Hey,

I'm wondering if anyone can help. I've only just bought the core game (brand new from a FLGS) - I've carefully unpacked it and have been reading through the cards. - however I can't find the 'Weyland Corporation?' ID card. I've checked the whole box.

I've looked online and can see that it has a big 'W' on it. - I definately don't have it!

I've contacted FantasyFlight Games, but I don't know how much they'll be willing to help. - I find it hard to believe that they would accidentally miss out a card when they all appear to machine packed and sealed.

Has anyone got any experience in this area? - In addition, is anyone aware of any datapacks that would have the Core Weyland Corp ID card in it again? - Thanks

OR... has anyone been eager enough to buy multiple sets of the core game, and happen to have a spare one of these cards they may consider parting with? (I'm happy to pay for shipping etc, I'm in the UK)

Thanks again,

FFG is great about replacing missing cards and components from their games. I would imagine you'll be hearing from them soon.

You can check your cards to be certain none are stuck together. I've not had the problem Netrunner, but I've experienced it before with other cards games.

In the meantime, you can use a proxy for the card when playing Weyland.

Thanks,

I've already checked that none are stuck together

I have to admit, of all the cards to loose, I'm glad it was a main IDcard. - These don't need to be mixed in with the deck, it won't matter if the proxy looks a little different.

That said, if anyone would be prepared to part with one of their own copies (for a price?) I'd be interested. - Cheers

Wow I love BGG. - It's barely been an hour and someone has already kindly messaged me offering to post over one of their spare copies.

A big thanks goes to

We should popularise alternative art identity cards and make more of them

Don't worry.
If you write FFG costumer service they usual deliver easy replacement.

The third core set I bought had a really bad print on it.
The black ink (text) smeared when touching it.

I wrote costumer service, added some scans and they just told me they shipped replacements. (Were over 20 damaged cards)

I wonder if Ffg will honor replacements for cards that are one-offs, because that might be a way to overcome the lumpy distribution...

We will see.
One of the damaged cards was Corp Troubleshooter.

When I received replacements I can tell you what I got.

Under normal circumstances every card in the set has the same probability to be damage / lost.

Considering that cards would be ordered in the same amount they are included... unless people cheat to get extra copies.

If they have the ability to replace any card, do you think you can offer to buy a pack from FFG that fills up your core?

Certainly they'll tell you to take a hike. And if anyone has the gall to ask FFG to send them missing cards that amount to exactly 11 of the singles, I'd love to see what the outcome will be

Just a quick note to let people know that Fantasy Flight Games got in touch last night. They have already shipped out another card for me. How kind of them. - Top Marks!

ACE! I hope noone abuses this kind of generosity

(Even if it *is* called social hacking...)

Why would anyone want to cheat them that way? Why would anyone want to take advantage of their great customer service that way? Especially since the predictable end result is to stop offering this kind or level of service to their LCG players?
