Quoted from sparechange1974:
When I was doing some cleaning, I noticed the wood area under the swinging door looked chipped up on the edge, when I place my finger back there I can lift it like its a layer of plastic and I hoping this is the case and not clear coat. Does the game come come with clear plastic protection over that area or is it clear coat?
It's clearcoat. Get that sealed ASAP and then throw a Mantis protector over it!
Edit: Lloyd is right...it's a Mantis protector.
