I was starting to sort out the cards from the character add on pack and started to notice a huge difference in the card backs. Then I noticed a few cards from the base set with the same issue. There are actually about 3 or 4 different shades on the backs! Am I missing something, or is this a problem. Anyone else have this problem. I haven't seen a thread about this yet.

I've noticed very minor shading shifts, mainly the yellowed parchment effect is a little lighter on some cards but I haven't attributed it to one pack or another (mainly so I won't give myself information that would gain advantage - inadvertently cheat, that is). I just sleeved all mine so I'll never truly know.

I've noticed minor variations on the fronts, but nothing I would call "huge". I haven't noticed any differences on the backs. I believe there was one thread about this early on, but it doesn't seem to be a common issue. If it's really that bad, you should probably contact Paizo; it sounds like you might need replacement cards.

I noticed it; I didn't create a thread, but I did mention it in another thread about a printing error. Seems like some aren't bothered by it, but to me it's practically night and day. I shuffle with my eyes closed so I don't subliminally match the back color of the top card to the one I'm trying to shuffle in.

Both the hue and the sharpness of the printing varies wildly. I didn't want to sleeve this collection because sleeves don't really fit in the box, but once we see how the next couple packs turn out, I may have to.

Yes, I have noticed this too. Some of the card backs are a bit lighter (usually seem to be blessings from my experience so far, but perhaps they are from the character expansion pack... I didn't think to check that).

Also, less importantly, the shading of the front of the cards varies. I noticed this last night when I was clearing up - some of the items' shading in the top bar is almost the same colour as some of the allies' shading.

It's enough to be noticable and most annoying when you get a villain and a blessing with different coloured backs when the villain runs away. You can kind of see where he's gone which is a bit of a spoiler.

Mine are certainly not anything like that; if they were, I would definitely contact Paizo.

I have the same problem. Mostly with Blessing Cards from the Base Set, but also some Monster Cards from the Base Set. I sent Paizo an email on the weekend asking for replacements but have not yet heard back (it's only been a day though).

Definitely....different shades on the backs of the cards.

I also had a ripped card and some with white spots on the backs of them. I have contacted Paizo about these cards though.

I just wanted to post a follow up to the problem...

I contacted Paizo through email, and got a response within a day. I explained the problem and gave a list of the misprinted cards, about 40 total, which I also noticed where all from the base set.

Just now I got a response stating that they are sending me a whole new copy of the base set, plus the 2 promo cards, that I never had a chance to get! That is great customer service!!

Just wanted to let you guys know.

Good to hear! Maybe this weekend I can find time to comb through mine - see how widespread the problem is or if I'm just being picky. If I feel like I can't deal with it, I'll let them know.

Glad you got it worked out.
