Finally had a chance to open up my Kickstarter'ed copy of Tooth & Nail: Factions. Anyone else have issues with card quality? Each sealed pack of cards had the same problem - all of the cards were stuck together, and even with careful, patient removal the backs and fronts of the cards have wear from being detached from each other. A few cards were even wore thin during the detachment, with parts of one card left on the back of the others! Seems like this would happen if the cards were printed and immediately sealed in cellophane before having a chance to dry...

My copy of Omen showed up with NO problems, and I was super happy with it. I'm pretty disappointed with the quality of these cards - sleeving them protects from more wear, but with continued play it will be easy to predict which cards are coming up in a draw given the odd wear spots.

No issues whatsoever with mine. I'd contact Small Box directly. Always better to go to the right folks first instead of heading to the forums, in my experience. They'll make it right.

No issues here either. Sounds like an isolated case.

Other than the cards being a little on the thin side, and the Action cards being a bit bowed, nothing like you describe. Sounds like your packages were sealed before the ink was dry on the cards? I'm sure SBG will give you replacements no problem.

The only problem I've had with the cards is finding enough time to play them.

Opened mine last night, they were just fine. I actually thought there was a packing error for a second as there are only the four Dogs of War in each "packet" of cards, until I looked at the rules and realized that was also correct.

Same here... cards have started to show some wear already, but that's about it.

I was too late for the Kickstarter, but I did pre-order my copy and the cards are perfectly fine. I went ahead and sleeved them to prevent any future wear as I do with most games.

Sorry to hear you have a bad batch - my cards are all good - I prefer a linen finish but I always sleeve so no problems at all.

My minor grizzle is the size of the supplied sleeves - way to big guys - I will use some others I have. Could have saved some cost and post!

My cards were all fine. However the included sleeves were a bit larger than the cards.

Got my cards from the post last week. Have no problems with them but as said before, the size of the sleeve protectors are way too big. Couldn't put it into the box once the cards are sleeved. Was fortunate that I have some smaller sleeves that can fit the cards in so no major issue with me.
