How readily available will the postcards be at Essen? Will they be extremely limited, so only the die-hards will pick them up?


There should be enough for everyone. I think we'll print 2500 copiesin German and 1000 in English

I have a friend who is attending, and its possible he could pick some up for me, if they are plentiful. But I don't want him queing excessively on my behalf, or running around for something that he's unlikely to be able to find.


They are meant to be postcards. So your friend can pick up one for himself, and then can get another one with stamps to send it to you.
So if you're smart and/or don't trust your friend's handwriting, give him an address sticker.

We will not give them away in bulk. I don't like to see them at some internet auction house, which had happened when we did the Verräter postcard expansion.

So: one per customer for free, every additional copy comes with stamps.
Postage to Germany 45 cents, to Europe 65 cents and to the world 1 Euro.

Quote:
Will they be released as part of any pay-for product after Essen?


No.

thanks for any insights here.

Nice!
So I can actually buy them, sell them with a hefty profit at E-bay
AND send them directly to the buyers without having to worry about shipping costs!
cool

Hanno,

If you want to avoid people getting a lot of portcards which will end up on ebay, offer the postcard as a free download after Essen.

That will only increase the price at E-bay - as sellers will be forced to set the minimum price higher to reflect the extra cost...

But you have to drive down to Germany to mail them, as we wo't put Danish stamps on them.
But, alas, I heard fuel is cheap in Denmark.

I'd like to add myself to the list. If you're going to Essen and can get me an English version of this, I'd happily give you some GG or send you $2 for postage through paypal. If you can get me an English copy of the x-deck I'd be even more in your debt. :)

My bad. After Reading this post i thought that getting a postcard at the booth in Essen would be no problem... *sniff* sadly that wasnt so. I had to work so i couldnt get to the Messe earlier than saturday. Not a single postcard was left Saturday at 10:10 am. cry

Someone out there who has a card left for a fellow geek? (i would pay for postage)
