Can I get a list of Promo cards and what expansion/core set they go with. This might have been provided already but I am not sure. I have Skitter, Bane, Gotham City Docks, Starfire, Felix Faust, The Joker, Martian Manhunter, and Vixen. I know I am missing Kid Flash. I have seen Black Lightning and Blue Devil online are these Promo cards? Are there more out/coming out? Where do all these belong?

Kid Flash is a Teen Titans event promo. You can find the same card in the Teen Titans Go! expansion.
Black Lightning is a Promo that will be coming this summer in event kits your store can order. Not tied to anything.
Blue Devil is not a promo we have ever done.
Gypsy is a promo tied to Birds of Prey and given out at last year's events in very small numbers. They will be available in great numbers at this summer's events.
A new promo will debut at this summer's events, tied to New Gods.

Seems like you have most and a handle on the rest.

Does that include Origins?

It might if the shipment is on time... Probably less than a dozen will be given away there as Tournament prizes.

For Vixen, Black Lighting, and Gypsy, will the cards ever be available to purchase through Board Game Geek or have I missed my window? Would there be any other channels to grab them other than OP kits or going to summer events?

Been avidly getting all possible DC deck building cards, but these have eluded me.

These will all be in the BGG E-Store at some point. Vixen will be there in a couple of months.

Mostly the FPP. For now you can usually buy Skitter around $80 (if you can find one for sale which is not often -> boo). I had to order original FE boxes from Europe to find some with Bane, I paid about $75 per FE w/ FPP set for those when I found someone with a few. I have a pretty well maintained list of all the promo's I've bought in the last 18 months or so, and in general to build a full cube roughly half of the cost is for promo's. For the upcoming TX tournament (and we have one planned for TN but haven't released info on it yet!) the best I can figure is to begin proxy'ing them and just use the real version of the characters for the camera/stream and keep the proxies for off-camera games. Not my preferred solution, but it does save about half the price of building a cube so there is that. Just my thoughts. I also understand the position behind FPP so the reasoning's for it are well understood and I'm not necessarily complaining against it, just giving my opinions on the hard-to-get stuff.

CSManiac33
04-05-2018, 08:50 PM
I was more of referring to in general rather than just any specifics but primarily on non-FPP Super Heroes/Villains as Felix Faust and Gotham City Docks are pretty common and I can understand the reasoning for not re-releasing FPP as it is kind of against the whole concept of them in the first place.

This is great! I've been looking for this one for quite a while now. Now just to wait for the others... My local game store has tried multiple times to get the Organized Play kits, but they have been unsuccessful so far. :( Hopefully the next Organized Play season will have more kits available for stores so that they can tournaments.

Matt, I noticed the BGG store version of Vixen appears to be a 3rd style print, namely the DC logo in the top right is filled.

Is there plans to make changes or reprint Crossover 5 in that style as well?

Hey Matt,

Wanted to confirm these are the only promos for 2016/2017, working on updating the info for BGG and such.

Also for the 2016 CZE Volunteer, was the idea that you would get 1 added to the main deck per player/volunteer?

Are you just talking about Volunteer promos?
There was also female version of the 2016 Vol, but no different. Other than that, those are it.
The idea was you could add as many as you can get your hands on (up to 4).

Is this a reference to something/thematically tied to a certain set? I haven't seen Rick and Morty or many f the newer cartoons in the Cartoon Network sets, so I'm not sure if it's a reference or just random silliness.

I know these Volunteer promos weren't made in mind of people using it competitively or anything like that, but it helps catalog for collections and general interest.

Forager will be in an OP kit next year, then on BGG after that.

They will also be available as prizes at Gen Con.

It is possible that one or both come back at some point, but no promises can be made.

They should try PSI. They are our distributor. GTS and Alliance would have to get them from PSI, so I can understand why they might not have any.

+1 if you switch from using PSI. After two months of unreturned phone calls and emails it's very clear they have no intent of selling anything.

We may or may not have more for the BGG E-store in the future. We will have to see if there are unsold OP kits.
If you have a local store, they can order the kit: PSI/Distributor Code GYOPKT

Being in Malaysia, it might be easier to buy one on eBay for just a little bit more than on BGG.

So a question regarding promotional materials. My FLGS in Vancouver Canada claims to have problems getting a hold of promos through their distributor. In light of some information flowing about the Rebirth set and a 'Scenario 0," what are the chances of there being direct support to stores or of fans being able to get copies of this directly?

It is a retailer exclusive program, only through PSI. If your Canadian store doesn't deal with PSI, I suspect their CA Distributor does, and can get them if they try.

On OP Kit is an Organized Play Kit that hobby stores can order from PSI Distributors. It gives you info on hosting events, 12-13 promo cards, a playmat, and a poster to advertise it in your store. Only stores can order it.

Yes, Forager will make it to the BGG E-store possibly at the end of the year or soon after.
