I just downloaded the errata pack and it mentions 'using the sticker sheet provided'. Is IDW making this available for folks with misprinted games/rules? I don't see anything on their website.

Also, two notes too on the provided errata files:

- The images on the cards and icons are decidedly low res (the text is good) and I'm leery of spending the time to print, cut, and paste. Are higher res versions available if I have to go this route?
- Will corrected updated rules be available and posted?

Thanks - seems odd to me that this game has gotten so little attention/notice. Were review copies sent out? Components - misprints aside - are excellent and clearly lots of thought and attention was put into it...seems like a fun little family game that deserves more attention.

Thanks,
Josh

I have no idea when (or if) a sticker sheet will be made available for the early adopters of this game. I emailed IDW, but haven't received a response yet.

I agree that the provided images are of really crappy quality, so I made my own. I posted it to my own gallery, because I plan to remove them when an official higher-quality version is made available (or even earlier, if asked). If you're handy with scissors, then you don't need replacement cards, just replacement icons. I recommend using a repositionable glue so you can get the game back to pristine state when/if an official sticker sheet and replacement cards becomes available. In the meantime, try this:



Grab the maximum size and print at 300 dpi. The only remaining issue I found is that the word "left" is shorter than the word "right" that replaces it in the manual, so it's a really tight fit and ends up looking like a run-on sentence.

Ha! Wonderful, though too late in my case as I already printed and stickers and made the cards. Turned out pretty well, though the pixelated clowns and elephants irritate. And I too discovered the left/right length issue. All in all, some good exercise for my fine-motor skills if nothing else...

This game continues to perplex me. Really nice production values - and it's been fun playing with the kids - but seemingly ignored by both IDW and everyone else...

Someone gave me 88gg for a rules translation and all I got was this lousy overtext

Great job on the paste up image, but I think it could use one more elephant, Itsy betsy wasn't errata'd but I'm sure the clown should be an elephant.

You are in a maze of twisty passages, all alike.

The cards should have a blanket errata changing all clowns to elephants on them and vice versa, I believe, as the switch was made correctly on the tiles, but not on the cards or rulebook.

So that means the Cannon Fedora (front) -- Itsy Betsy (rear) card was missed in the official errata then? Both of the clowns (one on the Itsy Betsy side, one on the Cannon Fedora side) should be elephants. I need 2 more elephant icons on my sheet, then!

Because that card wasn't present in the official Errata Pack Star Cards correction file, I didn't bother making corrected icons for it. I guess that means IDW missed a card correction?

Edit: I threw a couple extra elephant icons (for the card corrections) on the image, just in case.
Edit 2: IDW confirmed in email that yes, they missed that card correction.

Thanks very much for your work on this, Diane.

I can't get your image to print out at the correct size; I've tried it several times with different printer settings(and having saved the largest image size, as you suggested), and it's consistently enormously too big.

The (poor resolution and incomplete) official errata sticker sheet prints at the correct size w/no problems. I think the difference is that one is a doc file and the other is an image-they have different printing defaults.

Any idea how to resolve this? I'm using a Canon Pixma MG 2522 printer, if it matters.

Thanks.

You need to be able to set the dpi to 300. PM me an offline address, and I'll email you a pdf of it. See if that works.
