The Mass cards in the new edition all state that 2 cards are passed. I seem to recall that the number varied on the cards in the old edition.

Can anyone confirm that these are actual changes, and if so, intentional?

If this is so, it's a critical misprint !

It's 1 card on the first mass, then 2, then 3, and so on.

This is a confirmed misprint, in the English reedition only. We will reprint new, corrected Mass cards as soon as possible and make sure anyone with a wrong version can receive a correct one instead.

More information once we have a schedule.

Our sincere apologies for this error.

Sincerely,

Thanks, Bruno and Eric. Good to know.

Can you confirm what these cards are supposed to be? Do they simply match the 1 through 8 on their reverse side?

Many thanks!

Sorry, one more question. Is there a difference in the direction you pass, per card? Thay all have the exact same wording on them.

Pehaps a comprehensive "spoiler" on what's on each Mass card may be helpful.

Thanks again!

Always in the same direction, to the player on your left.

Until we can get the new English cards re-printed and distributed, here is a link to a PDF with the correct information on the cards:

Thanks, all for this "heads up." Mark, I actually was just about to place my order through Coolstuffinc for this title. I know it's still very early, of course, but would you anticipate that DoW would be sending out free replacement cards directly to anyone who had purchased the game from any seller? I've heard great things about DoW (and other unnamed publishers might just print an errata and leave it at that!).

This seemed to be your statement and I just wanted to be sure so that I could buy with confidence this long awaited game. Thanks for your previous quick responses and for the pdf.

Even if you have to wait a year, get the game. The existing Mass cards can be altered with a marker and will work just fine. They are not a random element - they just organize the game turns.

666 are the last three numbers? In a game that takes place in an Abbey? I suspect the Inquisitor Generalis will be visiting this abbey...

Your message was from September 11. Still no word yet on replacement cards??

I also feel like customers should have been made aware of this 'mistake', especially if it was a known problem. For example, at Essen. I would have waited with purchasing the game and use my 10% discount on the DOW webshop.

I've been letting my customers know about the misprint, and they have picked up the game anyway (with instructions on how to fix). I'm also keeping a list so when repelacements are available, I'll be able to contact them.

And that's the way it should be done. meeple

Was talking more about Days Of Wonder.

They knew of this misprint since early September. Promised a replacement, but no news about that since. Bought the game in October at Essen at the DOW booth, without being told there's a misprint on some of the cards and that a replacement would be made soon.

I think it's time for an update on the matter.

These things take time. Sometimes many months. You may need to be a bit patient.

Fortunately, the game is still completely playable with a few strokes of a marker.

The replacement cards have been printed and are on their way to us now from the manufacturer. We hope to have the replacement cards available in early December. You'll be able to order them from our website at no charge of course.

Me too. I was at the DoW's Mystery of the Abbey website and people's queries there were going unanswered.

Re: Mass Card Changes in New Edition?
Arghh!, Sorry, my bad, the cards came in and I had our warehouse rework the games we had in stock to make sure that the copies that have not already gone out to retailers got the right cards, but with the busy holiday season, I forgot to have them send the rest out to our fulfillment center.

It'll still take us a a bit of time to get them moved and make them available, but I'm on it. Again, I apologize, I dropped the ball on this one, blushblushblush but am picking it up and will let you know when you can get them.

Okay, we're now accepting orders for replacement Mass Cards. You do have to register your copy of Mystery of the Abbey first though. Here's the link to the Replacement Mass Card Blog Post explaining all...

Mark, is there a way for me (a retailer) to get a few copies of the cards for my customers? I've been keeping a log of customers who picked up the game so I can help supply them with replacement cards. I have to check, but I think I need about 6-8 copies

I've asked Alliance a couple times but they didn't seem too interested in helping.

And frankly, a couple of them don't feel they should be expected to add their names to your database (and any subsequent mailing lists they may end up on, real or imaginary) due to an error on DoW's part.

Thanks.
