Yog-Sothoth knows the gate. Yog-Sothoth is the gate. Yog-Sothoth is the key and guardian of the gate. Past, present, future, all are one in Yog-Sothoth. He knows where the Old Ones broke through of old, and where They shall break through again.

Ok I just saw an eBay listing for the Essen promo cards. The bid was up to $41.00 and still accepting! Seriously? Are these 12 cards really sought that much?

I don't care too much for the special buildings and don't find myself using them very often (but I haven't played many times and I'm probably not very good). That said, I think this hobby draws collectors, and I know it would bother me if I didn't already have those 12 cards, even though I probably wouldn't use them. So the bids don't surprise me at all, and I bear no ill will towards either the seller or bidders.

I just printed up my own copies. One of the benfits of using card sleeves is that it makes it easy to add your own material.

I got a online gift certificate worth $50 in a Math Trade for the full set. I was rather happy.

and yet Lookout Games is still offering these for a donation to their African farmers charity. Mine just arrived in the mail today - 3 of us donated together so that less would be spent in shipping costs, and thus more of our money would go to the charity.

I saw that you could donate on the Look Out games web-site (via a translation program). However, I wasn't able to determine the suggested donation amount. Is there any guideline to an appropriate donation?

Thanks!

That thread has Hanno saying donate what you think is appropriate. I asked what shipping costs would be, and Hanno told me

Hanno wrote:
Postage: Letter AIR MAIL (up to 100g):To the EU € 2, to the world € 4


With that in mind, we split the approx US$6 between the three of us to cover shipping/paypal costs, and then donated what we felt was appropriate.
