Hi,
I know some folks picked this up at Essen,and some Europe-based geeks have already gotten copies in the mail. If you have it and have cracked it open, would you mind reporting the dimensions of the game board and award/milestone tiles? Inches or mm would be equally appreciated.
I’m making myself an insert for the main game and want to make sure I account for this expansion.
Thanks in advance!

I haven't played the base game yet, tossed the expansion box and put the components into the base game box, so I hope I'm replying to the right thing.


is the exact same size as a base game player mat (well, there might be 0.X mm difference).

The award and milestone tiles are 45 mm (measured at the peak of the curve on the top) x 73 mm.

Hope that's what you were asking for?

There's too much air on Venus, so you have to scrap a lot of it before humans can live there .

Actually, they slightly differ in width. The milstone tile is 73 mm, but the award tile is 65 mm.

That way, they fit onto the milestone/award captions on the board just right.

Crap. I didn’t notice that. I just measured one of them.

Thank you for catching that. Hope it didn’t cause any problems for the OP.

Ah, OK, thank you. So, removing the air and trashing it someplace else. I thought maybe this was a really-unfortunate typo for "Air Scraping."

I was just joking . I’m guessing it’s the unfortunate typo explanation, that’s the right one, but I haven’t read the rulebook to see whether there’s an explanation for the word - I much prefer joking and teasing to fact checking .
