I just placed my pre-order after the most recent Wasteland Wednesday update. I was wondering if there is any additional information on what materials will be used for the player boards? I really hope it's not going to be card stock.

Also, is there any information on how thick the game tiles will be?

Thanks!

Everything in the game will be punch, 2mm thick cardstock which will make it 2.5mm thick once you throw in the printed material, roughly the same as the punchboard on Dead of Winter (and by roughly, I mean from the same factory). cool

I personally absolutely *hate* player sheets that are card stock. I mean, we've done them in the past for cost reasons for less expensive games, but this is a big 80 dollar game, and when you have a bit 80 dollar game I think the following should be banned:

1) Card Stock Player mats
2) Stickered Dice
3) Flimsy components

I completely agree. I understand that the cost of a game is more than just the components. But it's always a bummer when I open a big game and see card stock player mats.

Thanks for the update!

Thick chipboard is the way to go! They are much more robust. Great to hear!
