I'm trying to assemble the wheels on the production boards (Z-man ed.), but the bottom plug seems thicker than the hole. Should I just use more than "a little force"?

That's what I did and it worked, However, I was nervous about it, so it seems the holes may be a little on the small side.

Yes. At first I was also a little skeptical and thought it'd damage the board, but it didn't.

We've noticed that at the fair as well. A little more force will do the trick and the cardboard is thick enough so you won't damage it in the process.

Not entirely true.
You will slightly damage the cardboard. At least, I had to in order to force it through (it created little volcano-like bulges). However, because you attach parts on the other side you can kind of push it back and cover it up, so no worries.
Unfortunately, the smaller red and green parts that go on top are not all cut perfectly. Some holes are somewhat off-center. Again, not a big deal, but being a perfectionist, it does slightly irk me.

You're right, you'll obviously damage the area around the hole. I meant there will be no visible damage after you assemble the wheels.

I experienced the same problem. What bugs me even more, is that quite a few of the building tiles couldn't be punched out without damaging the printing on the back. So they got visible marks. A problem, which occured at most with 2 or 3 tiles in all my board games put together.

Yup, you have to forced the plug through the base. There's a small amount of tearing, but that damage will ALL be hidden by the wheel.

It is best to read the instructions before assembly, though. I didn't, missed the presence of the eight coloured discs, and had to lever the things apart afterwards when I'd realised my mistake. No catastrophic damage done, but I'd have been better off doing it right first time.

My tiles pretty much all punched cleanly. But then I have long adopted. The practice of using a scalpel to cut through the connection to the frame before punching on almost all of my games (Caverna was an exception - partly because of the huge quantity of tiles, but mostly because the tiles came out of the frames extremely easily).

This. Hasn't happened to me in a while. That a Rosenberg game has to be one that has this otherwise gorgeous component quality is a bit of a bugger.

It wasn't a big problem on this game, I was just not sure which would be most hurt: The cardboard or my thumb. It turned out to be the latter.

What a relif to find this thread, I didn´t know what to do and was afraid that forcing it would spoil the board. Was about to look for a knife to extend the hole or something. You should thumb up this for easier finding for other players.

The same thing happened to me yesterday when I got the game.

I was first using just a little bit of pressure in trying to get the peg through the dial board. It was not working. So I had to push really hard and it popped through.

But it did push out one side of the edge of the hole. Just a little. Grrrr.

So make sure you have the peg as centered as possible. And also, make sure you don't have a finger or thumb blocking the peg.

And once I put on the cover for the peg along with the cardboard doughnut, all damage was covered up completely. Yay!

This was frustrating to me as well. I did have success pushing the backside peg (the big one) through backwards each of the holes first, then flip the board press gently around the peg to remove the pegs, and reinsert them correct way. Doing this appeared to cause a bit less trauma to the hole. I would recommend that approach to others.

Thanks Curt - I'm glad I read this tonight before putting together my copy. This tip helped out a bunch!
