advice on regluing felt 1 Year, 2 Months ago  
I recently bought two used sets whose felt has come unglued. Otherwise in great shape.

Are there better or worse glues for regluing? I would guess thicker less absorbing are better to avoid soaking through the felt.

If the felt is completely off, you might use a spray adhesive. Put the felt fuzzy-side-down on some newspaper to apply. Allows you to put an even thin coat on the felt.

I had the EXACT same problem. None of my felt was completely gone, but it was peeled back. It all stems back to the foam inserts in the boxes being too snug and tearing off the felt.

So, my 12 year old and I got down with some Modge Podge Matte and a brush, and some D-Cell batteries.

Paint it on the affected area, move the felt over it to bond, and then lay the repaired piece on some wax paper. Then, for the small pieces, lay a D-Cell battery on top for weight.

Fixed all mine up to the factory spec in no time.

I hadn't had the felt come off of my DF until recently when I went to use my RoTA sets, and noticed that almost all of them had come off.

Not sure what it was about that set as opposed to all my other ones. But it's very strange. I'll look into trying out the Mod Podge you suggested.

Had this problem about a year ago:

Hobby Lobby

The link is to something called Stick and Peel Felt. It comes in a number of colors and is $1.17 per sheet. Each sheet is 9" by 12" If you use a hobby knife they easily cut to Dwarven Forge base size
