I was teaching the game to my son today and I looked down to see that the player mat I was using was starting to come apart (delaminate?). After the game I started looking at the others and saw another had the same problem.

I'm guessing some Elmer's glue should fix it pretty easily. Or is there something better to use?

I don't know what Elmer's glue is. But, i regularly use wood glue. The milky white glue. It fix most things that come apart from wood to paper.

The player mats are made from two pieces of cardboard that are glued together (after the top piece is punched, forming the holes you see on the mat). Sometimes the glue isn't applied perfectly, and those two pieces of cardboard start to come apart. Just apply a little glue between the two pieces of cardboard and they'll be as good as new.

I can attest that worked perfectly for me. I used wood glue.

Every house should have a bottle of pva glue. It is indispensable .
Mixed with water it seals porous walls prior to painting or hanging wallpaper, sealing chalky/flaky walls prior to tiling or plastering. Arts and crafts , great for kids to use - makes paper mache.
And it glues down board game bits! . Simply wipe excess with a moist cloth.

For applying between two game mat pieces I would use a small paint brush.
Easy clean your paint brush with tap water afterwards.

A bit off topic, but interestingly - "wood glue" in the US is usually a tan color. While typical PVA glue (sold everywhere in the US under the Elmer's brand) is bright white. To make it more confusing Elmer's also makes wood glue (as do a bunch of other companies).

I did several insert for my game collection and I always used Aleene's tacky glue. Super strong glue for crafting!
