A sleek set of character tiles for Orleans that greatly improves the tactile feel of drawing them from the bag!
The pieces are made of a hard plastic, similar to bakelite, and the graphics are applied via a 4 color heat transfer process, which fuses the images to the plastic in a way that makes them very scratch resistant, meaning they should last a lifetime.
This set contains the exact count of pieces included in the Deluxe Edition of Orleans:
- 16 Farmers
- 14 Monks
- 14 Scholars
- 14 Knights
- 10 Traders
- 10 Craftsmen
- 10 Boatmen
- Starting pieces in each of the 5 player colors (blue, yellow, green, red, black)
Note 1: As the factory figures out the best way to produce these pieces, they had some issues with consistently centering the images on the discs in the final production run. The samples we initially received and approved were perfect, but when the final product arrived, we found that about 20%-30% of the pieces had centering issues we considered not acceptable, ranging from slightly unacceptable to very unacceptable. Therefore, all orders from this first production run will be shipped TWO full sets, allowing you to discard unacceptable pieces, and still have plenty for a nice set.
Note 2: Since the deluxe edition contained 5 player colors, we errantly thought this also meant the other piece counts included in the game supported 5 players. However, due to note 1, you'll still have plenty of pieces since you'll be receiving two sets.
