What I do not like:
The map is printed on a normal paper and it can be easy damaged 🙁
The print is also not the best one – my office laser copy makes better prints 😉


There are about 20 damaged tiles:





The tiles are the smallest I have ever seen! The first one from the left is from 1822, next ones: 1893(my print), 18Ireland, 18CZ, 1846.


The biggest on from 1846 and the smallest one from 1822 :

and they are not flat 🙁

Fortunately for so small tiles, there are small station tokens:

Summary:
Now, looking at the quality of the game edition, I would order a version with a laminated board. In my edition, it is the only element susceptible to easy damage :/

If you have such a board? Please, send us photos, we will publish them to have a comparison with our version.

  1. I just got a message from Scott from AAG: “The 1822 tiles die is fussy and some tiles are not as perfect as others. Can you send me a photo of the ones that are bad? I can send repalcements.”
