So my 7 Wonders came with 2 misprinted items. My Gizah has side A printed on both sides and my Siege Workshop doesn't tell me how many players the card is supposed to be played with. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

In general whenever you have issues with components your best bet is always to contact the publisher. They will help with replacements.

Also sorry to tell this to you, but what you are describing sounds like you got a counterfeit copy of 7 Wonders.

Well, that sucks, but thanks for the heads up and advice. I'll contact customer service and see what can be done.

Not counterfeit.
Mine had the same issues. The Siege Workshop should be a "5+", the Giza board I contacted the company and they shipped one out fairly quickly.

Huh good if its not counterfeit. Just seems odd that a game this established and printed how many times suddenly has a misprinted batch—I mean I am sure it can happen but I just wonder how the print files would get screwed up like that. Ah well!

It doesn't need to be only the print files that are screwed up. Some print worker could have easily loaded the wrong stack of already-printed sheets into the equipment which assembles the Wonder Boards. And that's just one example.

Ah good point. My imagination is adding a lot more automation to the process than likely exists. Simple human error could create a few misprinted wonder boards. (I do have a harder time figuring out how a card was missing the 5+ but alas I am sure it could occur.) I just am probably on too high of an alert for counterfitted stuff after seeing some examples recently.

Not sure how it got left out to begin with, but it's a tiny enough detail that it would be easy to miss on a 'quality check'.
And/or a tiny enough detail that it wouldn't be enough to trash a whole print run.
