My copy of the second printing arrived yesterday. While I was unboxing and sorting things, I noticed that the Tharsis Republic card doesn't have the "corporation" heading on it. It's a minor misprint that won't affect anything, but it still annoys the production/layout artist in me. And since I can't find anybody else mentioning it yet, I can only assume it's an error that was introduced in the new printing (surely someone would've noticed it in the first printing by now, right?).

So has anyone else found any other misprints/goofs in the new edition?

Well not a misprint, but mine came with two sets of red cubes instead of blue cubes. And I'm not alone.

I was blessed enough to have a first print, and can confirm "Corporation" is at the top for Tharsis.

Isn't that the one that says it's not a corporation in the flavor text​?

corkysru is correct!

I think it is very good attention to detail, Tharsis Republic

Flavour text is: "With the first big city came a social community that could not be controlled by the corporations. Determined to have an elected leader, workers and stuff from all corporations formed Tharsis Republic."

So if you detest corporations in real life, the Tharsis Republic would be a good entity to play as.

Well, in that case they need to update the image in the rulebook, especially since that's the example card they use for the card anatomy section.

But I can see why it was removed if it was in fact done intentionally.

Heh. You're right about the inconsistency. So it would seem that the rulebook is in error then as the changes weren't reflected there or to simply use a different corporation as the example.

Well, even if it's not a corporation per se, it is still played as one. UNMI is not a proper corporation either, but is played as one.

Yeah that's what I thought. Starting to argue about what is a corporation opens a whole can of worms for rules lawyers to argue that things that affect "corporations" do not affect them. In game terms, each player plays a corporation - period. And it probably should be reflected on the cards.

Yes I am fully aware that all those entities should be treated as corporations.

The "problem" is that in the 2nd printing, Tharsis Republic no longer says Corporation in the thin gold banner like it does in the rulebook or the 1st printing. UNMI has the Corporation banner on its card still.

It won't be a problem in my game group as I will easily explain it in a thematic sense, but end with "for all intents and purposes it is a corporation."
