I was punching the Property tiles when I noticed that the lira values on the front and the back don't match for the tiles valued 5 and 7:


I looked through the rules, and the example on page 5 leads me to believe that the lira value on the front and back of the tiles should be identical - is this interpretation correct? blush (If this is in fact an error, I assume it was an oversight during layout, where the image on the back of the punch sheets should have been 'reversed'.)

Unfortunately that looks like an error.

Aw, crap. Oh well, it seems pretty easy to deal with in-game hopefully.

Well, I guess human errors happen, especially on a game with this amount of components.

Still a little bit unfortunate for people who like owning a 'flawless' game.

Damn. That is absolutely an error. I checked the proofs very carefully, but apparently not carefully enough. I'm really sorry about that.

Well, if there's any small consolation, it is only an issue for games of 4-6 players. For games with 1-3 players, you can take one of the extra tiles and swap it for one with the right value.

Or, in a 2-player game, just give both players three 6-value fields. That way the fields have base game values again but can still be sold/rebought without having to swap in the correct tiles.

hmm a simple sticker would appear to be a helpful fix for this, maybe draft up a image? Or maybe christmas elfs can have panda print some stickers? not sure but doesn't appear to be a huge deal.

I feel terrible about this--I was worried that it would happen, as the tiles had to align perfectly, and somehow I missed it in my proof review. I'm looking into what happened and though I can't send replacement tiles to 9000 people, I'm going to try to find a way to get them out there (maybe in KS copies of Between Two Cities).

I'd think 2 stickers would be the best/quickest fix with new tiles being a longer term solution.

Talk about a "Legacy" type solution!

It would be quite "tongue in cheek" stickers that actually cross out the old value like this,

$7 New price --> $5

And vice versa

You know, supply and demand!

I think you mentioned that the BGG store will have some Euphoria revised cards for sale.

If so, maybe they can be included with that along with something else fun for Tuscany.

The quickest fix is getting a pencil and writing the correct values on the tiles. Yeah, that's like saying 'Jehova', but trust me it only hurts a second

As others have said stickers work well, especially on such a minor issue.
Splotter simply uploaded stickers to print off for an error in the latest Roads & Boats print, seriously if they are decent images you can barely tell the difference.

Here's the ones I did for R&B

Thanks guys. I like the sticker solution, and people could fix it in other ways...it's just that I know what went into making Tuscany, and more than any other game I made, I wanted it to be pristine and perfect. You all deserve better.

So, provide updated tiles/stickers with the next expansion or BGG promo?

Don't only include them with another game KS, please. Unless I could pledge $1 just to get the corrected tiles/stickers for Tuscany or something.

No problem from my perspective. It's really all about the fun of the game to me. It's an incredible package regardless of this.

Thanks!

Connor: There will be no future Tuscany/Viticulture expansions. I would send them to the BGG store in addition to including them in our next game just like I did for the updated Euphoria recruit cards.

Seems like a great solution for all parties.

For anyone who hasn't got sticker sheet to hand or simply uncomfortable printing off stickers, I can do this to anyone in UK for cost of a stamp.

Jamey no worries... A sticker will solve this issue just fine.

Still very excited to receiving the game any day now, that will not be spoiled by a minor error like this.

Thanks Sven, I appreciate your understanding. It's somewhat helpful that it's very rare for a player to buy back a property after selling it in Tuscany.
