All my map tiles have been drowned

Recommended Posts

Hey,

 

Due to a catastrophic flooding incident (Ok, it was a minor-ish leak), my box of large map tiles was soaked through and they've been rendered unusable.  Thankfully everything else survived, but obviously I'm now unable to play (except in narrow corridors and corners - which very few maps are).

 

Checking the damaged/replacement stock part of the website, they specifically say they don't sell components separately, which is a pain as I only need the map tiles and am willing to pay. Annoyingly the internet seems to have twigged, and so prices for individual map tiles are waaaay too expensive....

 

Anyone have any ideas? Replacing the main game and 2 expansions will cost north of 100 quid, which again wouldn't be to bad but there's no benefit of having two lots of everything......Is buying the lot and then selling out components to recoup the costs viable? Anyone tried to do this?

 

Any help appreciated

 

Regards

Yikes, that sucks.

I think your best bet is to find someone trying to sell a used copy of the game, perhaps with missing components (they will likely be selling for cheaper because of it). So long as those missing components aren't the large map tiles you need, then you'd be a good match.

In the interim you could also build your own map tiles with construction paper or something and glue on print-outs of the artwork.. they wouldn't interlock and look nice... Would be gameplay-functional though.

Thanks for the tips, everyone.....One of my wife's friends, friends does a lot of art and craft stuff in his spare time apparently, and said he might be able to build replacements......

 

......This might even open up an avenue for cheap bespoke map pieces! Every cloud, eh?
