The map tiles in my game came out of the box slightly warped. It's not terrible but it becomes noticeable when placed together. Hopefully this will get better or at least stay the same, and not get worse.

What are you seeing in your sets?

Yeah, a couple of mine are slightly warped. Like you said, not terrible, but noticeable when the board is set up. I'm slightly worried about how they will stand up with use over time.

Mine were straight, got a bit warped on the first plays, but now (few weeks of play) seem to have settled on completely straight.

Mine started warping a bit. I gently back bent them and haven't had a problem since.

Full disclosure: I live in humid South Florida so most of my boards warp to one degree or another.

Mine have a slight warp to them too, nothing too extreme but it's there. Hope it goes away after playing a few times...

Mine are also warped after being out of the box for a few hours. I'm certain that this is from humidity. I had this problem with a different game, and the tiles never straightened out. I noticed that the cars are also slightly warped, but that shouldn't be a big deal.

fwiw, my tiles from the box were also fine. They've been out for a day and they're still flat... I'd say it's been above average humidity in Chicago, but it has been cool.

I haven't opened the extra tile set yet.

My board tiles have noticeably warped as well. I had the same problem with Settlers of Catan way back when, and those tiles eventually flattened back out, so here's hoping...

Quite disheartening to watch them get worse and worse over the course of a single game though, isn't it?

My boards warped a little this weekend but seemed to have settled a bit and flattened out.

Mine have warped more and more over four plays. It's pretty dry during winter here so it's not humidity for me. I hope they start to lay flat.

I keep mine stored in the little cardboard tray they came in, in the bottom of the box under the plastic containers I have my zombies and counters in. No warping on mine so far.

I stored my tiles at the original box bottom too, yet it warped a little bit. I try to straighten it by putting a few hard cover books on top of it. My place is hot and humid, I stay in Malaysia.

Actually that is the problem, since it was packed during high humidity.

Cardboard warps when it gets drier, which is exactly what your conditions are.

Might i suggest putting it into some humidor like condition for a bit, taking it out, and letting it dry with a heavy object on top. That should help.

Don't overdo the humidor part though.

Thanks for the tip. I'll try that

I actually just came to the site to ask this as well. The corners will begin to warp up and off the table for me every time I play. but stack em up when done and they all settle down except the top one. Next session and it starts to warp up again. I just don't get it.
