Oh you seekers of the new who run terrified from history into the clutches of an eternal life where no electric shaver can be built to last.

    Pretty much. I'd order a new copy and ask for a refund on the misprinted one.

Well it is a problem, BUT you can solve it by buying some black backed sleeves.

Not completely:

You can contact the publisher and more than likely they will send replacements.

You could also sleeve the cards in opaque back sleeves

I would contact the publisher, if its an official copy, they should replace it for you. Especially if you have a receipt. If the publisher won't make it right, I would take it back to the retailer and return or exchange it.

If somehow you bought it from a disresputable seller, who sold you a knockoff copy, you might be out of luck.. Although, I once recieved a knockoff copy of Cockroach Poker from an Amazon Reseller, the cards were cheaply made and some cards were missing. I contacted the seller and they refunded my money..

If all else fails, you might be able to put the cards inside sleeves which have non-transparent backs. Then you won't be able to tell the difference..

You're not overreacting! If the difference is enough that you can tell how many of the green-or-maybe-blue cards your opponent is holding, that changes the game quite a bit.

Contact Z-Man, explain what happened, ask if they will replace the cards.

You could also solve the problem of a missing piece by carving your own... but you shouldn't have to. If the product you bought is defective then you should be entitled to a replacement.
