Frequently Asked Questions
There are other ways to get your game!
We offer personal shipping straight to your house. The fee varies by tier. $3 for Thinker and Rubble backers, and $5 for Wood and Brick. Also, the fee is per address, not per game or per backer, so if multiple backers want to bundle their games into one shipment, the fee will only apply once.
We also offer limited pickups at select locations around the world at no extra charge - Amsterdam (Netherlands), Oxford (England), Saarbrücken (Germany), Cambridge (MA), Ann Arbor (MI), Portland (OR) and Oakland (CA). Please send an email to email@example.com with subject title "Black Box Local Pickup" to reserve a copy.Last updated:
We were unable to get the games done in time for Essen or BGG.con in 2011. If you had scheduled a pickup at Essen, we will ship to your personal address for free. If you had previously scheduled pickup at either Essen or BGG.con 2011, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with your personal shipping address.
Christopher Rao will be at the Portland 18xx convention June 21-24, with a few advanced copies of Black Box for those who reserve pickups.
Aside from that, we've no plans to be at other conventions anytime soon, but if things change we'll keep you posted!Last updated:
Yes, it is! It can get confusing since we have a presence on BoardGameGeek, Facebook, and Twitter. Feel free to contact us any way that is convenient for you, but all questions and answers to those questions relating to the Glory To Rome, Black Box Kickstarter project will be compiled here.Last updated:
Sadly, now that it is over, you can't get one through the campaign. But you can get one at your Friendly Local Game Store! A list of participating stores can be found at our website. Give them a call and see if they can hold a copy for you. If they don't have any more copies available or you don't see your game store on the list, give them a call anyway and ask them to make an order. If they know that their customers want a game, they are more likely to order iy.

At the lower pledge levels, shipping is free to any FLGS (Friendly Local Game Store), world-wide. "Personal" shipping - to a non-game-store address - costs an additional $5 (if you get a copy of Glory to Rome) or $3 (if you don't). These should all ship with the "main" shipment to your region, typically by sea from Shanghai.
At the CONCRETE pledge level and above, there is no more FLGS/personal distinction. Shipping is to any location, worldwide, period. Advance shipping is included in all of these levels except for STONE (in which it's $60 additional). The advance shipment will arrive to your region before the main shipment, by air. In the case of North America and Europe, the timing difference will be several weeks.Last updated:

It is a limited edition hand screen printed poster, signed by a guy who is set to become one of the defining games illustrators in the 21st century.
Alright, we may be biased but Heiko's stuff is incredibly good, and this Kickstarter campaign is the only place that this poster is going to be offered.
The poster is great! Buy it!Last updated:
