It was just chance that on my 2nd play of the game, we discovered that there are 2 cards for Khartoum but none for Kinshasa. I wanted to alert all of you and Z-Man games of this small problem.

Other than that, the game is excellent! I want to play it over and over again.

Ouch. I wonder if this is just your copy, or every copy. It's hard to imagine that a card deck error is not systemic.

My copy has one of each in both infection and player cards. However, I do have two LA cards and am missing the Lagos card from the player deck.

Bob

Edit: I did check my infection cards - one of each.
A little sharpie to the second LA player's card can easily turn it to a Lagos card.

I never even thought to check my decks. I just finished checking them and both my player deck and my infection deck are fine. But, I'm glad I checked nonetheless. It sounds like something maybe everyone should do.

In the interest of full disclosure, I checked both of my decks and they are all present and accounted for.

I played this game last night for the first time-let me be more accurate...I played for the first, second, third, fourth, fifth and sixth time last night, and it is fun. We didn't win a single time, and the game handed us our lunches.

We had a damn blast doing it too.

Don't let a few people missing cards dissuade you from picking this gem up. Im sure Zev will take care of anyone with any issues.

I agree. I have a duplicate card, missing one and it isn't anything that detracts from the game. There are still 12 yellows, in addition, it is nothing a sharpie can't fix. And I am sure Zev will take care of it. He has been very good regarding issues with his releases.

I concur. Great game, lots of fun, and plays very quickly. I'd have played over and over again if my family weren't such poops. laugh

Check out my blog for a rundown of our first plays.

Well, we played 4 games so far and we did notice something was off. Then someone mentioned today about possible missing cards (I had counted them as always but did not check each one specifically) so I did a match up. I wound up missing 3 cards (and having duplicates of 3 others).

I am missing these three cards.

1) Infection card - Kinshasa

2) Infection card - Chicago

3) Player card - Toronto


I wrote to Zev at Zman games tonight and I hope I get the missing cards quickly. Everyone wants to play this game...but I am not breaking it out again until it's complete. The game is hard enough to win.....

I will let everyone know how this turns out.

My tally:
Special Events= extra Airlift, Missing the one for free research center (I only know this because i remember it from another person set when we played)

Infection= Extra Algiers, missing Cairo Extra Hong Kong, Missing Jakarta

Maybe if we get enough people togehter we can swap cards to fix our sets

Wow....I did not think to check the special events. Is there a complete card list available anywhere that I can double check all of my cards against?

There are 48 city cards in both the infection and player deck, one for each city.

There are 6 epidemic cards.

There are 5 special events cards: Resilient Population, Airlift, Forecast, One Quiet Night, and Government Grant.

And of course 5 role cards and 4 quick reference cards.

To all:

Just email me any card and cube discrepancies. I'll send what you are missing. Unfortunately this is not something I can control though I have emailed the printer to step up their quality control.

For the record, Zev responded almost immediately saying the cards would be sent and then I received them today. He is definitely on the A+ list for customer service.

Compare that to a different company (I'll leave them unnamed for now since I own MANY of their games) where I recently received a damaged tile. I wrote to them and I have never even heard back from them one way or the other. I will have to keep following up.

Good job Zev!!

I second the above. I had the same problem as others (two St. Petersburgs, no San Fran). I wrote Zev Monday night, received a response within an hour or so, and received the replacement yesterday. Excellent customer service!
