So, with the unfortunate number of errata'd cards, it took the wind out of my sails for playing. I don't sleeve, but I've thought about using a Print-n-Play service to get some cards that I can insert into the deck until next year when official fixed cards are released, and finally get this to the table. Problem is, I don't have very much experience with those services. I realize that the cards won't be the same, but a reasonable facsimile would be fine for now. Does anyone know of a high quality PnP service, and what weight and finish I'd need for the cards?

It seems super complicated. If you're going to those lengths, why not just put a big asterisk on each card with errata, with a Sharpie, and then consult a printed list of corrections?

Before you get all worked up about the errata, you should look at it. It's really minor. Like Desecrated Shrine wound up as Desecrated Temple on one card, but there is no Desecrated Temple in the game so it's a no-brainer, stuff like that.

For the few cards where it matters to actual gameplay, I was able to add most of the corrections directly to the card with a black inked pen. I play my games to play them not to turn them into shrines and I intend on keeping this game so I didn't mind doing it.

I don't sleeve games either, but I'm playing this one so much I made an exception and now with the PNP errata added to the sleeve, I can't tell the difference. This is such a minor issue.

I'll probably end up penning in some, but much of it is far from minor. I like having nice-looking cards, hence the question.

Doesn't mixing print-and-play cards with the printed cards already rule that out?

I'd rather have a slightly different feeling card than a marked up one. I also know there are some very high-quality PnP services, but do not know which ones they may be which, again, is why I posted a thread specifically asking for that.

OK, I think you dramatically overestimate the quality and match that can be achieved with print-on-demand. Of course you should go ahead and see what you can get and maybe you will be happier with it than with marked-up cards. But I would be very surprised.

You would be hard press to find a printer that would match the original game. Personally I really don't find errata to be that overwhelming. There are only a few cards and many of them are set up cards. Since they promise to do errata, putting a little mark to denote errata card is should be fine may be in pencil if it bother you. (I know I used to be the same way with my OCD)

I don't sleeve most of my card game either but I have been playing this game quite a bit and lately I am thinking may be I should.

Thanks. I have the important ones marked, so I'll just wait I think. The only super annoying one is the Utility Belt, which I had to add a sentence to.

Turns out Esseb did touch the flag. Don't tell him I said so though.

I played with the arcaneweave bow as a bow for ages until I noticed that that it claimed to actually be a quiver.. I then found the list of errata and just carried on using it as a bow.

Proper versions of the card would be nice though.
