I have some exciting news and some rather ridiculous news. First the exciting news...

Alter Ego Cards exchanged One Error for Another
Now the ridiculous news...Perhaps I shouldn't even mention this in the same post, but oh well. I'm embarrassed to admit that my good intentions were thwarted by another error. As some of you know, the original Alter Ego Expansion cards failed to include two symbols in the upper right-hand corner of the card. The "Can't play x2" symbol and the "Can't play as last card" symbol.
Although these symbols are not critical to game play (as the rules state that the cards function exactly like the base game cards), I felt the need to correct this and made the replacement set available to anyone who requested them. Shockingly, the "2/4" veneration points symbol on the left was omitted during the fix. While my artist Justin Schultz and animator Stephen Noce were both involved, it was ultimately my responsibility to catch these errors, and I failed. In fact, I found the very file that I sent to Stephen, pointing out the icons that Justin had omitted, but alas, you can see I left out the "2/4" symbol. After spending a considerable amount of time and money on this, I hope that you will understand if I don't reprint these a third time. Many have mentioned to me that either set is functional, and I hope you concur. I welcome your thoughts and criticisms. Please go easy on me. : )
