I have two packs of Night/Day cards, and seem to be missing the hero, site description, etc. cards. Are those important?

A lot of people have been reporting component issues with this printing...should I be worried about my incoming copy? Was this as common with the first printing?

I don't want happiness by halves, nor is half of sorrow what I want. Yet there's a pillow I would share, where gently pressed against a cheek like a helpless star, a falling star, a ring glimmers on the finger of a hand.

Bummer. And you've probably been waiting ages for it too.

The hero cards are not so important, they're just pretty.

The site descriptions, on the other hand, are technically part of the rulebook. There are rules on those cards that do not appear in the rulebook, or only appear in the walkthrough (which is not really supposed to be a rules reference)

You can use the walkthrough as a substitute, but you should order replacements ASAP.

Damn i'd be pissed hard!
I've read a lot of things lately concerning this issue and i'm postponing my order for this game due to that.

What's weird is that many report completely different missing pieces...like you with the cards, others with crystals and other with castles...

Check your things and take one more day if needed to ship 100% completed games please...

For the site descriptions, you can print out copies of all the cards in the Files section:

Other than that, you'll want Skill descriptions, check out the last page of this file:

Now you should be set to enjoy this awesome game.

Thanks for the 'heads up' on this issue. Just opened mine up and checked, thankfully everything is there.

You are crazy! The chance of you having a packing error are low and the game is fantastic.

Even if you do find an error, there are several reports from people who requested replacement components and received them.

Hahaha thanks for the compliment!

It won't stop me from buying this game, don't worry, but I still think it's bad from a company to have, what it seems, many games shipped with missing components.

But yeah, i'm crazy...even more so due to not having the game yet!

Mine showed up on Monday and as far as I can tell after my initial walthrough of the game, everything arrived with mine.

Now, to somehow manage to make more free time and get the extra leaf in the table.

Thanks for the helpful links.

What is especially annoying is that I purposely waited longer to buy it from my gaming-club vendor to support him. Also, I am now compelled to go through the entire component checklist on the Wizkids site because they "are only able to fulfill one request per game purchase. Please ensure all of your product replacement needs have been identified prior to completing your order."

Well at least you got your copy. I preordered mine from CoolStuffInc.com and it still hasn't shipped yet. I will be ticked if I have missing parts as well. Heck, I'd be ticked even if it was another game. I hate missing parts.

No! You're lucky. These just have informational content on them, you can just print it out. We never look at the site description cards anyway, it's more convenient to have the same information on reference sheets.

Hmmm. Just got my copy. I am missing a blank command token for one hero and have an extra "level 9-10" token for another. Guess I'll just repurpose it.
