For those that are collecting the Kid Icarus AR cards, Gamestop is giving away an exclusive pack for free today. It is from 1 PM to 4 PM at select locations.

http://www.gamestop....ents/kidicarus/

Edit: According to a reader at joystiq the cards are
"Eggplant Wizard, Fiends Cauldron, Skyscraper Club, Firework Cannons, and Minos, along with possible random packs."
http://www.joystiq.c...ay-at-gamestop/

Edit 2: Just picked up a pack. All I did was ask about it and he asked if I wanted to try the game. I told him I already own it and he just gave me the pack. There were a couple people instore but not for the event. They had a stack of around 100+ on the counter.
The cards in my deck were: Eggplant Wizard, Fiends Cauldron, Skyscraper Club, Firework Cannons, and Minos.
I'm not sure about the random packs, forgot to ask.

Damn, closest one that's doing the event is about 60 miles away from me.

If someone gets the chance to go, let us know which card it is.

4 Gamestops closer than Owensboro, and none are having this event. Stupid Gamestop is stupid.

Closest one is about a two hour drive. Gas is to expensive for a card.

Someone on the gamefaqs board posted that the exclusive card is eggplant wizard, which comes in a pack of non-exclusive cards that includes fiend's cauldron, skyscraper club, firework cannons and minos.

Is that pack of cards exclusive to somewhere?

And this card from gamestop, does it come sealed or loose that you know of?

Looks like that same pack was offered in Canada and PAX East according to eBay descriptions. The cards are all sealed together.

Closest GS to me doing this is ~25-30 miles away...no thanks.

I went to PAX East and got two cards two different times from the Nintendo rep. Was slightly late for the 3DS panel so I missed out on the packs they were giving out. Not really crazed about getting these things, but it's kinda fun to nab some when the opportunity arises.

Thanks for the post OP. Closest gamestop that is listed to have the card is 1min away. Will be heading out later to grab one.

Does anyone know - in addition to the exclusive card(s), will they be giving out the 10-packs as well?

Don't think this is worth the 50 minutes round trip.

What's the purpose to these cards? I got the ones in the game, from the BB may and GS gave me a promo pack last week. Do they add actual content to the game? I'll have to try them out I guess.

In-game? Basically no point. You get a small amount of (100) hearts per each card scanned that you can use on weapons and the like.

Other than that, there's just the whole collectable thing and "AR Card Battles"

Derp* yeah I totally read that wrong. It's before noon so mistakes are allowed right?


Anyways I have the 3 cards from the gamer mag I dont need. I'll mail them out to the first person to reply to this post that wants them.

Edit- I just found the card from the GI mag I'll send out with the other 3
