Counterfeit copies of 2E

We have recently learned that counterfeit copies of the game are being distributed via Amazon’s Fulfillment by Amazon service.  We have purchased confirmed counterfeit copies of the game from the following third-party retailers on Amazon:

FastnBest LLC
Daily Deals Shop (NO TAX)
Tax Free Tech
Speedybuyllc

Of course, more may show up and we will continue to monitor this situation. If you bought a counterfeit version of the Dominion 2nd edition game, we encourage you to return it to Amazon for a refund – and hope you will buy another from a reputable retailer. Of course, most sellers are selling legit games, including, of course, Amazon itself. For those who are uncertain if the game they bought is a counterfeit, there are two obvious differences. The counterfeit game has a VERY badly made plastic inlay with crumpled in the plastic and the artists names on the cards are not white, but tend toward orange and red. If your game has this, it is counterfeit.

I think this has just been going on for a week or so. They have only seen this for Dominion 2E. I believe the cards are also bendy.

Well I don't imagine anyone having a lot of fun with a Dominion edition where every card is Counterfeit.

Sounds like they probably aren't too durable, either. Perhaps you can only play two games with the cards before you have to throw them into the trash.

Well, cards like embargo can only be played once before you have to throw them into the trash.

Does that include the update packs, or just the box with the entire set? Just wondering because I finally picked up the Dominion and Intrigue update packs through Amazon last week. They both look ok as far as I can tell.

I swear the forum software glitched and Awaclus' and faust's posts are transposed for the OPs.

I was putting sleeves on all my cards, and I remember Mine seemed bendy. Hope I don't have any that are counterfeit.

The only product Jay cited was Dominion 2E itself, the 500-card main set.

They'd be better than that. With Counterfeit you play a card twice before you trash it.

Counterfeit counterfeits? That's going to create a little confusion around here ...
