Hi all,

yesterday the preorder process started on www.histogame.de

however, I had to give a break at the moment. Background is that today I discovered a serious printing error on some of the cards. I first have to find a way to solve this problem, before I can accept any new preorders.

I hope I can give more detailed infos on monday or tuesday.

richard, histogame

Bad things always happen, the important thing is to overcome them. Thank you for your timely intervention and good luck!

Question: What will happen with my existing preorder? Is it still valid?

Yes, great question. I put one in as well and was wondering too. I appreciate the catch and am just curious.

All preorders receives so far are of course still valid, incl. the conditions valid at the moment of preorders.

Thank you! A preorder is not a binding contract, as your website made it quite clear, so thank you once again!

hello,

the production problem was solved in the meantime. I am happy to report that the game will be available for the Essen game fair.

The pre-order site is online again:

http://www.histogame.de

All preorders received befor 28 Sept are still valid (incl. the conditions of the moment the preorder was made).

yours

I am sorry for the problem and for the extra costs.

I visited the webpage. Do you really want a picture of Wir Sind das Volk for the Essen preorder of 2 + 2?

The problem was that 10 cards of the arms race category, have on its reverse side the conflict category (and vice versa). Although the game is playable with these cards, it becomes a nightmare for the brain.

Therefore, these 20 cards had to be reprinted. And, since the game fair is close, the reprint had to be done fast.

Will we get an email to pay for our preorder before or after essen? I preordered before the error but never got a followup for payment.

emails go out after essen. (because only then I know the exact weight, necessary to calculate shipping costs.)

I got the expansion, was about to replace the wrong cards with the good ones when I got lost in thought admiring the cards, and I didn't remember which ones are the right ones............

Could you please indicate, for the less-gifted among us, how to identify the correct set of cards? blushblushblushblushblush

The correct set of cards are those where the cards with flash symbols on the front also have flash symbols on the back.

Richard, the Histogames Wir Sind Das Volk: 2+2 order site is not allowing orders. It says; "available soon" where you place your order quantity. Is this an error?

Oh, yes!!! That is indeed an error!!! -- I just corrected it.

(and learned the lesson that one should always double check before uploading sites to the server.)

The expansion is available now on Boardgamebliss for purchase. Does this include the corrected cards?

All copies should contain the corrected cards (unless during assembling a mistake happened, but it should be a singular event).

Question, if I buy it, how do I know if there is the corrected cards inside and not the wrong ones?
