Saw a Youtube video early last week the got me interested enough to order the new Classic reprint. At one point in the video the designer dude said something like "pre-punched, heavy cardstock, duel sided tokens". I received it today and the tokens are just one sided.

Not a game changer but I've played enough chit heavy games to know 50% are always face down and turning them over to find a relevant token is a pain.

Doublesided tokens sounded great. Did the tokens get downgraded or have I got a duff copy?

Mine are double sided, so either you got a bad copy or I got an extra good copy. The box doesn't mention if the counters are single or double sided, neither does the web page.

I bet they replace the counters if you contact them.

I recently got the reprint and my counters are double sided so it sounds like perhaps something is wrong with your copy.

Maybe, or it could be that the two of us somehow got double-sided counters by accident and every single other copy is single-sided.

But I'd send an email to SJ Games and I bet they send you new counters.

Considering the number of different versions over the years, perhaps he got a different, lower quality version.

I remember seeing an unboxing video where they mentioned the double-sided counters were, in fact, an accident (some sort of supplier mis-understanding).

There's a good chance they've corrected that in the second printing, as they'll have to pay for them this time, or are less willing to absorb the cost.

It's possible, my memory might be faulty . Or you might have got some of the last mis-printed counters, if they've decided to use them up first.

It's a conspiracy, I tell you. Fnord.

Thanks for the responses. My version is 3rd printing, March 2015. If the token are supposed to be double sided it's a slight bummer not receiving them. They're a good idea.

They were never supposed to be double-sided. The factory made a mistake in earlier printings of the game.

They are pre-cut, which is nice. (Mine are also double sided.)
