Hi everybody. I recently did a trade to pick up Catan, and to my dismay, found there were 2 cards missing when I received it: One of the 62 expansion cards (Town Hall, there should be 2 but I only have 1), and one of the 10 event cards (Civil war) are MIA.

Will either of these missing affect the game greatly? If so, any suggestions how I could get replacements? I was thinking that if the Civil War has a big impact (there are only 10 event cards, so losing one seems like a big deal), then I could just use one of the other cards and proxy it as a replacement. Any suggestions which one I should use for said proxying, who's loss wouldn't affect the overall game much?

Thanks in advance for any help!

I think I had two missing cards as well (different ones). I wrote to their customer service (email) and got replacements very quickly. That was for a new game, but I am sure they might be able to get you a couple for a small fee for a used game.

I bought the game new and was actually missing the same two cards you are missing. I emailed them and had replacements sent in the mail very quickly. Excellent customer service!

I'll have to try that. I'm missing an University... wait I think it's a Library... I don't have the expansion.

I've recently bought a secondhand, but unplayed game, at a flea merket. They sold it because they didn't understand the game, they said.
These cards look absolutely brand new, likely unplayed. But, as it turns out, I'm missing several cards, and what I do have, I have twice...
Seems like they put two incomplete stacks of cards into this box.



Now, I only payed €2,- for this, so no biggie, but I'd like to try and complete it if I can. If 999 games does help customers, even after many years, I'd be more than happy to pay postage. Of course I also understand if they don't.

Worth a try?
