Okay, so a number of weeks ago, I saw the announcemnet for the new Dominion promo cards. "What's this? Only five bucks? I HAVE to have them!" So I dutifully ordered my set and waited.

Today, they arrived. Hooray! The sad part?

I don't even own the game.

I mean I have played friends' copies and enjoyed it so much that I am considering getting a copy soon. There's even one still sitting on the shelf of my friendly local gaming store.

But I have to wonder at my level of preorder madness, when my expansion arrives before I even own the game.

(Please tell me I am not the only one..)

You're not alone.

I ordered TWO.

In a year's time, they'll be nice trade-bait.

I'm initiating a class action lawsuit against J.L. Robert. Anyone who has been damaged by his ordering two Dominion promos please post here.

Can't believe you said that. There was a limit of ONE per person. Now they will ban you from BGG!!!


The limit is one PER ORDER. I read the fine print. cool

Heck, I've been tempted to order them, and no only do I not own the game - I've never even played it! I'm doing all I can to fight the urge to place an order.

You're not the only one. I ordered with the idea of giving to a friend who loves Dominion, but of course he bought his own. They arrived last week and were getting lonely, so I ordered Dominion yesterday

Yup, I've ordered the promo cards, and I don't own the game. My FLGS has been sold out as well, and I am trying to wait until it restocks (I try to split my purchases between online and my FLGS).

I did it as well.

However, my G/F told me to order Dominion about 2 weeks ago, and that did arrive first. At the time, I wasn't sure we'd ever order it though...

You can still order it. A greedy person wouldn't share.

Not sad at all -- wise, in fact! I bought the promos before the game, though my promos haven't arrived yet and I am now the owner of a shiny new copy of Dominion.

Cementing my opinion is the fact that I just got hooked on Formula De -- I went online to see about buying some of the expansion tracks, only to recoil in horror from prices in the hundred-dollar range. While I doubt Dominion promos will ever command such prices, better just to get them now and save yourself a lot of trouble down the road when you're addicted to the game and just have to have every card ever printed.

(and it'll happen)

That's sad, but still doesn't seem to top me buying 3 sets of animeeples when I had no intention and still have no intention of ever owning Agricola The game was already out then, but that doesn't seem to make a difference. Amazing how the drive to save on shipping kicks in when you really only "needed" one copy. Granted, I've redeemed myself somewhat. I've managed to sell one of them, and another will be included as part of payment for a game I'm getting for cheap (but the sell price for the animpeeples here is lower). Then, I'll just hold on to the last bag for myself.
