Very sorry. I know this has been done to death but the answers are now so badly buried in the forums that I can't seem to extract them all. Apologies for only adding to the confusion.

I own what I think is the original 3rd edition printing, bought circa 2008 which certainly has some misprints in it. I've never actually opened the game to check what's wrong with the cards - I've always played on-line and felt I should own a copy in order to do so. So, some questions:

* I understand that replacement cards are available from Eagle and that shipping on these is free worldwide via a refund on the charge. However some threads state that re-printed player boards are also available for free but these are not currently on the site. What's the status with these? Should they be available? Are they just awaiting re-stock? Are they free? How do I get them?

* In the meantime can someone list what the errata on the four mis-printed cards actually are? I've found the ones for oil and coal but I can't seem to clarify what the supposed issues with Newton and Tesla are?

I think Newton and Tesla have their lab and theater icons reversed. The text is right, but it shows the wrong icon to go with the text.

If that isn't right, let me know. I will find the old cards (I got the replacement 4 cards from the publisher) and compare.

That is correct. It is 4 cards total. I got the replacements.

Thanks for the information. I'm still a bit confused about the player boards. Can I, or can I not, get replacements for these?
