I got a pre-release copy of Thunderstone Advance: Towers of Ruin at the local convention over Presidents Day. When I got it open and began to sort out the cards, I did not see a divider for one of the four starting cards - Thunderstone Shard.

So I wrote to AEG and they very nicely and very quickly sent me another set of dividers, but again, no Thunderstone Shard divider. While I scratch my head trying to figure this out, I'm using one of the five Basic Deck dividers.

Is anyone else having this problem? Am I just not seeing something?

If you can read this, then this sentence is false.

I don't have a copy yet, but the Thunderstone Shards are basic cards. I think it should just be two copies in each basic deck, and you don't need any dividers for them because there shouldn't be any extras.

That is correct. We have five Basic Deck dividers, which each hold 6 regulars, 2 torches, 2 longspears, and 2 shards.

There a dividers for the extra spears, torches, and regulars.

If you have more than 10 Shards, then that is the packing error, because there are no extras for the village.

OK, I see now.

Just for the record, I wasn't planning on using those Basic Deck dividers because I'm pretty familiar with the game. Given a choice, I'd rather put all 10 Thunderstone Shards in their own divider, but I can see why AEG did it this way.

Yeah, they switched over to the Nightfall method of dividing starting decks. I'm a little disappointed in that choice, but I suppose I'll live.

I don't understand what the problem here is. Having dividers for each starting hand is a great idea. Less time to set up the game.

Both systems get the job done, I just had no idea when opening the box that this was the plan. Everything else has its own divider so I thought one had been left out.
