According to Joris Wiersinga, only the US pre-orders and the Essen copies were shrink wrapped with misprint player aids:
I think I can explain the mystery.
- The pre-orders to the US were the first thing we packed; they were ready for shipment when we got our first sample game ourselves. However, when we tested the sample, we found there was a misprint on the player aids(the area for houses was too small). Se we delayed the US shipment by 3 weeks to be able to add new player aids; as was the case in Essen, all pre-orders will include a double set of player aids, 4 with too little space for houses and 4 good ones.
- This did delay the shipment to the US by 3 weeks; originally the games would arrive there mid november, but now they just arrived a few days ago in the port and are waiting for transport in the busy Christmas period (as detailed above).
- Some people ordered after the initial set of games was shipped; these orders were sent separately, direct to the address rather than through Funagain. Because of the delay in the first shipment, these later games have apparently caught up with the earlier ones. It's only 10-15 packages I believe, as we sold out very quickly afterwards.
