Is there a card manifest of the Events somewhere? My Athenian deck seems to be short 3 cards, and they seem to be all events (the other counts add up with the numbers on the reference sheets). Unfortunately the Event cards don't seem to be enumerated anywhere, unlike the Prepare cards.

There should be five Athenian event cards; here they are.

(This is taken from a manifest Ian sent me when I was running a pre-release Play by Forum game, so I guess there is a chance it isn't final, but I would be surprised if there were any changes. Ian, I'm assuming that now the game is out you won't mind me posting this. If you do mind, let me know and I'll take it down.)

Ancient ally, sister democracy If there is a friendly Hoplite or Bribery token in Argos, place a City and a Hoplite in Argos.

How are we to cure these folk of their warlike frenzy? Every power must discard 1 card from its draw deck. Gain 2 Victory Points.

Helots attracted to the occupation of Pylos If there is a friendly Hoplite or Bribery token in Messenia, place a City in Messenia.

Surrender of the Spartan army in Sphacteria Remove an enemy Hoplite in Messenia; then muster a Hoplite in Messenia.

Nine out of the ten Lacedaemonian ships lost at Arginusae Muster a Trireme in or adjacent to the Icarian Sea; then battle the Icarian Sea or an adjacent Sea space.

You have to contact PSC for replacements. I'm the designer on this one.

Already done. But I'd like to make up a few proxies so I can play while I wait

It's probably a silly question, but have you checked in the other decks? When I unwrapped my cards the two packs of cards were split such that one pack contained two colours except all but about 3 cards, which were in the deck with the other two colours. Preumably done to make the two packs equal size, but it may at first glance appear that they are missing.

Yeah, I did notice that. Cards have been double-inventoried and there are definitively 3 missing. About half of my Athenian deck was also mis-cut, one (and only one) of the corners was square and not rounded. Definitely something went awry with my copy.

Ian, PSC is taking their time to respond. This isn't so much of a complaint, just a statement, because I expect it. Judging from other Kickstarter experiences in the past (Generic, not PSG), PSG will probably finish shipping to everybody. Then take a week off. THEN ship replacement copies. Which means I get a full game in like 3 weeks.

Which is painful because it looks super awesome. It was easier to be patient when I didn't have the box in front of me. Must be patient. Must be Patient!!

PSC actually replied to my request very quickly (it was actually within just a few minutes, since I was up late). No idea when I'll get the cards though My understanding was that the Kickstarter copies were air shipped to get them out in time so I don't know how many replacement parts are available.

In my case I can proxy up a few cards to make the game playable.

It does seem like PSC's quality control issues continue rather than being limited to TGW. I bought into this KS and two others (Hold the Line and Battle of Britain) . . . I will definitely reserve judgement till myself and a larger portion of the customer base have their copies, but so far my confidence is not high.

Well that's frustrating then. Because I haven't heard anything from PSC at all.

Will from PSC just left back for the UK this morning from GenCon.

I'm pretty sure that within a few days he'll get back to everyone who has emailed him.

As someone who struggles with the many ways people contact me, I think the right answer is to email them. I have no idea what the normal response time in the game world is. I try to answer right away, but sometimes between BGG, FB, KS, email it's hard to organize.

But I'm sure it will all be sorted shortly. I know in the e-world of immediate response even a few hours seems like forever.

@Felix Rodriguez - yes Gencon, with making sure all the VoD Kickstarter shipping was done before I got to Gencon has kept a small company very busy. I haven't had any messages from you? Best point of contact to me is info@theplasticsoldiercompany.co.uk

Strange. I messaged you in both bgg and kickstarter. Just sent you e-mail.

Too many ways to contact people!

This is not an individual case. My copy also lacks three event cards in the Athen deck.
My three missing cards (according to the above manifest) are:
How are we to cure these folk of their warlike frenzy?
Helots attracted to the occupation of Pylos
Surrender of the Spartan army in Sphacteria

I've just got back off holiday and opened the game which was waiting for me.

I appear to have the correct number of cards for each faction EXCEPT the Corinthian (purple) deck, which has only 42 cards instead of 43.

In that deck I have:

Event cards: 8
Status cards: 4
Prepare cards: 17
Muster Trireme: 4
Muster hoplite: 4
Sea battle: 2
Land battle : 3

Without a card manifest / card numbering, it's of course impossible to tell which one I'm missing.

I'd strongly recommend PSC puts numbers on the cards in any future printing, or for other games.

You seem to be short one Sea Battle according to the Player Mat shown in this PBF thread.

I agree about the card numbering, though.

Well, after contacting PSC I received the missing card yesterday - that represents excellent service in my opinion.
