I want to give a well deserved thumbs up to Surprised Stare (Tara Seat of Kings) for their excellent customer service. I purchased a copy of Tara Seat of Kings at Essen and when I opened it up here back in the USA I discovered that the "king" pieces were missing. Within a week of my notifying them by email I have received the replacement pieces in the mail.
And while I am at it, I must also mention the wonderful crew they had as Essen who did a great job explaining their games and providing play sessions. It was a big factor in my purchase.
