Just wanted to check that there really should be five copies of the "Grotesque Stone" card?

I don't need to know details/spoilers, but I assume one or more of the scenarios calls for multiple?

I only ask, because they come from the "Unique" Items deck, and... well...

And also because I notice the cards are stacked in alphabetical order, and my deck ends at Silver key... which is just far enough from the end of the alphabet to raise suspicion over missing cards.

But 5 x copies... and "1-5 players"... so I assume all is well?

There are multiple copies of various cards in other decks, but most of them are for understandable reasons, or numbered, etc.

...other than maybe the Damage & Horror cards, but there's no way to tell without a more specific component count, and I'd rather not spoil any mystery by reading all the text/comparing!

Thanks!

:maniacal_laughter: Ah, the "Unique" item decks, never failing to entertain.
For how much I love FFG, I would like someone to pound them on the head with vocabulary.

I can assure you that each stone is grotesque in a completely unique way.

Does the rule book list the components and the number of each component listed in the game?

Perhaps in future editions/games, they could call them "Special Items" ?


For anyone listening/interested (not aimed at FFG specifically)...

If a deck of cards contains duplicates (identical), please list in the contents how many of each should be present

FWIW FFG are pretty good at numbering sequences of slightly different cards (such as with the Spells here), as it would aid someone in identifying a particular missing card.

But when there are identical copies of just a few cards in a deck I prefer to know they should really be there!

Words have multiple meanings. Furthermore, "unique" was used this same way in Arkham Horror. The unique items deck in Arkham has a whole pile of elder signs and multiple copies of things like the Necronomicon.

Nice one. I always avoided this usage, as there is a lot of other synonyms that don't carry the ambiguity.

Ha! I just have to mention that when we got to the point where a Grotesque Stone is first mentioned, it definitely said something close to...

(emphasis obviously mine!)

If it weren't for the ever-helpful BGG folk, I would have been contacting FFG to check my card counts at that stage!
