Hi guys just wanted to ask if you could check this:

I was just having a look through the components making sure that we are not missing any disease cubes (we dropped a few on the floor when putting stuff back after our last game) and I noticed our copy has an extra black disease cube.

Does anyone else have an extra black (or any other colour) cube?

According to the rules, we are supposed to have 24 cubes of each colour but in our box there are 25 black cubes.

Luckily this hasn't affected our games so far (only played January and February) as we never ran that low on cubes but still. shake

I guess I should take the extra one out. Unless it's in there for a reason (no spoilers please)

The game is designed to have exactly 24 cubes of each color. Running out of cubes is a fail condition for the game? You should remove the extra cube. It is packaging mistake.

Yes - you're supposed to have 24.

Now you're checking such things, it's also worth making sure you have all the right player and infection cards.

Being paranoid, I made sure of such things during an initial unboxing of my set before I gathered players for the first game.

Yes I've just checked the rest of the components, we seem to have all the cards (or at least in the numbers they should be )

Like John said, probably a packaging error. I've put the extra cube away now. Glad I noticed before it impacted our games in any way.

Receiving the wrong number of cubes seems to be pretty rare, actually.

But people have noted glitches with Box 3, and there's nothing to tell you what it ought to contain, so when the time comes:
Spoiler (click to reveal)
It should contain 38.

I'm not entirely sure how this is not a spoiler. I didn't know there were black cubes....Nobody that starts the game does.

How did you not start the game with 24 each of blue, red, yellow, and black disease cubes for each disease?
