I just met with the fine fellows from IELLO at GenCon today, and they confirmed the promos will be here soon (and will likely coincide with the release of the base game).

I just got an email from IELLO that the cards will be arriving today, so my guess is that Kristine will have them up on Monday.

Good, this might mean that the base game isn't far behind. Would be wonderful to see my Quarriors and King Of Tokyo both come in stock at the same time at Coolstuffinc.

The cards arrived today! It will likely be at least another week, however, until they make it into the store since they didn't arrive pre-packaged into sets of 11. So, Kristine's family will have to have a collating party before they can be offered up.

Yeah, I have a big order at CSI just waiting on King of Tokyo, too. Here's hoping it's soon!

Re: When will the promo cards be available in the geek store?
We have been playing "King of Toyko" since I got it (a few weeks before GenCon) and I can tell you that the cards make a good game even better. Even better news was that they were releasing 11 promo cards and now the time is almost here and I can not wait.

If you have yet to play "King of Toyko", it is a blast. These 11 cards will only add to the fun so if you are picking up a copy (or already have a copy) then this is a MUST buy.

Game on;

I have a feeling I will have the promo cards way before the full game. I hope the game will end up in Hungary eventually.

You and me both! The sad part is it's holding up my whole pre-order from Coolstuffinc!

For whatever it's worth, I just visited MiniatureMarket (where I ordered the game from) and my order seems to have shipped. So, there you go.

Nothing for me yet. I checked MM website and it does still say "pre-order", but they may of not updated it yet. I don't imagine they would have shipped your order without it though. I sure hope to get updated soon!

Don't get your hopes up. I preordered from miniaturemarket and my order said shipped as soon as it was placed. So, I don't think that means anything.

Just wondering if these had already been posted and sold out, or if they had yet to be posted. Or perhaps I am just blind and missing them... excited about this game!

You have not missed them as they have not yet been posted. Keep your eyes open as they said they have recieved them and are sorting them out (as they did not come seperated).

Unfortunately, we had to postpone the release of this promo... until Monday, August 22nd, when I've been told they will be released along with 3 other super cool promos!

As it has been stated this is a 11 card set. Not some 1-3 card promo set you can take or leave, this is 11 new cards you are able to add into your deck and use right away.

After a many of plays of "King of Tokyo" I can tell you that the cards really add to the game so 11 new cards are a for sure "Must Buy" if you are going to pick up "King of Tokyo" or already have it (Hail to the king, baby!).
