I was wondering, if I pick this up through ebay, will it definitely have all the stretch goal promos with it? Are there copies of the Black Box out there that didn't come with the stretch goal stuff?

No, not all boxes come with promos.

There were six different promotional items available for the Black Box. Backers could choose a number of these (based on the moment they had pledged). So, each copy can have a different set of promotional items.

I may be wrong but I think the bonus items weren't in the gamebox itself but in the overall package sent to the bakers.

Thanks for the answers guys. Do all black boxes come with all the bonus cards? That's the important part for me.

If you're talking about: Glory to Rome Promo Cards

These are only included if the backers chose that as a reward. I'd say most would have chosen but I'm sure there are copies floating out there without the promo cards.

To my knowledge all copies of BB Edition does include these: Glory to Rome: Republic Expansion

If the box is in shrink, it doesn't have the Glory to Rome Promo Cards. The promo cards are cellophane wrapped and outside the box. I have a copy that is still in shrink and so did not come with the promos.

I bought retail and did not get the promos. When asked on here, someone from CGF said they would send the extra sets of promos to BGG. I doubt that will happen now due to the loss of employees and Ed having to re-launch the company.

Well, my blackbox comes with the promos. Without the actual blackbox game, though. Yeah, I ks the game.

Was there some problem with China not getting the game?

Thanks for the answers by the way!

I bought retail last summer and did receive the promo deck, even though I didn't ask for it. But maybe my retailer had received them as part of a KS deal.

Probably. I ordered from Miniature Market and I asked on BGG if the promo cards were supposed to be inclued in the retail edition (since the rulesheet for the cards was) and was told by a CGF employee that the retail version did not come with the promo cards.

I'm now buying a copy from someone local who got it from KS so I believe I should get the full load of cards. Thanks for helping everyone!
