This is a great chance for new backers to get on board, so make sure to tell your friends. Let’s be sure to give a warm welcome to everyone who joins us, whether they’re hardcore fans of the TV series or tabletop gamers who appreciate the work of Adam and Brady Sadler.


Cryptozoic’s THE WALKING DEAD: NO SANCTUARY board game on Kickstarter!


Hi HEXers!

THE WALKING DEAD: NO SANCTUARY, the latest miniatures board game from Cryptozoic, launched on Kickstarter this past Tuesday and is close to funding. Check out the details below or, better yet, head over to the Kickstarter page to get the full rundown!

The game redefines the survival horror genre with gameplay that emulates the group dynamics from AMC’s The Walking Dead, as one player acts as the leader while the other players decide whether to support or defy their leader’s decisions. Working together is vital to winning as a group, but players have their own motivations that they cannot share with the others, making survival in a world of walkers a heart-racing challenge.

Head over to the campaign page to devour all the great content and join the survivors as they find new ways to deal with the never-ending stream of walkers and each other. This is the latest Kickstarter from Cryptozoic following three previous successful campaigns. Some of this game’s many unique features include:

  • The Walking Dead: No Sanctuary board game is designed by Adam and Brady Sadler, who have made BoardGameGeek’s top designers list multiple years in a row. The brothers’ previous works include several highly-acclaimed games, including: "Warhammer Quest: The Adventure Card", "Game Descent: Journeys in the Dark Second Edition", and "Star Wars: X-Wing"
  • Your favorite characters and scenarios from seasons 1-3 of the hit AMC show all appear. Expect to see miniatures based on the characters played by Andrew Lincoln (Rick Grimes), Steven Yeun (Glenn Rhee), Laurie Holden (Andrea Harrison), and of course, Norman Reedus (Daryl Dixon)!
  • The co-op game allows 1-4 players to enter the show's world and take on a multitude of different enemies—both dead and alive—all with their own distinctive motivations and ways of moving around the board. The various encounters of characters are taken directly from episodes of The Walking Dead.
  • Playable characters are completely unique from one another and have abilities that can only be shared if they are trusted by other survivors. The game has a truly original leadership component: Each player gets an opportunity—or in some cases is forced—to lead at least once each game, constantly altering the team's strategy. Defying the leader’s approach to a situation will add to his or her stress and cause other characters to lose trust, lowering everyone’s morale. If morale falls, all the survivors are in serious danger!
  • This is the miniatures game The Walking Dead fans have been waiting for, with over 30 highly detailed and realistic walker and survivor figures. Survivors come with their own character boards and decks, allowing them to perform abilities that reflect their personalities from the show. Gameplay utilizes over 200 printed cards—including Event Cards, Search Cards, and Location Cards—that create varying scenarios in conjunction with the 12 double-sided map tiles, which highlight memorable areas from the show. The game also comes with over 100 tokens and 10 custom dice.

Join the other Survivors today on Kickstarter!

GHOSTBUSTERS: THE BOARD GAME II … final days of the campaign!


Dear HEXers,

Cryptozoic’s campaign for Ghostbusters: The Board Game II has been an amazing ride so far! With the help of our backers, we’ve unlocked awesome stretch goals like Lady Liberty, the Grundel, and Extreme Ghostbuster Team. When we asked backers to help us spread the word on social media, they went above and beyond, in the process unlocking Grabber, a really cool bonus Ghost. When we unveiled the Get Real Pack and the Peoplebusters Pack, fans came out in droves, showing us how much love there still is for The Real Ghostbusters.

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

Minis not to scale

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!

As always, we thank you in advance for your support. Now, let’s strap on some proton packs and bust a few Ghosts together!

Players Must Accept Terms of Service and User Agreement by May 10th



If you have not accepted the Terms of Service and the User Agreement in the game client since November 9th, 2015 and therefore have not yet transferred your HEX account to its new destination under Gameforge administration, you must act now to do so! Please read on to learn more details.

Last year in November, we announced Gameforge as the new publisher for HEX in North America. You can find the original post here.

German privacy laws are highly restrictive, which has its positives in that they're theoretically protecting your information as a consumer. The downside here is that, by German law, you must accept a terms of service and user agreement with Gameforge in order for them to keep your data. If you've agreed to those two things at any time since November 9th, then you're good. If you haven't agreed to the terms of service and user agreement, then we need you to take action. As we are closing in on the 6 month anniversary of that announcement, the window for you to transfer your accounts to their new destination is also closing. 

Again, this action is necessary due to German privacy laws. These changes were (and are!) necessary to allow Gameforge to legally handle the user data in North America. Here are the steps you need to take by May 10th:

• Download and install the HEX: Shards of Fate client

• Login with your account info and click the necessary checkbox to accept the updated Terms of Services and Privacy Policy.

• Continue playing and enjoy HEX!

If you want to play HEX now – or in the future – please be aware of the date and take the steps outlined above to secure your account. 

To avoid any confusion: if you have yet to redeem your in-game code to receive your Kickstarter rewards, your code will still be valid for redemption past the May 10th date. The message we've sent here is specific to player accounts that have yet to accept the terms of service and user agreement since November 9th. If you are missing your code or need it re-sent, here are the instructions to have your Kickstarter redemption code sent to you:

Please create a support account (separate from your HEX game account) at and submit a ticket to have that redemption code resent. They will ask for a Transaction ID code, which you will find here You are looking for a transaction from June 2013 with Cryptozoic Entertainment. Click on the transaction and you will find the Transaction ID at the bottom of that page. Send that with your ticket along with the email address that was attached to your Kickstarter account when you pledged. When you receive your code, you will redeem it in-game at the HEX store page. You can redeem it on any account you'd like.

If you feel that your account was removed in error or if you have any other issues after May 10th please contact Customer Service and we will do everything we can to help you.

Thank you,

The HEX team.
