It's not to the point where it's unbearable but it's a pretty bad stink. It doesn't smell like mold or anything. I guess the best way to describe is that it smells like chemicals or something weird. It's funky. It pretty much fills up the room after opening up the box each time.

Mine smells pretty bad too. It seems like it's coming from the board.

Mine does have an odd smell, but I never really noticed it until you pointed it out. Smells like it may be the binder in the cardboard. You really have to smell my board to notice it. I would let it air out on the table for a night and see if it doesn't go away.

Mines been pretty much living on the table since I got it the day it released. I think it's pretty aired out now.

Mine had the smell coming from the bag. I turned it inside out, sprayed it down with Fabreze, and left it in the garage for a couple of days. Awful smell is totally gone.

I found the smell remarkably similar to that of Play-Dough (which I haven't smelled in decades!).

It's been a week since I played but I cannot say that I noticed any smell with my copy.

I just got my copy. At first I thought it was mold, but it's not.
It's a weird cardboard smell. I put a silica packet in there just in case.

Going to air it out tonight
