As many of you know, there were issues with collation of the “token” cards in Empire at War. While we are settling in with the printer and working out the kinks, we have chosen to not create new “token” cards in The Dead of Winter. While we regret having to make this decision, we feel it is the best decision for the product and we do plan on returning them once we can resolve the current collation issues.

Unfortunately we have also come to find out there was an error in the printing, and that one card in the set was not printed. So when using the checklist for TDoW, please note that card 96, Hateful Naginata, is not in the set. We apologize for this error.

The Dead of Winter continues the tradition of great L5R sets giving you a vast array of options for your decks and a deep, intriguing story. We look forward to the upcoming preview season and the new environment this set will create!
