Just got my copy today (Captain level backer) and I noticed the game mats were missing (I ordered extra on top of my pledge).

Went out to the kickstarter site and there is discussion about this. Ares is stating that they are aware of the problem. The mats were shipped to them separately it seems. They state that they should be arriving 1-2 days after you receive the game in a separate shipment.

Rolled mats are obviously going to be sent separately in a tube. I imagine some of the boxes and tubes are going to arrive separately and some at the same time, depending on what happens at the sorting facilities along the way. Even some maps before the game box. I wouldn't characterize it as a problem, or even an issue as Ares did, but a situation. Actually, knowing that the mats would have to be sent separately is why their charges for international shipping were so reasonable and why I got three!

I figured this might be the story. Was a little concerned but also suspected mailing tubes rather than in the (ingeniously-packed) box.

Beautiful throughout--except for one "smoke cloud," on which the "smoke puffs" were printed on a piece of wood which had been stamped with red letters, obviously the back of that particular piece.

No big deal, I'd planned to use stretched-out cotton balls anyway.

Will watch for those mats.

Just got an email providing tracking numbers for two separate shipments with the latter including the game mats. Apparently, a split shipment is the norm here. Not a problem.

Barry,

The "brown with red letters" peels off of the smoke puffs.
