Thread: DC Promos Rant

    DC Promos Rant

    So as stated on here before, we would like another way to get promo cards besides the 2nd hand market. I understand that they are release as motive to get product early or to attend events. However I think that after a certain time there should be another way to get these promo besides overpriced(imo) resellers. With Starfire it is understandable, but with Flax.....I live in an area where the nearest event was about 6-7 hours away(thats a round trip, night & food just for a promo). I think I can speak for some people when I say "My money is here, give us another way"

    Also I would love to get some DC DBG mat(s), but did not see any on the site and again with the limited supply and resellers.


    Sorry for the rant, of course you know this

    Promos seem like a never-ending problem for tabletop games. I ran into that problem with Fluxx recently until I realized that Fluxx sold blanks and I found a 100-pack of 8.5"x11" sticky photo paper for $19 on Amazon. [Link]

    I bought some blanks and printed passable proxy cards for my set rather than jumping through the hoops needed to get the official promos. The added thickness the printer sticker adds isn't noticeable when the cards are in sleeves. If promos continue to be an issue, I'm considering doing the same for a few other games, including DCDBG in the future when Justice Society of America Crossover Pack 1 releases since it's a 25 card set with 18 regular cards and 7 over-sized cards. I'll just use the cards in that set as if they are blanks to create proxies for hard-to-find promos and homebrew cards.


    I created my own mats as well over on Inkedplaymats.com. They have photoshop templates that can be used to design your own playmat. It allowed me to add spaces for overflow cards for the line-up and a destroyed card pile.

    It saves so much energy and helps deter eBay price gouging. Just be sure to have a ruler with a hard edge and an exacto knife when taking this route.

    We are trying to make more of our promos available through BoardGameGeek store so you have the option of purchasing the promos separately.

    Please visit http://boardgamegeekstore.com/collections/all to view what promo cards are currently available. We are planning to send promo cards to the BGG store after about 6 months from release dates so please keep posted! Unfortunately, some promos have already been purchased and are not available at this time.

    May I ask why you don't sell them(or in the Future) on here?

    BoardGameGeek store allows for international shipping for the promo cards as our estore would not. We want to make the promo cards available to all customers, even those outside North America. So, our friends at BGG are able to make these available.

    "International Shipping" would be a perfect Super-Villain card if there was ever a joke set released.

    I have a question about the Bane promo card available in forever evil pack. How would I get it? Do I just preorder it from any site like coolstuffinc or miniaturemarket? Or do I have to preorder it from cryptozoic website?

    Just buy the FE game from any place that has it in stock in December and it will be INSIDE the box. After that there could be a reprint that won't have it. It's only in the first printing.
