I picked up Panic Station a couple weeks ago with a big online order (cashing in on flat-rate shipping). Last night, I read the rules (my copy came with 1.0 rules, but I've printed 2.2 and used them) and tried playing it by myself (controlling 4 players) just to familiarize myself with the rules. It took 2 hours (!) mainly because luck-of-the-draw saw everybody except the host start with 2 Gas Cans. The host had collected 8 Gas Cans (!) from other players by the time he started trying to infect people... and was still met by more Gas Cans after he started handing out Infect cards. But once he became successful, there was nothing anybody could do about it because no one had any Ammo! The only Ammo card in the deck was buried near the bottom.

Hmmm.... I think I might be missing some cards (and/or received too many gas cans).

I have:
- 20x "Exploration" (location) cards - all unique;
- the correct number of player cards, including
. . a human + android in each colour
. . 12x "Check" (heat scan) Cards
. . 18x Infect cards (3 of each colour)
. . the correct number of wooden tokens with stickers.

But I seem to be missing several items and only have 36 "Search" cards in total (the rule book says there should be 46).

Here's a list of the "Search" cards that came with my copy:

1x Host (i.e. biohazard logo)
3x Parasite Alert! (i.e. prawn)
2x Energy Boost
1x Ammo
7x Armor
2x Heavy Gun (pretty useless with only 1x Ammo in the deck)
2x Combat Knife
0x Target Scope
3x First Aid Kit
12x Gas Can
2x Grenade
1x Heat Scanner
0x Keycard (can only open security doors at the computer terminal)

What (and how many of each) am I missing? Are there any I have too many of (e.g. Gas Can? Armor?)? Is there a catalog somewhere listing what cards should come with the game?

*edit* I totally missed that there was a Scope.

As you have not mentioned them, you should have 12 character cards (2 each colour). Apart from them, the correct numbers would be:

1x Host (i.e. biohazard logo)
3x Parasite Alert! (i.e. prawn)
2x Energy Boost
6x Ammo
7x Armor
2x Heavy Gun (pretty useless with only 1x Ammo in the deck)
2x Combat Knife
3x First Aid Kit
12x Gas Can
2x Grenade
1x Heat Scanner
3x Keycard
2x Rifle Scope

Edit: corrected number of Scopes...

Here is my checklist, with differences in bold:

1x Host (i.e. biohazard logo)
3x Parasite Alert! (i.e. prawn)
2x Energy Boost
6x Ammo
7x Armor
2x Heavy Gun (pretty useless with only 1x Ammo in the deck)
2x Combat Knife
3x First Aid Kit
12x Gas Can
2x Grenade
1x Heat Scanner
3x Keycard
3x Scope

Sounds like you need to get a hold of Stronghold and have them ship you some more keycards and ammo. If you are impatient you can sleeve up the whole Search deck (and blood) with black opaque sleeves and use Magic Cards as placeholders for the others.

This also makes me wonder how different the game would be if the quantities of in game items were tweaked... what if there was only one clip of ammo in the station but plenty of combat knives? Could make for some interesting variations.

Thanks so much!

So it looks like I'm just missing 5x Ammo, 3x Keycard, 3x Target Scope. That makes 47 cards in the deck (46 + Host). I'll send an email to Stronghold Games and see if they can hook me up with these.

After checking the enlisted compontents, I'm missing: 1 rifle scope card. I haven't played it yet, I'm waiting to the right group to play it. I guess I'll contact Stronghold Games too.

Shouldn't it be: 2x Rifle Scope card??
I checked my game contents, and have only two too.
Counting the above list, the sum would be 47 cards. The rules state 46 Search Cards in total, so my guess is 2 Rifle Scope cards is correct. cool

Oh damn.
Woe is me - I did a miscalculation. And I don't know how it happened...
It is true, there are only 2 Rifle Scopes.
Sorry, people...

I just received my replacements from Stronghold Games. Kudos to Stephen Buonocore and his team. They also included a copy of the updated rules (my copy of Panic Station came with version 1.0) and a boat to replace my broken one that came with Survive (30th Anniversary Edition).

And due to the misinformation given in this thread, I now have an extra Target Scope... whistle
