My local Boardgameshop told me I would get a promo when I order Lords of Waterdeep. Today I got the game, but I don't have a promo. Does anyone knows about a promo for Lords of Waterdeep?

This site needs a forum where we can put the faux offended so we can ignore them.

At DDXP, I was told that the card was going to B&M stores to give away with purchases of the game. No clue if that is still their ongoing stance, but I can confirm the card exists because I picked one up at DDXP.

Not sure why the OP didn't get his promo, though...

Hmmm. I did not get one yesterday when I picked up my copy. But, that does not mean I was not suppose to get one and just got screwed again by my FLGS. whistle

I seriously hope there is NOT a promo for this game. This is the first time I have heard any whisperings of any sort of promos for this game.

The depths of hatred I have for that marketing strategy is bottomless. I actually actively avoid games that do this.

I hope it is not true for this game because I was actually really interested in buying it.

Seriously WotC, give it a break already. Do NOT make promos for this nor Dungeon Command. Not every game you make has to have an additional 'chase' game attached to it.


I could not find Dungeon Command in the database. Is my Search Fu weak?

I don't think an entry has been created yet. It's WotC's new miniature game, which will come out later this year, and will also be compatible with the "Adventure System" D&D board games.

I started a thread for content speculation here: http://www.boardgamegeek.com/thread/775763/dungeon-command-c....

Regards.

I would be fine with this if Wizards of the Coast would join the many other companies that later let BGG put their promos up in the geekstore. But I don't think I've ever once seen any Wizards promo in there.

And then they become ridiculously hard to find for many of the fans that are trying to help support their games. And it's not like that money makes it's way to Wizards. No, it goes to advantageous ebay sellers.

There is one promo Intrigue card so far - Inevitable Betrayal. (Take two gold and one adventurer from another player, then give this card to them instead of discarding it).

My FLGS were getting some in; mine came with my review copy from Wizards.

Cheers,
Merric

I have a "Inevitable Betrayal" promo I'd be willing to trade for the Eclipse Supernova promo/expansion, plus I'd pay the BGG price you paid for it when it was available. Contact me if interested.

My FLGS is really good about getting promos in if they are owed, but they were not told that there was a retail promo available. They wondered if it was a convention exclusive promo card?

They are selling their copies of the game today (which I just bought one) but they do not have any promo cards.

I'm not a fan of "me too!" thread entries but the seller had someone agree to this deal before I was able to take advantage of it myself. I don't know a better way to make this offer in a place that the intended audience might see it, so if anyone else wants to trade my Eclipse Supernova for their LOW promo card, send me a Geekmail.

By the way, I went by my FLGS which does a reasonable amount of business in Magic cards and hosts some D&D games (in other words, they carry a fair amount of Wizards of the Coast stuff). The owner showed me the LOW boxes that they had just received direct from WOTC (his words...I don't know if they use a distributor or what) and he said they got no promo cards and he had not heard of any. So if WOTC is actually distributing these promo cards to FLGS, I don't know how they pick and choose, but not all of the brick and mortar places are getting them, even if they sell a lot of other WOTC stuff.

Also hoping this will be available in the BGG store. Seems like a fun card.

Score one for my FLGS! Picked up my order today, sleeved and taped to the order list was the Promo card cool . Hadn't even thought about asking them if they had it, just on the assumption no way they would have it.
