Just a heads up that this promo is now available in the Geek Store!

However, acquisition of The Drow Wizard Promo is a bit different than all of the other promos to date, as it is not directly available for purchase. Rather, you must buy any two promos from the "Dungeon Command Drow Wizard Promotion!" category of the Geek Store (two of the same promo is fine as well!).

If your order contains two of these promos, I will automatically add a Drow Wizard figure and accompanying stat card to your order. Please note that the product will not appear in your order confirmation, but rest assured it will be in your package when you receive it!

You can visit the Drow Wizard category of the Geek Store here!

I go there and its a dead end. Is it sold out, or just not working. I see nowhere to select any items.

Seems an odd way to do things. I would like to have the Dungeon Command promo but I don't even own any of the games associated with the (only?) 7 promos available to get this offer and I have to get two of them?
Kinda sucks.

I'm with you. I already bought some of these promos, and the rest are for games I'm not interested in.

I'm in the same boat, or close, I've purchased all the ones of the 7 that qualify for games that I own.

This would make way more sense if they had the other two DC promo cards and you had to order both of THOSE to then get the drow wizard. Having to buy 2 essentially random promos for other games is really odd.

I'm sure they're not random but rather items that are not selling well or some such thing.

For sure but they might as well be random for us as the buyers since they are all promos from different games, ones that are very likely not all owned by people that want the DC promo.

It's a shame the other DC promo cards were not included in the package as it might then be more tempting. As is, $10 for a single figure that is simply a repaint of an existing model doesn't really feel worth it.

Yup, we picked some slow sellers since the Drow promos needed to benefit us in some way in order for the distribution to make sense to us. We're not allowed to sell any promos from Wizards of the Coast, but we are allowed to use them as a "buy X promos, get this free" promo.

So, in the end, the Drows help us move a few slow sellers, and the cost to gamers is about the same as if we were just selling them outright anyways.

Shame I've already purchased 4 of the 7 promos and have no interest in the other 3. Had I known that holding off would get me another promo, I'd have waited. Of course, now I may wait on other BGG Promo purchases in case there's another situation like this one.

Fair enough and boo to WOTC for putting this kind of silly restriction on you guys. If I even knew someone with any of those games I could give those promos to I'd likely bite but I don't so I guess I'm out if luck.

Yeah I'd never blame BGG for this, WoTC is terrible with their promo availability. It is amazing they released some at all to the store.

Why can't BGG just send them to users and only charge postage? Would that violate the WotC "rule" ? Bundling it with other stuff ( non WotC stuff - like WotC would have an interest in that stuff selling ) just seems like a way to exploit demand for the promo item in order to move other slow moving stuff.


Also, is this promo a BGG exclusive, or is it available elsewhere?

Marty, the promo was available for anyone who participated in the D&D Game Day event back on July 21-22 at a local game store.

The WOTC rules for all promos are strange. Better for BGGers to just get extras at conventions and then give them away to other gamers.

Is this a different character alltogether (new stats on the card) or just a repaint? If it is a completly new character, I would order - but not if it is just a different paint job.

Hi Chaddyboy,

I am sure it is just an oversight.

I just received the package today but it sadly did not contain the DC promo.

I ordered two of the promos, Eminent Domain: Bonus Planets & Nightfall: Zombie Horde (I don't own either game).

I sent an email to the BGG store address and am sure it will be sent. Just wanted to let loop you in, in hopes I can still receive it.

Thanks,

Frank

Just a quick note, so this incident doesn't put anyone else off, I received an email back from the BGG store with apologies for leaving out the promo. As suspected it was just an over site and there was an immediate promise to send it out asap.

Cheers

I was in the same boat as many of you, with zero interest in the promos offered for sale. I picked the anime style cards to give to my daughter who loves the stuff (can't even remember the name of the game) and the Nightfall card, which will just end up gathering dust.

I understand why it was done this way, I guess it's the luck of the draw whether you own the games you have to buy for. Either way, I'm very happy to be able to get the promo.

If only the D&D Adventure System promo cards had been offered this way as well. I had to print my own...cry
