      @ 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.

      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.

      @ 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.

      @ 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.

      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?

      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.

      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

      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!

      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.

      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
