Small, silly question, but my board has developed a few small stains in some locales from the red paint on the Allied blocks. On the one hand, I'm happy to be wearing in this lovely board from extensive play. But I'm also wondering if anyone can recommend a safe way to remove these stains. I'd love to keep the board in good shape if possible.

Seems like weird use of an india pale ale but I'll give it a shot.

I'd go with something over 70 IBUs to start with.

Ha-ha!


Just in case: isopropyl alcohol.

I wish I'd read that sooner. Anyone got tips on how to remove a light beer stain from the board?

Okay but I gotta tell you this seems to be going from bad to worse.

My cat pooped on the board. I applied a little water and allowed it to dry. The stain is gone but the board developed a very slight warp ever since. It doesn't affect gameplay but the board won't stay flat. Just so that you know the potential effect of water on thick cardboard. I find it strange because my cat never pooped anywhere but her litterbox.

The stain is no longer visible but I remember it was on a plain locale with no town.
