i'm inquiring about the plastic version, if anyone has any experience with it?

i was wondering are the pieces balanced? (since some plastic is weighted), will they be easy to knock down and hard to place on the structure?
does the mold used to make the pieces produce round corner and sharp edges? (blunt edges will make the pieces slide off

any information is gladly appreciated

I bought the wooden version the week it hit stores, and gave two copies of the plastic as gifts this past Christmas. I'm not 100% sure, but I'm tempted to get a plastic copy because it plays so well and will be immune to warping. My wooden copy has only minor instances of warp, but the plastic pieces are just perfect. No mold lines or flash, just perfect plastic pieces. Weight felt more or less identical to the wooden version. I think the cards in the plastic version are an improvement over my wooden version (though newly-made copies of the wooden version may have the new cards too).

I have minor complaints with the packaging of the plastic version, but they don't amount to a lot when this great game can be had in such a great version for such a great price.

Publisher here- I have both. The plastic's weight is distributed the same as the wood. Plus a bit more durable in my experience.

I just got the plastic version. Some of the pieces feel surprisngly weighty. They stack pretty well, though easy to knock over, but I guess that's the same with the wooden pieces, too.

I've got the plastic version today. I was sure the pieces were molded to the shapes.
But to my surpise the shapes are assembled from parts (cannot say whether it is true for every shape or just some of them). Here is the picture

This way it looks cheeper than I suspected.
Just my 2 cents.

UPD: Some light after a play: nevertheless the pieces appeared well-balanced and with smooth edges (and more heavy than it seemed). So the gameplay is enjoyable.
