Convention or Tournament Freebies

What sort of stuff do you like to see? We'll be more likely to give you that and less likely to give you crap you don't care about!

Art prints may be nice, but I could never turn down something that would change the gameplay.  (Oh... and an oversized card (say, size B5) would be pretty awesome as well.)

I like the Alternate cards that can be played with existing decks and art prints would be pretty nice too.

I'd say alternate cards as well. I'm pretty excited about trying Legacy with the alternate card, hopefully sometime soon.


See the way my body's glowing? Yeah, a lot of people can't do that.

Alternate Cards would be sweet. Alternate art cards would be really cool too. Have you all looked into doing alternate art cards for villains and heroes?

I'm with everyone here.  I love the effect alternate cards have on the game.  I do think that having cards with alternate text as well as art is important.  The trick with that, though, seems to be 1) having a reason for characters to have alternate cards 2) making it different enough that it is worthwhile.  Some heroes seem to lend themselves to having alternate character cards more easily than others do.  At least, I think that would be the case.

We have a large bag of tricks from which we can pull cool alternate rules/art/etc cards.  Now that we know that they are strongly favored by the community, we'll try to do that wherever possible.  The biggest trick is slipping promo cards into larger print runs so that they are not too expensive.

If you buy the game (or expansion) at a con, I love the idea of a promo card. However, I also really like the idea of buttons or stickers as freebies for demo-ing the game at a con since it's publicity. Art prints are awesome, but you just put them in your room or whatever and no one else sees them. Button you wear on your person walking around the con.

I'd also go with the alternate cards or the art prints, I think both are great ideas.  Cards are nice for the obvious reasons that this is a game that has the major advantage of being diverse.  I like getting new cards that add to the game.  However, I'm also a huge sucker for art and the artwork on this game is AMAZING!!!

I really like the idea of oversized cards.  A B6 sized Ra, big enough to hold four Ras, heheheheheh.

<-- Yay, I'm a Citizen, for the second time.  Does that make me a born again Citizen?

I voted for other.  I realize that this might be stretching the boundaries of reason... but maybe just a tiny, short comic book?  (puppy dog eyes). 

If that's not on the table, then my back-up vote is for art.  I really like the Next Legacy card, but I'm not sure how excited I'd be if every deck had two alternate versions,  I think it would take away from the uniqueness of the game rather than add to it.    Just  alternate legacy alone is great,  no need to muck things up, IMO.

I like the idea of extra special cards, but I'm totally a sucker for buttons. If SotM had a full button set, I'd buy all of them.

Oooooh! A short comic book would be a totally sweet give-away! I love that idea!

I like the idea of a short comic being handed out, but only if it would be avaliable online like discussed on a different topic.

I actually like the idea of an online comic separate from a convention freebie/tournament prize... makes the convention special and there's always ebay. :)
