How was it distributed?
As far as I can tell, it was not included in the Party Pack itself but made to promote sale of that product; it may have been available at GAMA but everyone I know who has one received it from a W23 order. That is just anecdotal.

No icon at all is correct. It's an unusual and confusing promo.

Thank you for the info. It's not in the Party Pack expansion, but I'm still not sure if it was released to promote the Party Pack or refers to an actual party, perhaps at GAMA. If they are being given out in W23 orders I'm most happy I only paid a few dollars for mine. The few I've found for sale are typicallly quite expensive.

I have some additional but unverified info about the VIP Anniversary Party promo. While searching for a copy I asked two sellers what if anything they knew about its origin. I received two very different responses.

One seller said; "This card was released at GAMA in the penthouse party - I believe it is about 2 years old now"

The other seller said; "Released in 2018, it seems it was a "secret promo" where the card was sent with orders over $100 for the SteveJackson product launch game, Illuminati. This card, along with a few others came in that same package from SJGames."

I suppose they could both be essentially correct. Note the reference to "secret promo". Assuming there is such a thing, I interpret "secret" as "stealth", which is to say they are known but distributed outside of normal channels.

For example, blank GUAL cards with various backs, such as the one included with later printings of Munchkin Dice, seem to have been distributed as promos. Some were given out by W23 but apparently by mistake. I assume but don't know if they were distributed by other means.

If the VIP Anniversary Party promo is given out by W23 that would indicate it's not a secret promo, unless they made a mistake similar to the GUAL cards. None of these promos are listed on the old or new website (unless I missed them). This appears to be intentional, at least for the GUAL cards.

I want to stress I'm as much in the guesswork as fact stage, so if anyone has any additional info on the VIP Anniversary Party or secret promos I'd love to hear it.

Thanks.

Curse! Steampunked (Door) (title may be off)
Seething With Unknown Energies (Treasure)
.... gine (Door?) (title unclear)
indifference engine (door)
professor tesla's electrical protective device

all 5 with the munchkin.game url

Nope. We've already shipped all or almost all of the U.S. rewards and international should be in progress soon if it hasn't already started.

Later this fall, we'll release this to distribution and have it in Warehouse 23.

Sweet! Glad to know I didn't (entirely) miss out on this one! :)

Death - Fantasy Door (LibertyCon 2018 Auction Winners PromoCard 1/3)

This card is loosely based on the Italian card Rigor Mortis. See my Avatar for a look at the card artwork.
