Shipping Update - February 6th

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 support@manticgames.com. 

Ahead of your games arriving, check out this new Kickstarter unboxing video with Andy Burdis from BlackJack Legacy and the wonderful James M. Hewitt.

Calling all BPRD Agents,

Everything is on target for the March shipping date, so that means we need to start the rather complicated (and boring) process of ensuring our shipping database is accurate. As such, we need to make sure we have your correct shipping address on file.

IF YOUR SHIPPING ADDRESS HAS CHANGED SINCE THE PLEDGE MANAGER CLOSED, PLEASE UPDATE YOUR DETAILS VIA THE PLEDGE MANAGER. FINAL ADDRESSES MUST BE CONFIRMED BY MONDAY, JANUARY 21st. 

You can check/change your address via the pledge manager. If you can't find the link to your  pledge manager, simply head here and you will be emailed the link. If you're having difficulty, please contact support@manticgames.com. Please note we are unable to ship to a P.O. box due to the size of the package, so please provide an alternative shipping address.

BACKERS IN ARGENTINA/BRAZIL

We are currently in the process of contacting all backers in Argentina/Brazil via email regarding a very serious problem with shipping to those countries. Please check your email inbox for an email from support@manticgames.com

Production update - January 7th

Calling all BPRD Agents,

Woo-hoo! It's officially the year of Hellboy and we can start counting down the weeks until delivery. Today we've got a short update from Panda about production (short story: it's all going well). However, the really exciting news is that a mass production copy of the Kickstarter Edition has now arrived in the Mantic office. We'll be filming an unboxing video with James soon and will post the video later this week.

So, over to you Panda...

"Hello and Happy New Year to everyone,

Great news from our side! We have just sent the first mass produced copies to Mantic and production is nearly finished on all components. We will now carefully examine these first mass produced copies together with Mantic to ensure everything is perfect and will start assembling the games shortly thereafter.

Not much else to say or update from our side, everything is going according to plan and everyone on the team is excited as the shipping date is getting closer and closer. To get you excited as well below a few pictures of the close to final miniatures. Those were the last test shots before we started the production. Beside the color, which will be a darker grey in the finished game, those are the final pieces. We hope you like them as much as we do.

We wish everyone a great start in the new year and a lot of fun unpacking and playing Hellboy: The Board Game soon! 

Best regards,

Kathrin, Chris, Emma, Adam and the Panda Game Manufacturing Team" 

HO! HO! HO! HOLIDAY HELLBOY IS ON HIS WAY
