The map tiles in the expansion don't match. In fact, I even have one tile that doesn't even match the other expansion tiles. Something is weird about it and you can tell it apart from all the other green tiles that I have (Base game + Expansion tiles).

Yeah my map backs are completely jacked in the expansion. The colors are so far off from the base game it's ridiculous. I haven't had to use them yet so I don't know how or if it will affect things but still a pain.

Is there an option for "none of the above?"

Maybe I have bad eyes or play in poor light, but I have not had any of the above troubles with my game and expansion.

In my case, the expansion map tiles are somewhat bigger than the base game tiles. Only by paying attention to the map tile pool you can tell which tiles come from the expansion.

There is no "nothing wrong" option in the poll. Or are you just trying to nail down which issues are the most common?

Pretty much. I will add a separate poll for "all seems fine"

I missed "map tile backs don't match". Other than that, my expansion was perfectly fine, and the base game's issues were fixed with the replacement components I got.

Crap, I knew I forgot something. I added that option. I find it hard to believe that was all that was wrong, but maybe these problems are worse with the English/U.S. version of the game.

Heh, mine is an US import I prefer playing games in their original language, there's no translation errors then.

My base game was essentially perfect except for the artifact cards (and a couple others) with a black line. My expansion artifact cards also have a black line, and the coloration of all card backs is just lighter enough to notice the difference. There were some tokens (mainly all the new skill tokens) that were slightly damaged, but otherwise I have had good luck with the components comparatively speaking.

Base game issues:

Missing a couple of shields and maybe 1 green crystal or something (not a big deal)

Game came with 2 copies of the 3 white mana -> 7 fame Ruins, and did not have the Grey + Purple Ruins.

Replacement Ruins tile was punched in the opposite direction than the Ruin tiles from my base game (not a big deal for me).

Expansion issues:
Crystals are cloudy and look like crap compared to base game crystals. Otherwise everything was correct.

I checked "something else" for "I got two of the same skill token but was missing a different one."

Mine came with no issues whatsoever, everything was in place and complete, both the base game and then later the expansion. I actually put a lot of care checking all the pieces since I knew there were some issues with it, but was happy to complete the checking and everything was fine.

My base game deed cards had some chips or dings or scratches on their backs and near the edges. I received replacement cards which were useless as they had different coloured backs which was reported in countless other threads. I left it at that and just play with the game as originally shipped.

I know the black streak was present in both my replacement cards and the ones form my 3rd printing as well as the Expansion Artifact cars but I don't remember if they were on my 1st printing cards.

Two cards with damaged backs and one with a damaged front. All have been replaced. Too bad they had a slightly different tone on the back, so they are distinguishable if you pay attention.

One of the brown map tiles is slightly damaged on the back, didn't notice that until AFTER I ordered the replacement cards, forfeiting my chances of ever getting a good one. I now have to keep the tiles hidden while playing so I don't know when the marked tile is on top. Very annoying.

Other than that, perfect.

EDIT: Second printing.

You missed the expansion token backs don't match either. They are much darker/richer in color than the base game ones.

Edit: And by tokens, I of course mean enemies.

I figured the "tokens back don't match" choice would cover that.

My expansion tiles are slightly bigger and off colour so I end up with a wonky map with gaps in it. Oh well, WizKids replacement is such a hassle I really don't want to bother.
