Customer Reviews

In general I’m happy with the purchase. But there a a few super easy improvements could be done by the manufacturer to make the product just perfect. I’m going to fix it on my own:
1. A few fabric pads have the glue came through which scratches the board. Will reglue them or the entire set.
2. The storage room is made of very sharp and strong foam combined with glued fabric on top which scratches the figures while tough operating. Will replace it with much more gentle foam.

One piece already demagnetized.

At the onset, this set was fabulous. In less than two weeks, one of the pieces no longer sticks to the board. The magnet does not work. Not sure how they could have happened. It's a beautiful set and will still work, but we bought it for the students waiting for the bus, so they could continue their game the next day. The piece doesn't stay in place.
