Have a question?
Got my 4 Board Map of The World. Its awesome and we are going to play this weekend. A couple of the corners were a little dinged from shipping in a simple cardboard box and I was charged $59 in customs. I have a question about some of the territories in the oceans, are some not associated with an area bonus? (Like Isle of Man on the British Isles map?)
Took a long time and the VAT cost an arm and a leg (total about 75% of the original cost) but well worth it! Thank you for delivering a beautiful product and I'm looking forward to throw my money at the four board set. (Please please please make the cards identical in size for the originals)
I received my boards, finally, on Tuesday the 4th of March. After a shock of being charged import fees that were graciously covered by Bungled Board Games I got my Europe, US and UK boards. They are very nicely designed, very high quality, the cards are nice too although a little small. Overall I am pretty pleased and wish Bungled all the best for the future.
Maps are proofed and we're just waiting on the cards. I'll post an update teaser pic!
Any news on the 4 Board Map of the World?
Niko, we don't have any backers' phone info, so we use our phone contact for international shipments. I will personal message you to get more information.
Hi! Still no sign of a board in Czech Republic. Could you tell me if you added (my) phone information to outgoing UPS parcels?
Hi, the people at UPS have sent my package back to you guys despite my request for them not to do that, is there any way that we can arrange to have that sent out? Thanks!
We sincerely apologize for the lack of communication, specifically with David, but we can assure everyone that all the boards have shipped. International orders do not allow tracking but they are all en route.
I have no received my boards. I ordered the UK, US and Europe. I myself live in the UK. They also have not replied to my messages.
Just got my boards today. They look incredible. Now you guys need to make a world map board.
i have not yet received my boards (Chicago IL) Master Sargent Level, should I be concerned yet?
i'm off to hunt for containers that will hold my pieces and fit into the boxes provided, it would have been nice if havoc included 6 cardboard boxes, even the standard playing deck card box would work nicely.
Received my shipment of classic boards yesterday. Bravo! You guys have done a wonderful job. The boards look great and I look forward to playing them. I'm glad this Kickstarter did what it was designed to do, and I wish you the best of luck with your company.
Is there any ETA on engraved boards / coasters?
Sadly, still no sign of classic boards on this side of the pond. :( It would be extremely nice to know if the international orders have actually shipped out or not and if, when..
how are the boards shipped in the US [NM]? i'm having issues with the post office and 95% of fed ex comes via the post office
I received my four classic boards (2xChicago, USA, and Washington, DC) today at work here in San Diego, California. The Chicago & USA boxes are 10.5 x 15.5 x 1.5, while the Washington, DC is a square box that is 10.5 x 10.5 x 2. The boxes are a dark red with the front of the box showing a black silhouette of the map inside. The name of the map in not on the box. Inside is a nice letter from them and the box of color mini-card properties that are 2.5 x 1.75 x 0.625. I was expecting them to be the size of the normal Risk cards, but since there are probably more properties than the original risk board, maybe this is a good thing.
Still no sign of classic boards in Europe.. Can't wait.. :)
My classic boards were delivered today in orlando, fl.
I received my wooden engraved board today and am absolutely delighted with the product. The quality of the boards is way beyond what I even imagined, and it looks absolutely stunning. Thank you very much guys. I'm very glad I backed the project.
It's "early next week". Have the classic board arrived in Durham? Have they been shipped out to backers?
Have the boards arrived in Durham yet?
Coaster arrived. I wanted to see how your laser engraving would come out. You have my attention now.
If this project was my first Kickstarter, I would be motivated to support more (it's not my first and definitely not my last either) while utilizing punctuation and grammar representative of my age. It's interesting to learn about the complexities that go along with manufacturing and delivering products for over 478 customers when the project previously had no infrastructure and is being built completely from scratch.
Good Luck and Happy Holidays!
@ BBG anything new?
If this project was my first kickstarter it would be my last, this delay is ridiculous for something as simple as board games.
Dear Bungled Board Games,
I love you. In a completely socially acceptable manner, of course. I love you like bee's love flowers- but I don't want to pollinate you. I love you like dogs love pizza- but I don't want to fart on your lap an hour later. I love you like the NSA loves mining your personal data- but I'm not stalking you... No, that is totally some other guy...
I guess what I came to say is that I hope you are still finding this Kickstarter as exciting to be working on as many of us backers are for the finished goods, that production is carrying along without too many hiccups (I don't envy managing the expectations of 478 backers who are surely giddy as schoolgirls), and that, above all, you're able to enjoy the holidays. Thanks for being so focused on quality and please feel free to ship me my board last- this board will surely be worth the wait.
Best wishes and Happy Thanksgiving. If you don't celebrate Thanksgiving though- Happy Thursday.
Will there be an update soon? I was hoping to give the coasters are a present. Thanks!
William / Dallas / macling:
We will be sending out an update tomorrow regarding the status of the basic boards.
Hey do you guys have any updates on the regular boards? It's been awhile since we've heard anything not laser related. Thanks.
you guys are the most unprofessional effed upped bunch of bunglers, can I just get my money back?
How are those classic boards coming along?
There should be a folder called 'jpg'. Tonight I will change the name to 'cards'. Let me know if the cards are not in that folder, they should be!
Much more to come in the weeks ahead!
The boards are fabulous...great work! When do we get to download the appropriate card sets?
I never received a confirmation email that my Board requests were accepted.
Were you sending out confirmations?
Hate to sound like a broken record but is there an update for when we should be receiving the boards?
Yes we did, and will be sending out an update very soon regarding this!
Any further news? Did you guys get your production issues sorted out?
Glad you like our boards! With any luck we will be able to deliver the wooden boards before December, but certainly no later than December.
We are still in the preliminary design phase of the Texas map, but we can tell you that it will be the current state of Texas, and there will be 6-7 regions with around 45 different territories. We can't say for sure any more information at this time because, well, it's still being designed (we don't know yet). You can always choose Texas but change your mind (if you let us know!) before we begin production. We will send out an update before we begin engraving so if anyone needs to change their mind last minute to a different map they will be able to.
I want to make my choice, but I am a bit wary of making the wrong choice. My husband and I decided this would make a great gift for a family friend, and we are thinking the engraved State of Texas may be the board to go with. But as that's a custom board, we have no idea what to expect from it. Is there any way to get a more specific idea of what it will look like? Is it regional? Does it go by counties? Is it based on Texas now, or Texas before it became a state? We love the idea of it, but without knowing more about the commissioned board, we are hesitant to choose it.
So glad it got funded! It's going to be the best Christmas present ever to my husband, that and I benefit too. ;)
I wish I were loaded, I would've loved to pay the 5k to have you all come down to Fort Polk (no one ever wants to visit us here, with good reason!) and have a big old game with the unit and families. Oh well, maybe by the time you guys update hungry, hungry, hippo we'll have the big bucks. ;)
Many congrats again, can't wait to get our board in December!
What happened at the end? Did we lose a big backer?
really people want all those silly city maps instead of Revolutionary War map? that is very disapointing.
I've posted this on all my social networks and have brought it up with friends. I really want to unlock the Seattle board, and will increase my pledge so I can get one once they're unlocked or even just nearly there. Let's make it happen!
If we reach $27,000 I will up my pledge for the Seattle Classic board as a gift. If you ever offer the Revolutionary War map down the road I would be interested!
Bruce is correct. Under the banner "Map Status" on the main page, you can see a list of all the maps we offer and in what style. Let me know if you have any other questions!
Thank you for your support,
@electricmotorcycles: Look on the main page. There is a list and the one with green stars are available in the classic style.
so what is the list of class maps we can get right now with the KS?
I can't wait for the Revolutionary War Map!!!
