Dale of Merchants – Update pack

Refined card effects

A small number of cards in the Dale of Merchants series can create gameplay issues when combined with the new mechanics introduced in Dale of Merchants Collection. To address this, the cards in question have received slight tweaks which will be in effect for every new print run of the games going forward. For the owners of older versions of the games, we’ve made a free update pack which includes a full set of the changed cards and also a few cards that have had their card text reworded or clarified.

How to know if you need the update pack?


Any Dale of Merchants games printed in 2019 or later will include the updated cards by default. Games older than that have the original cards and their version numbers are listed below. You can find the version number of your game at the back of the game box near the bar code (or on the card with the bar code in case of the Beaver expansion).

If you own one or more games with the old versions of the cards, you can order the update pack from our online store. The pack itself is free so you can purchase it by paying only for the shipping. Alternatively, you can add the pack to your order while you purchase something else. Please note that while the update pack is always beneficial, it isn’t absolutely needed unless you plan to combine your game with Dale of Merchants Collection.
