Retail version has 2 power dials, some other versions have 3 extra ones so that each faction has their own.

The white clips are to hold the extension board to the main map board, but they are not really necessary and may in fact damage the boards.

Thanks, we just answered this question for you when you posted it on Kickstarter. The rulebook is correct, as that list does not include promo components, and 3 of the dials are promos. Update 36 details the use of the clips (they're to attach the extended board--if you have it--to the main board).

If you kickstarted, you get a power dial for each faction. You only need two, and that is what comes in the base game. This lets each faction have their own dial.

The clips are optional to secure the game board to the extension.

Clips are to clip the 2 board sections together - this was included in all copies even if you didn't ge the board extension. Pretty sure they included 5 dials with the game as a stretch goal at some point.

EDIT - Super ninja'd.

Ah, Thanks Jamey.. I was trying to look for the info in the rule book, but I guess I have to search on the KS page..

Thanks again for all folks who answered my questions

So 12 encounter tokens come with the game, but I only see 11 hexes for them... Am I just missing a spot on the board or do we have a spare just in case?

This was just throwing me off and I spent too long scanning the board lol

There are 28 encounter cards in the retail game, and there are 8 promo encounter cards for a total of 36. Unless I'm mistaken, I don't think the number of promo cards is listed in the rulebook--where do you see 4?

Probably the "what you get" summary on the KS campaign page.

That's true, it does say 4 there, as I added 4 extra cards after the campaign was over (I can't edit the page at that point). This page shows the final components: http://stonemaiergames.com/buy-scythe/
