Just came across this game on Kickstarter, and I'm very intrigued by it.

It's nice to see a game which can support a wide player count, including solo. I plan to download the rules shortly, to get a better feel for how it works.

One thing I am wondering about, however, is the use of dry erase boards. In my experience, it's rare that they really erase cleanly -- especially if they sit over a multi-day session, which would be likely for me with solo play.

It seems that over time the cards and boards will develop a "dirty" appearance from the build up of residue.

Not a HUGE deal, really, but I have to admit it bothers my aesthetic sense, and the part of me that wants game components to always look like I just unpacked them.

Any thoughs from anyone on this?

Both hand sanitizer and Clorox wipes clean off the dirty residue on dry erase boards.

Thank you Xanthe!

We do get the same issue over time as well, but it is more the build up on the eraser than anything else. There are several tips and tricks, we generally use the Magic Eraser sponges from Mr. Clean. This product takes all residue off of the player mat without issue, and they can be reused quite a bit too. Works like a charm.

The erasers on the markers can be cleaned in this way as well, though if you play as many games as we do, at some point you'll need to replace the markers.

Thank you for reaching out and cheers!

Ooh, might want to moderate your use of those -- they're microabrasives (basically tiny little bits of glass fused together into a sponge-like material). Over time (or with overzealous erasure), you could probably take the finish off of your components!

Really hoping these boards will be upgraded (possibly through attainable stretch goals) to a dial or other type system to show stats....
