BG2 Collectors cards

Postby Wycen Adamantite » Thu Mar 15, 2001 10:31 am

So, I was flipping through the contents of my BG2 Collectors Edition box the other day, and I noticed something. On the back, it claims to come with a set of 8 collectible cards for BG2. However, and I recounted to make sure, I got 16 cards, as did my friend who got 16. The same 16 cards I did, exactly.

Anybody know how many total cards are available? I'd like to get my hands on more, if possible.

Thanks.

The reason your friend got the same 16 cards is because they aren't "collector's cards." They're simply a marketing gimmick, a little like the metal ankh or cloth maps included in previous Ultima adventures, or the cull color foldout maps in Might & Magic boxes.
To the Righteous belong the fruits of violent victory. The rest of us will have to settle for warm friends, warm lovers, and a wink from a quietly supportive universe.

I figured that would be quite possible, but I'd like to know definately if there are ONLY 16 cards.
