I am seeing the edges on my game pieces flip up and that bothers me a lot. Has anybody else had this problem? I might have to paint the edges at some point to help protect them. I haven't seen pieces wear that quickly in any other game.

Just opened my copy from CSI and two of the board tiles are already pulling up on the corners. I glued them back down but that does have me worried. Hopefully it holds up to regular use.

I have noticed a couple of my counters also coming up on the edge, just thought it was my copy and chalked it up to damage when popping the units out of the cardboard they were cut from.'

My game pieces have suffered from this as well. What has worked very well was to slowly run the back side of my fingernail along the edges with medium pressure. This "creases" the edges of game pieces and keeps them firmly planted.

It is frustrating that they are coming up so easily, especially since the artwork is so amazing!

I don't even have the game, but could a little brush and some glue along the edges help?

Battlesystems here in the uk are recommending people use brush-on superglue (loctite if I recall correctly) to carefully edge their cardboard terrain pieces. The effect is to harden the exposed cardboard and almost plasticise it.

If you still have the punch-out boards it's worth a try.

I think there's a YouTube video from them on the issue but I'm mobile at the mo so don't have a link sorry.

I applied white glue instead to a couple pieces and I am going to stick with that instead. It seems to help quite a bit beefing up the edges. The cost of magic glue really makes it too expensive to apply to the ton of counters and knowing how tragic a stray finger can get with the magic glue, I will stick with the white stuff. I can see the tears rolling down my face with a white patch of missing tank on a MKIV piece.......
