Here is a list of games that I am currently waiting on, and why they are delayed.

Massive Darkness: Shipment has been delayed due to a printing error in which several of the cards are unreadable. Several shipments were delivered overseas, and U.S. shipments were stopped to fix the cards before shipping out.

Folklore the affliction: Shipment has been delayed because the maps were printed on a card stock that was too thin.

Too Many Bones: Several cards were printed incorrectly on this reprint, and shipment has been delayed to fix the issue.

If there's one thing I've learned in life, it's that everyone will always do their job incorrectly.

So if I incorrectly read a misprinted card then it will come out correctly???

Sounds like a simple fix to me.

Paqh! In the good old days rule books were full of errors, and maps always had errata ("Hex 3007 should have a river in it"). Kids today don't know their born, I blame the parents.

You used to just make corrections with a ball-point pen on the cards and in the rules.

Where are you finding out about all these delays? Is this a "Kickstarter" thing? I should look into that someday instead of waiting for games to be available for purchase.

Sounds like a double negative.

And I'm learning there is always someone more cynical than I am. surprise
