You'd think that they'd keep a record of what cards/prompts people who have played in previous rounds have had (or at least say that if you have played in a previous round, and if you show them your previous card) they would be able to not duplicate...

It would be useful! I was ready for there to two or three duplicates from the previous card, but nine seems excessive. What's more annoying is that most of them are duplicates that I either didn't fill in the first card because I had no idea what to do with them, or else prompts that I really struggled to fill, and will struggle even more to fill for a *second* time! *headdesk*

Maybe try messaging them to say you've got a lot of duplicates on your card and could you have another?

I've just trawled through the rules and FAQs, and I'm not sure that's allowed just because of duplications. I've also just glanced at Clea's second card and that looks like it's got about four or five duplications from her previous card as well.

I think the total list of tropes is about 75, so on a card with 25 squares you're going to expect *some* duplicates. I just thought nine seemed a lot. :-(

That's a pity. But I suppose you're right, with such a small list of tropes it would be hard to avoid duplications even when they're picked randomly.

I'd just come here to say that I've checked and 7 of mine are the same as last time, so I think it's probably fairly common. I've already filled one of the duplicates.
