On Sunday I finally got around to putting the stickers on the wooden blocks and noticed that one of the blocks chipped so bad I couldn't use it. I emailed Mayfair and received a response back from Uwe on the same day. The block arrived Thursday.
What a beautiful game. I can't wait to finally play it(I purchased it August at Gencon).
Thanks Academy Games
Had the exact same experience. Got the game the day before Thanksgiving. Sent an email off to Mayfair and Uwe responded the same day. Had a replacement for the unusable block the following Tuesday. All good.
