Hey guys-
I bought my copy during GenCon and notice that the board has flaws. There are bumps on one of the quadrants of the board. (One of the sea sections) While the image looks fine, it is not smooth and applying pressure does not remove them.
It is sort of like there is something under the image.

Is this a completely flawed print run? Or did I just get unlucky?
(I have written to Blue Orange for a replacement, but got curious as to the frequency of this issue.)

My board's perfect. You must have just been unlucky.

I've personally looked at around 50 boards and have not seen the issue you are reporting. Hopefully we will have a new board to you soon, but feel free to follow up with me via GeekMail if you have any issues getting your replacement.

Thanks.
I've been asked to email a photo in so need to finish unpacking and get that sent ASAP.
Hopefully it goes smoothly after that. :-)

BlueOrange is making it all right.

Definitely a company I want to keep my eyes on due to the great interactions I had with them both when demoing and then buying the game and now after the fact when I am receiving a replacement!
