Limited Run is known for offering physical Switch games in limited supply. Its latest deal is a bit different from the usual offering. Available from 1st January 2019 for $29.99, the 2018 blind box promotion gives Switch owners the chance to purchase one surprise game and trading card from the company’s collection.
In total, there are seven common games, two uncommon games and two rare games. Each customer can purchase a total of five blind boxes and Limited Run assures potential purchasers it has done its absolute best to minimise the chance of receiving duplicates. If you’re really lucky, you may score a rare Limited Run Games autograph card and there’s also the chance you could receive a one-of-a-kind printing plate card.
Below are the full details:
This blind box contains one random game from our past Nintendo Switch physical releases and one random trading card from our collection. There is a possibility that your box could include a one-of-a-kind printing plate card, which is an actual metal plate used in the production of our trading cards. You may also receive a rare Limited Run Games autograph card - which can normally only be obtained by meeting a member of our team in person.
We have done our absolute best to minimize the chance that you will receive a duplicate game if you order multiple blind boxes. Nintendo Switch blind boxes are packed in cases of twelve and each game in each case is unique. The chance for duplicates only exists when we have to open a new case pack to finish an order. Please note that placing multiple separate orders for blind boxes may result in a higher chance of duplicates since those orders may not be packed out from the same case.
Each blind box has a gatefold design for an awesome unboxing experience. The gatefold holds the trading card on the left and a window on the right side allows you to see the cover of the game inside the box. Make sure to have fun while you unbox these!
The assortments of games are as follows:
- Common (86% of boxes): Flinthook, Mercenary Kings, Slime-San, Saturday Morning RPG, Night Trap, Kingdom, Thumper
- Uncommon (10% of boxes): Thimbleweed Park, Oceanhorn
- Rare (4% of boxes): Yooka-Laylee, Furi
Due to the random nature of these items - no returns or exchanges are accepted, all sales are final. We can not take requests for specific titles because we do not know what is in each blind box.
