Board Game Creative Kits in Finland - what happend, and what will we do about that.
Probably you remember something what happend about a month ago – one of the backers noted, that Board Game Creative Kits were on a sale in one shop in Finland. We were very concerned about that, so we started to asking questions, to find out what happend – how is it possible, that anybody has those? As far as we knew back then – they should had been safe in „our” warehouse. This is a moment to explain one more thing to you - we don’t own a warehouse, our company is still not big enaugh. Currently, our partner, Ateneum, is keeping our stocks in thair’s warehouse, but before that, we were using services of Raben – logistics company.
As far as you know, we were selling Core Sets of Board Game Creative Kits back at Essen 2017. After that, they were send directly from Essen to Raben. We didn’t need to check on those, since we had some neccesery copies back in our office.
Just after we’ve heard about this situation with BGCK being sold in Finland, first thing we’ve done, was to contact them, to find out what happend. Simultaneously, we ordered our stock to be sent from Raben to friend of ours, who had garage and enaugh free place to keep it.
Finally, one week later, we could see the package by our own eyes – and on our pallet there were stocked just some empty cartons.
Let’s get back to the shop from Finland. We’ve contacted them, and one of most important informations for us was how did they got those, WHO sold those to them. We were in contact with them, they were trying to help, but gave us no real answers. This was the same moment, when we had to face our financial problems – when we got back to this topic, our contact from the shop was on the vacations and Raben has sent us confirmation, that it was the pallet they’ve got one year ago.
So, summing this whole story up – right now, we don’t have Board Game Creative Kits – they were, in fact, stolen from us.
This week, we’re going to Police, to report what we know, and to start our case. Hopefully, we will be able to get Board Game Creative Kits back, but we we would like to ask you for your patience one more time. We know, that you might be already frustrated with all those delays, and we are terribly sorry for those. We don’t know how to act in such situations, and what could we do, to fulfill your demands. We don’t want to end the campaign – we still belive that we will bring Board Game Creative Kits to you. We will do our best, and we will keep you updated.
