Is it too short or too long? By how much?

    Shhhh. My Wings of War/Glory sticks are all off by a couple of mm too. It's incredibly difficult to get measuring devices perfectly correct, even nice ones used for manufacturing. That's why contractors always bring their own tape measures to the store when they're purchasing.

    Tap one of them as your golden copy. Whenever a measurement is close, that's the one that calls the tune.

Ouch. That's actually huge. Ask for replacement.

So, it looks like the "Anchorage" is giving/selling measuring sticks that are a half an inch too short...20 sticks and they've saved 10 inches googoo

If it's just a short range, then it means the line is in the wrong place? Or the stick itself is shorter?

If the line is in the wrong place then that means that long range is off as well. These were going for $5.00US each as an add on...seems like a bit of a rip whistle.

Just checked mine. The length is correct. The line between Short and Long range is perfect. What is off on mine is the Grape/Chain shot. It is about 1/4 or so off. So mine isn't about being miscut but not being properly laid out.

Looks like the didn't set the pattern correctly, then. Grape/Chain should be 25% of the total length and it is not.

I guess you could always re-score the measuring stick(s) to reflect the proper range(s)? That should solve the problem if the full length of the stick is still correct. meeple

Yeah, that would fix it. You could re-burn it or use a marker. Just a shame they didn't check it before they did it.

Yep, just plain sloppy work. Actually, seeing the wooden ones, I'd rather use the ones that came with the game...

You know, I think in general all this laser-cut/etched game paraphernalia would look a lot better if it had a quick coat of varnish or some staining to bring out the richness of the wood and add to the contrast of the engraved markings.

I might do this with my S0G kit (when I finally get it).

There was a change in the ruler size halfway through the production, which produced this mismatch between the wood version and the cardboard version.

We will replace the rulers when sending out the next wave of rewards, or provide credit for those backers who do not care about getting them replaced.

The cardboard since that is the one they directly controlled.
