As you know, NX-Odin's Redux is a "sealed deck" adventure and players may only equip the tokens they get in their free 10-pack. However, even if a player is lucky enough to pull a Crown of Treasure Finding or really lucky enough to pull an Ioun Stone Gold Nugget, they may NOT equip it. They are welcome to keep it for use on a future non-sealed adventure.

Or 7th level badge holder and 8th level pin. Or 9th level badge.

All players, regardless of their player level, will receive exactly three treasure box pulls after completing NX-Odin's Redux.
NX is aimed at new players. If veterans want to play, that's okay, but they're still only going to get three pulls like everyone else.

Ok. I thought this was different last year, but I support it.

Avoids potential bad feeling.

I think level-based bonuses were allowed last year, but this year we really want to focus on this as an entry-level adventure for new players.

That is different from last year but it is understandable.

Will Side Quest (Gamehole Con) be the same?
Classes Played: Barbarian (23 times), Monk (17), Ranger (12), Rogue (10), Cleric (9), Fighter (9), Dwarf Fighter (7), Paladin (5), Druid (5), Elf Wizard (2), Wizard (2), Bard (1)

This seems... bad. For a new player, not being able to use one of the 10 tokens they just pulled (and their only rare!) is a very VERY bad experience.

If you're going to do this, I'd suggest having Coaches carry an assortment of Rares to swap them out for anyone who is "unlucky" enough to pull a banned token. This has more potential to turn a new player off than to cause actual issues with bonus treasure draws, in my personal opinion.

Hmmmm. Maybe it would be a good idea just this once for tptb to take a look at the rare they are putting in each bag for this particular adventure, and take out the 30-40 crowns that would likely make their way into the coaching room? I am not sure I like that, but I do agree with this point Isauteikisa made here.

There is some chance the UR will happen

1000 packs
1% chance of a UR
1 in 20 chance of the Nugget.

So around a 50% chance that this happens even once over the course of the entire con..
Of course each pack is an independent event, so it could happen more than once. It could also not happen at all.

Will NX-Odin's Redux be giving away 2018 treasure like like N3 did at Origins?

Will you be able to get treasure chips or do you have to do your 3 draws immediately in the epilogue room?

I'm not playing NX at GenCon, but thought other people might want those questions answered.
