Ordered. Only $10 for shipping to the UK, very good deal indeed.

I imagine there are ridges in the grid to keep the plastic pieces from sliding.

Fair enough, wasn't aware that was a problem people had.

Playing with grandparents with shaky hands knocking the pieces by accident, people nudging the table, blooming cats, calming for OCD players who hate it when pieces aren't strictly aligned... all things we've had that this can help with. And it's more bling for a lovely game.

Does anyone have this already? It looks really tempting, but it's not exacty cheap for what it is ($22 with shipping).

I ordered one along with one of their overlays for Powergrid because the shipping was the same and it made my order a better value. Some of their items are made on demand after you order (the Powergrid item is one) so it took a couple of days to ship out before I ordered. I expect it should show up any day now; I live in Florida and it's coming from Canada so it has a few miles to travel.

Got it, and love it. Weirdly it's very easy to forget it is there in terms of visuals. Mechanically it's very satisfying placing pieces into the overlay which adds even more goodness to the experience. It's also obviously stopped the knocking and nudging of pieces when players are interacting with the board, especially when moving figures on the lowest level around if they are surrounded by completed towers.

Furthermore it turned up very swiftly. Count me extremely impressed all around!

Received mine yesterday and couldn't agree with Ian more. This is exactly the kind of add-on that I and others asked for during the Kickstarter. Well, actually we were asking for the island board to have raised 'walls' but still ... this accomplishes what that would have done perfectly.

I just received mine and can report it's a great product. Fits perfectly and really helps with the game. I play with younger kids and am a bit OCD!

That just really seems like something that would have been part of the game already, or at least a Kickstarter option. Well, at least with the reprint at Target, purchasing this as an add-on becomes more reasonable.

Does this fit the currently-available Spinmaster edition? Has anyone tried?

It says on the order page:

"This overlay fits on Roxley's Santorini but has not been tested Spinmaster's Santorini."

I'd hate to order it and find out it doesn't fit right.

Of course the building need to be exactly the same size too to fit perfectly inside the squares.

The boards are identical as far as the overlays are concerned.
