It doesn't say they are included, so it's safe to assume they aren't included.

Lame, so now the price jumped up to 10 euro because of that? At 5 euro with baggies it was more easy to justify it. 7.5 USD would had been about the same.

Yet another rip-off from Matagot then. Could just had included the tile from the beginning, bags or no bags doesn't matter much but if it's ...

*checked exchange rates*

... oh well, 7.5 usd vs 13.31? Bigger than I thought. My currency is SEK anyhow. 50 SEK for a tile and a card? Totally not worth it. 89 sek with bags? More acceptable as far as "you get a bunch of stuff!" but it's still just two game pieces...

So freaking stupid with this expansion promo shit. And with yet another expansion coming. Hate it as much as Rio Grande Games Race for the galaxy.


I don't see any reason to not complain.



(If they had included the stupid tile and card it wouldn't had added 50 SEK to the price of the expansion and if they had included it all they could probably had raised the price of the expansion by 50 SEK if they wanted to instead of charging 89 SEK for it.)


French ..


Edit: Seems like the BGG store one was Asmodee and you could always skip manticore card which you can probably live without. Now I don't know what to do. Again. Would had been easier if the offers was for the same items and for 5 euro shipped from EU and 7.5 usd shipped from the US.

Edit2: I guess some people don't get my whine and probably think I should vote with my wallet just like someone complained on someone with a hate promos microbadge or whatever who bought something. But you can still hate them but still want the content / just think the distribution method is stupid. And it is. Much of the cost goes to shipping and not profits anyhow I suppose. I hate paying for unnecessary shipping, it doesn't contribute shit anywhere. Even in the end the oil used for the flight/transports is a limited resource and you use it up for the transportation. No help or solution for that. It's not resources/money just move around within the system. I order in bulk, do large orders, ask for deals if I buy more/many and so on because if I have to pay shipping myself I try to maximize the order / make the shipping cost for each individual item low and if someone else pay for it I feel like an ass just ordering one small thing or like maybe I can get something extra if I order much more than the people who do those kind of things.
Companies easily get added and noted on my black/dislike list though. And I can't really see how that benefit them since I'm much more likely to send my money over to companies on the other list ...

Does BGG earn anything if I buy this? Even though I'm from Sweden and shipping seem to be free? Does shipping cost line up pretty linear or does ordering multiple things for one shipment help?

Yup, BGG makes money on every sale of a promo, as the promos are essentially "payment" from advertisers for their banners and contests. So, publishers get advertising and BGG makes money from the promo sales.

Of course, we make a little less money on sales outside the US, but the BGG audience lives all over the world so we don't want to exclude anyone! It definitely helps us if you order multiple items, as our shipping costs don't rise very much for each item added.

Ok. Thank you

Because at least the website (and the most the reviewers of course) are helpful/useful

It would had been very hard to buy anything without it I wouldn't had any idea where to look

Got mine the other day (including Manticore). Surprised there were no rules included with Hecate, but I suppose those are readily available here anyway.

Nooooo

Was going to the store now but just because I haven't decided what to do / wanted to be nice it seems like the ghost stories promo / mini-expansion is out?

Am I out of luck with that one?

So stupid (

I want it

(The guardhouse that is.)

Crap. No more chance?

This is no longer listed in the Geek Store. I'm assuming it is out of stock. Any ideas if this will come back in stock in the future? Seems that since it was a promo, it would be unlikely.
