 I just went to my local game store and bought A Change of Seasons. After going through it, I noticed that there were several cards that I didn't get multiple copies of. I was under the impression that every single chapter pack gave me three (or two for the older ones) copies of every card in that chapter pack. I did, however, get a very thick cardboard cut out. Not the brown "box" cardboard the comes in all the others outside of the plastic wrapping, but a white and tan card that was MUCH thicker that was actually between cards in the plastic wrap.

The contents of the pack are as follows (in order);

1x The Long Winter

3x Taxed Dry

3x Burning Sword

1x The Long Summer

1x Demon's Dance

1x Shadow Stalker

3x Wintertime Marauders

1x Theon Greyjoy

1x Maester Aemon

3x Southron Scavenger

1x Walder Frey

3x Secret Hideout

3x The Lion's Law

3x Vigilant Stag

3x Thuggish Tactics

3x Dragon Attack

3x A Game of Cyvasse

1x Den of the Wolf

1x Unconventional Warfare

1x Giant Cardboard Piece

1x A Time for Ravens

 

Is this correct? Am I overreacting?

 According to AGOT Dabbler, it looks like you have the right numbers:

The first 4 cycles were not printed in the 60 card (aka 3x) format.  So:

------------- A CLASH OF ARMS -----------------

The War of the Five Kings
Ancient Enemies
Sacred Bonds

Epic Battles
Battle of Ruby Ford
Calling the Banners

------------- A TIME OF RAVENS ----------------

A Song of Summer
The Winds of Winter
A Change of Seasons

The Raven's Song
Refugees of War
Scattered Armies

------------- King's Landing ------------------

City of Secrets
A Time of Trials
The Tower of the Hand

Tales from the Red Keep
Secrets and Spies
The Battle of Blackwater Bay

------------- Defenders of the North ----------

Wolves of the North
Beyond the Wall
A Sword in the Darkness

The Wilding Horde
A King in the North
Return of the Others

 

They are going to reprint the "King's Landing" and "Defenders of the North" cycles in the 3x format.

As has been pointed out, old chapter pack cycles have a different distribution than the newer packs. They contain 1x10 and 3x10 for a total of 40 cards, not 3x20 as the newer packs do.

also, this 40-card pack should have been cheaoer than the usual 60-card pack.

and look a the back of the pack: it says something about containing 40 cards (20 different ones).

 I once got a chapter pack with 4x Sweet Cersei(!) While I shouldn't complain about getting a 41-card pack, why couldn't it have been another card? [sigh]

 Okay, I must've just done wrong math. I was under the assumption that the 40 cards were 2 copies of each card, instead of 10x3 and 10x1. Thanks for the help!
