I bought a copy a copy of Venture from the U.S about 3 weeks ago but it came the with the money deck damaged. It looks like something has cut the ‘Money’ deck diagonally across the top. When the deck is laid flat depending on where the cut is, you can determine if it is likely to be a payout card or not. This sort of takes away some of the excitement.
I emailed Gryphon Games from their website probably over 2 weeks ago about this problem but I’ve had no reply. I’m guessing they’ve been to Essen but it is November now and I’m getting a little worried.
Gryphon Games has received no email from you that I am aware of. What email address did you use? And where/who did you buy your copy of the Venture game from in the US? Yours is the first such instance that we have heard of concerning damaged cards in this game. Sounds like you got a copy that was damaged in printing by the factory, which is quite unusual but certainly not impossible. I recommend that you correspond directly to me at email@example.com with the info above and we will work with you to find a solution to this problem.
