What is the exclusive stuff in Zombiesat Walgreens?

I can't find any info anywhere, and my Walgreens carries ZERO Munchkin.

Walgreens has over 8,000 locations. Munchkin is placed in close to 5,000 of those stores (the smaller stores, usually in remote areas, aren't included).

The Zombies and Legends releases at Walgreens were limited. I don't think we ever posted an exact content mix.

Our Walgreens just doesn't order anything anymore, they used to have an awesome selection, Pop Vinyl exclusives and everything, now both locations are phasing out their toy and game sections, mostly coloring books, playing cards, convenience store quality cheap toys, that kinna stuff. That was the reason I stopped collecting Pops, it was getting too expensive paying 3-4x their price on ebay, etc.

Wal-Mart are the ones stepping up their game.

Yeah, to my knowledge, "they" have never said what was exclusive to the Zombies or Legends releases. My guess is that they contain bookmarks. To my knowledge, no one on the forums has said what was exclusive, or confirmed seeing one in the wild (aside from a poster above who saw a Zombies set).

It was a pretty quiet release (I happened to see a picture on Phil's twitter page), and the 9 Walgreens in my area never carried either set (trust me, I've been to all 9, several times to find the Zombies and/or Legends; and bought all of the Grimm Tidings sets from my closest store to see if they would stock them; and had my parents check 6 stores in a different state for my birthday lol).

I don't think we have ever shared what's packed in the boxes. These were so limited, I don't even think we have many copies in our office. The games are out there somewhere.

The hunt begins!

The thrill of the hunt is what drives me as a collector, I will hopefully track one of these down and reveal its secrets!

If anyone is in Seattle - 3rd Avenue and Union had it.

Yes - I live in Chicago and had to travel 2,000 miles to find it (Ok...I may also be on vacation...)
