No separate decks were printed and it's not cost-feasible to do a new print run of just decks without the game. If you have the 2nd edition deluxe set, be aware that the 2nd edition basic set has the same deck though.
Thanks for the response! I kinda figured that was the case, but oh well. Good to know the cards are identical between 2nd-edition versions. I'll consider grabbing a basic copy; it'll be nice to have spares for the other components too - besides the deluxe chips, of course. I don't think I'll ever need spares for those. They are niiiiiice
Glad you like the game, btw! It seems almost like a secret game at this point, we somehow never even got reviewers most reviewers to LOOK at it. Spread the word.
For sure! I have no idea why this game didn't take off in a big way. It's often requested by my gaming group, and I recommend it to others every chance I get.
