Alliance doesn't ship to Canada, last I heard.

That is seriously lame. I'm sorry to hear that.

So, the annoyance of tracking down promo cards continues?

There is the Book Wyrm promo. Also IIRC, there is a dragon in Gobsmacked and Waiting For Santa (though I'm not certain that Dragon Claws actually has the dragon label).

I understand that you are annoyed by this. Alliance is one of our major distribution partners, and working with them on a promotion like this (in the U.S., far and away our largest market) increases the visibility of the game and may get some people who aren't already Munchkin fans to look at the game. That leads to more sales, which leads to our being able to make more games for everyone.

tl;dr - We're a U.S. company that does the majority of our sales in the United States. Turning down a cool promotional opportunity because it only serves the U.S. market would be poor business strategy.

Dragon Claws is a Dragon by virtue of the rules in Dragons, since it has "Dragon" in the name.

Yeah, especially since they probably would have set the cards aside for me before I even asked, had they gotten them. I think I'm their biggest Munchkin customer. They've spontaneously given me stuff before, like the Munchkin Booster counter display they decided not to use (I still use it to hold all my dice, level counters, coins, pins, etc.).

Looks like Guardian Games has no copies of Game Trade #186, either. Oh well. I'm missing so many promos now that it is hard to get too upset, though these sure looked nifty, and I like the Dragons in general.

EDIT: I'm getting mixed messages from Guardian Games now. Another person e-mailed me to say that the issue isn't actually out yet, they have it on order, and they can pull a copy for me (though I'll have to buy the magazine, so hopefully it isn't too pricey). So maybe I will get them after all.

My FLGS held a set of the promos for me. Not sure if they got a couple extra copies or they opened one of the magazines for their use and I got the cards.
I'm the only one who ordered Steampunk & Diplomatic Impunity so they threw them my way. :)

Yay! Guardian Games is holding a copy of Game Trade for me, free of charge. I'll get it this weekend.

EDIT: Guess I spoke too soon. They'll have it this weekend, but they just wrote back to say it is not, in fact, free. Still having a hard time getting them to tell me what they will be charging, though.

Please do not buy this pack for ridiculous amounts of money.

Even IF the magazines all sell through please do not pay ridiculous amounts of money. Please be patient.

If you find the magazine/cards for a decent price then go ahead and grab it. Anything over the magazine's MSRP? Patience is your friend.
