Holy Cow! A Damage Report update??


Backers!  I know... its been forever since we last said hello.  We wanted to give an update... actually for several months, and today it finally is happening!

First up - I just wanted to say thanks for all of the positive feedback on the game.  A lot of people genuinely love Damage Report, and are excited for future content.  Thank you again for helping support the game and making it a reality.

Damage Report - On Fire!

We have been working on the finishing touches of the Damage Report -On Fire! expansion, and are ready to see it printed. Many of you (310, so almost half) are owed this expansion (if you backed at the Gamer's Pack or above). We absolutely plan on getting this into your hands - and we know many of you are really looking forward to it! Our original plan for this was a small mini-expansion that was going to include 4 tool, instructions, and maybe even just in a bag. But we think we can do better than that. 

Unfortunately, our funding is not keeping pace with our ambitions. We made Damage Report a fantastic game! We ended up with a game that weighed over 5 pounds of quality components, and cardboard - and even a digital timer.  Retailing at $65.00, there is not a better value on a game store shelf.  This focus on quality and content swiftly ate through our funding... and the ending heavy-weight boxes impacted our shipping costs. Subsequently - we are short on funding to complete the printing of the expansion... as it has come from just a small add on to a full blown expansion of 3 scenarios, 2 new tool types, and additional items including robots! 

To get this properly printed - we think the best way to do this would be to Kickstart the expansion. Once we fund, we can press the 'print' button, and hopefully have the game in hands in record time! We wanted to let you know what our intentions were, and where we are in the development process. Here is a (blurry) pic of the completed prototype. Some of the art is not final... and depending on the success of the Kickstarter, we may even do miniatures possibly for the robots. It is an over fund goal.

 We will also post an instruction manual soon for you folks to take a look at. The manual will be open to feedback as we will continue to work on it until the week we go to print. When we post it feel free to take a look and email us your feedback. We would appreciate it greatly. 

I know we are really late in getting this done for many of you. This is squarely on us... and attempting to do more than what our team was capable of handling. We are continuing to work on getting better at this. 

I want to thank you all for your patience, and for the kind and exciting feedback we have received about the enjoyment of Damage Report. We have a lot planned for it, and we are glad that it will have a fan base to support those plans.  More details about the Kickstarter will be discussed as we get closer to this.  Right now we are hoping this will be next month.

Backer Crew 

These two characters are due to everyone still from the Kickstarter. We will be delivering this to you as well. These will print with the On Fire Expansion.

Damage Report Update!


Backers -

We wanted to give you a brief update on the status of where we are.


Everyone's game has been shipped.   If you have not received your game - let us know.  

Damage Report - On Fire!

This mini-expansion is due to about half of you.  It will add 3 more scenarios, and two new tools.  If you backed at the Gamer Pack, or Deluxe level - you will be receiving this!  We have completed all art, and have been finalizing the instruction manual - just making sure everything is correct. The good news?  It is shipping by air, so we will not have a long wait once it is printed.  We will do a brief update once this is in printed.  Timing?  We do not know what to expect yet from the printer - we will provide this once we know.

Backer Crew

We have our two backer crew Kickstarter exclusive members ready for print.  We will be printing them, and shipping them at the same time as the On Fire expansion.  Everyone will be receiving this that took part in the Kickstarter.

Timing App!

Android Damage Report Timer  (A special thanks to Mark P. from Boardgamegeek (schmarky))

We are getting close to complete on the IOS app timer.  This should be ready in the next week or so.


These have shipped to all backers who ordered one.  We hope you get a lot of enjoyment out of these.  Hint: a couple of the scenarios are larger as published than the mat... rotate a couple of corridors will aid in making them a bit smaller so they will fit.  When this mat was first conceived, our widest width for printing was 24".  It is now 36". 


BFR's team will be at GenCon this year - booth 2719.  Come by and see us!

In Conclusion...

We hope everyone is enjoying Damage Report.  If you could take a second, and rate your game play experience on Board Game Geek it would be appreciated!  DAMAGE REPORT on BGG  Let your local stores know as well if you love this game - have them play with you!  :)   

Thank you all for your support.  We will be in touch soon.

Damage Report: The Shipping Process

1 like

Backers -

Some of you have received the game, many of you are still waiting.  We thought we would share with you what we are doing, and when you can expect your game.

If you have received your game - be sure to rate us on Board Game Geek, and if you like the game, let your friends and local retailer know.  These games just arrived to warehouse this week - so they will begin to enter distribution in the next week or so.

Shipping Process

First we need to unpack the boxes:

Next we bubble wrap the games.  Each game gets 6 linear feet of wrap to insure it will not get damaged in transit.  It is wrapped on all sides:

Then we ship them out.  Our present rate is about 75 games a day, with a few days we have not been able to ship due to scheduling issues. 

We have shipped:

All EU games (games only, we owe you the promo scenario, and everything else).

All Games for: WA, OR, CA, ID, UT, NV, AZ, AK, HI, NM, CO, MT, WY, and everything East of the Mississippi.  This leaves essentially TX, LA, OK, MO, AR, KS, IA, NE, SD, ND, MN, Canada, Australia, and the remaining international boxes.  We expect to be done next week.  A bit longer than anticipated, but we are making good progress. Everyone will be receiving the Backer Crew later this summer. $100 backers+ will be receiving the first expansion: Damage Report On Fire at that time as well.

Any one who ordered GripMats will be getting their GripMat in a couple of weeks.

Thank you all for your support, and we are so happy to see the amount of excitement this game is generating. We hope you have a blast playing Damage Report!

Ship is arriving! & International Tabletop Day!



Ship is almost to port in US

The ship with Damage Report is arriving to port next week.  I received a confirmation that everything appears to be on track for a mid-April arrival to our door for fulfillment! Our hope continues to be to have the game in your hands by the end of the month.

International Tabletop Day 

In case you missed it - most of your friendly local game stores are running events today in celebration of International Tabletop Day. This is the 2nd year for the Geek&Sundry / Will Wheaton inspired game day. Check out this link to visit the tabletop site and see who is holding events in your area: 

Break From Reality Games will be at the Uptown Espresso & Gameporium (3845 Delridge Way in Seattle, WA) all day today with our very soon to be released game: Damage Report. Event starts at 10AM - midnight! Come in, play games, and earn a free drink, a fresh baked pretzel, or a 20% discount on any game. We also have some cool promos to give away! 

Uptown Espresso & Gameporium 

We are also demoing our current Kickstarter Project: Uptown Espresso! It is a real time card game for 2-4 players that plays in under 20 minutes. Players are baristas making drinks and ringing out customers, competing to see who can make $50 first. Check out our Kickstarter page here: UPTOWN ESPRESSO The art is done for this game, and we just need to raise funds to print it. We are also looking to raise a bit of extra funds to create and place some art in the Gameporium. 

Check out our Facebook page to learn more about the event at the Gameporium today - if you are in Seattle, we would love to see you! 

Cheers, Eric Salyers
