After enjoying the Vulca/Hoax decks a ton, I decided to make the leap and order all the decks associated with the game. They finally arrived yesterday afternoon and since I've got today off, I was up until 3-4 AM ripping plastic, opening each deck and carefully examining the contents of each, excited about the prospects of being able to play with it all.

I was also pleased to note that two of the decks included promo cards, according to the stickers on the cellophane, both earth spirits. Imagine my further surprise when I opened the Pillar deck and found TWO earth spirits in it. A packaging mistake?

So now I'm sitting on three earth spirits. Is there a proper place to look for trades for the other promo cards?

Do you mean in E&I: Allies? I believe all Pillar decks had one earth spirit, all E&I:A decks had two earth spirits.

All I can say about that is the memorable quotation from the fictional Francis Urquhart. (You've got Google, do the work if you care.)

Problem is that pretty much everyone interested in the game has at least one, if not three, Earth Spirits. Water Spirits are also fairly widespread I believe. Fire Spirits are - difficult to obtain is an understatement. (I got mine directly from Reiner Knizia, and he didn't have many.)

Having also acquired all of the Blue Moon decks recently (couple months back), I had the same experience with the Earth Spirit card. So now, I have at least 3 if not 4 of it. I believe FFG has the Water spirit as a free add-on for any order (or they used to) I'm a little bummed that water spirit wasn't included as a bonus in the Aqua deck. That would have been thematically consistent (and not require me to order something for full price)

Thanks for the info. Don't necessarily need the other two promos - was just curious if others had seen the same distribution of the earth spirit (sounds like they have).

(Yeah, the two earth spirits probably came out of the E&I deck, but I was too focused on checking everything out to remember. )

As I'm sure you know, not that one. (In fact I don't recognise that one, whereas the one I had in mind became nationally - but probably not internationally - famous when House of Cards was televised.)

"You might well think that, ... I couldn't possibly comment."

The following two might fit as well, but I'd hope not...

"Soon I will be everyone's Daddy."
"This is an act of mercy....truly."
