Hello there artofmurder, long time no post.

I recently purchased an interesting bundle of games on eBay, the Vcr game and FX, the seller managed to fit the vcr game components in the FX box, that is except for one crucial piece, the tape, but I know they've got it, and I'm sure they'll ship it to me.

My big problem, is that Its missing one clue card, and one investigation card, and I'm somewhat expecting the seller isn't going to have them. So what I'd like to know, is if the game can be played without them, or do I need to get replacements? Thank you.

You can definitely still play the VCR games if you're missing one/two cards. I've never played a game where we, the players, had to use the entire deck of cards in a single game (but I've also never played with more than three or four players at a time, so I don't know how it would affect things if you played with a full party of 10).

You could always watch it on youtube, and have the option to pause and forward to certain scenes with a lot more ease.

Cool, I'll probably only ever have five at the most.

Yeah, I knew it was on YouTube, so I wasn't to worried about that, well expect for getting what I paid for that is.

Thank you both. Smile

If you end up deciding you want a full deck just for the sake of having a complete game, send me a PM. I've got spare sets for both VCR games, and would happily send you whichever color deck you need.

I may even have a spare tape, but I'm 90% certain it's the Betamax version...so probably useless unless you happen to have a working Betamax player lying around.

Thanks, that's good to know.

I do not have a Betamax player, but the seller is sending the tape, so thats all taken care of.
