I posted this on the Kickstarter, but for those not on the KS or who dont keep up with the KS after its run, check your stuff when you get it!

most all of my cards are miscut/misaligned/offset etc.

ink colouring is off on my green + yellow cards. (some darker, some lighter).

my treaty board has a line in it on the green card.

my mounted map is lifting from the corner,
one of my standees is melted..

etc.

the game is still playable, but QA just appears to be very low.

I posted some pictures of mine;

so just check your stuff when you get it!

I hope this is just a glitch.... I'm sure acadamy games will help you out.

Playing with different backside colors may give away what kind of cards your holding.

Everything is 100% perfect in my copy.

It just came over lunch today here in North Idaho, ordered direct from Academy Games' website. Still surprised they shipped it to me during GenCon -- I though they'd ship it this week, after GenCon. laugh

We also have not got a ton of work done this afternoon, pawing through the rules and pieces here in the office... whistle

Interesting, my Kickstarter copy was posted via UPS today, I should have it by Monday.

I have one green card (name was 'Spy' but I can't remember the number' with a noticeable darker back then the others. However I also have a replacement card that matches the others. So it may have been an issue that was corrected and you just got a bad batch.

My Plastic stands are all perfect, the board looks great. Maybe 1 or two cards slightly off cut, I'm talking millimeters certainly wouldn't be noticeable when playing.


All in all I think it looks great. You probably got a bad copy and I'm sure AG will take care of you.

I observe numerous obvious streaks and markings on several of my cards' backs (sometimes on both the original and the "extra") copies. I am also missing a miniature. Very disappointing QA/QC.

Received mine today... I contacted Academy Games via https://academygames.com/contact to ask about the following: I had an extra Thegn #18 card with a lighter green and assume it's a replacement. I am also missing one of my planning maps. Everything looks great (really loving the giant map!) and I'm not missing anything else!

It took me a few minutes to figure out what the tray covers were. Thanks for including those!

they said in the KS comments there are two copies of #12 + #18 green cards as they had a print issue.
