I just received a Fields of Arle promo and it appears to have a printing flaw. It has a nasty wrinkle down the middle (view large). Not the worst, but disappointing nonetheless. Has anyone else found this?

It only happens to people who open the Advent calendar before the appointed date. If you had just waited...

Hehe. I would never do such a thing, I actually purchased it from the BGG Marketplace.

Ok, you're off the hook then. I'll remember this thread and respond when I find that Fields of Arle promo in my calendar. Whatever day that might be. I'm sure someone will be along sooner...

That does not look like a printing fault, but as it was bend in the post.

Thanks. Frosted Games replied to my email within a few hours and offered to replace it. Very impressed!

Wow, that is impressive. Especially when offering this to someone who didn't actually buy the calendar.

(I agree with the above btw, bent in the post is most likely.)

My calendar box was squished in the post, and I had to take out all the promos to check that they weren't damaged. The cardboard sprues took most of the damage, but annoying nonetheless.

I would have been happy to pay for it... The alternative would have been for the BGG seller to ask FG for a replacement and then send it to me, but this way is less hassle for everyone.

I do not believe it was bent in the post. How do I know? The card underneath and inline is unaffected. Some people are saving their calendars, so we may see more faults in the coming weeks.

Geekmail is always an option. Writing me via Facebook message as well.

On the website you can go to very bottom and click on "impressum" to find an e-mail address.
