Just opened this from CSI and the cards weren't shrink wrapped but held together by magic tape... It's late so I didn't see if they are damaged or see if I am missing something but this seemed really odd to me.

Also, check if you have all the cards - there is a card list in the files section you can check against. If there are objective cards you can't find, double-check both sides of the black cards that are "empty". The objective cards can be hiding there since they have a similar back, IIRC.

I got both the Alien and Predator games from CSI at the same time, Alien was using magic tape for the cards so I was confused when I saw Predator used shrink wrap for the cards... not sure why they would use different methods of holding the cards together

Yeah, I bought my copy of LE: Alien a week ago or so, and they were just held together with magic tape.

Took me the better part of an hour, but I sorted them all and checked to see if I had everything, and it's complete. Considering how many people are missing cards, I would definitely recommend you do that as well.

I'm betting that someone was manually checking all the cards were in the box before dispatch.

Mine was shrink wrapped.

Just got my copy, all nicely taped. 1 solid hour later all present and correct. Sleeving is going to be an event!

Did you get the 50 or so spare blank cards as well?

My shrink wrapped copy came with all the cards, the dividers and an extra 50 or so blank cards that I could create my own custom cards with.
