I thought they'd announce the availability of this replacement tile.

Where did you contact them? I think I need to do the same for mine too.

All games in the first printing have this error.

If you're in a hurry, you may download a corrected tile picture from eggertspiele.de

I sent an e-mail asking for a replacement.

Stronghold is handling the US release. I don't think there was the same misprint in the Stronghold version.

Wrong, wrong, wrong. I was wrong.

I printed the corrected 8b artwork on a label to fix the tile. It turned out better than I thought it would and I honestly forgot about it. I'm not sure if I'm even going to bother requesting a replacement tile, but if I decide to, do you know if Stronghold will be sending those out? I haven't seen anything from them about it.

I just put in a request with Stronghold. I'll let others know what response I get.

Word is there'll be a second printing of the game at the end of January. I'm sure that'll fix the misprint so you could hold off till then if you want to avoid the issue altogether.

Reply from Stronghold is that they won't be available to deliver replacements until March. For now the sticker printed with the downloadable image works fine.

Correct. This is the same response I received. As well as a link to the tile artwork to print out if I wanted.

Thank you for your email.

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

We will have the tile reprinted. However, this takes some time and the new tiles will not arrive before early March at least.
When they are available, we'll post on BGG about how to get them. We are not sure of the process yet.

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.


Thanks for your interest and support of Stronghold Games!

Thanks,

This tile has been reprinted now!

If you own the FIRST edition of the German/English version by Pegasus Spiele and want your misprinted tile replaced, please write an email with your postal address to:
info@eggertspiele.de
or

IMPORTANT: The replacement of the tile for the US-version is handled by Stronghold Games.

Thanks for your patience!

Is that still accurate now that eggertspiele has the part reprinted?

Yes. The above reply from Stronghold is recent within the past couple of days.

I hope they just send the replacement to the geek store. I vaguely recall there being an issue with a Stonemeier game and that is what they did and it seemed to work pretty well, at least for me it did. I think Rio Grande did this for a Dominion card as well.
