When I opened the decks of cards I noticed (how could I not??) that they were much closer to oiled paper than cardstock. Hoping that was a production problem, I shuffled over to the Geek... but from the comments I've read, that's the way it's supposed to be. Oh well.
I also got a badly misprinted card in my weather deck. It's one of the "no change" cards, and you can tell it apart from the others because there's a large sliver of white on its back.
I can't say I'm charmed thus far. Maybe that'll change once I play the game.
I had a devil of a time getting the stiff plastic wrapping off the card bundles in the first place. Hardly any slack to get ahold of, even with scissors. Split a couple of edges on the cards getting one pack open.
I plan to put them in baseball card sleeves anyway, and probably at least the maneuver deck into hard plastic protectors on top of the sleeves since they'll be handled, stacked, etc. numerous times.
Certainly not enough of a problem to deter buying this impressive game, just one of those production/packaging oddities you run into now and then.
Overall I really like the components and graphic art.
