Instead of cardboard of similar quality to the one's included in the game, this is made of thick paper... Now that's cheap! shake

Yup, I just received mine yesterday. I tried to roll my magazine (it was contained in a removable clear plastic) to see if the promo is included. I felt nothing and feared that it might came missing. To my surprised, it's actually slipped in one of the pages, and oh my, the qualiy...

It's standard playing card quality - although not cardboard quality, it isn't exactly what I would call 'cheap'.

Really clever thing to roll an envelope clearly marked "Do not Bend"... laugh

This isn't defensible- it should've been a tile of the same quality as all of the other tiles, plain and simple.

Given what you get for the price, yeah it is. There is an expectation that the Spielbox promos match the actual game components. I really could have done a better mock up had I known. Unfortunately, these posts weren't here when I put this on pre-order and had no idea.

And I did the same thing checking the magazine with a slight roll to make sure something was in there. I too felt this copy was missing a component.

hopefully their decision was based on an intended good idea of thinking it would be best to glue this to the base game tile. But then they could have made it a sticker at least. Big disappointment for me.

At a recent tournament I actually thought the US edition had been released with Kebab Shop on the reverse side of the English Fountain - until I realised that we were playing my copy of the game. The board is fully compatible with the rest.
