Clarifications about the Expansion Cards
I've been getting lots of questions about why the Add-On expansion cards (an optional extra unrelated to the main game) are a different size than the main game cards! It's because they're from an earlier printing, and we made them specifically to fit these cool metal tins:
And then when we sat down to make this game, we realized that most people prefer cards at standard game card sizes. So the new game cards are just a tiny bit bigger (Euro sized).
HOWEVER, due to high interest in the expansions, I've now made an EXECUTIVE DECISION to reprint the expansion cards in the larger format, so they'll match the rest of the game cards! This does mean, however, that the expansion sets won't come in tins, but rather standard cardboard packaging. (You can see the difference between the card sizes in the video above.)
So – if you would prefer the tins and the smaller cards, just specify that in the notes!
Or if you prefer the cardboard and the larger cards, just order them from the Add-On page as usual and you'll get that by default. If you've already ordered the Add-On and want to express a preference, you can reply to your confirmation email and let me know!
I should also clarify that if you think the tins are cooler, or maybe you already own some of these cards from before, that's totally fine – you can play with both sizes intermixed and it doesn't affect the gameplay in any way. It's just an aesthetic consideration.
Note that nothing in this update refers to the main game, or to the Webcomics Pals Expansion Cards – all those cards will be at the larger, standard, Euro size.
Hopefully this clarifies matters! Thank you for your interest and support!
