Ice Age preview cards?

Post by berkumps » Mon Feb 26, 2007 12:06 am

I can remember way back when Ice Age was coming out, that there were a few preview cards released as dealer promos or in comic books and/or magazines before the sets actual release. These cards I believe are no different than the regular Ice Age versions aside from the fact that they were distributed differently. I know of the following:

BLACK - Norrit
BLUE - ???
GREEN - Chub Toad
RED - Bone Shaman
WHITE - Prismatic Ward

but I can't for the life of me remember if there was a blue card, and what it was. Does anybody remember these and know if there was also a blue card released before Ice Age was actually released?

I can't help you with the blue card, but I remember getting a Norrit with the Scry Magazine. Wow, that was a long time ago! It's too bad there is no way to distinguish the difference between the pre-released cards and the regular ones
