Hi

All components of my new VG Titan have a really intense and bad smell. I laid the cardboard sheets out outside and it helped a bit but not enough.

Also the cardboard feels greasy (as if some finishing is missing).

Unfortunately this is so bad, it makes the game unplayable for me. Any ideas how to handle this?

Are you sure it isn't mold? In that case you need to dry the components using a hairdryer (outside).

If the smell comes from the printing (i am not surprised since it was printed in China) you can air the components for a few days.

Just leave it out to air. It will go away.

Do the above and you also might try putting a couple of dryer sheets in the box.

The various Chinese solvents need to vent. To speed things up a bit you might try setting out the components with a portable fan blowing across them.

It's always been my understanding that some of the Valley Games Titan sets had mold problems, which is why I didn't buy any myself. I hope whatever remedies you try can address the problem.
