Well even though its only in the Chicago area, its still annoying for us around there as well. Today I had a plan to go get one of the free cards from a Gamestop as I live about 20 minutes from the city. I looked up quite a few Gamestops near me and they were like "huh? What is this game?" and had NO clue about it. The first one I called in the actually city of Chicago was like... Yeah, we have them, and we have a lot of them and not many people have been coming in to get them but a few have. I was going to pick up a card from there, but the store was almost an hour from me, and it just wasn't worth it.
I had a friend of mine stop by there, as she lives closer, and she dropped it by my house. Although everyone seems to think its unfair that it is only available in Chicago, its very, VERY limited in that area and not like many players are even close to that area. The thing that is the most unfair is that it is not available at every gamestop around. I know that would be a bit much for them to supply but really... The store I called had at least 1k of the cards. I'm sure 95% of them won't even be used [sadly].
