We played a game yesterday with the daysides of the hotel boards, and one player got confused in her planning of three red rooms in a row on her bottom right. The middle one is yellow, but with red wallpaper, and the rightmost one is red with yellow wallpaper. Or is it the other way around?

I suspect the room in the middle of the three is yellow and the rightmost red: Then there will be 1 group of 4 rooms and 4 groups of 1 room on each board.

(Regards the Mayfair/Lookout 2015 English ed. and only one of the boards)

I'm guessing no one has heard back on the possibility of getting a mew board? Perhaps just a sticker to correct tis? Otherwise this is my favorite new game of the past few months!

Not sure if this is just my copy but two of my round B and all of my round C Emperor tiles are misprinted with the letter on the back being upside down. It's a complete non-issue as far as gameplay is concerned, but wondered if anyone else had this issue.

Just got my copy, and not surprisingly it's the same as yours (I'd be amazed if everyone's weren't the same). As you say, it makes no difference - unlike the wallpaper thing. I'm going to have to think about how best to deal with that.

I just got GAH a few days ago. What a crazy game! So many choices and things to think about... This is my kind of game! I havent seen the misprinted room colour yet, but if the colour of the door is correct is it really that noticable? Personally when im looking at the groups im looking at colours of doors.

I also noticed that the letters on the reverse of the tiles were upside down. I thougbt there was a mechanical reason for this but judging by what was said above this is a minor msprint.

These kinds of misprints dont bother me if it doesnt affect the game, but this was a very expensive game (just under $80 before taxes in my local stores). I dont understand why its so much because its just cardboard and cubes! If im paying that much i would like the game NOT to be misprinted. I think thats reasonable.

Aside from that this game is excellent!

Yup, same here. Not a gameplay issue, but I did notice.

I bought this game at GenCon 2017 and my boards and Emperor tiles are fine. I guess they have now fixed these issues.
