Ok, look. I'll freely admit I suffer from some type of bizarre OCD kind of symptom which often leads me to believe that just about anything I buy is some kind of defective copy that slipped through quality control....but....

I could have swore when was introduced to this game by a friend, his copy had card that were "coated" with that textured pattern like the cards from the BSG game. Yet, all my cards look like normal, scuffable, cardstock.

Silly, because not every came from FFGames has coated cards (LOTR, Blue Moon), but I'm not sure. The more I take a close look at the gate, mythos and espically various item cards, they seem awfully..well..naked for such a quality game.

Yes, I'm probably being WAY too anal about it, but hey, it's still a great game.

Just wondering what everyone else's experiences (opinions) are.

Thanks!

I don't know about the particular coating used, but I've thought the Arkham components are some of the best quality of any game out there. I guess different print runs could have varied? Not sure.

I have the old, non-revised edition of the base game and all the expansions; every card in my sets are of the same quality and not coated with a textured pattern.

No, none of the cards in my experience were the linen finish that you describe above.

Got my game 2 weeks ago and nothing is coated. Just ordinary evil cards!
