force Nines site but it didn't mention.

I think there was a sticker on the shrink wrap. You could always just try asking the store if it's there.

I'm pretty sure that the 50th cards are standard. They are included in the # of cards in the component list printed on the back of the box. Changing the print on boxes isn't something done lightly so unless they are going to different exploration cards in additional print runs, you should be fine.

I think they're also shrink wrapped with the deck. I'm pretty sure they're in every copy.

They are in every box from first print. All boxes, in this case, have yellow sticker on front saying "50th anniversary edition".

Their limited availability was a lie and a scam, like every fucking thing this company does

The question really is, "What are the odds that they managed to get a second print run of the base game produced and shipped amid the whole expansion fiasco?" I believe every copy of the game that's in circulation at the moment is a first-run copy, and should have the 50th anniversary cards included.

Man, you're really upset about this, aren't you? This thread doesn't even have anything to do with the problems with the expansions...

Zero. I doubt they'd have done a second print run by now even if everything was going fine. It's only been like 6 to 9 months since the first one, which isn't long at all, and they still seem to have plenty of stock. I wouldn't expect a second print run for a couple of years.

I'm 100% certain that Miniature Market will check this for you if you shoot them an email or call them. Their customer service has always been top-notch for me.

Just to say, my copy did not have the 50th Anniversary sticker on the shrink-wrap, but still had the 50th cards inside!

Excellent, thanks for the replies everyone. When I receive my copy I'll post a reply in this thread stating weather I got the bonus cards or not. Sounds like it'a given that they'll be included though, which is cool.

I received my copy and the 50th anniversary cards were included.

It does seem a little misleading that they are supposedly "limited edition". The Exploration deck is 45 cards and the 50th anniversary expansions is 15 cards total. The back of the box says in the contents, "includes 60 exploration cards." This isn't on a sticker but hard printed on the box art. I do not believe these are limited edition.

So, all in all it's a good thing, anyone who gets the game will get all the cards. I just don't like misdirection.

That does suck, but you are right. If someone new bought the game I'd want them to have those 50th anniversary cards. They are so great!

I agree. It's mildly annoying that they said they're a limited thing when it looks like they aren't, but not nearly as annoying as it would be if they actually were limited. The game would be a lot worse without those fifteen cards.

Am going back through old threads and this caught my eye - only to see where the "limited" status stands now, over a year and half later. So are newly printed copies still including the 50th Anniversary cards? (As of March 2018).

I don't know when my copy was printed, but it's been on the shelf at my FLGS for a while. It has the yellow sticker, and also the 50th cards, wrapped separately from the others.
