There must have been a moment at the beginning, where we could have said no. Somehow we missed it. Well, we'll know better next time.

I just bought Runebound 2nd ed, and am now punching out the components. All of my stamina experience counters have life experience counters on the flip side. There are no stamina/stamina, and no life/life. Is this a misprint, or is there something I'm missing in the rules?
All the other counters are consistent on front & back, as well as all other components. So there's not an obvious sign of a misprint. All the components have proper printing alignment on the boards as well.

I'm really impressed so far with the quality of the components and the graphic design of this game, can't wait to play!

Thanks for any help.

Mine are stamina/stamina and life/life, but probably they just changed the components to print fewer cardboard pieces yet still give a decent amount of upgrade flexibility.

There's no rule that uses the flipside nature of these.

When you say "stamina experience counters" do you just mean stamina counters? experience counters are one thing, stamina and health counters are other things. More importantly, the shapes of stamina and health are different, so how do they look when they punch out? Do parts of either symbol get cut off?

If you have the resources, I'd like to see this as a picture posted to the site so I know kinda what you mean here. This is the first time I've ever heard of this :)

He's definitely talking about the +1 Health / +2 Stamina experience counters. I have also recently purchased the Runebound 2nd Edition, and my counters are the same way. I don't think it's going to be much of a problem since a hero can only ever have a maximum of three +1 Health counters.

Unfortunately I don't have a digital camera at the moment. But yeah, I am talking about the rectangular experience counters. The +2 mind, +2 body, and +2 spirit are all consistent on front/back. But the +2 stamina all show the +1 life on the other side.

I'm sure if it's a misprint they'd send me replacements, but having never played the game I can't tell if it's supposed to be that way or not. Unfortunately the component list in the user manual just reads "60 experience counters" with no further detail than that.

But it sounds from the comments so far that this back/front inconsistency shouldn't affect play, and might even be intentional?

Also, another interesting point: the "blue" adventures and counters referred to in the manual are actually purple on my board, cards and counters...

Ohhh, I get it. Sorry. Yeah, I guess it wouldn't affect play much, although, you know, if you have some untrustworthy fellow players who want to switch things around...

The Purple equals Blue is normal.

Is that because the Island of Dread expansion added blue sea encounters to the mix? I don't have that one yet, so I don't know for sure.

My counters have +2 stamina on one side and +1 life on the other as well.

I guess I just assumed it was supposed to be that way. It shouldn't change anything in the game...

Hopefully it means you have more of the other counters.

In the first printing there were 20 mind, 10 body, 10 spirit, 10 health, and 10 stamina counters. All had +2 of the same stat on each side, except health which was +1.

Edit: Make that 20 body and 10 mind!

My copy have the following 60 Experience counters:
10 Wound (+1)
10 Exhaustion (+2)
10 Mind (+2)
10 Spirit (+2)
20 Body (+2)

all with identical prints on the reverse side.

Mind you, my copy was from the first print run of the 2nd edition.

Mine is copyright 2007, and the counters are:

20 body (+2) (both sides consistent)
10 mind (+2) (both sides consistent)
10 magic (+2) (both sides consistent)
20 life (+1)/stamina (+2)

On a side note, I'm very happy with the terrain movement dice. No stickers anymore. The dice are inked black, and the icons are indented for durability - perfect!
