Subject: Does Anneke card have any misprint? rss

I have observed that some Kickstarter additional characters are copies of other basic characters:

-Jamie Finnlock is a copy of Résistance's Saboteur.
-VF Intel Officer is a copy Secret Weapons' Intel Officer.
-Anneke is a copy of Secret Weapons' Butcher.

The problem is, while some cards are exact copies (except artwork), like the VF Intel Officer, the tan version of the Butcher and Anneke cards differs between them (the Butcher has an additional Grenade and a Panzerfaust).

Does Anneke card have any misprint (lacking a Grenade and a Panzerfaust)? Or is the Butcher card the wrong one?

Can anyone check Jamie Finnlock and Saboteur cards to see if there is any differences between them? (I don't have the Résistance expansion, so I can't check for myself).

Saboteur & Finlnlock are identical, they have different weapons (MP40/Sten) but same statistics (2 dice without silencer)

VF Intel Officer "goliath" ability costs 2 actions, 1 action for de original Intel Officer. Misprint ??

Anneke & the Butcher have different equipments printed on one face, maybe it's a choice of the game designer ?

But there's another real misprint :
"ignore gas when wearing a German Uniform: [P] icon on both sides of the card (not [1A] icon). Perform a close combat attack when visible: [1A] icon on both sides of the card (not [P] icon)."

Oh gosh I hope this game gets a new expansion on Kickstarter which includes an errata pack for existing editions. This game is full of misprints and misleading information :/

Not a lot of misprints (wrong icons on 2 or 3 commandos cards) without a great repercussion on the game, but the author said he will put an improved rulebook on the website after collecting all the observations.

Yes it is a misprint (added to the FAQ).

Be careful with the FAQs, it's Anneke(tan) card that adds the Grenade and the Panzerfaust, not Anneke(blue), if Butcher and Anneke have to be the same.

Furthermore, in the FAQs you indicate that Anneke must be played with the Résistance expansion, but it must be played with Secret Weapons expansion instead (the expansion where Panzerfausts and Smoke Bombs are present).

Yes, but they are BIG ones. Rulebook mistakes are usually insignificant, since other players in general don't have to read the rulebook. Event and scenario card misprints are slightly annoying but they rarely come up.

But character card misprints are rather huge and I am surprised it wasn't discovered during playtesting (though it may be that the expansion content was not widely playtested, since errors are dominantly on those cards).

Oops, you are right, thank you, I corrected it.

>> I also uploaded the corrected cards on the FAQ.

I hate misprint, not only to V-Commandos but also other games with errata...

Any chance of getting an errata image of the Butcher?

The other images are in the FAQ, but not the butcher.

- So the updated file of Anneke is still incorrect in french ? Weapons are good but text is incorrect ?

- Do we have a chance to get a reprint of these misprinted cards (core and goodies) during the mass production of retail boxes ? At least for backers ? I'm ready to pay a little money for that cuz I'm conscious it will cost you but everybody won't ask for this systematically. 6 cards for the moment is not impossible to mix to a game reprint.
Several reasons I would prefer than correcting myself : I don't sleeve my cards above all if I don't shuffle them, it is hard to correct these big missprints with a pen or to have a good result with pasting, hard to remember all as it does'nt follow any logic, I don't want... laugh

Anneke French version: Tan side / starts with more weapons than what you have on the printed card. I added the blue side (with text correction) which was missing in the FAQ. Thanks!

I understand. Mass production was done at the same time as the Kickstarter production, so this option is not possible. I cannot garantee that we will reprint these Kickstarter cards, we will see what is possible for the 2nd print of the game next year.
