Hi so I discovered this Deck building Game last year and have been collecting expansions, have quite a lot by now. But a thing more difficult to track down than expansions are promo cards especially considering I don't even know how to be certain weither or not I have them all. We should have a list somewhere, a list that could be updated like on a forum or something

So what I know exists out there is

DC
Martian Manhunter (DC DBG FP)
Starfire (Heroes unite FP)
Bane (Forever Evil FP)
KidFlash (Teen Titans FP)
Gotham Docks
Felix Faust
The Joker
Skitter
Black Lightning
Vixen
Gypsy

LOTR
Merry Pippin
Second Breakfeast
Eowyn (Two Towers FP)
I fear neither death nor pain (Two Towers FP)
Faramir (Return of The King FP)
I did what I judged to be right (Return of The King FP)
Arwen (Fellowhip of The Ring FP)
Ride Like the Wind (Fellowship of The Ring FP)
King Theoden
No More Despair
Gandalf
The Turn of Tide

Hobbit
Radagast

Cartoon Network
DeeDee (Crossover Crisis FP)

Naruto
Minato (Naruto FP)
Mecha Naruto (Ultimate ninja PS3 game)

Attack on Titan
Hange (AoT FP)

Street Fighter
Blanka (SF FP)
Lightning Canonball (SF FP)

NHL
Henrik Sedin

Rick and Morty
Promo Rick (RnM FP)

Volunteer Cards
gamer's Lucky Dice
Convention Center
Extraordinary Stamina
Cryyptozoic 2015 Volunteer (male)
Cryyptozoic 2015 Volunteer (female)
2016 ctz Volunteer (male)
2016 ctz Volunteer (female)


So the once I am struggling the most with figuring out is the LOTR and Hobbit promoes, is that all of them or am I missing something? I am in so much doubt it's infuriating, also I don't have any of the LOTR or Hobbit Promoes yet, but I pretty much colellcted everything else on my list.
Also yeah I got no clue where any of the LOTR promoes are from, could be First print promoes could be from conventions I dunno, someone correct me and update me please, educate me

There's another promo Gypsy for DC that was released at origins game fair, but there's currently only 6 in circulation right now iirc.

BGG Store is unreliable for collecting promoes, yes it is cheap and yes they have a few and they are to some extend in rotation, but when I have to wait for a specific promo to appear without knowing which promoes would appear when and if ever, I cannot collect all promoes through that site

Gypsy? I didn't know, why is there only 6 in rotation, are they reprinting it? and if they are for what?

They were given out to the winners at origins game fair, there was only 6 winners. I believe matt Hyra said there would be more given out at gen con and it would eventually be printed and sold on boardgamegeek

Correct. Lots more at Gen Con. Even if you didn't get into a scheduled event, we are running pick-up games for 1 generic/player. Whenever 4 players are ready, they can play a deck-builder. The winner gets a Gypsy or other recent promo.

What's the prognosis on Black Lightning? With all the caveats in his ability, will he be receiving a new printing soon? (Obviously not before Gen Con)

Also, @ALee, who is Hakase under Attack on Titan? Do you mean Hange?

No problem with house ruling it personally, just curious on your input since other people have pointed it out.

I'm fine with a promo card that goes off with some very specific card combos and then a lucky draw (meaning it will happen rarely).
BL won't be used for Tournaments.

LotR - Return of the King Promos
Faramir
I Did What I Judged to be Right

Lotr - Two Towers
Éowyn
I Fear Neither Death Nor Pain

NHL Power Play 2014
Henrik Sedin

There is another Promo for NHL for first printing, I can't recall who it was suppose to be. I think it's similar to Naruto's situation though, since First Print boxes seem to be the only thing out there.

Other then that, there are 5 Volunteer cards, with the Crpytozoic Logo, these were handed out in 2015.
There are 2 Oversized Character cards, both with the same effect, with either male or female artwork, along with 3 main deck cards. if you were given these cards, you were only given 1 character card and the main deck cards, so probably impossible to get a full set of this at this point.

http://imgur.com/a/WMOEf
Best images I got of them, from what people have posted.

I think that's everything that was missing from your list. There will technically be two versions of Black Lightning and Vixen, with an errata'd effect for Black Lightning and updated DC Logos for both cards...

I almost got a full set myself, basically missing Kid Flash, Volunteer Promos, and Gypsy. Looking to get a hold of them, or at least proper scans at some point. Anyways, happy hunting, a good number of them turn up on Ebay, and people do trade on BGG.

We might give the 2016 promo to the vols this year, since the 2017 will be shipped to them after the show.

Hey folks, looks like BGG restocked. Last night I got the last Bane and a Gotham City Docks (which they have none left as of now). Missed out on the Martian and Skitter (assuming they actually had any, but they weren't on the page before). They are showing 11 Starfires and 5 Jokers as I type this.

At first I thought a copy of Gypsy hit ebay but then saw it was just Vixen and I already have it and the 2016 version of Black Lightning Anyways

Agreed, but hopefully something will come down the line.

Saw Black Lightning 2017 promo and Kid Flash Hit ebay as well, and it's been a very long time since they've been up, and I'm pretty much at a complete collection now outside of Gypsy and Volunteer promos.

PLEASE come up with a better system for promo cards. This is just obscene and waiting on promos to show up on BGGStore just for them to sell out in 30 minutes is getting old.

And this is coming from someone who has gone to multiple conventions in the L.A. area over the years just to go to the Crypto booth. I spent $50 for one day at Anime Expo two years ago just to get the Joker promo. shadowking and I went to Wonder-Con last year just for LotR-Desolation of Smaug and the Ghostbusters II demo.

We're devoted and on your side and this promo thing is still driving us batty. The guy who owns our local FLGS in Bellflower is sick of us asking if he's gonna take part in the upcoming Crypto organized play because we're the only ones that show up every time he does it. Work with us here.

I agree Dime, at least last years promos had enough in circulation it was about 20 a pop after Gen Con, this is way too rich for my blood, 75 dollars, I'll wait for the next round of this promo to enter circulation and get it then, I honestly don't think its worth 75 being a main deck card and even if it was an oversized card that's still overpriced.

Nothing that good.

Once during each of your turns, if you have played two or more Heroes, choose a player. That player may put a Hero from his discard pile on top of his deck.

he can be broken with 1 costs too. for example........ I have a total of 7+ different 1 cost cards in my main deck, all have to play is per degaton, or lightning strike, and use 1 costs. still infinite combo. ive said this before, he needs to be ONE USE ONLY. that is the only way he is not broken. AND what I want to know, is, is your new errata going to be printed on the card. it needs to be. or else people that don't visit the forum like us, will go nuts on his wording like my group did.

GuruGuru214

Sounds like your group needs to relax. "X cannot be 0" is more than enough. Making him once per turn only would nerf him into the ground. What makes promo cards fun is that they have unusual abilities, and not every loophole in the game needs to be sealed up airtight.

My group was actually really upset to hear about the errata. It makes him a much less interesting card for us. We were lucky enough to get our hands on a pre-errata copy at one of BenJazz's tournaments, and it's been a lot of fun for us without ever breaking the game, so that's the version we intend to keep using. If "X cannot be 0" isn't a strict enough addition for your group, go ahead and house rule that he can only be used once a turn.

CushionRide
02-16-2018, 06:04 AM
your group is upset about the errata because they like over powered characters

here is my first experience with Black Lightning. before we knew there was errata for him. we used to play double characters just for fun. once in a while it got OP but it was still interesting to see what you could come up with. my friend wound up with black lighting and shazam. and he was grinning ear to ear. me not suspecting anything was like sure lets do this. and I had a good combo too so I wasn't to worried. right off the top of the deck he got bumblebee. ok didn't care. I wound up with avatar of the rot right away. cool ill start flushing him with weaknesses. sweet. not sweet. with only 2 weaknesses he literally bought the entire main deck. our game lasted about 10 turns.. bumblebee and 2 weeknesses without errata gave him infinite power and he could do it every turn as long as he had a discard pile and a weekness in hand. which I was providing.


so I agree with the errata. to a point. until the same friend broke him again with the errata using what I just posted above. yes it happens. lol heck in confrontations he broke felix faust right off the start the first time we played the game. he got THE DEEP location. it was sooo stupid. but wait. hold on. im reading this card for the first time. its black lightning as a location WTF. and its once per turn lol HA HA HA......

02-16-2018, 06:45 PM
The great thing is a group doesn't have to play with a specific character if they don't want to. If they feel a card is too over-powered or under-powered, then they can decide on a house-rule or choose not to play with that character. Given ALL the characters with such VARYING mechanics that Cryptozoic has come out with I expect there to be some outliers in both directions. It is hard to avoid given the breadth of releases in the series.

Also, as we get further into discussion, I would like to throw out the friendly reminder to be mindful of others participating in the discussion and respect differing viewpoints. There isn't always a right or wrong answer to a topic.
