Has anyone else experience very bad bowing of their tactical board? How do you go about fixing it without breaking the board? My board bowed inside of 10 minutes of being on the table the first time. I'm not sure I will be able to even store it now.

Looks like a moisture issue. I’d contact DVG for a replacement.

I had the same problem with mine.
Contact Sarah at DVG she’ll send you a new one.

Glad I saw this thread - I had exactly the same problem and my efforts to address it using Very Heavy Books Indeed were unsuccessful.

I have been very pleased with DVG games with one glaring exception. The boards. I have had the same problem with almost all of my Leader and WF games. That's one of the reasons I have spent the extra $ to get the neoprene mats. It helps that I like them a whole lot better anyhow.

My board was perfect upon opening the box. Probably stayed that way for a week or so, but has bowed since then. I have the neoprene mat so I'm not sweating it too much. I'd guess it is the adhesive curing which causes the board to warp.

Mine is the same but since it is manufacturing issue replacement will have same flaw.
Instead if replacements I've just straightened it manually as much I could.

I got a replacement. It was badly warped upon delivery. Seems like serious production issues.

Yes there was a production issue with the boards for this game and DVG is aware of it.
I’d contact them again if you haven’t already.
Mine was warped badly also and although my replacement board was ok they did give me the option to get a neoprene mat instead.

I got a neoprene mat earlier (great customer service) because they didn't have replacement boards then. My warped replacement board arrived this week.

Since I have to pay a swedish postal fee for replacement pieces from outside the EU, which is no fault of DVG, the cost for the game will increase further if I ask for another replacement. So I guess I'll see how the neoprene turns out for now.
