Colonial Twilight Card Issue

The good news about Colonial Twilight is that we’re getting a ton of feedback on social media and BGG about how much fun you guys are having playing this newest COIN series game. That’s gratifying, and speaks to the skill and care with which designer Brian Train and developer Jordan Kehrer crafter this game. We hope this first 2-player COIN game will give rise to many other such designs.

Unfortunately, the bad news is that there was a card error at the printer on the Colonial Twilight Project that we didn’t catch before we were sending out the P500 orders. The specific problem affects cards # 52-55. What happened is that Card #52 (Cabinet Shuffle) was not printed at all, and card #56 (Hardened Attitudes) was printed twice. So we’re missing card #52, and current card #s 52-55 are “off” by one number. Thankfully, this issue doesn’t keep you from playing and enjoying the game, but it’s something that we are fixing right away.

What we’re doing to address the issue: 

First off, we have not shipped any distributor copies of the game (only P500s) and won’t ship any until we have the corrected cards and can update the copies of the game we have in our warehouse.
We are reprinting cards #52-55 and will ship them at no cost to all who ordered the game using the P500 program. We don’t have an exact timeline yet, but have ordered both expedited service at the printer and expedited shipping, so we think we should have them ready to ship out by mid-August.

In the meantime, so that you’ll have the correct information to play with, we’ve added a pdf of all corrected and renumbered cards #52-55 to the Colonial Twilight page on our website.

For quick fixes, either:
If you sleeve your cards, just print out the new versions from the pdf and put them in sleeves until the replacement cards arrive.
If you don’t sleeve your cards, take the redundant #55 “Hardened Attitudes” and write “#52 Cabinet Shuffle” on it, and when it comes up in play read the text out of the Playbook or from the pdf version of the card.
We’re very sorry for any inconvenience this error has caused. We’ll have your updated cards to you as quickly as possible.

So, perhaps mid-August.
Thank you for your patience, everyone.
