I just went to set up the Razing the red fork scenario and noticed that it is impossible with the core set. I double-checked my components to make sure I didn't lose any pieces (I didn't --the numbers match) and realized that I don't have 7 building tiles. I had to use a hill hex and the caravan camp hex to play the scenario and I don't think the wooded/regular river bend hexes all worked out correctly either. \

Call me sensitive; but did anyone ele run into this problem?

I can't say for certain, as I have 3 expansions mixed into the base game.

That in mind, I see 9 tiles with buildings (7 thatch roofed huts and 2 large brown wooden).
On the other sides of the building tiles are:
* 2 river bends
* 2 river straights
* 2 marshes (expansion)
* 1 hill
* 1 road
* 1 woods

Could it be that you used some of the building tiles for the opposite side (river)?

No I checked both sides. I started out by trying to collect all of the building hexes; I then went from there.

Thanks for checking though.

Unfortunately, we can't see the backs of those terrain tiles, but I think that the OP may be correct that there aren't enough buildings in the core set to play that scenario. It doesn't surprise me, given the numerous other errors that the game shipped with.

Heh, I felt that including the second side of the sheets was overkill, since (nearly) everything other than the terrain overlays is identical on both sides

I went through my terrain overlays. I seem to have six buildings total - four of the yellow thatched roof huts and two of the large wood inns. So it would indeed seem that the scensario map has a 'typo' of sorts.

All you guys who only have the core set should write to FFG Customer Service and demand extra tiles. It only makes sense and it is yet another error by the BoW team that should be brought to light.
