My copy just arrived but off the bat I am reluctant to open it due to the weird way the box was handled... It's a tough cardboard box surrounded by a sleeve with the games graphics on it.

Anyone have any play experiences yet?

UPDATE

So I opened the package anyway after reading comments on KS about broken wooden cubes and am sad to say I have the same problem going on.

The cubes aren't broken per se, some of them are glued together to form groups of 2 / 3 or 4. Some of these have come loose. The main problem now is that is is not really clear how many of these bigger buildings there are supposed to be in the game as the reference and sticker sheet does not correspond to the number of single cubes I have in the bag (especially the green ones).

It would be helpful if the designer could give a more comprehensive list here as to which sticker numbers (which have to be put on the buildings?) must be place on which cubes (colour and number of cubes please). Before I see this list I won't risk glueing cubes together only to find out later I made a mistake somehow...

The blog post is clear enough, it can happen no worries.

It's a minor issue, and can easily be fixed with glue, just as the blogpost says.

A few tips: the old glue comes of pretty easily. Almost as easy as removing a screen protector film from your phone.
Wood glue does not work well on the painted blocks. They seem to be fixed, but after dropping them 15 cm mine broke again.
Either use different glue, or use sanding paper to roughen up the blocks, or even remove the paint from the sides you want to glue. Or find another solution!
