I wasn't able to go to the Essen Spiel this year and I had organized a mule for just one game:
Days of Ire

Now someone told me, that every unit of the game, that is available at the fair has a misprint on the box.

Does anyone know about this and how bad is the misprint?

(Actually if it is just the box, i don't really care, as long as rules and components are fine, but just for the sake of knowing it xD )

Hi, yes we spotted it half way through selling all our copies too.
It's purely cosmetic, one of the thematic texts on the back got it's font information all garbled, essentially printing random characters on the back of the box. We immediately checked inside, all components (including cards and rules) are fine.

The factory was immediately notified and all the mailed KS copies will have their box backs reprinted before shipping begins.

Aren't defective coins always valued highly by collectors?

So the shipping of the game will be delayed by how many weeks?

None to very little, and even that is only if compared to the "we're shipping several weeks early" stance

Considering we sold out on day 1, I think it's safe to say it was good. Hopefully next time we won't have to spend a small fortune on air freight

I'm just waiting for my sleeve order to arrive, to sleeve these nice cards up and then get a game running =)

I would like to upload a photo of the misprint, just for fun,
but i'm asking politely, if that is okay.
Because people could misinterpret/misunderstand that and think, that this is a failure on all copies.
Maybe wait a month or two? I don't know =)

Well as long as you upload it with the caption "The secret code on the back of the Essen Collectors Edition" I have no objections

And also upload a few other shots of the non misprinted parts of the game too please

Alright, will try to make a decent photo-shoot with the game in the next few days.
Maybe just have to write a decoder script, so that the secret code is revealing something good =)
Like: "Illuminati infested! Please handle with care!" or something like that =P
