I quite liked it - but either I was playing it wrong, or I was just shite at it. I didn't win much in the games I played. Second mission was a pure ****

Typical!

Scenario 6 has a set-up error, and is missing a counter for the Tiger I, and also no data cards for either the Flak 30 or Flak 36 included in the game.

has anyone else reported it, that it's a consistent problem?  or is it just you got a packing error?

(mind you, I'm primarily inclined to think what I know you're thinking; I just want to be balanced about the assumptions)

The Tiger 1 was not supplied with Phantom Division, it came in OST Vol. 2. So the counter is not "missing" it's just in the main game that is a requirement to play Phantom Div.
There were no data cards supplied with Phantom Division for either the Flak 30 or Flak 36. Why, I don't know. So those are not "missing" either.
Oh, and in scenario 4 it should be "Flak 36" in both places.

Thanks, Vance, much appreciated. However, there is no Tiger I counter with Vol II for one thing, and, the point that I find really annoying is that the game info states that Phantom Division has new cards included, but clearly this is not the case, and ,as stated, the is no Tiger counter either although there is one required in scenario 6.

The details on FPG website are therefore misleading as it does not indicate that anything other than Vol II is required to play Phantom Division.

bummer that there's no countersheet photo on BGG to check it against...

There is. But you don't know you need the missing bits until you buy the game and try and play the scenarios. There are no illustrations of the cards so again, you don't know there are 'missing' until you buy the game.

This contravenes the Trades Description Act. The game purports to need only Vol II to play, which is not the case. I, as the purchaser of a product, have been mislead as to the contents of the expansion. :tickedoff:

If you just have OST Vol II, then no problem, although there are a couple of errors on the set-up info on some scenario's, the problems I have encountered all are with the Phantom Division expansion.

The FPG website does say that you need to download the data card for the StuG III, but it does not tell you that you also need a Tiger I counter and data cards for the Flak 30 and Flak 36, and I can see no downloads for these on the website or BGG.

So, I sent an email a few days ago to FPG with a query about the cards, etc. No reply as yet.

So much for customer service!
