Hey everyone. I posted this news here: http://www.boardgamegeek.com/article/13374571#13374571 but I wanted to make a thread for it to up the chance of people seeing that there's a misprint in the game.

Basically, the thief card should have a cost of 1/1 instead of 3/4. This is news direct from the designer himself.

Re: FROM THE DESIGNER: misprint on 4 cards!
Why does the thread subject say "on 4 cards" but the quote only mentions the Thief? Is that because there are 4 copies of the thief in the deck?

Re: FROM THE DESIGNER: misprint on 4 cards!
I believe that there is one Thief card in each of the 4 colors (one for each Excavation site).

Alright, so the thief is 1/1, but what do they do, exactly?

Oh, well that was covered in another thread I linked to up above... basically they're a weaker version of the tomb raider card. When played, you get to shuffle the cards in the specified excavation pile and pick one at random. If the card shows an artifact, you get to keep the card, and if it's worthless it goes back to the excavation pile.

I'm not keen on sharpie-ing my games either, but I imagine having one corner on 4 cards thicker than all others would do more to hurt the game than a permanent marker would.

Bad news from Queen on this... They have no plans to reprint the game in the near future, so there won't be any replacement cards.

This correction is in the printed rules that I uploaded here.

Those rules still have the misprinted costs, though.

Café Race is a race game set in a business office. The players take the role of office workers going upstairs to the first floor to get a cup of coffee who then improvise a race while they are going back downstairs… with a cup full of coffee.

As people have mentioned in the other thread, there are now corrected Thief cards and if you fill out the contact form on the Queen Games website, they may send you some. I just filled out the form yesterday and received an email saying they were mailing me the replacements.

I have contacted Queen Games by using the Contact form (http://www.queen-games.de/publisher.aspx) on their web site.

Eight days later, they sent me an e-mail telling me that the cards were on their way. They arrived two days later.

Great customer service from Queen Games!
