The KS exclusive stuff is good but cards have different back color from the original game. The role cards are useless, three different backs. Clue and mean card backs do not match either with the base set. A total disaster.

The most worrying thing is there´s no official answer about what the solution will be. Even buying the premium role set, there are not enough detective cards. For the KS price this is totally unacceptable. It´s incredible this serious problem has not been mentioned in a couple reviews I watched. I hope there will be an alternative to fix this.

I think we should all wait till Grey Fox announces a solution to the issue, before getting so worked up. They're working on it and will let everyone know once they decide on the next step.

And yes... I too wish reviewers would be much more up front about poor component quality. The Dice Tower and many others usually gloss over clear component issues more often than not.

For example, how many reviewers addressed the awful quality of the marbles in Potion Explosion? Almost none. Certainly, none of the main ones.

Reviewers should not be afraid to make designers and companies mad and actually mention problems with components. This happens time and time again.

Role cards are fixed with a smile matte back sleeve.

Who cares if the means/clue cards have different backs - no game reason for them to be similar.


I think you meant simple instead of smile. But I kind of liked 'Role cards are fixed with a smile'. Sound like a good solution to most things in life.

Maybe they didn't have an issue? My marbles are certainly fine. Doesn't mean some people's don't have issues, but it may also mean that the issues aren't particularly rampant either. Majority of people who have the game probably don't have a BGG account, and surely everyone who doesn't have an issue with component quality of marbles hasn't spoken up about it (similarly I doubt all people with issues have).

As others have mentioned regarding this role card issue, this is something we've been working on with the printer. It is neither a quick nor simple solution, especially during Chinese New Year.

We are doing our best to resolve it and will be letting folks know as soon as we have the logistics worked out. We apologize for those who have run into this. It's incredibly frustrating for us as well. As mentioned, there are workarounds in the meantime.... but that doesn't mean we won't be working on a way to resolve this ourselves.

Are there issues with the role cards in the retail version as well?

Grey Fox has a great game here so I would believe that everyone at Grey Fox games is doing their best to find a solution. Let everyone know.

I am curious though, how does one get the title 'Chief Noisemaker at Grey Fox Games'. Awesome title

One is allowed to make it up! I was inspired by Suzanne Sheldon's title of Master of Fireworks with Restoration Games.

Mayday's Blackbacked Euro sleeves can do the trick, but really this should be on Grey Fox Games to correct, rather than the consumers.

Any updates on this? I bought this game retail and the card difference is astounding. The finish, colour, everything is off.
