Are all of your cards linen finish? (Particularly buildings)



Do your wooden components look like the top set or bottom set?



Are your player boards card stock or thick cardboard?

Thanks in advance!

I have the Stronghold edition.

- All cards are linen finish.

- Wooden components look like the top (black) set.

- Player boards are card stock. Tiles that go on them are thick cardboard.

Player boards are the only thing i would quibble about.

Hmm, should I sell my quined base game to get the stronghold base game or sell my quined base game and stronghold expansion? That is the question.

The answer depends on the answer to another question: do you want to play this game or not? :-)

Or just keep both. Does the difference of the wooden pieces really bother you? The cards are only shuffeld once in the whole game and after that are lying face up on the table and if you sleeve it, the linen finish doesn't matter. I would keep it.

The player components aren't the biggest deal for me since I don't anticipate playing with 5 very often, if at all. The card quality is more of the issue. I guess I could get opaque backed sleeves, but between having to buy a card upgrade pack and still needing sleeves is pretty annoying. I would have paid an extra euro/dollar or whatever for the buildings to have matched as well.
