I just got the Fame and Fortune expansion, and noticed that the backsides of the new culture cards are much darker than the original ones. Is my copy defective and should I get new ones from FFG, or is this the case with all copies?

To wit:


Original ones top, new ones bottom.

My cards are only slightly darker, something that probably wouldn't be noticed during play. I think yours are quite a bit darker and warrant replacement.

Not only the cards are different. The village and hut tokens are considerably different and it's easy to pick out if it's a new or old token by their colour.

Ouch! Our copy is slightly darker, manageable during game play (esp. when we put the decks on the other side of the table). Shoot FFG an email, ask for replacements.

I did, I got an email back that they would send me a replacement (though it could take a while, but that's no problem).

We take cards from the bottom of the deck because of this.

Mine are noticeable. And if you look closely. The game Tiles and hut tokens are darker as well.
Not sure whether I'm going to complain about it yet. But it is kind of bothersome.
