I was super excited for the new edition. Pre-ordered it, picked it up at Essen, got to the hotel room and opened it and... missing tokens.
Not one or two, but 13 total, in different categories. cry

Anyone else got similar problems?

I sent an email to Portal. I hope they fix it fast because I need to get this played

UPDATE: turns out the missing black disks and red wound are a typo in the rulebook, not actually missing. As for the green disk and wooden token I had them replaced by Portal at Essen

That's scary. I'm watching this intently to see if anyone else has it. :O

I have a Z-Man version. I've yet to play it because I can't make any sense of the rules and only about 75% of the various pieces match the shape/color of pieces that are supposed to be in the box. Huge waste of money.

In your world, I have another name. You must learn to know me by it. That was the very reason why you were brought to Narnia, that by knowing me here for a little, you may know me better there.

I agree that even the ZMAN rulebook is poorly done (mostly just a mess), and I too remember the minor confusion with the tall shape of the cylinders in the rulebook vs. the squat shape of the cylinders (discs) in the game. Hardly worthy of being condemned for those flaws. There's still a gem of a game within.

How much are you hoping to get for your "huge waste of money?" (assuming you'll be parting with it)

Some problem here. Rulebook had 20 black disks and 10 white. I'm having 15 of both. Also missing 1 red wound marker.

I've got the same problem, 5 wound tokens and 15 white/black.

Any idea if this was a manual misprint? I've also got two tokens which aren't mentioned in the manual. A bag and basket. Anyone has any clue about those?

And another question, how do you know what version it is (zman or portal). I've got portal contact info at the bottom. So thinking about sending them an e-mail.

Exactly the same problem. Twice.
I went to their booth and exchanged my previous copy with a new one and the new one had the same problem (black/white discs and red wound). They then replaced the missing tokens

I think there may be some confusion in this thread. The ZMAN rulebook doesn't specify how many cubes there are of any color. I have the ZMAN edition (the brown box with "ZMAN Games" printed clearly on it), and I too have 15 black and 15 white plastic cubes.

The newly released Portal edition (the one pictured on the game's main page) rulebook does specify how many cubes there are of each type and color. And it does read 20 black plastic cubes and 10 white plastic cubes. As an experienced player, I can tell you that this number certainly makes more sense for how many you may need for various things throughout the game, as the rules instruct you to use them.

Despite the rules instructing me to use black cubes to mark things like roof, palisade, and weapon level, I've always used the white ones. I also use the white ones to mark morale, remaining uses on starting items, and remaining uses on treasure cards. As a result, I have plenty of black cubes to mark inventions, blocked food/wood sources, etc. The 15 white/15 black count existing in the ZMAN edition doesn't make the game less playable AT ALL. If this number remains the same in the newest edition, then they had the right idea when they wrote the rulebook. Sounds like they may have just went with the count found in the ZMAN edition.

Okay I also have only 5 red cubes and 15 and 15 black and white discs. Should have checked while at Spiel.

Even after all of these various iterations of the game over several years, they STILL can't get it right. This confirms my resolve to never again waste my money on a game by these swindlers.

Assuming this is the English version, it sounds like this will be a trend?

I guess the question is whether this impacts the game in any way, or whether it is essentially a parts list errata.

Don't worry. I think it's misprint in instruction, not a lack of components. In Polish GotY edition there was 5 wound tokens and 15/15 black/white markers. You don't need any more.

Yeah I got a very descriptive reply from portal games
"I am sorry for problems. There is a mistake in a rule book"

So I guess we don't have to worry

Same Problem, but I guess it's just a misprint, no biggie.

15 black disks (instead of 20)
15 white disks (instead of 10)
5 red cubes (instead of 6)

I got a response from Portal as well. It's a misprint. 5/15/15 is correct.

In other words, after many versions, updates, and reprints they *still* can't be bothered to adequately proofread the product before selling it.

Have to admit my surprise and disappointment... I sold off my Z-man version to get the fully revised one. Yet, it's barely out and already new stuff detected. Let's see if anything else pops up...
