I only picked up the game right before Easter, and I am curious as to what print problems others have had. What are the other problems that people have encountered? Are the maps not of the same colour? I have been so rushed since returning, that I need to have a proper inspection.

If people can post some images, or direct me to them, I would be most appreciative.

South map has a lighter color than others. They have said the game is playable and they will not send out a new map for this minor difference. Some like the lighter map, some like the darker map.

I only had the slight map color difference that others reported. All counters and cards are present and no printing misalignment problems. I could not pass up this game.

I had the counters around the outside of one sheet with a print quality problem. I've seen other people describe missing sheets. But these are replaced by writing to them. They'll send you a URL (i've forgotten what it is) where you describe the issue.

Rulebook font could've been bigger - as well as some of the fonts on the counters (or abbreviations used instead).

The small round markers are very small, but there aren’t a lot of markers and they are pretty clear to see on the map. I’m working on acrylic markers for this and the odds indicators that will be easier to handle, which is the bigger issue in play. So nice to have a marker poor game!

As for font size in the rules, if only VPG had made the rules available in a format, maybe digital, I hear PDF is good, that you could use to make reading easier.

😇

I hear there were people who refused to play Paths of Glory because the coastline of Holland wasn’t correct for the period depicted. Sigh.
