To be fair they didn't show up on the game page for me. I think I managed to delete mine in time.

They didn't show up for me either but I subscribe to the game, because I apparently enjoy having my notifications flooded. At least it's a change of pace from the questions about how to add the expansions.

Now... do we want to bet when and if they will sell out?

I can't wait to witness the FOMO fury unleashed once more by the same folks who went bonkers about the possibility of missing out on the KSE from the 1st KS.

Not seeing why we'd want these. They appear to be alternate art versions of existing cards.

What am I missing?

They are not alternate art, they are alternate results

You add the cards in, and when a card with that number is drawn, you draw a random card with that number. This looks like it adds another result for praying, an alternate potion, a variant location (possibly with a new action), and 2 others.

Thanks for the heads up. Grabbed a set since I expect this will sell out pretty quick.

They were never intended to be available on the Geek. Tric-trac only.

You might be one of the few sane people left on the forums. They're for completionists, basically. If you search for "promo" in the forums you'll find plenty of rants from people outraged at the thought of not getting them. If the idea of not having 5 variant cards (out of 1000+) doesn't make you break into hives, you can save yourself 7$.

Well it's also about supporting BGG. It's not meant to be a compelling commercial offering, it's bung BGG some money and you get a few gaming bits and pieces for your trouble.

Naw, 100% FOMO. And OCD. Like, I got the cartographers notebook. I'm not gonna use it. It's gonna sit there next to the game until I die.

I'm doing slightly better because I only care about gameplay stuff, so I skipped the notebook and custom dice. But if it's an extra card... gimme! Supporting BGG doesn't really factor into the equation. Sorry, BGG! Gotta fill those 5 missing ID numbers before KS2 arrives.

Speaking of, I just got an email that my promo has been shipped. Of course it will take forever to get here, but the anticipation is real.

Got my order in the mail today. If anyone is curious about purchasing them, I did a brief write up of what the promo set entails.

Caaannn'tt Loookkkk..

I got my promos today too and did a quick look at each card so I would know when I actually got it in game, but not a long enough look to actual spoil anything.

I also glanced at the cards. One card seems pretty pointless (borderline alt-art). Two seem interesting but just variety for stuff you might not see often. One seems related to another card.

However I think the 666 card is probably the best part of the pack. I didn't look at the details but just having more variety there (which I have felt is lacking since getting the game) would make me more interested in that element of the game. After seeing the 3 other cards, I mostly just avoid those areas (
Spoiler (click to reveal)
graves
) so more interactions is definitely a plus. I hope they expand that element further in the new KS as well.
