Just announced. I'm really hoping one of my local gaming stores will host an event for this....I doubt it, however, since they cater mostly to Magic players and Warhammer 40k. Not sure how else I'd be able to get the promo without resorting to ebay scalpers (who really ruin the whole fun of promo cards).

Thats a pretty beast super villian. That super power is pretty good as long as you have a discard pile. The first appearance is killer for people with good hands.

Matt mentioned that a promo starfire card would be given out with a preorder of the expansion from the site. The promo martian manhunter would also be given out in addition to the starfire card upon request. Maybe the felix faust card could be given as well, or perhaps pick two of the three cards. I already have manhunter so i would take the other two.

That would be nice. I've been unsuccessful so far trying to get my LGS to host this tournament...

Has anyone received a Felix Faust card?

I'm wondering if the promo has even started yet? Throughout October, I called/visited both of the game stores I know of in my area a couple of times each, and even several comic book/collectable stores, and no one had even heard of the promotion. I provided links to the game store owners, but they didn't seem interested/likely in hosting the event.

Does anyone know of a way to get this card in the San Diego, CA area?

I've been watching eBay, in hopes someone might put it up for auction, but so far, I've been unable to find any reference there. Even Googling only brings me to the link in the OP. I'm quite anxious to get the Felix Faust card. I think the First Appearance Attack is brilliant, that it could really shake up a game, and be a lot of fun. I'm keen for the experience!

My store I go to in the Chicago Suburbs is signed up for the event. We have 20+ people attending tomorrow and NO PROMO or Prize Support. We are even listed on Cryptozpoic Event page running it.

Same here. I went to the DC event scheduled on 11/9 at my local game store, but the owner said he never received any promos or prize support. He confirmed that he did set up the event months ago and checked that his store was indeed registered under the events sections of the Cryptozoic website, but that he never received the support package.

The owner was very nice and let us play the copy he had available in the store, but everyone was a little upset that the promos and prize support were not available.

Thank you Darth and Lex for your replies. It's too bad Cryptozoic is behind on their promotion with Felix Faust, and apparently all to do with the new Heroes United. I was over at a friend's house yesterday and several of us were playing DCDB and having a really good time with it. I should like to have had the expansion, as there were more than 5 people that wanted to play.

Is there anyone at Cryptozoic that might be able to pop in here with any sort of update about Felix and/or the who HU Expansion? Perhaps exact dates won't/can't be provided, but maybe you could say if you're still working on these, are we "close" (weeks) or still "far" (months) away? Will there be an alternate way to get the Felix card?

Thanks, from an eager customer ("Here, take my money!"). :D

In order to receive an event kit, a store must contact Alliance Game Distributors in the US or their authorized distributor in Canada to pre-order a kit. We had an incredible response to the kits and sold out almost immediately. We are working hard on creating more kits and will have them available to distributors as soon as possible.

Creating an event on our website is a great way for players to find out about events in their area but does not automatically register the store for an event kit. The store must call their distributor to order the kits. Thank you for your interest in these events!

How long until more kits are available?

I must say I'm rather disappointed in how the game days with the Felix Faust promos were handled. In reading the article, it seems implied that if a store was signed up for the DC Deck Building event, it would have the promo kit available. It seems like a huge miscommunication on Cryptozoic's part to then say that the event coordinators had to then order the kit on top of that.

My friends all paid $5 to enter into the tournament and we ended up walking away with nothing.

I'm curious as to how many kits were made for the event. I did several searches back when the events were announced, and there were only about seven or eight events in all of Ohio. I also wonder why none of the Felix Faust promos has popped up on eBay. If all these kits were distributed to all these stores, surely a few of them would have made it to eBay by now.

There are some upcoming game days in the Minneapolis area me and some friends were hoping to go to, but if its like what you say, we might not even go. Getting the Felix Faust promo and possibly a mat are the big incentives for us.

Two questions.

1) Where is that stated? Link?
2) If this turns out to be true, where do we preorder? Check the store and couldn't find a preorder page.

Just got the base game today and the prices for MMH on eBay are stupidly expensive for a single card. Would gradly preorder the expansion from Cryptozoic today if there is confirmation it comes with all three promos by request.

1) I've seen Matt Hyra, Cryptozoic R&D, has made a couple of posts on the topic, there's one in this thread, the first link I found:
http://boardgamegeek.com/thread/1024307/preorder

2) And in this thread, Matt talks about preordering, finishing with "Preorders from the Cryptozoic site will be coming soon. Maybe even December..."
http://boardgamegeek.com/thread/1081435/preorder-on-cryptozoic-store

I got impatient and found MMH on eBay for what I thought of as "reasonably expensive" :rolleyes: And I can tell you he's a very powerful Hero to play. I hope you get yours!

Now I just got to figure out a way to get Felix Faust. lol :D

My local store received the Felix Faust promo card this week and awarded them out at a tournament. This does, however, lead to a question that arose after we added it to the super villain stack: what happens if people have less/more cards than normal when the first appearance attack happens? The specific incident occurred when a player managed a Suicide Squad forced discard to all opponents, bought the super villain, then Felix Faust turned up as the next super villain. However, I can easily see this happening with Bane, or other cards. In the reverse, players could have 6+ cards in hand due to playing as Wonder Woman, or defending and drawing additional cards. We resolved this after a fair bit of debate that it should be treated like we would Brainiac - if you don't contribute cards, you don't get any cards. A ruling from the developers would be appreciated.

We just take one and pass them until you no longer have any cards to pass. It has happened where someone has a different number of cards than they started with. The only time we exclude anyone is if they defended. If someone just managed to triple Suicide Squad everyone, but then gets hit by Faust, thems the breaks. I've been forced to return a SV to the line when Anti-monitor has hit. SVs are supposed to be rough.

I can't find any local tournaments near where I live.. (Torrance, CA) I want to find some local event that does dc deck building game, but it's mostly magic.. Any advice on finding tournaments? I also want to find way to get FF promo card. Thanks

Second on this. L.A./OC is lacking in events. I've got a friend who works at a comic shop seeing if he can convince the owner to add this game to the shelves, but it's not looking good right now.

Is there anyway of getting the Felix Faust card in the UK? I already own the original game and I have a pre-order with my FLGS for Heroes Unite.
What would I need to do to get FF?

For anyone in the Chicago Area, I think I've got my shop owner open to hosting an event but I can make a more persuasive case if I've got some buy in and numbers for people who would attend. Any interest?

Toshirauma

For players in the UK, I will be sending Felix Faust promo cards to our distributor in your region in the very near future. Your local game stores should contact their reps in about 2 weeks and request these cards.

For players in the US, these promo cards are going out to stores over the next two weeks. Stores do not need to create events to receive these cards although it is recommended. They do, however, need to contact their Alliance sales rep. We don't have an infinite supply of these cards so make sure they request them soon!

For players in Canada, I have already sent these cards to all the distributors that we work with. Each one may have different requirements for their stores to receive these. Have your stores contact their distributors directly.

Thank you so much to everyone who loves this game! I hope you enjoy the promos!

The event I attended was over three months ago, will that store still get the promos we were supposed to get at that time or will they need to request them again or do a new event?

Also, are the playmats being sent too? Part of the event I went to said 1st and 2nd received a DCDBG playmat also.

I can say that as a store owner, we have been waiting on the playmats for months now. Alliance is our worst nightmare as a distributor, but since they are the only place we are allowed to get the product, we are stuck.

I'm sorry to hear that you have been having trouble getting these promo items. Please send me a private message with the name and location of your store. I will work with Alliance to get these playmats to you as soon as possible.

Been crazy trying to get a Felix Faust card. I've been to two different events where they were supposed to have them, and tried to work out a copy of the card through another channel as well. Completely ridiculous distribution!

Hi. About Faust's ability. It says "a card with different cost from 0-8" does that mean I cant put more than one kick into my hand as they are same cost? Thanks

M_Bieniewicz
07-29-2014, 01:14 PM
Correct. Felix allows you to return up to a theoretical 9 cards from your discard pile when played, so long as the cards costs are between 0 and 8, and none of those cards being returned share a cost.
