Hi,

I bought this game at Essen and generally I appreciate it quite a lot, but two errors in the map are really bothering me.


First (this is a minor mistake, I admit) Missouri is spelled Missoury

Second (and that is really annoying ... I even lost a game because of it, as the others didn't want to believe that the map is wrong): In the German version of the game Lithuania (Litauen) and Latvia (Lettland) are in the wrong places... So from North to South it is Estonia, Lithuania, Latvia instead of Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania

I haven't checked for more errors.

I hope these errors are corrected in future reprints.

Cheers...

I didn't know what to do with my UberBadge, so I left it as a GeekBadge.

That's not good. Could you put stickers with the correct country names over the incorrect ones for the time being?

I guess you could, although it could be a bit fiddly. In the meantime, I just copied a page from an atlas although I admit it is a rather weak solution.

Trust me, the CGE people are quite angry with themselves for this mistake. The Missouri spelling shouldnt affect games, but the Latvia / Lithuania does.

Unless they are on the case already, I'll try and get hold of the original images from them and quickly whizz something up in photoshop so people can print out on a label and stick over the map.
