Hey,

Just FYI, I ordered "Cities" From CoolStuffInc and received, taped to the outside of the box (in a little baggie), the "Louis" promo card! Hilariously I'd also just received my copy of Spielbox with this same card. I don't know if this was limited or what, but if you order Cities from CoolStuffInc you might get a free promo.

I'll buy the 2nd one from you for a reasonable price!

You can take my game… when you pry my cold, dead fingers off the board!

Anyone know if other online retailers besides CoolStuff are including Louis? (i.e. Boards and Bits) Maybe CoolStuff has it because they are also Brick & Mortar.

I had the same thing happen. It was completely unexpected. CSI is just fantastic (as are the guys at Boards and Bits--I don't know if they're giving out this promo, but in the past they have also added a promo for a game I bought from them, also as a complete surprise).

Just opened my box from Boards and Bits and the Louis card was included within the shrink wrap! An unexpected bonus but I was holding my breath after reading this thread earlier. Louis plus Dark Ages in the box made for a great day.

Edit: Just opened the game and there was a small cut in the wrap made so they could insert the card. My lucky day. Now if I could just get a hold of Stevie.

Stevie is easy enough to get, just order the issue of Spielbox from their website (oddly it is cheaper to have it shipped from Germany than it is to buy from a US store)

Easy, but not inexpensive. Even more so if you're uninterested in the magazine.

That's true. I placed a biggish order from them to get other promos, so it made sense to tack that one on while I was at it. I'd never read the magazine either, so it was new and exciting to me.

Best of luck, I'm sure it'll appear in the BGG store eventually.

Appreciated, but unnecessary. I'm monitoring this item in case someone wants to part with one for a reasonable price, but I'm not a completist. It's still just one card. It's not like 7 Wonders is going to feel wrong without Louis.

A little more than a month later, and I can confirm that Cool Stuff is still including the Louis card! Just got mine yesterday with Cities. Very unexpected!

I hope they still have them. I just realized I never got around to preordering Cities, so I just ordered a copy from CSI now and getting Louis would be nice.

Just got *MY* copy of CITIES from Miniature Market, and the Louis card was taped to the outside of the box as well.

Two months later, and CoolStuffInc is still including Louis Armstrong with Cities! Just got it in the mail today for my brother's Christmas present. I think I might have to buy a Christmas card, stick Louis inside and have my brother open that before the games.

Here I am at the end of January and I just got both Stevie and Louie from CSI after buying both Leaders and Cities expansion. Unfortunately for me the copies I purchased off of Ebay will show up later this week... Still CSI is awesome!

CSI is awesome. I just got Stevie with my copy of Leaders, and that surprise alone is enough to make me go back to CSI when it is time for Cities and more Wonders, even if I don't end up with a promo, it's still worth the chance. And worth repeat business. Next time I want $100 worth of stuff...

This thread emboldened me to try ordering Cities and Leaders from CSI (order placed Feb. 11). And I did indeed get both Louis and Stevie! Thanks! Now I love coolstuffinc even more!

I stopped by CSI on my way through Orlando last weekend (3/24/13 to be precise) and got Stevie with my Leaders purchase. I guess I missed the window for Louis, but it's still really cool that they throw in promos like that! Cool Stuff Inc is doing it right!
