Dear Ghostbusters fans,

Thanks to you, the campaign for Ghostbusters: The Board Game II has been an amazing ride so far! Together, we’ve unlocked awesome stretch goals like Lady Liberty, the Grundel, and Extreme Ghostbuster Team. When we asked you to help us spread the word on social media, you all went above and beyond, in the process unlocking Grabber, a really cool bonus Ghost for backers. When we unveiled the Get Real Pack and the Peoplebusters Pack, you guys came out in droves, showing us that you love The Real Ghostbusters as much as we do. 

Without all the fans backing the first Ghostbusters: The Board Game campaign, the second game wouldn’t even exist. And it’s only with your support this time that we’ve been able to make a game that’s even better, with exciting new gameplay elements and miniatures.

As we approach the final few days, we’d like to ask you to help us make one last push together. We have more stretch goals that we’d love to unlock, but we can’t do it alone. So, please pledge to one of the tiers and tell your friends about the game. The higher we go, the more stuff you get for your pledge!

Also, don’t forget our Psychokinetic Surge social media campaign, a really cool way for you to inform others about the game and unlock the pretty nifty Psychokinetic Surge Pack.

Announcing our new fulfillment partner . . . Shipwire!

We’re proud to announce that Shipwire will be our fulfillment partner for Ghostbusters: The Board Game II. Shipwire is an Ingram Micro Company with over $50 billion in annual revenue that partners with over 20,000 companies and utilizes 132 distribution centers worldwide. They have a proven track record that makes us confident that you’ll get your games, stretch goals, and add-ons as fast as humanly possible.

Their global network of warehouses are conveniently located in the United States, Canada, Europe, and Asia. Because of this global footprint, the first copy of the game and the last copy will all be delivered in the same 30-day window, no matter the size of the package for your order.*

*Some countries in South America and Africa may fall outside this window, but they will still receive a timely delivery.

Everything will be delivered to you in consistent and highly secure packaging, ensuring your game arrives in the same condition it was first shipped. In the very rare case that something does arrive to you with a problem, getting answers and replacements will be straightforward and easy. There will be a single customer service source for all backers without any mixed messaging or confusion.

We have saved the best for last: Everyone will receive a tracking number. When your game is ready for delivery you will receive at least two emails. The first will have your tracking number and a notification that your order is being prepared. The second email will arrive shortly thereafter and will let you know that your package has left the closest Shipwire warehouse and is headed directly to you.

All of this boils down to one thing: You, our loyal backers, will get your games before Ghostbusters: The Board Game II is sold at retail!

As always, we thank you for being Ghostbusters fans and for supporting us throughout the campaign. Now, let’s strap on our proton packs and bust some more Ghosts together!

      @Cryptozoic - I have just two words for you..... THANK YOU.

      Your overall efforts through this campaign, even through the rough patches, have shown you are serious about remediating all of the issues you have experienced from your initial Ghostbusters KS campaign. Taking the time to provide as much as possible in detail, and being upfront about a lot of the potential snags has helped make me feel confident that you really will put out a great effort in fulfilling your campaign promises, and makes me willing to endorse your company again in the future.

      I wish you all the best in your final hours of the campaign and the steps needed forward to make this game a reality. Thanks again and best of luck.

      - Ken G

      I'm from Canada. If I take the ADd-On Ghosthbosther I. When I will receive it ?

      hopefully that still means relatively cheaper shipping to California... getting sad paying 50% more than most US backers in other campaigns that ship from Georgia. (the State, not the country) so I was excited to see CZE is in Lake Forest, CA

      From what I remember, SN filled the most common orders first, then the next most common, etc. The most common by far was the MH bundle with no addons, that went first. The least common orders were mostly comprised of people with lots of random addons (the people who spent a lot of money). This is what Lunari was talking about.

      I backed at $380 something, and got my order in the last week of fulfillment.

    5. EDITOR-VJAS on

      @Lunari.
      Last time was more SN batching orders with similar builds. Yes it appears that they filled some of the more easier to ship options first, but that didn't always mean least expensive. And as far as I and most if not all Canadian backers, they basically held all of ours til they could import the lot of them, regardless of cost or build.

    6. Lunari on

      Last time, I recall an issue being that backers with higher funding amount were getting shipped last, which lead to high level backers getting the game over a month after the lowest tier backers. Is there a different system in place this time to ensure the highest funding backers take priority, or are at least given an equal time frame?

      I assumed you wouldn't commit to someone with a sketchy track record, but assumptions haven't been the best for backers this campaign :-P I hoped you wouldn't mind us looking into them as well.

      With several new backers joining as we speak, let's hope that the last 48 are a big boost!

      @Jeffrey We are being very cautious and picky to ensure our backers get the best experience possible and wouldn't commit to anyone unless they were thoroughly vetted with a proven track record. Especially with GB2, our expectations are very high.

      Good to hear it's a different division. There's several backers in the comments sharing good experiences with them as well, that's a big relief.

      The one I linked had 3 1/2 out of 5 stars, but most of those were before they expanded a couple years ago. The recent ones were almost entirely one star nightmares of total lack of communication, missing or delayed product, and severely overcharging their customers for Shipwire's mixups.

      If it's a different division though, great!

      @Jeffery we will be working with Shipwire of Ingram Micro. Basically they have different areas dedicated to the type of product, the amount of shipments, location, number of packout combinations and by duration. We are working with larger quantities and variations so it'll be a different division than from the link. Although, the average ranking of positives/negatives of all reviews look above average on your link :)

      It's not this Shipwire, right? Different company?
