This is above and beyond the response that I expected. Thanks for your compassion and generosity Jamey.
Looking forward to jumping straight into a game - my copy is due it for delivery right now!

Class act, thank you sir and I feel sorry for other publishers operating in the era of Stonemaier Games. The bar and benchmark has become SM. Appreciate everything you do.

Very happy that a solution is being made available for early adopters. One of the only major complaints I have for being the first to get many games is that I have to playtest/proofread for a publisher that didn't take the time to do so. Just the fact that you're addressing this in a mature way and giving options to correct the issue is fantastic. Thanks!

Woah. Jamey is a human and makes mistakes? Say it aint so! 😀

I am a freak and will want a clean game but it is no biggie to wait and pay a little shipping.

Thanks, Jamey!

I guess ordering from MeepleSource means I might get the Wingspan upgrade kit after all...

Very cool.

Has anyone looked at making a PDF of the updated cards that we could print out on stickers? Would be useful for those of us who sleeve.

When Asmadi messed up Innovation Deluxe they mailed the correction cards to buyers. That's top notch service.

Zeb: I'm interested to know the full context of that. How were those cards messed up? Did they also misspell "between"?

We do provide images of the two cards that slightly impact gameplay here: https://stonemaiergames.com/games/wingspan/rules/

I think some of that was due to the printer? Also they lost money on it and now won't reprint big box innovation deluxe.

I can go without the correct cards but from what I know, you have already an expansion planned?

Would it be possible for you to keep some update packs to ship to people who will order the expansion (from Stonemeier) if they request it then?

For anyone seeing this and wondering whether they impact play - they do not. I’ve played 4 times with 1 player, 3 players and 2 games of 2 players. I didn’t notice and the game plays beautifully. Don’t let these minuscule issues get in the way of you buying a beautiful game that’s extremely well done in every other facet.

C GX: Thanks for your question. The answer at this point is "maybe." That does seem like an easy way to ship them. At the same time, by the time the expansion comes out, we might be 4 printings into Wingspan, so those cards could cause more confusion than intended. Also, I have no way of listing a $0 item on Shopify.

Thank you so very much Jamey, for listening even when you didn't think it was a big problem.

Thanks for valuing the customer experience! I often enough get treated as weird or lesser than other customers, because of things outside my control (fibro fog on top of my other conditions means trying to rein in and focus is like trying to tighten a net, that the fibro has cut holes in, some days more than others; I do my best, though. If I'm not aware at the time of the problems focusing and how people react to it, I become aware soon enough, which feels awful, though helps me try to modfiy myself as best as I can with fibro fog cutting holes in the net.)

Thanks for treating me like one of your many customers, which is a great place to be.

My daugher who is pickier than I about games, which is saying something, she was oohing and aahing over the game, as I handed her different things, starting with the rulebook.

And again, thanks for making the rules so accessible, it's a boon to me and others with issues, let alone for those without.

Sorry so long. If I haven't sold a copy to a friend yet, this news will surely do so (someone who doesn't hear about new games or anything but her son games and loves birds . . . ..) Have a wonderful day!

Let's get those proofreaders working sooner than later.

Not Zeb here, but I bought Innovation Deluxe and know about the history of that update pack. There were a number of cards that had issues ranging from incorrect icons that impact play to minor typos on the level of "betweeen". They printed a 17-card update pack that customers just had to submit a Google form to receive for free.

Typos definitely dont bother me either, but I’ll definitely pay shipping for an update pack so thanks so much for doing that Jamey! Just out of curiousity, how did people know that the sandpiper was supposed to be 5 pts instead of 4? Im probably missing something but ive only played it solo once and i take a while to remember all the rules hahaha. Thanks in advance

"Just out of curiousity, how did people know that the sandpiper was supposed to be 5 pts instead of 4?"

Someone in the Facebook group found a bird that was almost identical mechanically to the Sandpiper. He asked Elizabeth about the point difference, and she realized that there was a small mistake in her master spreadsheet (just for the Sandpiper). I'm pretty amazed that they noticed it--I think it easily could have gone unnoticed forever.

Thank you so much, Jamey. This is great customer service. I agree with many that these little issues are not really an issue for me, though I will probably get the update pack when it becomes available. That being said, I am still extremely happy with this game. From theme to components to gameplay, it is top notch. Thanks for publishing this.

By the way, I have experience as a proofreader from my work about 15 years ago. I am constantly still correcting things I see in writing. Can't help it. If you are ever looking for more proofreaders in the future, I would love to be of help.
