Is there a thread of known errors etc. that are in the Essen releases at the fair? By that I mean misprints, missing items, printing/punching issues such as 'wet'cardboard. Worth knowing to decide to hold off or jump on the new.
Thanks.

There's some issues with the English version of Cottage Garden. There's a few mistranslations in the rulebook and a mistake on the gameboard but you get a sheet with stickers to fix it.

Edit: Noticed this while unboxing: the cardbacks for Unusual Suspects and the Burn After Playing expansion are different. It doesn't matter in the gameplay but it would have been nice if they would be the same. I can't believe the publishers didn't care or didn't notice.

Looks like Mystic Vale from AEG has inlays that don't go with the content:

and the board of Round House is slightly (milimeters) to long and doesn't fit the box.
but they give you their first expansion for free and it doesn't really bother me.

I thinks it's charming how they dealt with the mistake. Besides the stickers there's a cute paragraph describing how the cat was to blame, plus a picture of the supposed culprit.
