For an $80 game? Yes.

Really, the only thing was preface replacement parts with (you can see it on the page) is, "For you, does this detract from the experience of playing Scythe?" If your answer is yes, by all means, fill out the form. The MSRP of the game is entirely irrelevant.

Just for the record, I don't think this board should be replaced. Even if the wrinkle would have been large enough to be seen without macro photography, I would still say that if you have to ask other people if something is eligible for replacement, then it isn't (or at least shouldn't be).

I also agree with Jamey on the part that MSRP isn't a factor when deciding if something needs to be replaced. Hell, I'd even expect games with higher MSRP to have more tiny errors because they usually have more pieces and therefore the chance of one piece being erroneous increases.

I'm sorry for my tone but I'm just scared that this entitlement for picture-perfect components will get more popular if everyone just nods along in these threads. We have to remind ourselves that board games are being produced as games not as luxurious collectibles.

Well, we will agree to disagree on both the answer and the attitude.

Entitlement? If you were talking about a trashy $20 game I bought at Target, I might agree that expectations should be limited. But at this price point, people should be getting components that don't have obvious flaws. And, as Jamie said, the criteria is whether or not it interferes with someone's enjoyment of the game.

Looking at the pictures, I would hardly call the OP a whiner, that was really pretty defective. But I guess your mileage varies
