I had been eagerly awaiting the reprinting of The Hobbit: On the Doorstep saga expansion. I just got mine in the mail yesterday. I was going through all the cards when I noticed that my copy of "The Arkenstone" was missing most of the text in the text box. It just says ACTION: and then it goes into the flavor text. It leaves out all the "Attach to a hero" & Raise your threat by X to lower the cost of an ally by X" instructions. Does anyone else have this same problem or has anyone noticed any other card misprints?

Yeah! I just got mine and was unpacking it and noticed the same thing (Arkenstone missing all its non-flavor text). Kind of annoying, especially for a reprint! XD

Have you contacted Fantasy Flight about this matter? I was thinking of buying this over the next few days.

Same problem. Emailed them and got a response that I have to wait for a reprint. Doesn't seem like a quick fix.

Is the replacement Arkenstone card printed with the same quality as FFG's Print-on-demand cards, or the same quality as the regular retail cards?
