The fate of any living game is that it will accumulate some cruft over the years. This game is no exception, with FFG releasing numerous FAQs to clarify rules and changes to fix broken cards. Some players voice frustration at the need for errata, and while I can understand this to some extent, it is important to remember that a game with an ever-growing card pool is essentially impossible to grow perfectly.
This set of alternate art includes 29 cards, many with only minor changes (per-phase and per-round limits, mostly). Looked at another way, having only 29 cards with errata – out of the pool of thousands of cards released – is an impressive accomplishment. Unfortunately, FFG does not have an existing solution for releasing errata cards to players. The only way to get the amended versions of these cards is to buy a new version of the associated product, with the new printing. For a game with so many products, each on their own printing schedule, it is simply not possible to have all of the most current printings.
With that in mind, I’ve created a set of alternate art cards for all of the cards (as of September 8th, 2019) with official errata. If you want to print them yourselves, I invite you to download them here (these are printable versions, which include bleed margins). Unfortunately, I cannot have them printed and then offer to sell them directly as this would be in violation of FFG’s community policies. That said, if you appreciate the work I do writing on this blog, creating alternate art decks, and maintaining the Hall of Beorn Card Search, I gratefully accept donations to help me cover the upkeep of these sites.
The cards are all included below, and it is an interesting overview of the game to see which cards were broken by players over the years. For the heroes, I preferred full-bleed versions of the existing art, since those are not available officially. All of the other cards have completely different art, to differentiate them from the official printings, and also to spice them up a bit. I tried to find the highest quality and most thematic art piece for each card, but if anyone has suggestions for alternatives please leave them in the comments below. Enjoy!
