That would have been EXTREMELY useful information when I chose to take draws over 10-packs.


No, he is referring to Treasure 10-packs NOT sealed 10-packs of tokens.

This year, there were 10-packs, 40-packs at some point, 50-packs, and 100-packs.

You turn in 10/40/50/100 treasure coins, and get a bag of 10/40/50/100 tokens from the treasure supply.

I heard someone say they were selling the treasure pulls as well in the multi-packs but I think they were mistaken. Can anyone confirm or deny this rumor I heard?

I would suspect its was confusion caused by the merch desk being next to the treasure pulls. I cant imagine TD would sell treasure directly (and if it did I cant imagine that news of such a thing wouldn't circulate like wildfire).

My Group had 167 Pulls:

75 Uncommon
49 Rare
29 Monster Bits
5 Trade Ingredients
5 Random GP (1250)
1 1000 GP Bar
1 5000 GP Bar
1 Icecrag hero Earcuff
1 Redoubt Helm

One run I pulled 10 Uncommons in a row from the lobby treasure box. The bags seemed slightly better in terms of uncommon ratio.

Those are standard 10 packs of tokens, which is different from special 10 packs of Treasure box tokens.

Saturday around 7pm they had a box with 100 treasure pulls and I made 3 pulls from the box:

103 total
40 rares
28 uncommon
3 rare gold
2 uncommon gold

Ghost slot 10 packs were standard token 10-packs from the store.

I found out today we hit our first ur in a starter pack and also found a 10 treasure bag still zip tied. It had an icecrag in it.

How are you all drawing so many times? I must have done something wrong. I did two runs and got to pull 3 tokens after each. If you are pulling 300 times does that mean you are running through 100 times?

This was my first year at Gen Con and TD. I feel like I was doing something wrong by buying the 10 packs.

No, people are not running through 100 times.

There's tokens which you can equip that let you draw more treasure at the end, so it's possible for a single player doing a run to get 16 or 17 treasure chips per adventure. If you're doing 10 runs yourself (which is still very high, but I know folks who do 3 runs per day, and 1 on Sunday, which =10) you can have 170 pulls by yourself.

More likely, when someone says, "I did 340 treasure pulls" it's because they have a group of 10 friends, and they run both adventures together wearing all the treasure-enhancing tokens, and then pool their treasure chips at the end. One person does all the pulls for the group, and then shares the loot among the friends later (this works particularly well for groups who know each other in real life, or who run with relatives/kids/roomates.)

Ahh. That makes sense. Thanks for your help! I like true dungeon but running running it 10 times would be quite pricey.
