I got the possibility to play Potion Explosion a few days ago and I really enjoyed! Actually so much that I instantly wanted to order it.

However, several posts here and elsewhere indicates that the quality control of the marbles hasn't been top notch (some even suggests a risk of cutting yourself) and that it seems difficult to get these marbles replaced. I'd like to order the game but if this is the case I guess I'll pass.

So, do anyone know if the quality control has been improved?

There is 8 replacements marbles in the box (at least in the french edition of the game). 2 for each colors.

In my box, I had one dented black marble, when I opened it and last time I played, there was a yellow marble that broke in half. So those replacements came handy.

There seem to be different batches of marbles around. Not sure if it's linked to the publisher/version or not...
I have the "999 Games Dutch first edition (2016)". After unboxing, I already noticed that all yellow marbles were a bit 'off' compared to pictures of other sets in the BGG Images section. There are only 8 replacement marbles in the box; 2 for each color. After a quick email to 999 Games, they immediately dispatched a new set of yellow marbles to me. Problem solved. Great customer service!

Left the yellow marbles delivered with the game, right the new replacement marbles:
