Just to let everyone know, there is a printing error where the tiles are misaligned. I bought my copy from the BGG store and asked them about it; they commented that:

It was just recently brought to our attention. The publishers suggest drawing the tiles from a black bag. We are updating the store website to let everyone know the issue with this promo.

They also offered me a refund if I posted it back, but it's not worth it from the UK.

Mine are also really off-center. The monument in particular is very conspicuous, because its back has no border at all on the right side or the bottom. It seems to be variable: a friend of mine got one that (while a bit off) was not nearly so bad.

It's not that big an issue because you only have to draw them once, at the start of the game, and you can just draw them while looking away to make sure you don't see, but it is a disappointment.

My copy was fine, haven't tried #2, waiting to see if anyone posts a picture as to how poorly aligned they are.

Mine was fine, or else I can’t tell what this problem is. Both mine (#1 and #2) seem fine to me in all respects.

I'll try to get a picture of mine posted soon. (Should have thought of that myself.)

Or how about you put them in a ziplock bag, close your eyes and hand out the two tiles. It's unfortunate but not a deal breaker for me.

I wouldn't mind picking up promo #2 but hearing that some are misaligned not sure I want to gamble the $ for it. I know it may not be a big deal, but not drawing from a bag. I'd rather go without one tile...

Update: I gambled and ordered promo #2, it was fine.

For what it's worth, I recently ordered a couple copies of Promo 1 and Promo 2. The BGG Store still has the disclaimer about the printing error, but I found neither of my Promo 2s to really have that big of a problem. One was indistinguishable from the tiles of the base game while the other was slightly off, but barely noticeable. Seems to be a lot of variance among experiences here.
