Hi!

We have just bought Scoville and played it yesterday for the first time. We enjoyed it a lot but there has been one thing really annoying me: the gameboard is quite warped! So much that our meeples could not stand in the middle of the board.

Anyone having this problem, too? Is there something I could do to flatten it? Or should I ask TMG for a replacement?

Marcel

Mine didn't line up perfectly either. However, I wouldn't have called it warped. Many large cardboard parts are slightly curved when I get a new game. You should be able to very gently "bend" them back straight. Just grab two of the corners and kind of flex it. Worked for me.

Thank you, James. Maybe "warped" has been the wrong vocable but I am not a native speaker and "curved" would have been better. I will try to bend them a bit hoping not to post pics of a broken board soon.

Mine are the same way. They don't sit flat in the middle and the meeples fall over.

I would use the word warped. It's extremely obnoxious. We played this last night and it reminded me why I was so disappointed with the production. An absolutely beautiful game with this flaw is sad. Meeples constantly falling over and knocking around peppers - "where was this pepper?" "where was my farmer?" I'm looking at options to fix the board. Haven't found any yet.

Mine has absolutely no problems. You should try to get a replacement.
