Calling all BPRD Agents,
As you know, Hellboy: The Board Game was an absolutely monster success that was the biggest Kickstarter we've ever run, and one of the biggest hits of 2018. Thanks to your incredible support, we've created an absolutely monster box that's absolutely packed full of wonderful miniatures, incredible scenarios with loads of replay value and lots more.
Our production partner Panda has been working incredibly hard to bring that vision to life and we've been amazed by the incredible quality of the game they've produced. Ahead of Chinese New Year, they've been making about 1,000 copies each day, ready to ship to backers.
Unfortunately, despite their best efforts, they didn't finish production of all 12,0000 of the Kickstarter Editions in time for shipping before Chinese New Year. Roughly 4,000 have been completed - and you can see some in the picture below. And for the rest, all the components have been made, books and cards are all printed and the miniatures assembled - so all that needs to happen is for them to be packed into the boxes.
Rather than wait to ship all the games at once (which is what we would normally do), we've put these 4,000 on the boat immediately - meaning we can ship these to Europe before Brexit on March 29th (just in case the politicians screw it all up). Shipping to European backers will start March 15th.
The remaining games will finish production immediately after Chinese New Year and will be on a boat in late February. These will be delivered straight to the various shipping hubs (USA, Canada and Australia) and sent straight from there. Once we've got all the boat details, and dispatch time we'll share them in an update so you can track the progress over the ocean. We're anticipating that shipping for the remaining locations will start in late March/very early April - so not that far behind Europe - and completed in just 2 to 3 weeks.
We also have some good news for backers in Brazil! We will be working with a Brazilian board games distributor to ensure safe delivery of your games and will be emailing all Brazilian backers within the next few days with details.
Due to the slight change in shipping dates, if you need to change your address to ensure your big box of goodies arrives safely, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
