I just got my kickstartered edition of Evolution, and the rulebook says that there should be 24 species boards, while I only have 22 that came with it.

Assuming that the rulebook is correct, should missing two boards be a problem when playing the game? (I emailed Northstargames about it yesterday, not heard back yet though)

No, you never go through all of them anyway.

Or at least, very rarely, and not for long. We had one game where a guy tried to just go nuts with hordes of small creatures, but they quickly died out to starvation and a couple nibbles from a carnivore. The only time it might be an issue is in a 6 player game, but even then it's rare for everyone to keep 4 species alive.

Fyi their customer service pretty swamped, and it took a week to get a response after I contacted them, but they resolved the issue, so don't fret!

What you have isn't game breaking anyways and can easily play for the time being.

Ok, I sent them a note through the webmail on their website, so I'll see what happens. Sounds like I'm definitely two short though, right?

Anyway it seems it's not going to break anything so I can live with it for now. I wonder if it affected others who got the kickstarter version though?

And huh. I've got about 50-60 boardgames (more expansions) and this is the first time I've ever found that stuff was missing or not right with the contents!

If you end up with spares, I'd be happy to take some off of your hands.
