    Not in an eBay lot, just a single “buy it now” item on eBay. I snagged it as soon as I saw the difference in packaging. It wasn’t cheap, for a single pack with 2 ships, but it seems like it’s pretty rare even if the contents are just reprints of other ships.

    Someone on Facebook mentioned that they remember getting a promo pack of some kind in a Swedish magazine. I remember something about a rare island that was only available in a European magazine, but I can’t find a mention of that island anywhere (and it’s hard to search on “Pirates CSG rare island”). Does anyone know more about what I’m talking about?

    Here are some photos. It feels like there are only 2 cards in here plus 2 islands.

    The back has some text: “Promotional use only, not for resale.” It has a Danish (Copenhagen) address and mentions Enigma Distribution. The URL now resolves to the Nordic Asmodee website.

    The “instructions” on the back of the pack translate as “Build ships, find…[Read more]

    Ben suggested that I ask here and hopefully Holofernes, Woelf, or Old_Man might know.

    I came across a pack of PotSM that has “Promo edition” in the circle on the lower left of the foil. The info on the back makes it look like this is a European pack (it’s from a seller in Sweden) but the packaging is in English. Additionally it DOESN’T say “of…[Read more]

  • IMO the only way to do this would be to get an agreement/contract with NECA ahead of time to purchase the rights. Only then would you start a KS to raise the funds. If you just randomly started a KS to purchase something you have no idea if they even want to sell, I can’t imagine anyone backing it.

    And for it to succeed (or for me to support it),…[Read more]
