In recent years, board game promos have become much more available than ever before, especially with the help of the BGG Store. This is great - I absolutely love getting these promos. There is, however, no "Promo" category when tracking collections here on BGG and I'd like to suggest that one be added.

Currently, when promos are added to a collection, they are added as expansions, which they certainly are. However, there a big difference between Rattus: Jester and Rattus: Africanus, or Dominion: Intrigue and the Stash promo, or even Agricola: Farmers of the Moor and Agricola: Through the Seasons. I'd love to be able to have a way to differentiate between full expansions and simple promos in my collection.

I checked today and found I own 22 such promos and I just ordered 3 more. I want to keep track of these on BGG but, since they fit easily into the original game box, I'd also like it if they did not count toward the total games in my collection. I know some people do want them to count, so giving a user the option of categorizing an expansion as a promo that does not add to the total game count would be ideal.

Just my thoughts. Perhaps it's been suggested before but has just gone nowhere. Thought I'd throw it out there.

Re: Suggestion: New Board Game Category: Promo
I also toyed with the idea of suggesting a separate category - a single card can hardly called an expansion. meeple

Here's one vote for your motion: thumbsup
