Nice perseverance that you kept going after the first spilt beer.

Bummer though, I feel your pain

Hey Matt, that sucks... Tell you what, pull the gears off the old one, send them to me, and I will paint them for you....

No charge but shipping

The first spill took out the lower left corner of the board with splashes up along the left side. Corn and wood harvest tiles mostly able to be salvaged. Main board ruined as the seam running horizontal between Palenque and Chicken Pizza ripped when board picked up. Second hit to the lower right corner, destroying Monuments and Age 1 buildings.

I am SO thankful copies are still available!

After spill 2 I just declared to game cursed by ancient Mayans and swept the pieces into the box. We played Shakespeare and Steampunk Rally instead.

My wife spilled half a mug of coffee on lots of the corn tokens and other bits when cleaning up after a game i had won. A quick reaction kept it off the board and the game isn't any worse for wear. It doesn't even have a coffee smell.

How about paying the shipping one way and I'll pick up the tab for the other way?

Very kind of you Chris.

Definitely some kind of liquids curse going on with this game. I completely soaked my rules booklet in the bathtub*. I dried it out, but the pages stuck together pretty badly.


*Some women read romance novels while relaxing in the tub with a glass of wine. I read game rules.
