Kickstarter of 2nd campaign is about to start and I am stoked. Have been checking KS to see whether it was on there already (even though I know full well that it cannot).

Gotta get my hands on this gem.

You'll have to wait another 6 hours though.
Get the promos from BGG store to trump the wait if it's too hard whistle

Not sure I'd want (need) them. I'll probably go all in, giving me plenty of replayability and I think I read that the cards themselves are simply alternates to existing cards?

That's exactly why I don't plan on buying them. If they were all new cards, absolutely, but in a "replace these 5 cards with these 5 cards" situation, it's just not worth it, in my opinion. I hope to be proven wrong.

It's not remplacement, it adds more variability. For instance, there is a new card 666, of which there are 3 in the game. There will now be 4 different you can draw from. This will really change certain actions.

My BGG promo cards came yesterday, and I was pleased. For 5 bucks I wasn't expecting anything earth-shattering or game-changing. It's just fun for me to collect what's available out there.

I was also really surprised how fast they got to me given shipping was only $2. I guess after the 2 year wait for the actual game, haha...

That isn't how this game works, and you aren't replacing anything. Plenty of cards have multiple versions to add replayability through the possible variation of what you run into each game. These cards add to that core aspect of the game.

They aren't necessary, but they are worth the price, which is typical of almost any promo.

Sad story: raced at the door when I saw the courier with a tiny parcel, but it was not my promos.

Guess they won't be here before tomorrow or the day after, meanwhile I'll keep counting down to the KS campaign. Just a little over 5 hours now!

Reminds me of the time when I raced to the post office for what I thought was Tanto Cuore when it was really my job telling me the organization changed. Like I didn't know that from working there -.-
And I still don't have my game :'(

We can be pretty sure that if there is such a card it won't be official, as Serious Poulp is not going to get that licence (which must be quite expensive) for such a limited use.

I would imagine that the second KS would be faster than the first, now that production kinks are ironed out and the game itself is ready to be printed.

Just to clarify as to what others have said, the replayability of the game is found from being told to randomly take a card number 56 (just an example). The game may come with 3 different cards numbered 56, so you never know exactly what you may encounter. Or find. This random aspect is important to longevity. These 5 cards have the SAME number as those in the deck, but they ARE different and get added to your master deck to add to the possibilities of what you may find.

About 4 hours now! And I don't think it'll take a year to get the new copies out but I'm not setting any expectations. I think more like 6 months, unless they wait until all the new expansions are developed and printed before shipping out 2nd Print core boxes.

But again, not getting my hopes up. Set your expected release date as far out as you can possibly bear, then add 5-6 months to that. Then you'll be happily surprised if it comes earlier.
