Unfortunately you only have a few options...

1) Buy a new base game.
2) Look for someone who is selling the game in parts on eBay.
3) Buy the Winter/Desert board and ignore that you're always playing in sand or snow.

As far as I know, DoW doesn't sell the board on its own.

Buy a 2nd hand base game if you can.
The extra figures, sandbag, wire (not mines) are helpful. Extra cards and dice too.

Interesting...my base sets didn't come with mines! Laughing I agree, though, that getting an extra base set isn't a bad idea. If you really don't want all the extra figures and terrain, you could always try to sell off the bits you don't want on eBay. Smile

you could always try to contact the DoW customer service and explain what happened. They have always been excellent at replacing missing/broken pieces. However, since your board was not broken at purchase, and a board is a rather big component of the game, I can't predict what they'll do, but you can always try. Maybe they're willing to replace your board at a small price ....

Thanks for all the suggestions. I think I will try Customer Service first.

Good luck. I don't know that Customer Service replaces damaged parts unless it was their fault, but you can always try. Smile

I've printed out 14 pages each to make a couple battle maps copying tiles from the editor or blowing up scenario pics, so I imagine the cheapest thing to do would be to print out 7 pages or so to make a blank standard map.

Thanks Smile I invested heavily in this game when it first appeared and bought multiples of everything. I've been able to help a couple of people out with stuff that nowadays is unobtainable (air pack and 1st book). Obviously I'm not in it for the money and giving a little helsp to promote the good stuff that this game is supposed to be about.

All I have every asked of anyone (beyond shipping and handling) is to pay it forward somewhere down the road Wink

In the end... we all win Wink
