I preorded VotK:LR over a month ago and today I found a pleasant surprise on my doorstep. I immediately unpacked it and played a solitaire game to get a grip for the new cards.

According to the rulebook the total for a perfect score is 212. However in my play, I entombed all cards without any duplicates and got 174 VPs for set cards (5²+6²+7²+8²), 10 VPs for the starter cards, and finally 14 VPs for the uniques (2+3+4+5). This sums up to 198, not 212.

Am I missing something? Is it a typo?

Seems like you need double the uniques for that; 212-198=14. Weird.

I am covered with shame! You are right. The correct total for a perfect game is 198, not 212.
