I just found out about this game and am interested in buying it but would like to know, are the issues with the Valley Games reprint game-breaking or just an annoyance? I have heard that the rules are atrocious and there are many misprints on the board and on cards. I really hate sloppy releases like this but as the game sounds interesting, I'd like to know if these errors should put me off?
It all depends on if you mind having pasteups on specific cards in a deck of cards that are supposed to be secret instead of marked. The pasteups on the mapboard and the need to print out updated rules are merely big time annoyances, but I consider marked cards in the deck to be effective game-breakers, or at least well beyond major annoyances. YMMV.
