    Default "The Shortening" Card List?

    Good evening,

    I received the game today and I have found some differences from what is written on the box and the number of the cards inside: there are 52 new battle cards and not 49 as written outside (I don't complain for this, but I would like to know if 52 is the correct number or not! :) ).
    Moreover, in the rules is written, in the section "New Battle Cards", that there are 16 new "Screw This!" cards and 28 new Monsters cards, while I have found respectively 22 and 30 new ones!

    Is it possible to have a complete card list as there was for the original game box?

    This said, the cards are hilarious as always and the game seems to be effectively faster than before! It's an add-on you can't miss! ;)

    Have a nice evening,


    PS: Poor Vaarsuvius didn't get to say "I hurt Xykon!" like the others...

    5 "Wandering Xykon" cards
    • I got my ass kicked by Xykon
    • I Hurt Xykon!
    • I Hurt Xykon!
    • I Hurt Xykon!
    • I Killed Xykon

    It's a total of 153 cards with two less "Wandering Xykon" cards and three more Battle cards than what is printed on the box. The box image was probably sent to the printers before the card list was finalized. I'm totally happy with having one more card than what the box says.

    I was confused with the numbers too, but since I got more than promised, it wasn't too bad.

    Unsurprisingly, I got the same cards as in Hamiltonz list. I suspect that the two "missing" wandering Xykon cards are the Xykon move token and his characters card (where you're keeping track of his wounds).

    The Xykon character card and move token are counted among the Xykon cards, yes. They're cards that you use when playing with Wandering Xykon, aren't they?

    The wandering version of the Creature in the Darkness and the Goblin Zombie were last minute monster additions made after the box was designed. Math is Hard had been cut from the game when it had different text, but was added back in at the last minute with new rules. Thus, there are three more Battle Cards than what's listed on the box.

    I have no idea why the rules have the completely wrong numbers, though. I guess nobody checked it.
