Summon: Promo Event card
« on: July 31, 2015, 01:08:31 pm »

Hi, it looks like there will be a Promo Event card for the release of Adventures in Germany.

(Exclusively for preorders on this page: https://www.spiele-offensive.de/index.php?cmd=gruppendeal&grid=85)

All I can see is that is called "Einladung" (Invitation) and costs $5 (and it has one coin symbol in its 2-line-text).

(Edit: Changed the thread's name as the discussion is still going on)

Yes. If you click on the link that market squire posted, you can see the promo in a wrapper in the lower-right corner of one of the images. It's definitely an Event.

There is in fact a promo Event coming this fall. It will be available in English via BGG as usual, where it will be paired with Pathfinding with the art fixed (that's not a tree).

Hooray!  Now instead of paying $5 for just 11 cards, I can pay $5 for 1 card (maybe 2)!

From my perspective, Events aren't less work than Kingdom cards, and don't contribute less game play. But if you are burning them to keep warm, then yes, there won't be as much cardboard.

However much it costs, the money that doesn't go towards shipping goes towards supporting BGG (who gets given the cards for free). If that's not a cause you're interested in, well it's easy to proxy up one card.

Oh, I'll be buying it, and I understood all the work and whatnot.

Anyway, on to speculation!  It looks like it costs either or , and it has a cost in its text.

"The vodka is good, but the meat is rotten."

I will now explain the joke to make it funnier.

There is an apocryphal story—which I first heard from my father many years ago—about the first ever Russain-English translation computer program. The story goes that, after it was completed, the first test phrase they entered was, "The spirit is willing, but the flesh is weak." After the program translated it from English to Russian and then back to English, the output was, "The liquor is good, but the meat is spoiled."

That seems to be more or less what has happened with this promo. The original English word has more than one meaning, and the German translators apparently decided to go with the wrong meaning, and then chose a similar word that, as near as I can determine, has a completely different connotation than even that wrong meaning. "Invitation" actually matches the effect of the Event pretty well, but it sure won't match the art.

Maaaaaaaaaaan... now if someone else upvotes the joke, we won't know if it was because of their sprawling general culture (or huh superior Google-fu). Have you never heard of jokes as social identifiers!?

So, the Event is named Prostitute?  It better combo with Harem.

At least on my phone it looked like Snowwhite and a dwarf/garden gnome. Wonder what she's inviting him for...
