New to DropMix, questions about packs and playlists.

BlueelfBlueelf Unsigned
Hey, I’m a huge Rock Band fan and picked up DropMix after finding out about yesterday.
I’m wanting to purchase some playlist packs but I’m extremely confused.
I saw the googledocs card list and I see there are possibly 16 different 16 card playlist sets I can purchase but I can’t seem to locate much info on them.
I guess my questions are: can someone explain to me which playlists are currently available?
Are all the cards in the discovery packs what make up the playlist packs?
Where the heck do I purchase the packs? I don’t really want to pay for overpriced EBay ones but that’s about all I’m finding.
Thanks for any help.

    So, the way the game sorts out the premade decks is to sort them into 15 card sets called 'Playlists'.
    What's confusing is that not all Playlists are found in Playlist packs.
    Playlist packs contain a complete Playlist (so a complete set of 15 cards) and also contain a bonus card, which belongs to the Baffler set.

    The other playlists are made up of Discover Packs. In discover packs, the card art in the packaging window determines which 5 cards you'll get.

    So to answer the second question here, the cards in the discover packs make up 8 of the 21 playlists that will be collectable over the first year of DropMix (2017/2018). To try and help you out, I'll list each playlist and where it comes from.

    Sweets (Pop, Popsicle Icon) - Found in the base set.
    Highness (Hip-Hop, Crown Icon) - Found in the base set.

    All of these packs (bar the exclusives - Flawless, Bomb and Chiller) are available or will probably be available at a number of retailers.
    UK: Game, Amazon
    US: Amazon, Walmart, Gamestop, Target, Toys R Us, Best Buy, Hasbro
    CAN: Toys R Us
    The list isn't the only retailers selling the game, just the ones I know of.


    If you've got any more questions, again, head over to the official DropMix discord (discord.gg/dropmix) and someone will be glad to help you out. Especially with regional retailers, which I know little about myself.
