It seems like there are very very very few sculpture contract cards (i.e., used to sell the artwork), but a lot of digital art contract cards. Is this the same for others? (And any thoughts as to the thematic importance?)

When we teach the game, we feel like we have to caveat the distribution so as to avoid someone hoping for sculpture contract cards that never come out.

Interesting! I hadn't noticed this. As far as I can tell, if it was reflective of reality, I'd have thought paintings should have the most contracts due to being the most sold media.

Seems like? Why wouldn't you just check to see if the distribution is different?

Thanks everyone.... looks like the set of contract cards in my game is not the way it's supposed to be! I didn't quite know the distribution since I was being lazy and didn't want to unpack the box .

But now that I know it's supposed to be the same distribution, this is what my game looks like:

- 1 sculpture
- 5 photographs
- 5 paintings
- 9 digital art

My future games of Gallerist will be much better. I'll make a request to the Publisher for a fresh set.

The first thing I do when I unpack a game is make sure my component quantities match what is written in the rule book. Hope you get your cards corrected.

I can't say I'm as diligent as you Evan, but after our first play through, we did do a count of sales cards. Unfortunately, the rules don't list #s of each type, just #s in total.

Husband and I played again yesterday, after I cribbed the right set on index cards (thank you Tabletopia! for the exact card distributions + bonus actions). Definitely liked the game more.

Glad to hear it worked out! It's been a couple months since I last played and I'm surprised to hear they don't clearly define the quantity of each card. Interesting.

Me too.

I notice when I open the rules and don't find an itemized list of all components included.

Punching, counting, organizing storage, etc.. get me familiar with what I am reading about in the rules.
