Default Promo card availability description change

The page of each promo card used to say something like "This card is currently available" or "this card is not currently available grab it if you get the chance!"

However now they say

This change make it alot harder to know which ones I should buy off E-bay if I see them (I.E. the out of print ones)

The best way I know of to determine availability is to make periodic purchases from Warehouse 23.

I make about 2 purchases a year from Warehouse 23, being in the UK means lager postage charges and if I try to balance that by making larger purchases her majesty's revenue and customs charges me large import duty.

From memory the only one that is out of print that I still need is henchmonster which I still keep an eye out for, and heart of the anomaly, but I have given up looking for that one

The best bet then is to keep an eye on the Trading Post forums here. Even if you don't have anything to trade, there are people here who'd make sales, or even if you'd be willing to order from W23 and have it shipped to someone you're trading with. For instance, if someone bought me a Munchkin Zombies Water Bottle, I'd give a pretty nice chunk of my trade list for it. (But I don't have an extra Henchmonster.)

You should also hook up with a local MIB who can always give you what info they have and help you get some promotional cards and goodies :)

I just wanted to say that I'm not complaining about warehouse 23's prices, quite the opposite, my last order even with the overseas postal charges was still cheaper than if I had ordered from amazon UK even with their free postage! Plus I get free promo cards, coins, bookmarks and beer mat for munchkin quest from warehouse 23

So thanks for that guys 8)
