Have a question?
@Krister Seva When retailers buy from us at wholesale there is of course a discount, but I can tell you that to sell the game at $40, they are not making much if any profit.
@Game salute but you can control the prices the retailers have to pay you for the game. As said below you obviously sold them at a huge discount for them to be able to sell them for 40$. I doubt they sell them at a loss.
@Balázs Varga Unfortunately we cannot control how individual retailers choose to price games, especially online deep discounters.
@Game Salute - you've handled this campaing shitty enough, and now you can buy the game in store way cheaper! i feel scammed in multiple ways!
@Game Salute - In the future offer Kickstarter Exclusives / Stretch Goals, instead of using it as a preorder engine. Obviously you sell them to retailers cheaper than we paid, for them to offer it at such a discounted price. If we're putting up the money for you to produce your game, it should be mutually beneficial.
@Overcast We completed shipping several weeks ago. Unfortunately we're not able to control what individual retailers charge for the game.
People in the Kickstarter are still waiting for their games, and it's available cheaper at retail for $40 with free shipping. I guess I've learned my lesson.
I compared 1st and 2nd editions thoroughly and there are other weird changes done to this.
Other than the three known removed cards, there's also no Black Market card anymore, instead there is Vital Information card that has a different effect. Actually, Black Market was a useful card in 1st edition that doesn't exist anymore.
Same with Effective Planning card that has been changed and High Ranking Informant and Document Atrocities cards that are changed in effect.
Also names of multiple cards were changed!! This is another example of Game Salute causing unnecessary problems. This makes rules questions incredibly confusing!
Some names are actually made thematically worse as well. There was a Forged Documents card in 1st edition that was about moving Hitler yourself. Makes sense as it's your forgeries. New one is Leaked Documents that does the same thing. One implies conspirator action, another foresight. Technically both apply, but change makes it less thematic.
Also, multiple pictures were changed on event cards as well. Didn't notice effect changes on these cards though.
@Lee Lowe Nicely done!
Played last night, fantastic game, we killed him in stage 7.
@Liam McCauley Glad everything got sorted!
Thank you to Starling Games & Ship Naked for quickly resolving my shipping issue (which was not their fault). Really looking forward to getting my hands on it now :)
@Martin Pring There are 6 Nazi Leader tiles including Hitler. The other 5 are Hess, Goebbels, Bormann, Himmler, and Goering.
@James L The dice are definitely not green, parchment would be a pretty close description.
Are the dice supposed to be green/khaki? They look like a parchment-like colour on the back of the box???
Question... Is there Hitler + 6 deputy tiles or Hitler + 5 tiles? (instructions say Hitler +6 on step 1 of setup) As I would be missing a tile and I cannot seewhere it would go either.

No sign of a shipping notice or a package yet for me in the UK
Game received last week. Already played and enjoyed it. Well designed. Only one regret: no predesigned space/compartment for the cards, dices. I had to buy deck boxes at my local game store. Ready for a next round. By the way we got him during the first round. Regards
@IcyChris Sorry, the sheet is not currently available on its own.
Any possibility to get the sheet?
@IcyChris The reference sheet was not included in the upgrade pack.
Got the Upgrade in Germany.
Couldnt find a reference sheet in there. Was this part of the first edition?
@Christian Gilbert Please use our replacements form at starling.games/replacements and we can help you with that.
My upgrade pack came and the manual had a huge crease in the middle of it that cannot be flatten.
Hugely disappointed in the shipping of this.
game arrived yesterday in germany.
@Dimiter Ganov Please use our replacements form at starling.games/replacements and we can help you with that.
My UPSGRADE PACK came with broken yellow wooden pawn. Very disappointed :(
@David Folksman If there's something wrong with the sheet please contact us at email@example.com, and please send a photo of the issues you're seeing. Thanks!
The new ones are clearly better, upgraded and linen finish
3:55 https://boardgamegeek.com/video/173146/black-orchestra/chits-and-cats-unboxing-2nd-edition I think I have been sent first edition tokens as replacements
Can anyone confirm the colour scheme used on the English counters is still orange on black? I received a countersheet that looks great with red on black colours and a real sheen to the finish. But it was in Spanish! I asked for an English one and it arrived all washed out with tiny iconography and washed out colours. The Spanish red version is much better.
Received today here in Norway
@Andrea Pace Yes, not all packages will have tracking. It is difficult for us to assist you with questions pertaining to your shipment in the comments section. Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or the shipper directly at email@example.com. Thank you.
@RAJ Glad to hear it!
Nothing here, Italy... I've received my tracking number but it takes me to a page that says: Your parcel has been sent on an untracked service.......
Well, 1 hour after having placed my previous notice the game arrived in perfect condition. The game looks beautiful and looks complete.
Still waiting for the game to arrive.... (netherlands)
@Erik H It is difficult for us to assist you with questions pertaining to your shipment in the comments section. Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or the shipper directly at email@example.com. Thank you.
Still nothing here, other backers in The Netherlands seem to have gotten theirs...
Arrived yesterday in Germany. Thx a lot.
Received in Germany, no notice, no tracking.
Recieved my copy (in Holland) in good shape. Looking forward to play!
Received in Ireland
No news in France yet...
Any hope of getting a delivery anytime soon?
Received email last Friday saying game shipped, but as of today Royal Mail still haven’t received it. It’s deceptive to claim that fulfilment is complete when it clearly isn’t. I have contacted ship naked support by email and through the web site to no avail.
I received by copy of the game yesterday, here in Finland. Didn't get any tracking email from GQ, which I usually got in other KS projects. Still everything seems to be in order, no dents or missing pieces.
@Balázs Varga I saw you submitted a replacement request already, we can definitely help you out with that!
Arrived today in Portugal.
