I was doing a routine component check, but ran across several issues, at least according to the count in the rulebook.

I have

- 6 mortgage tokens, instead of 10
- 20 oscars vote tokens, instead of 7
- 52 script cards, instead of 50
- 79 event cards, instead of 80
- 72 actor cards, instead of 70
- 25 of all money denominators, instead of 50

Now, all the Essen copies (one of which I bought) were sold open, meaning with no shrinkwrap, but the components were unpunched and the cards were in tight bags.

Anyone else has the same issues? I would appreciate any feedback either from other Essen-goers or the publisher.

Hey Luca, thx a million! I suppose you didn't get your copy in Essen.

I also got in touch with the publisher through facebook.

It seems the Essen copies were stripped of some of the money denominators. The answer I got was they had to "reduce bills to lighten the overall weight for reasons pakaging". Now this is a bit disappointing, as I wouldn't want to ran out of money bills during my games. We were supposed to get 50 bills of each, we got less in terms of components, but noone told us anything in Essen.
I suppose they had to rearrange the components in the Essen copies (maybe they received half of the money bills of what they needed for the Essen copies?), hence the copies weren't shrinkwrapped. I'm still waiting for an answer to that.

Anyway, I made a list of my Events cards, I would greatly appreciate it if you could compare yours with mine and help me locate the missing one.

I have:

2x Lovely Lovebirds
2x I'm getting married tomorrow
1x More powerful than man
2x You're fired
1x You're a Commie
1x Manhattan project
1x And... he's gay
1x Stars Enlist
1x Peace
1x You're a Nazi
1x Patriotic support
1x Pearl Harbor war
2x FBI's public enemy
2x people's choice
1x Spontaneous combustion
1x academy awards
1x beautiful and damned
2x the Producer
2x scenographer
3x Pie fight
3x Director of photography
2x assistan director
3x Lighting technician
2x Writer's block
2x TV what a wonderful thing
1x I'm taking a year off
1x Party on the beach
1x the second movie is always the hardest
1x the game theory has been developed
1x Special Effects
1x Slow Motion
1x The promising composer
2x Casting Director
3x Editor
3x Costume Designer
3x Make-up artist
2x Mafia warning
1x Checkmate for the FBI
3x Hic! I'm sowwy, where's the towlet? Hic!
1x 2nd unit director

2x Clumsy prompting
1x the Lumberjack
1x the chariot race
2x Mafia puts mone y on Hollywood
2x Boss's babe
2x What a good guy
1x Accident on set

EDIT: I should add, the publisher was very responsive on Facebook. They said they would fix any problems I have with my copy.

I have the same components as Luca except for the Actors. I have 69 base "Actor Cards" (instead of 70), plus 2 promo "Actor Cards" (Teresa Wright & Irene Dunne). cry

Besides I read in the "Script Cards" than Clark Gable and Vincent Price should be among the "Actor Cards". Do you have these cards?

I just went to check my copy, English version got in Essen

Character I have 70 + 2 Promos
Events I have 80
Scripts I have 50 + 2 Promos

so everything alright here

The problems are in the money:
10.000 have 25
50.000 have 23
100.000 have 26
500.000 have 25

Tokens:
Oscar Tokens have 20 instead of 7
Mafia Tokens have 4 instead of 7
Mortage Tokens have 6 instead of 10

and one of the punchout sheets, the one with the Girls, Boys, Children, Adult male and female is in not very good condition, I think it was pressed against the backside of another sheet and the tokens are a bit damaged with black ink, not that it makes the game unplayable but it sure makes it look bad

Also, I have some character cards that look to be out of focus, "shaken" or the box text isn't quite lined up (it shows a white border around the name and that means the card is off-center), those are:
- Charles Chaplin
- Elia Kazan
- Ernest Lubitsch
- John Ford
- Laurence Olivier
- Martha Raye
- Michael Curtiz
- Raoul Walsh
- Wallace Ford

Another problem I notice while going through the cards is that Signe Hasso has on the Star Rating 4 White Stars, they are almost imperceptible... I suppose this is an error and should be 4 golden stars, right?


Does anyone else have these problem with their cards?

Regarding the white stars, I asked during our demo, because I had a character like that, and he said that it's like if he had no stars at all, being white means that he has 0 stars..

At least that's what he told me at the time.

Sent an email to them yesterday night and when I woke up I had a reply, a bit of a weird English but it clarifies some points:

"in Edition English we intentionally changed some amount compared to the very first edition of Italian. The manual, unfortunately, has not been updated during translation.
Are errors which repare in the next reprints and we will charge the faq on our website and on major blogs and sites (first BoardGameGeek)
Tokens are in the correct number. We increased to 20 tokens vote because the early feedback we realized that there were too few.
We reduced the token loan because in fact remain mostly unused and used their spaces on the die of the press for the token vote.
Tokens mafia are only 4 because only need one for each player or is mob or is not.
"

So it seems the money is the only thing really wrong about the components...


Can you guys check your character cards to see if you have the same problem as I have in some of the cards?

Thanks

I also had this issue with the punchout sheets (picked from essen).
Our group of 4 was divided as to whether it was an intentional "artwork" of the tokens or a print error.

That.was.sad.

You don't have the rulebook?

It looks like you have everything right except the money...

You didn't mention any other tokens but the Mortage ones... don't you have more tokens? And Theme Sets, and Special Room Tiles to add to your player board?

I just opened my copy of the producer, only to check the components. (A bit late I know. I bought the English version at Essen (the last copy!).

So here are my "issues".

Vincent Price: yes, Clark Gable no

The 10.000's are off-centre except 4 of them. They have a slightly different color as well (a little less green).

Have 25 of all the denominators.

I have the 80 events, 52 scripts, and 72 actors.

With the actors cards, I have no shaken cards, but you can see, that some are 1/2 mm off compared to normal cards. So still providing the grey edge, but some slightly more or slightly less. If they shifted they shifted to the right, so I don't have the white borders. Luckily the backsides are all aligned perfectly.

And however not a big issue, but the colors of the brown areas with the actors cards names are slightly different as well. Some darker, some lighter. (Not on the backside though)

And 2 actor cards had some cutting issues (however not seeable on the backside)showing a slight dent on the right side of the front of the card (Orson Welles and Claude Rains)

Regarding the chips/tokens, with me it's the same issue, as mentioned before, with black marks on the boys, girls, ladies and icecream.

Regards,

Anton

I've only had success getting to them through their facebook page. They were kind of slow and not extremely prompt in their communication, but eventually they did get back to me and sent what was missing. I think all in all it took a bit more than a month.
