I got my copy of the game last night and while punching it and looking through the bits, I noticed that the two punchboards with the boxes, cowboy tiles, and hats each have a small slit in the cardboard near the hats with the words 'Folding Line' printed next to it. The slit doesn't appear to go all the way through the board and the Rules book didn't have any reference to it that I could find.

Does anyone have any ides what this 'Folding Line' is for or about? I have held onto the punchboards for now in case.

You fold the stands that you put cowboy nameplates on, are you referring to that?

No, that indication on the punchboard is just showing you what a "folding line" looks like so you recognize that you need to FOLD the boxes / nameplates rather than SEPARATE the sides of the boxes / nameplates.

Oh, I think I see. So it's just an example of the "Folding Line" cuts on the boxes, so that you don't mistakenly think that the punch was poorly done and try to cut those folds apart. Makes sense in a not entirely intuitive sort of way... Thank you for clearing it up.

I was wondering the same thing until I realized they should have put "Folding Line Example" there instead of just "Folding Line."

While yes, it is a folding line EXAMPLE, from a engineer's standpoint I'm guessing it's actually to monitor the depth of the fold line cut during factory production. That way they can measure to make sure it's not too deep (or not too shallow) without touching the actual pieces the players will use.
Confused me too!

yeah, I came here to post my theory that it is a quality check. To make sure the fold-cuts were done, done on the correct side - maybe depth check as well.
