Interesting, because I've always had exactly the opposite problem--I have dozens of extra Goals and plenty of extra Keepers, but I have to keep getting more Blanxx because I'm out of Actions and New Rules.  I've always wondered why LLabs made the *least* useful blank cards take up two-thirds of every Blanxx pack....  Apparently it's because some folks want even more of them than that!  :)

Presumably, as long as there're folks griping from both sides, the current mix is about right.  And I'll just have to keep trying to think of a use for dozens of extra blank Goal cards.

(But I think all of us Blanxx-crazy folks can agree that, next time there's a new printing of Blanxx, there shouldn't be the *same* promo card in every pack!  I've got about eleven Beatles Reunion Albums now, and that's *after* giving away one or two of them to everybody I know who's got Chrononauts....)
