All I can say is wow. I thought dealing with their card sleeves was bad, but this story takes the cake. This is very dishonest in my opinion. I have even met Seth and played Crokinole with him, he seems like a decent guy, but this is way over the line. I was tempted to pick one up after playing at SaltCON, but this is definitely going to keep me away. When I decide it's time to buy one, I'll go somewhere else. Thanks for the eye-opening story.

Excellent work on tracking this information down. I've thought about pulling the trigger on one of these boards a few times. However, with the various shoddy workmanship reports appearing here, as well as this new information from you, not only will I be shying away from these boards, but MayDay Games as a whole.

Awwwww Mayday why did you do this? You were doing so well. Cutting corners never gets you anywhere. This looks crippling for the company. Shame on you Mayday!

I got in everyone's hostile little face. Yes, these are wooden cubes from boardgaming. Yes, I'm comfortable with that. I am enlightened.

This is definitely an interesting story.

Is MayDay able to maintain their impressive 1% product return rate because you can't actually return boards back to them?

I would like to subscribe to The Superfly Circus

Seriously though, kudos to you for not being the 'customer down the stream that overlooks the glaring inadequacies' (to paraphrase).

I can't believe I just used kudos in a sentenceshake

Suddenly a shot rang out! A door slammed. The maid screamed. Suddenly a pirate ship appeared on the horizon! While millions of people were starving, the king lived in luxury. Meanwhile, on a small farm in Kansas, a boy was growing up.

Right, if you equate dishonesty with malice.

Wow...all I can say is...wow.

That is really disappointing. I'm not a card-sleever or bit-buyer, but I'll be steering clear of them in any way possible. That's pretty low.

Now THIS is REAL board game news, Pete. True investigative journalism that I've rarely seen in the boardgame world (please correct me if I'm wrong).

Rather than boosterism and press releases, this is the type of board game news we need.

Thanks, Pete!

This one reminds me of the big sock puppet scandal on TheMiniaturePage a few years back.

Having observed how Seth operates over the years, none of this surprises me. I'm sure he'll soon be spinning this whole episode - he's pretty slick at damage control / PR when he gets caught - but I'll never trust him, or any company he's associated with.
