Buy Promo Spirits

https://greaterthangames.com/store/spirit-island-promo-spirits

Are these ever going to be available again? Figured with the reprint hitting retailers recently maybe this would get reprinted as well?

 

Also, there's been a terrible accident. My dog caused a big cup of coffee to spill on my explorer deck and minor/major powers. Are replacements for those available for sale?

I don't know about the explorer or power decks. The Promo Spirits have been re-ordered, and when last I knew were expected to arrive with the 3rd core game printing and 2nd Branch & Claw printing early next year.

Hey! We can probably figure out a way to get those cards to you. Just send us an email to contact@greaterthangames.com, and we'll figure it out.

They definitely will! We are in the middle of reprinting them now!

Spirit Island, awesome game! We MUST have the 2 Spirit promos and Branch and Claw. Just as soon as you make them available my money will be on the way. I will order them directly from your website if possible or wherever I can get them. Thank you for reprinting for the rest of us who missed them the first round. I only just worked out getting the base game a few days ago. smiley

The promo spirits are Serpent and Wildfire, and were released alongside the game as stretch goals for the Kickstarter. The other two spirits, Keeper and Sharp Fangs, are part of the Branch and Claw expansion which adds a whole bunch of other stuff as well as those two spirits :).

I love this game and check updates every day to see when I can pre-order these suckers.

I was playing this game the other day when my mother-in-law walked in.  She took a brief examination of the board and asked me what I was playing.  I replied, "Spirit Island, it's a co-op game."  She responded, "ah, but you're playing by yourself?"  I said, "Yep, it's great, you can play by yourself!"  An uncontrollable smile formed at her lips as she said, "great, it's the perfect game for you then, eh?"

:')

We're going to be putting the promo spirits up for sale on the web store for $9.95 for the pack of 2 as soon as the next print run comes in (hopefully the middle of the month).

I see Branch and Claw is now available for preorder, will the Spirit Promos also be available soon for preorder? I'd like to preorder them both at the same time if possible.

Lazareth,

Uh yeah, I understand that. And I said that Branch and Claw is available for preorder, right now, from their shop but the Promo Spirits are not and I was wanting to know why that is and if that was going to change because  I would prefer to make one preorder purchase for both and not two seperate orders if possible but if there is no other way then so be it.

No, we're not planning on making preorders available for the promo Spirits.

Thank you for answering. That's too bad, would have been much more convenient to be able to preorder both and be done with it.

That said, I'm still thankful you are at least making the promos available to the rest of us who are a little late to the game. Missing out on exclusive promos that wind up with gouged prices on Ebay and often difficult to track down is not what I call a fun purchase experience.

So again, thank you very much for offering them to us here. I just hope that when they are available again that I don't wind up missing the announcement by a minute too long and they go out of print again. Whatever your inventory winds up being for the promos I'm nearly positive they are going to sell out, very rapidly.

Oh, my bad, I misread your post.

I agree, it would be much more convenient if they were available for pre-order.

Here's also hoping that the next upcoming Kickstarter expansion for Spirit Island does not include exclusive promos like these which have been extremely frustrating to get a hold of for those of us who found out about the game and it's limited quantity promos way after the fact.

GtG has never made promos exclusive in the sense you seem to mean. Yes, backers got them first. But, until the supply ran out, there were always ways to obtain them that didn't requrie a CMON-type approach of super-inflated prices.

Also, their cards and everything are on the official wiki - you can totally make your own print outs (I think that some high quality pics are floating aroudn somewhere too)

 

Not as awesome as the cardboard versions, but GtG has always been supportive of print and play their promotional stuff (Ie: SotM Variants)

Unfortunately they've been sold out and hard to find for non KS backers for a little while now. The main redeeming factor here is like you say, they chose not to make them exclusive to KS (BRAVO) and have been (and soon to be again) made available for purchase to the general public, albeit in very limited quantities...which was what I meant to convey.. My use of the term "exclusive" was poor wording on my part in this case. I rarely proofread my quick comments. cheeky

I don't mind that "early bird" approach to KS bonuses and approve ( I wish more KS project creators used it) just as long as said extras are made adequately available and in sufficient quantities at some point afterwards for those of us who missed the KS or just don't prefer using that method for acquiring new games in the first place. smiley

I'm curious to know just how many sets of promos were ordered for the restock.

Ah! Good, I wasn't sure they had made it up to BGG yet, given that there has been size issues with BGG and some of the Spirit Island files.

Yes, promos available!

"We have a pretty substantial quantity in stock now, but if we run out we'll print more!"

Total respect for that outlook Paul. Big shout out to Greater than Games for handling KS the right way, meaning everybody eventually gets the opportunity to get their hands on everything their game has to offer. I'm new to GTG's stuff and with this kind of service I'll be back for sure.

Thank you!

Alex is handling web store orders now, and he's gotten a bunch of the ones that just came in packed up! If you already ordered and paid for FedEx shipping, your order will probably go out today. If you haven't ordered yet, or selected USPS, it is likely going to be Monday.

I for one can be pleased for the efficacy of Alex. Now to get further addicted to this game. Also to echo the sentiment thanks for only making things on KS available later instead of not at all.

i have yet to get a statement saying they even got my order! i also sent a message on friday but no reply yet. It's weird, the amount IS on my credit card, but the site did not create an account for me in the store (despite my clicking yes) and i didn't receive any confirmation email. :/

I got the confirmation but the invoice shows Branch and Claw on back order (ordered with the promos).  I wrote them regarding this in the morning but have not heard back yet.

Same here., dropped an email but hadn't heard back yet.  I picked up the game within the last month and have absolutly fallen in love with it.  I would love to get my grubby fingers on additional spirits.

The last I read, they were predicting around Thanksgiving-ish? But I have no source for that, make of it what you will.

Earlier than that. It's being printing and will show up with the fifth printing of the base game, which I believe is expected in August.

The State of GTG posts are good for this.

It doesn't seem incredibly difficult for someone to add that bit of information to the ordering area though. "tentative reprint coming in August."  Still, thanks for the information.
