Most large cardboard components warp due to changes in humidity. Just leave them on a table under a heavy book and they'll be fine.

Boards warp due to one side hydrating or dehydrating at a higher rate than the other side. If it warped up, it dehydrated on the top. If it warped down, then it hydrated on the top. Flip the board over, and leave it out under the same conditions, and it will often return to the correct shape.

Yeah it's not an uncommon thing and something very hard to adjust as China is very humid compared to most of the world. Being winter in the US it makes it even more dry. So while the games were packed in a climate controlled room, there is always some humidity that can still cause some warping.

As stated above, just bend them back or flatten them out under something heavy for a day. You should be fine.

As James said above.
I have had this happen more than a few times.
Leave at room temperature under some heavy game boxes ( we all got lots of them?!).
Always ended up with nice flat boards

The cards are incredibly warped too. They either bend one way or the other. Very difficult to shuffle.

And most of the sector boards are warped as well.

Just opened mine yesterday for the first play and yeah, the sector boards are incredibly warped. Some of them sit 3/8" off the table on one side.
