Just received my game today in Northern California. Everything was there with nothing damage. Can't wait to play!

I did however notice that once I removed the protective tab from the timer it doesn't seem to want to turn off. Couldn't see any type of on/off switch. Thought maybe it was on an automatic shut off, but that doesn't seem to be the case either.

Faulty timer or am I just completely missing something?

Its just the design. I put the tab back in to preserve batter life (or just remove the battery after play)

Truth be told, the little pip-pip-pip-pip noise from the timer occasionally got lost in our crys for backup / support. Also it was hard for everyone to see how much time was left.

Awesome that they included one, but I'd find a super awesome phone timer app and go with that - something big, visible, and loud enough when the timer hits 0:00. Someone also shared some amazing MP3s here that had a 1 min warning, and a 10 second countdown, which I can't wait to try.

I use a Tabata timer on my phone or tablet. All the sounds are customisable so it has a 10 second lead in before starting, an air horn sound to start, a half way crash sound, the last 5 seconds have laser sounds and then a scream at the end. Seriously cool.

The timer is a 5 cent piece of not meant to last ...... Phone timers work great.

I found one app which work best. Turn Timer (IOS)
https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/turn-timer/id505961195?uo=4&...

It lets setting a time. It beeps once at 1 minute left then beeps consecutively for each minute after 10 secs and the ends beeps a lot.

I find it useful because one event/monster reduce 20 secs of your action phase time. It can happen to have both, so you will have 1m 20 sec.

At least you got your timer to work! I took the tab out of mine last night for our first game and while it was on you couldn't see anything on the screen. You had to tilt it to see the timer. In the end we used a phone.
