So I have bought Glory to rome black box edition on B&B and got an extra pack of cards separately. They come in shrink wrap and I have not yet opened them. What are they? Some fix? But there are too many for misprints. Maybe some promo cards?

Someone else's deck? Probably a customer in Italy or Bangladesh. One of those who paid for the game far in advance and so of course they haven't gotten theirs yet.

I doubt that, it was totally separately, just strapped to a box. Maybe that is a geek expansion?

Since there is a grand total of 4 customers in Italy, I really hope you are wrong, or it will surely be my copy...

It's Glory to Rome: The Geek Expansion.

Geek expansion (note the hollow cirlces at the top right of each card)


As opposed to Imperium/Republic edition cards that are part of the base game

I received those cards as well with my Kickstarter version of GtR, but they are in the "old style" artwork - was I *also* supposed to get the versions with the "new style" art?

That was up to you. Both versions of the Geek Expansion were among the bonus/promo options to choose from in your Kickstarter survey.

Ahh right - but looking at my Pick List, it shows I *should* have received the Black Box promo cards, not the I.V. versions - guess I'll contact Cambridge. Thanks for the reminder!

Are these cards just for kick starter supporters or should all black boxes come with them?

I bought from CSI and my game came with a rules insert for the geek expansion but no geek expansion.

Thanks

ANother thread answered this, but too lazy to link now...

Word is they put it in there to simplify packing (iow... packers won't need to check if the box was to include the exp... just put it in and go).

Ks folk had options to get the exp, but someone mentioned the exp being available on CSI (perhaps other FLGS).
