This tile has 8a on both sides with the same ability on both sides, unlike everyone else's. This seems to be an obvious misprint?

Looks like it - I just checked my white and blue 8 buildings and both have an 8a and an 8b side which offer different actions.

Edit since my message may not be clear: my red 8 building also has 8a on both sides, so it suffers from the same misprint.

Here's what I did:
1) take the 8b side of another color (in my case: yellow) and make a color copy on my printer
2) carefully cut out the actual information from the yellow border (including price and point signs in the corners)
3) glue it onto the back side of the red 8a counter

Eggertspiel will make a "sticker" downloadable. And probably more.

Yes, unfortunately, there has been a small misprint in the first edition of Great Western Trail. The red building tile number 8 is missing the b-side. This b-side can be downloaded here:

http://eggertspiele.bplaced.net/Downloads/GWT_Geb_rot_8b.jpg

Also, we will have the tile reprinted. However, this takes some time and the new tiles will not arrive before the end of 2016. As soon as we have received the tiles, anyone with a misprinted tile can get one replacement tile.

Note that this one missing b-side does not impair the playability of the game at all. The b-sides of the building tiles are only supposed to add a little more variety and even without any of them, it would take dozens of games before you have seen and tried it all.

Will this print out to scale? That's why I used "copy another 8b tile on the color printer" approach described above: the copy will automatically have the right size, without the need for potential experiments to find the correct scaling.

Great! I presume you'll publish how to get it (once you have them) on your website (and post a link in this forum).

Indeed! So far we're having fun with the game without feeling the urge to use a 'b'-side at all.

Since the designer and the publisher already posted in this thread - probably not whistle

Question - is it possible to play some tiles with A and some with B? Or would this break the game?

From what I did understand of the rules: you can mix A and B as you like as long as every player has got the same mix (did not read them through yet, but got that from the setup). So that should give quite a lot of possible building setups.

Yes, the rules are quite specific, however I also wonder if each player were to choose his own sides independent of the others - would this unbalance the game?

Just curious - might put some 'faction' specific powers into the game.

I think the rule is a clear hint that the buildings are not 100% balanced. Therefore if every player has a different random set it could be unfair or if experienced players could choose their sides it might trend to a certain set which is stronger than others.

Maybe Alexander or Viktor will give us some insight in this decision...

Very true, Sebastian. We did not try to balance A vs B side.

Besides the red 8 I have found another problem after playing first time with day light not a dark pub. Couple of starting cow cards are marked with blue stains. It affects cards from multiple colors and in different places on the card so it was not stained from playing.

Thank you very much for your message, Viktor.

I will wait for this reprinted tile. Meanwhile, can you info how can we obtain it?

Thanks again.
