This is a strange one but someone in my gaming group brought Too Many Bones along to play for the first time yesterday. It was awesome!! And he was so passionate about the game, which made it a really fun experience for all of us playing.

There was one problem, however. One of the players put his cup of tea on his character reference sheet!! I guess none of us noticed for a while until the owner very nicely asked him to remove it. It turned out the cup had completely damaged the character reference sheet! It has got all bent out of shape and has a permanent cup ring indent! Unbelievable! The player didn't apologise and no more was said, but I could tell the guy who brought the game really cared about the game and looked after it, and I'n really upset it has been damaged for him after one play! It's also not a cheap game!

Any recommendations as to how I could acquire a replacement character sheet for him? I assume these can't be bought separately anywhere? There's obviously the added complication that it isn't my game (plus the game didn't arrive fauly), so I don't know how easy obtaining a replacement would be. I have to say, I haven't come across a situation like this before!

If you are willing to print one out, there is new revised copies of all the character sheets online on their site.

They will be offering a 2nd printing upgrade pack with updated character sheets and cards this summer. No price announcement yet, but maybe your group can split the cost of it with him or something.

Hi Sam, glad you enjoyed it! I'm the owner of said game from yesterday's meetup.

The problem with the character sheet was a real shame
But luckily the character reference sheet is really sturdy and apart from some slight discoloration, everything is still legible and there should be no lasting gameplay impact.

You don't have to worry about a replacement.
It would be good though for the boardgame meetup hosts to occasionally remind people to be careful with other people's games and treat them like they'd treat their own (even though this should be common sense!)

That's interesting... I might consider getting the upgrade pack regardless (as the updated reference sheets are really cool).

So maybe if someone else in the gaming group buys Too Many Bones, they can order the upgrade pack for me (which will presumably save on shipping costs) and I will pay for the price of the pack itself (excluding shipping).

Class act George. Everyone should be like you.

And everyone should remember to treat other people's games with respect.

I'm not in your gaming group, but after seeing you handle a potentially ugly situation with class, I'm paying for your upgrade pack when it goes live.

Seriously. My email is jasonmillerbgg@gmail.com. Shoot me an email and we can figure out logistics.

Wow.. So generous of you!
Lets wait until the upgrade pack goes live, and we can work something out ...

Wow I didn't have time to access BGG over the last couple of days and so have only just seen this. Thanks so much Jason, great outcome for George. I agree he handled the situation so well which is what prompted me to see what I could do to help him in the first place! I wasn't even aware of the upgrade packs coming out. Thanks a lot for your generosity. What a lovely community we have!

So apparently we found the weakness of the nearly-indestructible plastic cards and sheets: hot mugs. I wonder if there was just a little bit of melting happening.

Glad to hear the generous BGG community is helping you out. Lack of respect for others' propery is part of why I've stopped going to public meetups. It's not many people, but it's enough that I usually see one or two cringeworthy moments at any of the bigger local public meetups.

Well this topic has come to an interesting development.
Last week I solved the Riddle.
https://boardgamegeek.com/thread/1755555/riddle/page/1

So I was expecting to receive a special reward (I am not going to spoil it).

Today the postman came, and besides the expected reward, my package also included... a complete set of brand new character reference sheets!!

I can only assume that the amazing guys at Chip Theory Games read this thread and decided to replace my character sheets! Many thanks!!

Wow! That is really cool. I have been extremely impressed with how the guys at Chip Theory Games have run this Kickstarter campaign and their company.

That sucks! I hope you'll get it sorted out and find someone to buy the games.

Thankfully Gavin was prepared to send one "all in-pledge" over to me in Germany!
Sooo nice! Was able to play today 1st run with 2 of my sons - we all loved it.
The shame of the "pull-outers" was a blessing to me!kiss
