To Titanforge Games,

I have read that you are fixing the translation issues (to English) in the rulesbook for Lobotomy, and will offer a properly translated PDF. That is great news. HOWEVER, if there are translation issues on the playing cards, character sheets, etc, PLEASE offer those as properly translated PDFs as well! This is vital for English speakers to enjoy the game (or even play it properly). This is an absolute must, and I hope you are planning to offer such PDFs in a timely manner for all of us English-speaking backers.

Please kindly respond to this post in this thread.

Thank you very much.

+1 to that.

I am planning to buy a copy in Essen, it all depends on if TFG will communicate about what is wrong with it right now (just rules? cards? scenarios?) and what is planned to fix it.

As of now, only the rules seem to have a plan to be fixed – if that is all, and no other components are affected, it's fine with me.

Please respond, I really want to buy this game.

I'd rather have a glimpse on a few cards before buying the game.

Latest update on KS: The game will be at Essen with 5 copies "to show to the backers" not before saturday.

So there is no hurry. Seems that neither pick ups nor sales will happen right now... and I am there on Thursday, so I'll spend the budget elsewhere!

Another one bites the dust.

For now, at least.
It is ok with me... prevents me from buying it despite the possible errors, now it's time to see some reviews first.
Hope it turns out well!

I 100% disagree. If there's translation errors on the cards, we need new ones, not PDFs. Game components need to be fixed, not have reams and reams of paper produced that you have to check back to for everything while you play.

I agree and I don't mind waiting (a bit) for them

To be fair, the latest update is actually letting us know that they *may* not have the games due to shipping issues. If everything runs smoothly, they hope to have them for Saturday and Sunday. They were really specific about the details.

The five boxes of games are a separate shipment they expect to have, expecting them to not have to deal with customs.

So they may still have the full shipment - or they may not. They will hopefully have at least the five games - or they may not. How's your shipping track record?

I don't have a dime in this dollar, but if they release PDFs of the cards, you can always do paste-ups with some sticker paper. Better that than nothing.

Joe is right, I did not express it correctly because I interpreted it as super-unlikely that the larger load of games will ever reach Essen. They seemed to having made sure that 5 are there on Saturday, though.

Other than that, PDF cheat sheets or stickers are not an option for me, if the cards are affected by translation errors. New cards or nothing. There is not much info on that right now.

I'm sure they'll come up with something - they'll just need some time to work out what that is

Bad luck for me. Can't be there on the weekend to get my pledge. :-(

I think so too!
I'd be happy to pay for printed corrected cards and rules.
And before you bash me for this, remember that this is a kickstarter project. When we back a project we aren't even guaranteed that we will get anything. Kickstarter is based on trust. Basically we invest in a product and hope that the developer gets it right so it gets produced. And produced correctly. In this case we at least got one of the two.
And lastly, we don't know how bad the rules and cards are. At least I haven't seen anything.
I really hope that the people that are visiting Essen can enlighten us!
No need to panic over rumors.
