Game Cards - Damage Warning

Post by Waterhorse »

Statement of the Bleeding Obvious follows:

Do not under any circumstances, GET THEM WET!!!!

Nice cards to hold and play with but while having our best game so far last night, we had a number of them become collateral damage in a beer spillage and they were ruined in the twinkle of an eye!

The edges of the cards seem to be super absorbent with the black boarders turning to bottling paper and the printing pealing off. We were quite shocked at the rapidity of the damage and how the small amount of splash on the surface of the cards translated to damage round the edges as we tried to salvage the situation.

So BE WARNED! Drink it don’t spill it!

Well surely your Force Morale automatically reduces to zero if you spill the cooking lager...???

(And therefore you won't need the cards any more! :D )

This plus damage to terrain is why we do not allow ANY drinks or food at the table! Set up an auxiliary table or, and this is only about 80% effective, have cup holders off table!

Yeah, we generally do keep liquids away.

Standards slipped during lock down!

Total irony, we were drinking Corona at the time! Well apart from the spillage that is.
