      Got my copy today in Malaysia

    2. Creator Wilfred Walker on February 24, 2014

      Just got my copy of Tools of Hero-Kind in Toronto. It's a great surprise!

      @ Christopher Tam

      I know that even with things being all mailed together, the post office doesn't necessary process it all together and customs can take its own time even on the same package being sent as part of batch. From what I remember, it can take 2-4 weeks from the US to Canada via the method that BWG is sending it. So even though you haven't gotten it yet, and others have within the same area, it's still within the allotted time slot.

    4. Creator Christopher Tam on February 20, 2014

      The expansion, I mean.

    5. Creator Christopher Tam on February 20, 2014

      Still waiting for my copy in Toronto, wonder when it is coming.

    6. Creator Brendan Hong on February 19, 2014

      Got my copy today in Canada. Looks great, cards and packaging and everything. Thanks BWG for the upgrade to physical copy of Tools.

    7. Creator Richard Faccia on February 18, 2014

      Got my copy of Tools yesterday. Toronto.

      Played one game and man, that really shakes things up. We got a bunch of easy items first and it seemed fine but then things spiraled out of control and I took like 5 wounds on one turn. I guess I need to plan better.

    8. Creator Owen "Great Mountain" Middleton on February 14, 2014

      Just got mine today(in Canada). Haven't opened it yet, as I am waiting for games night.

    9. Creator Rich Hilborn on February 12, 2014

      I haven't gotten it in Canada yet. :(

    10. Creator Christian Geiger on February 12, 2014

      Mine, too :o)

    11. Creator Jonas "Drakurius" Runkel on February 12, 2014

      Mine arrived today here in Germany (BaWu) via HZA Giessen

    12. Creator Christian Geiger on February 11, 2014

      Any Germans or Austrians got their copy?

    13. Creator Bryden Easton on February 10, 2014

      Still no ToHK here. :) Hoping it didn't get lost in the mail!

    14. Creator Tom Grinnell on February 10, 2014

      Just received ToHK here in the UK, thanks guys, the box looks really great :)

    15. Creator Brendan Hong on February 8, 2014

      @ Brian O'Neill

      It's not the prototype expansion, but actual retail version we'll be getting. It there's any delay, I'd imagine that the package is probably going through customs, which can take its own time to get through.

    16. Creator Preston Poland on February 8, 2014

      Still nothing here in Arizona. Hopefully it shows up monday.

    17. Creator Brian O'Neill on February 8, 2014

      Have people in Europe got the prototype expansion ? I am in Ireland and backed at the "THE EXTRA LIFE" level. Nothing has arrived here.

    18. Creator Brendan Hong on February 7, 2014

      @ Andy Dudley

      I'm not sure if it was specify if it was one per a backer or one per a pledge. You're best bet would be to contact BWG directly. Last time I had an issue, they were extremely prompt with a reply and took care of it right away.

    19. Creator Manuel Berger on February 6, 2014

      ToHK received in Israel!
      The game got much better with this expansion!!

    20. Creator michi on February 6, 2014

      Received in Spain!!

    21. Creator Andy The Sane on February 6, 2014

      Well, that was a nice surprise... TOHK arrived completely out of the blue.

      Just one question: I pledged for 2x Extra Life, I thought I would get 2xTOHK, but only one showed up.

      Was it one per pledge, or one copy per backer? Anyone else received less than they were expecting?

    22. Creator Brendan Hong on February 5, 2014

      @ Dave K

      Last I remember, there wasn't a shipping notice first time around (for the actual game) and more than likely, it should be the same.

    23. Creator Dave on February 5, 2014

      Did anyone receive a shipping notice for the expansion, or did it just show up?

    24. Creator Michael Black on February 5, 2014

      I got Tools today (NYC). The weather is probably slowing down shipments.

    25. Creator Christopher Young on February 5, 2014

      Tools of Hero-Kind arrived today. Alaska.

    26. Creator Ashraam on February 5, 2014

      Just got mine today too :)

    27. Creator David McGlynn on February 5, 2014

      Should all the US copies have arrived by now? I don't seem to have mine yet.

    28. Creator Nick Eglinton on February 5, 2014

      Just got my expansion, also in Wales. Totally forgot this was coming!

    29. Creator pat andrews on February 5, 2014

      Expansion arrived! Woo!

    30. Creator Richard Jones on February 5, 2014

      Just arrived in Wales, UK!

      Loving the box, time to sleeve up and play some Boss Monster!

    31. Creator The Redheaded Pharmacist on February 4, 2014

      Received my ToHK expansion in the mail today. Everything looks great. Thank you!

    32. Creator John Michael Davis on February 4, 2014

      Got my ToHK in Nebraska yesterday. Nice expansion, can't wait to play it this weekend. I do agree I've got to find a way to keep the box with everything else, it's too cool to lose.

    33. Creator Abe Watson on February 4, 2014

      ToHK just arrived in Manchester, UK. Have to agree though ... I want to keep the cards together but the box is just too nice to abandon.

    34. Creator Tieg Zaharia on February 3, 2014

      Got ToHK today, such a good surprise! Packaging == awesome

    35. Creator Kenny on February 3, 2014

      Mine just arrived in Maryland!

    36. Creator Saucy Jack on February 2, 2014

      What a happy surprise yesterday to get a mystery package! Tools of the Trade landed on the East Coast (Philly)!

      The Gameboy Cart Spoof box is too funny. I almost hate to take the cards out and put them in the base game. I'll have to keep the little box somewhere neat in the Gaming Den

    37. Creator Daniel Grota on February 1, 2014

      Just got a pleasant surprise in the mail today. The expansion looks awesome! :D

    38. Creator JetSpike on February 1, 2014

      Received my expansion, loving the box!

    39. Creator Mark Guidarelli on February 1, 2014

      Had a great suprise last night to find the Tools of a Hero Kind expansion in my mailbox!

    40. Creator Butner Brimberry on February 1, 2014

      Got my expansion today, had no idea these were going out - glad my address hadn't changed :)

    41. Creator Travis Merkle on January 31, 2014

      It's here! It's here! Tools of Hero-Kind has the cutest package ever.

    42. Creator Brotherwise Games on January 29, 2014

      John, I'm happy to say that all backers' expansions (including our international backers') are in the mail. US backers should be receiving their expansions this week. International backers should get them next week, or longer, depending on how quick the post is where they live.

      Thanks to everyone for making this happen! It's so nice to be able to follow through on our promises to you, the folks who got us off the ground.

      And to our upper unlimited lives backers who get free copies of all our future expansions, stay tuned to Brotherwise Games (our Facebook page is the best place to do this). We'll be Kickstarting Boss Monster 2 within the year, and we intend to keep expansions coming for the foreseeable future!


    43. Creator John Rhinehart III on January 29, 2014

      When will we as backers be receiving the expansion?

    44. Creator Brotherwise Games on January 21, 2014

      Hi folks,

      While there will be a few pre-release events before February 5th, that's the official release date for Tools of Hero-Kind, and when you can expect to find it in stores. Pre-orders through our website will ship earlier than that, of course.


    45. Creator Griffin Patterson on January 18, 2014

      So when can we expect ToHK? I know it was released recently

    46. Creator Brendan Hong on January 9, 2014

      I know it'll take some time before the expansion ships and arrives, but honestly excited to get the message and I can't wait to get it. Amazing jobs BWG!

    47. Creator Brooks on December 27, 2013

      I agree with anthony, you guys did very well and delivered exactly what you promised. Even companies who have made several things like CMON still cannot get shipping estimates even remotely right. I am glad I am a lifer for BWG

    48. Creator Brendan Hong on November 5, 2013

      @ Ralph

      I believe the details of the development and the test playing of the expansion is probably on the BWG forums. But regardless, it looks amazing.

    49. Creator Ralph on November 4, 2013

      I don't see where people are posting about...a detail on the art you showed for the new expansion in today's email.

      But damn! That came out of nowhere! I AM HYPED FOR IT!

    50. Creator Brotherwise Games on November 4, 2013

      We're still reading, Anthony! And thank you so much!
