Just picked this up from an FLGS in Canada.

This was the 2015 Stronghold English release that came out today.

Looks like the batch (opened two consecutive boxes) included all French cards instead of English. There weren't that many boxes in the batch the FLGS only received around 10 boxes.

Just posting so that people will know to check their cards (at the store before they bring it home!) or in case there's a mass production mix up.

Unfortunately checking the box doesn't work for those of us who pre-ordered with an online retailer. Hope the problem isn't too widespread.

Same here - opened up the box to find 66 French cards. Fortunately, rulebooks were in English.

I'm sure Stronghold will replace the cards.

EDIT: I have exchanged my French cards for English ones. Thought I should mention it as I've had a few requests for the French cards.

These are the first issues we have heard. Certainly strange considering one retailer had two such games. All of my preorders have been out for weeks, and no one has complained about this (and that was a few hundred units).

If you do have this issue, please:
- email Stronghold Games Customer Service (info@...)
- photo the box top and some of the cards in question
- photo/attach the retail receipt to the email.
- send your mailing address too, of course.

We will of course send a new deck of cards.

Sorry for this inconvenience.

Thanks,
Stephen M. Buonocore

Thanks for the response! I agree - it is strange, but I'm sure it'll all get dealt with.

See what I did there? Yup, I'm awesome.

Darn. Our mistake here at Ludo Fact. Cannot say how it happened, but we'll investigate. Also, I will sort it out with Stronghold.
I am sorry.
Frank.

I can't find french copies of the game in Canada yet. Does this mean we are getting it soon?

Edit: Or maybe I could try my luck with an English copy and get the French cards laugh

Edit2: But does this mean there is a good chance of opening English cards with the French copies?

Buy a copy. If they're French, you're good. If they're in English, you can trade them with the above posters that got French. But under no circumstance should you miss out on playing La Granga.

My cards arrived in French as well. Too bad they aren't in Spanish - I could have managed it with those

Time to learn French while I wait for my replacement deck!

Came here after seeing a 1 star review on Amazon in regards to this issue. So, I guess I'll wait.

I just bought my copy off amazon, and I got the right cards - no issues.

Well, Amazon lowered the price, and since I couldn't talk myself into a $100 free shipping order elsewhere, I grabbed a copy, so we'll see.

English cards were included. I will say the depth of the box is on the ridiculous side, so there is definitely a chance for an expansion, or two, or three, etc.

I just got the game a couple weeks ago and when I opened the package I also had the French deck. However I wrote to Stephen B. at Stronghold Games (info@strongholdgames.com) and he sent the English deck to me immediately.

Excellent customer service . . . keep up the good work!

UPDATE: English cards are in hand! I have been so excited to play this since watching Rahdo.

I'm from the Philippines and bought a copy yesterday and...Yep! The cards are in French too. I immediately emailed Strongholds Game but have not received any reply yet.

Seems like I need to wait a little longer to play this game.
