We had 3 requirements from the very beginning

1. It had to hold your board together. 

2. It had to be able to make any layout you could think of.

3. It all had to fit in the original box.

We are all familiar with how difficult it is to keep the board from falling apart. The frames warp. The tiles don’t stay next to each other, and we end up spending countless hours putting it back together.

The Hexels solve these problems, and more!  Enjoy an interruption free game with your friends and family without the hassle of a board that falls apart.

Faster setup and cleanup

With the Hexels, setting up the board now takes less than half the time.  Heck, it takes less than one SIXTH the time!

"Featured on the homepage of Mashable! Some of the original prototype Hexels even found their way onto a couple episodes of Parks and Rec."

Estimated Shipping Costs

The Hexels currently plans to ship all pledges from our fulfillment partner in San Francisco. While we’ve fulfilled a Kickstarter before, offering a product which scales in size creates challenges regarding shipping.

The most important factor in calculating shipping cost is weight, and this will  shift as more Hexels are added to your reward level.

To help you determine how much shipping could be when we send the product to you, we've put together some estimates. These are conservative estimates currently available via the cheapest method available to us, the United States Postal Service (USPS). We will continue to search for less expensive shipping methods throughout and after the campaign, but please recognize that we cannot control or predict actual shipping costs to every destination.

United States: $4.00 - $10.00 Canada: $7.00 - $25.00 Rest of World: $12.00 - $25.00 

Value Added Tax (VAT)

If shipping is a challenge, VAT is an absolute nightmare. VAT rates vary significantly between countries, and there’s no easy way for us to collect or pay it from the U.S.

Because there’s no economical way for us to know when and how VAT will be charged in every case, let alone fairly charge you to cover any VAT fees the product may or may not incur, you will be responsible for those fees when the product gets to you – most likely, having to pay them at the post office, if at all.

Planning to Move between Now and June?

No problem. BackerKit also lets you update your shipping address all the way up to just before we ship.

Risks and challenges

We are fully aware of potential delays that may happen with products that are produced in China - the common ones being production, shipping, and customs delays.

We have estimated the delivery for July 2017 but please understand this is only an estimate. Due to the global logistics involved in shipping, some regions may receive their pledges sooner than others.
