Replica tiles sets on Ebay
« on: June 07, 2019, 01:11:58 PM »
I have notice that there is a seller - with UK address - selling replica tiles sets. It appears that these are 'home made' copies of normal expansions. I assume that he is buying blank cards and copying  the tile sets on to these. Is the legal?

These are "non-legit" copies availlable for purchase in China. (or via aliexpress/alibaba)

They are often indeed Chinese replicas.
You can tell by the strange box arts (like combinations of different expansions and different publishers)
Tile quality is usually bad, with shiny finish, or low resolution
I remember there being a replica like that from the "Belagerer" expansion, where they actually printed the artwork on the wrong side of the tile

Nope. You should report the seller to eBay and maybe they will do something.

Nice job pointing it out! :(y) :)
