Hey everyone. Just got my game and a few of the tiles are warped. Anyone else get this? Is there a way to get them back to normal?

Just get some heavy books, leave the tiles in the open air of your house on a coffee table with the books sitting on top of them for a day. Flip them and repeat if necessary. It's probably just the humidity difference that caused the warping.

Mine were 90% fine. Had two that I stuck under some books for a day and are good now.

Thanks for the reply. Yeah, only about 3 or 4 pieces are warped, the rest are fine. I'll give it a try.

I had the same problem. But after a few days the warping dissapeared. I think the warping is the result of the extrem temperature differences between the time during transport and the warmth of your cosy home.

This is quite common with CMON (and other companies as well) games. It goes away after a while.

This. Leave them in open air to accelerate the process of the cardboard relaxing. In the game box they can take longer to normalize.

Wait, domestic US backers are starting to receive their copies? I didn't think we'd be getting them for another couple weeks.

I didn't have the money at the time for the Kickstarter or late pledge, so I bought it from someone in the UK.

Ohhhh. Well consider yourself lucky then, as you'll have the game a couple weeks before anyone else here in the States gets it.

I usually just cut the shrink on one side and leave it for a few days before taking them out. It helps to slowly adjust the cardboard to your humidity levels and prevents them from warping at all.
