I know there was a lot of surprise over the last time GameStop held such an event. Even if you don't own the game, I imagine it'll be a good place for StreetPasses.

Join us May 12, 2012 at select GameStop locations between 1pm and 4pm, to try out Kid Icarus, and receive a GameStop Exclusive Kid Icarus AR card (while supplies last).

Once again I have to debate if the card is worth the gas, sigh.

Same store only 4 miles away is having this one (They didnt have the last one though, but they did have the first one).

Wonder if its new cards though. I really hope its actually booster packs instead of just the 5 pre-determined cards

I was told last month when I picked up the Eggplant Wizard pack, that the free cards in May would be the same pack. I'm not sure if that applies to all stores.

My store had no booster packs or Nintendo reps at the April event, just employees handing out promo packs for those that played a demo of Kid Icarus.

Lame. None of the stores in Anchorage are doing this, but the tiny town 30 miles out will be doing this promo.

I went to one of these in IN a few weeks ago with a friend, only one other person showed up over the course of the first two hours and they didnt even bring their 3ds(at which point I left). Luckily the Nintendo Rep was my old one from college when I worked at TRU, so we played catchup since no one was there.

Word to the wise, if you are looking for people to Streetpass with, go to Pokemom TCG tournaments.

I'll be stopping by the 14th street store to check on the AR cards after I see The Avengers at 11am. If you guys stop at this location can you report back if they have a lot of card packs? I don't want to waste a trip down there. Thanks

If anyone wants to be a buddy and pick up an extra card for me, I'd greatly appreciate it - I'll hit you back for your time and shipping.

I'll see if I can grab an extra. Knowing gamestop, they'll be ridiculous and limit one per walkin though.

If someone could do me a favor and grab me one as well, I'd greatly appreciate it! The closest GameStop to me that's running the promotion is 40 miles away.

I'll never understand why Annapolis gets pissed on during these events. We're the state capitol, have 4 gamestops within a 2 mile radius and they NEVER do these things. Oh well, I got a mess of cards from PAX-East so I guess I don't need it.

Good luck to those getting it, let us know which card it is.

Damn, the same exact stores in my area are hosting it and I still can't head out to them.

I really hope they pop these on Club Nintendo like they have for EU. I'd be happy to burn away my coins on'em.


Yes! I am in a signature! :applause:

I can't speak for other areas (but it should be the same for stores where a rep will be present),..but I am the Nintendo Rep for Orange County, CA stores, and I will be handing out the Eggplant Wizard cards and Series 1 Booster Packs as well to anyone who has the game :) For those local, I will be at the store in Anaheim on State College & Lincoln. This site will list the stores where a Nintendo Rep will be,...http://kidicarus.nin...prising/events/ . I will also have Mario Tennis Open on hand to preview :D

Argh, none of my nearby stores are doing it.

It looks like the store by my Dad/Step-Mom's house is doing it though, and since I'm heading over there tomorrow for Mother's Day I guess I can pop in on the way and see if they have any cards left.

Stopped at the 14th street store. What a train wreck! People were standing around, flipping cards and trading, some playing. Nobody was really organizing anything. No cards were visible so I just walked out. I felt weird walking in, asking for cards and leaving. Oh well.
