So I recently received my copy of the 2nd edition. Gorgeous. But after popping open the box and laying out the components I noticed that the board was bent such that it pops up in the center and along all 8 corners of the 2 halves.

What's the best way to flatten out my board?

Many thanks.

I don't know the best way to flatten your board but you should contact Ares' customer support:

I had the same issue with my board. I asked Ares about it and they sent me a new board with a missing figure and a new deck of cards (One of mine was cut wrong by the machine).

I haven't had a chance to play with the new board they sent me, but I wouldn't be surprised if it has the same issue. I think your best bet is to put some books on it and let it sit. If that doesn't work after a few days, send Ares an email.

I have the same issue. The board flattened some after sitting on the table all day, but not completely. I'll contact Ares, but I wonder if I should get a thin piece of plexi to lay over it.

Thanks, guys. Am trying the "rest some heavy books on top of the board" technique before calling Ares.

Incidentally, my first edition board was also a little bent at the corners but certainly usable. My second edition board, however, looks like mini aliens are trying to pop out from under the corners!

Amazing. So I tried to fix my board without luck. Per Veldrin's suggestion, I contacted Ares and within 24hours I had a reply asking for my address so they could send me a new board.

That's what I'm talking about.

Thank you, Ares. I'm a customer for life.
