When checking through my game i notice that there are item tokens for all spell items except for Firecloak and Bloodshard. Why or do I have missing components??

EIDT: Checking the back of the rules I can see that indeed there are no tokens for the mentioned spells. Why?

Good question. You don't have any missing components, they aren't no pressent in my game either and they aren't on the token list in the rules. I can't think of any reason why they aren't there.

Oh okay. Just got the game today, and we couldn't find the Bloodshard token either. I also checked the back of the rulebook to see what it's supposed to look like, and it's completely absent...

Damnit FFG!

So is this a production error? Are these tokens needed to play the game?

They aren't necessary, but aesthetically it would be nice to have them. Basically, when you drop an item in this game you are supposed to mark the dropped item's location with a corresponding token so other players can pick them up later -- there are tokens to represent each item that can be dropped this way.

On the back of the rulebook is a key that shows you what each token is supposed to look like -- the item called "Bloodshard" is not only missing from the token supply, but the key as well (and I guess Firecloak too, haven't seen that item myself yet as I've only played once)

We just ended up using a penny for the Bloodshard token. Not the end of the world, but not the most aesthetically pleasing solution either

That's what he said.

To quote Tom:
FAN-TASTIC!


Edit: No reason to wait for the second print I guess .. , but do they usually ship out components for issues like this or is the only "repairs" they do through expansions? Kinda lame in the later case. They should had done it right in the first place

I emailed FFG CS to see what the deal with that is.

I guess it is not a huge deal. Still, its a shame.

Does anyone know of a legitimate reason why they would not be present?

[edit] I hope FFG gives us a way to at least print them out in their resource section until they can be replaced either via expansion or directly through replacement services.


Did your hear back from FFG?

yea, they put out an emergency FAQ shortly after release to explain that they intentionally didn't include these (which may or may not be true) and that you don't really need tokens for every item and to just use a substitute (which is true but yea feels incomplete without them).
