Question about Carcassonne Big Box 5's contents
« on: October 04, 2017, 07:02:02 AM »
Howdy,

Today I received my second-hand copy of Carcassonne Big Box 5. Going through the contents and checking with the content list in the manual I noticed a discrepancy in regards to the Sheep and Wolf tokens. The manual states I should have 6x Sheep3 tokens and 1x Sheep4 token. However, I count 5x Sheep3 tokens and 2x Sheep4 tokens. Is this a known error in the manual or do I have an incorrect count of Sheep3 and Sheep4 tokens?

Thanks,

The Scandinavian box content is as follows:

5x two sheep
5x three sheep
4x one sheep
2x four sheep
2x wolf

The Swedish rules says: the exact same.

I have the English copy as well and it's all the same there, contentwise but an errata in the rulebook.

Thanks Paul for looking into this. Looks like I have the same contents. It's likely an error in the Dutch manual then...

FYI, I also checked the contents of the stand-alone expansion and these contents match as well. I can only conclude that the Dutch manual has a typo.

I also checked the American stand-alone version, and it's OK.
Maybe they intend to have 6x 3-sheep-tokens and 1x 4-sheep-token early on, and made the change afterwards, but forgot to change the manual? Does anyone know the full story behind the curtain? :o

Typos in manual has existed for ages so undoubtedly it's just that, a typo.
  In regards to Carcassonne I've seen several in the Swedish versions.

Good ol' human error for there is yet a 100% proof translator. ;)
