Huh, interesting. The promos just arrived, and Walled Village, Governor, Prince, and Stash came as their 1E versions. The rest all had flag expansion symbols so I assume they were 2E. The wiki says not all 2E promos have been released, that must be why.


That's kind of annoying; especially for Stash which has new wording to make it work properly under the shuffle rule update.

Also, the wiki apparently says that "tournaments may offer promos as prizes." I completely missed that it was talking about real-life tournaments and real-life prizes, rather than Tournaments and Prizes. It didn't help that the word tournaments linked somewhere, the same way all the cards do when they are specifically mentioned on another page.

I did a mini-review of the first 5 here....
https://boardgamegeek.com/article/10398721#10398721

FWIW, try to value them by how much you'll actually use them.  Sure, the regular sets come with many more cards, but it wouldn't be saying much if you didn't like say, half of them.

As far as the rest of them go, Summons isn't too shabby, nor Dismantle.
You lost all credibility to me when you rated Governor and Stash as 5/5, but Black Market only 3/5.
Looking back to this day, I can say, it's good thing I don't care what you think :)

Based on the pattern, I assume Prince would get a rating of 8/5?

It would get a 3.6/5. Not great, but not terrible.

My point was that Governor (ranked 5/5) and Stash (also ranked 5/5) both have in-game costs of , and that Black Market (ranked 3/5) has an in-game cost of . Going back to the original post, Walled Village and Envoy both ranked 4/5, and also both have an in-game cost of . So Prince, logically, has to get a rating of 8/5 given its cost.
