I know there was an extensive thread before and after RDR's release on people looking for the limited run of RDR playing cards that were being given out at select retailers.

Obviously, Rockstar has another huge hit on its hands and I suspect is looking to make a few extra bucks. That being said, it looks like they are offering up all available promotional items plus a few collector's goodies for RDR via an official store.

Check it out here: http://rockstarwareh...drliedfrco.html

Notable Items:

Playing Cards & Dice - $10

DELUXE (not sure what the difference is) Playing Cards - $10

Dynamite Candle - $15

Too bad there is a minimum order amount, otherwise I would have ordered the $15 pack.

Actually really cool stuff. And now, cue the "I'm never preordering again" comments :)

Anyone have any idea what the minimum order price is? I can't seem to find anything out on the site.

Very cool but shipping somewhat kills it, as it quickly rises to $30 for 2 packs of cards (granted on deluxe with hard case) and dice ... but still very tempting nonetheless.

From the info section of the page:

Please note that a $1.50 handling charge will be added to the shipping costs and that there is a $20 minimum for all orders.

Wish I had extra money around, would of bought some of this stuff knowing that I love RDR. They want a shirt for 20 bucks with shipping and tax which almost comes out to be 28 dollars for NY. I'm not paying 28 dollars for a shirt, I've never spent 28 dollars on a shirt in my life lol.

I ordered the Collectors Edition Package #2 for $20 and it came out to $28 and change after shipping and tax. It's not too bad if you really want that stuff. I thought the dynamite looked cool so I ordered it. :)

$20 bucks just for some cards and small plastic items? lame

Just keep in mind the cards, dice and shirts were being given out at launch events for free and soap is ... well soap. If people are going to order, I would say the real collectible stuff is the deluxe card set and possibly the candle, though I'm not sure how much value a candle can really gain.

My selling thread...full of rare press only merch that you don't really need.

(gaming promos, posters, press kits, developer signed items, etc.)

Best Buy and Walmart received the Playing Cards (for both midnight launches and in-store purchases).

I believe everything else, candle - t-shirts - soap - etc., was given away at select few Gamestops via Rockstar selection.

Would have ordered the cards but the 20 dollar minimum order and shipping kills it.

You guys do realize there are tons of decks of the RDR playing cards for sale on eBay, right? Many have an opening bid of $1.

Aye, I'd check eBay if you're looking to snag a cheap pair of the standard playing cards.

I'd really like to know what makes the Deluxe version so "deluxe" besides the sleeve.

Honestly, this is a deal for those who love collecting gaming related items. I'd say with the shipping minimum, you'd be better off going with one of the collections.

I think both collections + shipping and tax was like $42 for me...

From the looks of it, it looks like it is the sleeve. Other than that, the cards in the pictures look identical.

I'm an idiot so I was going to buy some of this stuff, but thanks to rockstar having a minimum purchase (WTF, are you kidding?) I didn't order anything and saved money.

These are actually pretty cool lookin cards.. a little flimsy, but the style is the same from the game. The difference between the 'deluxe' pack is basically just the way the box opens up, it seems to have a sleeve that slides out of the box instead of just a flip open lid.

I got these free from WalMart when my friend picked up Red Dead the other night, the kid gave him a pack and I asked for one and he just tossed an extra pack on the table. thnx WalMart guy.

Cool cards, but I'm still glad I pre-ordered becuz the golden guns are nice too.

Anybody know if the cards themselves are good quality? If they are high quality cards like a bicycle or something, I might be convinced to order. I like the artwork/styling on the cards. The $20 order minimum is a huge turnoff though.

BTW the deluxe cards' case says "clothbound" which you can kind of tell from the picture. I'm thinking like a hardbound book cloth type material.

I really want the stick of dyno! It comes to almost $30 shipped to NY for me. I am so close to hitting the submit order button. Is the stick of dyno really nice prop to stick near my gaming area? If it looks tacky then i would pass. The cards are sweet but not just worth getting for that.

Actually they are fairly good quality, however a little bit flimsier than bicycle. They are worth a buy though if you like the artwork. I have used them a few times and they look awesome.

Minimum order is $20, lowest shipping option is roughly $9.50. I'd love to pick a few of those things up, but that's robbery. Fail.

I really like the playing cards....too bad about the minimum. I don't need 4 decks or $20 worth.
