Title says it all, there are folks talking about misprints on the tiles I'm assuming. Just curious what exactly is misprinted and whether or not stickers will be provided to very one getting the game post Essen.

Thanks in advance.

I believe the board has different markings around the edge for a 4-player game as compared to the other player counts to track which player it is and when to turn the die. Both sides of the board were marked for 4 players. The stickers fix these issues and I was told my copy will have stickers to fix.

Thanks so much Jim, sounds like a simple fix. Per chance did you preorder from Funagain? (That's who I ordered from and I hope it comes with the stickers).

I did not, I had a mule pick up a copy for me who let me know the details of the misprint.

The game is playable at 2-3p even without the stickers; you can ignore the extra positions moving around the board and the only other bit is markings to show where everyone's next turn will be (for planning).

Missing the planning markers is the main annoyance. Without them you either need to recount a lot (slow) or remember. Remembering is more manageable at 2p than 3p.

There are also some stickers to correct the English rulebook.

Last, but not least, there are some stickers to alternate cat art for 1-2 tokens (depending on whether you use the 2 stickers on both sides of a single token). The cat art is purely cosmetic, and adorable.

Was this misprint on the games made available at Essen only or affecting the entire first print run?

I'm wondering the same thing. I'm super excited for this game, but the idea of getting a misprinted version that comes with corrective stickers bothers me a little.

If anyone has an info on the wider retail release being fixed that would be awesome!

Ditto. Fortunately, I have enough other games to keep me occupied until the inevitable second printing.

For 1, 2 or 4 players there's no need at all to use the stickers.
For 3, well maybe, but you can use a cat token to mark the target space of the gardener.

So, you don't have to wait for the second printing.

It takes about 5 minutes to fix it using the stickers. Sure someone should have checked it before it was sent to the printer but it's an easy fix.

Well, as I understand this ain't an issue that prevents playing the game at all, and it can be easily solved.

But, does anyone know if the sticker sheet will be supplied together with retail copies bought on stores?

For solo play I have found no need to add the stickers to the board.

Yeah, it doesn't prevent playing (I know, since I've played a few 1-2 player games).

Any news on that one? Are all copies faulty?
Any ideas when the next print run will start if they are?

That's my impression, but I don't know for sure. To be honest, I don't notice the stickers on the board.

My retail copy, picked up in the UK came with the sticker sheet.

I got my stickies too from my online shop in Spain with the game. Didn't know about the misprint before buying it and I am not happy at all about the whole thing. Shameful.

Can you explain where to place those kittens? I thought they were only some gesture from the publisher asking for forgiveness and I threw away the remains of the sticker sheet with the cats in it blush

Plus, the reviews are not very positive...

The kitten stickers are just extras, they have no use in the game. I also tossed them out.

The board with the stickers has two spaces with 3 figures. 1 says START and the other says ZIEL.

Can someone explain why they both seem to be the same?

One of them is the end space, which if I remember correctly happens earlier on the track in the 3p game as opposed to the 2p game. There is a photo someone took in the images section of the game that will help you make sure you stick everything in the right place.

I did not see any images that indicated the difference between the two 3 spots. Can anyone point me to the right image, if it is there?

FYI, per the BGG blog:

Quote:
Uwe Rosenberg's Cottage Garden, originally released by newcomer Edition Spielwiese, has been picked up for co-publication by Pegasus Spiele, with the new printing of the game due out in December 2016.


Presumably with the correct board...
