Board games and puzzles tend to show their age with time. Many times, people may wish to return them simply because, once received, they decide they are not "as new", may even smell of smoke or may have parts that are worn or operate slowly perhaps from prior use.

Some companies | people list the diameter of a plate or saucer with the INTERNAL FLAT MEASUREMENT, others with the EDGE-TO-EDGE measurements of the plate or saucer. We typically measure from edge to edge and will then indicate if the piece has a coupe shape. This can lead some to believe the diameter of the stated plate or saucer is different than that which they are trying to match. Usually, this perceived disparity in the stated dimension is the result of this edge-to-edge versus internal flat measurement of the piece. If in doubt, DO! feel free to drop us a conversation and we will be pleased to verify the actual dimensions of the item for you against that which you are trying to match.
