is anyone else seeing their Designer's Edition box start to exude gold paint? it's not coming out of the engraving, it's, like....faintly spotting in unpainted areas of the box. if it was doing this before, I hadn't noticed until now.

Call an exorcist! blush

I've seen really cheap painted plastics "sweat," and I've seen paints refuse to dry, but never something like this.
Mind taking pictures? The best advice I can give is change where you are storing it, it might be an issue with the humidity or temperature.

I've owned (at one time or another) 6 different SWDE and have never seen this.

+1 exorcist or storage change

yeah turns out there's a leak in the ceiling right above where I was storing the game. whoops and also lol @ myself for not looking up. there's a little warping in the veneer and the paint isn't as bright in some spots anymore, but not so's you'd notice if you didn't know where to look. and honestly now I can think about getting a custom box made. one with handles.

Alternately, you could sell it to me for $50...since it's "damaged" and all that...
