So, it'll still be a little while before we actually get all of your copies in the warehouse to ship out, but the factory that's making Area 1851 for us were good enough to send over a copy of the final game in advance for us to check out. I've already forwarded these photos to designer Justin Blaske for his reaction, and the only thing I heard was something like an explosion of joy. We're delighted at how well the game has turned out and would like to give you a small heads-up on what to expect!

Open it up and the first thing we see are the rules. All good so far.

      I've received my advanced copy as well, and have posted some pictures with no filter/better lighting. You can see them here: https://www.facebook.com/Five24Labs/posts/1006188546078110

      The colours are MUCH brighter on the finished game, it's just the lighting was awful yesterday! I promise that it all looks VERY vibrant.

      I agree. I'm hoping the colors are just faded due to a filter or poor lighting and that the vibrant colors shown during the campaign are a part of the finished product.

      Is the color way washed out on the printing, or do you have a weird filter on? Everything looks sepia or something here, and I can't really get a good idea what the game looks like.
