I like this little game, the asymmetry makes each play interesting and the design is very attractive, but there's one fatal flaw that ruined my experience after a few plays: some of the tiles have their back scratched or marked by white/grey dots out of the box.

This is pretty unavoidable on tile games I guess, but when it happens to a game that is all about flipping certain tiles it just ruins it. For example, my Sun tile came with a visible white cut line on its back out of the box, and after I realized it, now I know where it is at a glance. I can't even avoid it, it's just automatic - and this unavoidably shapes my play style, making me "cheat" against my will. It's really a nuisance that could have been avoided with more careful packing I guess, or slightly more resistant coating on the back of the tile at least cry

Have to give huge thumbs up to the people at Atlas games, who sent me a full replacement copy in the matter of days, adding a sweet note and a promo meeple. Some tile backs are still dotted by small marks, but no dramatic scratches that would make the game unplayable. Very happy to be able to play this finally
