I found a copy in Hong kong.
It seems the base pledge but something seems weird about it.

The president and chancellor markers state : previously elected..
Why? These are the only two markers.


Also the box is pale, there is no information on the box.


This is a chinese counterfit that is sold in bulk for around 10$ a copy.

Re: What's wrong with this copy?
Definitely a knock-off. The policy cards should be smaller than the voting and role cards, the boards should be thicker, as you pointed out there are no normal chancellor and president placards, and the box is wrong. Compare against actual pictures of the game.

Damn! This looks like the copy I bought off eBay the other day. Is it still playable? Am I better off, for playability or out of principle, attempting to get a refund?

Is this copy playable though? A friend ordered it on ebay for me for my birthday. I'm most worried about the policy deck being too big for the policy track.

I'm willing to pay a cheap price for this knock off over a my bad quality print and play if it is playable.

Of course, I'd really prefer to support the game designers, but living in Australia, this game cannot be bought any other way other than on ebay.

The cards are to big but it is doable.
If you can get it cheap it is a step up from pnp.
Who knows when on earth the original will hit retail anyway.

This kind of copy right infringement is a ctime and I would not tolerate it.

Guys, do yourself and all original content creators a favor and report these items on ebay as counterfeit. I ordered this "version" and realized it was fake when it arrived. I requested a full refund, didn't accept the partial refund the seller offered me and will ultimately get my money back from ebay.

Don't support crime!

You wouldn't buy a stolen bike, would you?
