Several of mine have a lot of ink bleed and markings on the back. I have not been able to clean them off yet. Wondering if this is a one off problem or more wide spread.

Mine had a few minor spots of ink and very minor bleeding in very few spots. I was able to scrape it off with a sharp blade, very carefully over the surfaces. Looks nearly flawless now.

Picture? I don't have mine, but a visual reference would be nice in case I have a similar problem.

Mine had several small ink dots and one tile had two very large spots, almost looked deliberate.

You can scrape the big bits off with your nail and a bit of pressure, though. I then just cleaned them up with hot soapy water and a scouring sponge. Look perfect now.

Kinda glad I am not the only one with this problem and I hope to get a replacement from CMON.soblue



Edit: the smudge is more than just superficial; it's almost like etched onto the surface of the tile

Yeh 2 of my tiles had some black streaks. Will soapy water do the trick? Or a craft knife required?

If it's anything like mine it will just be dried ink on smooth plastic. Sponge and water with a bit of scratching away with a nail should be all that's required.

I have one betray tile that has black ink smudged on the back so it stands out like a sore thumb. Cosmetics wise it's not bad, but it does ruin the hidden information aspect. Think I will try cleaning it, and contact CMoN if that doesn't work.

Has CMON given you a response yet? Keep us updated. I'd like to know what happens in case I have the same problem.

I will post photos in a couple days when I get a photo. But 2 of them are like this. With substantial smudging making the tile very obvious. I tried scrubbing somewhat gently and got nothing. Haven't used heavier abrasives yet. Another couple tiles have small marks, but its mainly the 2 tiles with a ton of smudging that bother me.

Tried contacting CMON directly via Kickstarter, no response so far

I don't think CMON monitor Kickstarter so much - you'd be better mailing them direct.

Thanks for the heads up Redking; I contacted CMON via their website directly and submitted a ticket. Got a response this morning and my request is currently being processed.
