Inventory in the rule book says there should be 12 Crash Salvage Boards, but I only have 9. Is this a misprint in the rules?

I have:
Hull Sheet Metal
Gathered But Unused Power Crystals
Sonic Sensors
Turret Cannon
Crate of Ammo and Enery (mispelled on board?) sticks
Energy Transmitter
Supply Cache
Engine
Homing Beacon

The kickstarter stretch goals showed scenerio card images that were reached. They were:

Homing Beacon Destroyed
Engine Code Meltdown
Diesel Down
Crew is Incapacitated


None of those were in the scenarios included in the game. Were they scrapped for different scenarios? Maybe to be included in a future expansion? Just curious.

I was also curious about this since I did an inventory. I was also wondering about the miniatures. When compared to the cardboard chits, I seem to have an extra leader, scout, scavenger, brute and tunneler, and am missing 5 slashers.

The alien miniatures were addressed in a recent Backer's Update:

Mr. B Games wrote:
Zothren Expansion - Due to an issue with sculpts, we had to re-arrange the molds to make the minis work properly, but in the end wound up only doing a slight variation on the mini counts (don't worry you got everything promised - just 5 less slashers and 1 more of each specialist zothren - so a 5 for 5 swap). We also threw in a new scenario and some cool tokens to make up for the change. Backers of this expansion will find 2 boxes inside their reward box. 1 in a color "Zothren Expansion" box, and the other in a plain brown box marked Zothren Expansion B. Backers saw a 36-40% discount off MSRP depending on the level they backed (we advertised at least 25% and were able to make that deal even sweeter in the end).


The other items though I'm not sure about, and am slightly curious about as well. Though I'm certainly pleased with what I did get already.

There were scenario changes as well but he claimed they were all there. He even posted that they put another one in the core set so there should be 5 but it also almost sounds like he did not add the extra bonus scenarios, and there are now just 5 total scenarios in the box. He messed with the actual numbers in the box on pretty much everything so it's hard to know what is actually supposed to be there.

You can read this thread on what happened if you weren't paying attention: http://www.boardgamegeek.com/thread/1202867/kickstarter-edit...

Yeah, 5 in the box, and 1 more if you got the expansion. I'm actually very happy with what I got and have no problems with the decisions made (though others do). It was more of a curiosity question as to if those particular scenarios shown on the kickstarter will come out at a later time, or if they were changed after playtesting, etc.

My bigger concern is the discrepancy between the inventory count of the salvage boards listed in the rules versus what came in the game box. I have a feeling the rules are a misprint, which is fine, but I just want clarification.

We unlocked 4 via KS but put 5 in the core set, and 1 in the zothren expansion.

Hey Justin,

Yea I was going to crack one this weekend and play it then reply. Pretty sure the 12 board count is the 9 salvage boards, 1 blank, gestation board and rescue ship board but need to verify.

For the scenarios, we renamed them to fit the situations a little better after playtesting/tweeking.

Ahh, that seems the case, since the gestation board and the rescue ship board are not listed in the component inventory. Thanks.

One final question: What happened to the engraved action dice? That was a stretch goal hit, and the updates said that we were getting them, but my action dice are screened. I couldn't find any update about issues with engraving...

They are included in the core game. They are engraved and painted white. No changes.

Just got home and rechecked. You are right. The engraving is not very deep (it felt smooth on first touch) which was why I asked the question. I actually like the engraving depth a lot! It allowed fine detail for the images, with the protection of engraving. Overall, very happy with the production. Thanks, Sean!
