17,765 backers pledged $2,278,255 to help bring this project to life.


Hi HEXers. It seems fitting that I'm typing this from inside the Planet Hollywood Hotel and Casino, the site of Cryptozoic's 2013 World of Warcraft Trading Card Game North American Continental Championship. Yeah, that's a mouthful. With $237,000 in PayPal donations-- growing every day from our Slacker Backer pledges-- we're over 2.5 million dollars for HEX! 

That means we're going to HEX Con! Just a few weeks ago, this was just a dream, so we don't have any specifics yet aside from this: all backers, from Squire to Producer, will receive all digital items from the convention whether or not they attend as thanks for believing in HEX and making this campaign such a success. This also means that you King backers and above will be getting that early Friday sneak peek!

International Tee-Shirts

For you HEX fans outside of the United States, we have international shirt sales up! Head to our International Store and pick out your favorite design: Underworld, Ardent, or HEX logo. Remember, the order window closes June 30th and we're shipping in August, so get yours today.

Convention Season

We've been busy this week at E3, showcasing HEX to media and industry people. Cory dropped by the Gamespot E3 stage to discuss the game and our mission. As you may have heard, the Gamespot video showed both the Shroomkin city and the Shin'hare dojo panoramas. If you missed out, you can see that video at the bottom of today's update.

Treasure Chests

As you probably heard over the week, we'll be introducing treasure chests into booster packs and those will contain super sweet items and vary in rarity. They're a huge value add  for you, the players. We can't speak about them specifically yet, but as soon as we can, we'll make that announcement.

Fan Websites

What an engaging group we have! Many HEX backers have started their own fan websites and our community has compiled a list of them on our forums.

I also want to help you feature your best content, so please tweet me (@HEXTCG) your best articles and I'll retweet the links as I can. We're working on more tools for you content creators and I'm looking to announce support before alpha.

Vanity Cards, Dungeon Development, Sleeves, Gen Con Dinner, and More

For you Dragon Lord backers and above, you have some super special rewards coming your way. We'll be in contact sometime in the week to start the process of collecting art references, descriptions, and more for your vanity cards, dungeons, sleeves, and the like as well as provide you information about the Gen Con dinner.


Mike K knows you PVE fans have been hungry for more information. He gives a brief overview of a few of the dungeons he's been working on this week: The Ambush, Wild Heist, and Wooly Bully. Orc Ninjas await!

That's all for this week. I'll have your Vennen race art update next week as well as more info as we progress through HEX development. In case you missed the Kickstarter campaign, remember that you can still support HEX as a Slacker Backer.

Have a great weekend and if you haven't already, please Like us on Facebook, Follow us on Twitter, Subscribe on YouTube, Follow us on Twitch, and register on the forums. Thanks!

      So, I head to the CZE international store and it tells me that orders over $99 are shipped for free. I convince hubby to pick up a couple of T-Shirts and order 5 for a total of $100. Then the site still tries to charge me $57something postage? Ummmm.... What am I doing wrong or does the free postage statement not belong in the international store? If it's a mere error in calculation, please let me know when it's fixed. If it's a lie... guess I won't be getting any t-shirts. *sigh*

    2. Creator brandon bratkowski on June 15, 2013

      i's so glad we got 2.5 mill i got a twitch tv account and yahoo set up for when hex goes live

    3. Creator Ivan on June 15, 2013

      @ Martin maybe it's the Hex creator... and everyone in the street knows that Hex Gas is not subject to the mere atmospheric physics and Aeronomy sheesh!

    4. Creator Ivan on June 15, 2013

      @ Brendon yea got me a little wet for a second too, its referring to the Con being open to king and up pledgers on the Friday. Can't remember the details but it will be in previous update

    5. Creator Brendon Telliard on June 15, 2013

      so what is the king+ sneak peak?

    6. Creator Martin Grider on June 14, 2013

      So... the beginning of the video, with the rotating planet... and the GIANT volcano... is that supposed to be an earth-sized planet? Even if not, if it has any kind of atmosphere at all, the smoke would not be floating off into space (away from the planet), but rather rolling down the edges of the volcano. Might be a good idea to have a cursory amount of realism. ;)

    7. Creator Stok3d on June 14, 2013

      Vegas Baby... Vegas!

    8. Creator Greek Winter Media on June 14, 2013

      Shipping is expensive. Anyone that's ever had to ship a few things overseas should know that. This is a perfectly reasonable price. If you're upset, take it up with your mail-carrier or government customs officials for making things so inefficient and adding charges to international postage.

    9. Creator Luke Carper on June 14, 2013

      Soooo ready for Alpha. Sooooo ready.

    10. Creator Brian Wisotsky on June 14, 2013

      We want a full card list for set 1! :)

    11. Creator jimmywolf on June 14, 2013

      just want say thank you to all who showed support, i did what i could but it was but a drop in the sea, an only with everyone do we get these nice extra's

    12. Creator M5C on June 14, 2013

      Vegas in the winter for HEX-con? Maybe stop by Tahoe on the way back!

    13. Creator Matthew Ferland on June 14, 2013

      Yay! I was worried we wouldn't make it.

    14. Creator SamCube on June 14, 2013

      @Mike yes, probably the HEX logo one if I can afford it! That one is classy!

    15. Creator ripperjim on June 14, 2013

      When is HEXCON?

    16. Creator Crisanto Factolerin on June 14, 2013

      I wish backers that could not attend the Hex con can get something nice as well like a shirt maybe or even cool stickers that we can put to our laptops :D Make it transparent stickers if you do. hehe

    17. Creator ripperjim on June 14, 2013

      Are the T-shirts available for those of us in the US too or just international?

    18. Creator Vien on June 14, 2013

      yay for treasure chest XD I love loot. Also thanks Cryptozoic for giving us the digital items from HEX CON wish I could attend.

    19. Creator Mike Ruurds on June 14, 2013

      @SamCube: I want all 3 so bad! Take my money CZE! Are you going to pick any up if they confirm shipping to Spain?

    20. Creator SamCube on June 14, 2013

      @Mike so sad to hear that dude! I know you were really pursuing those!

    21. Creator Mike Ruurds on June 14, 2013

      @SamCube: I might just commission some unofficial designs :) The CZE store checkout process keeps telling me that my billing address doesn't match my card, so no tshirts for me.

    22. Creator Lily Chen on June 14, 2013

      I second @ Franbunny Alice Viera . Female cut would be indeed nice ( Even though it's rare to see female cut t's in kickstarters )

    23. Creator Schobbo on June 14, 2013

      I can't wait for this game! Looks so great and sounds good too!

    24. Creator keroko on June 14, 2013

      good news!

    25. Creator SamCube on June 14, 2013

      Thanks @Mike !
      I found this:
      I think with a little work I can do an unofficial one :P

    26. Creator franhexkingteir on June 14, 2013

      Would have been nice if there were female tshirts.

    27. Creator Alex Gannaway on June 14, 2013

      Viva Las Vegas, BAYBEE!

    28. Creator Moises Pera Tadey on June 14, 2013

      @thomas +1

    29. Creator Zac Phoenix on June 14, 2013

      I appreciate that shipping from the US to overseas has gotten hella expensive in recent years... but this still kinda sucks.

    30. Creator Mike Ruurds on June 14, 2013

      @SamCube: $17.25 to the Netherlands too. And no option for Spain. I think Spreadshirt is about $4 per shirt...

    31. Creator signalnoise on June 14, 2013

      Please do us a favor and include a way for Hex backers to somehow get all the physical rewards they would have gotten for going to Hexcon! We don't all have the money to fly to vegas or the time to take off of work unfortunately :(

    32. Creator Mike Ruurds on June 14, 2013

      @SamCube $20 for a shirt + $17.25 shipping for one shirt. Crazy.

    33. Creator nickon on June 14, 2013

      Awesome! Been looking forward to another update! :)

    34. Creator Merawen on June 14, 2013

      Yeah, Hexcon *cheer*
      Hope there will be a high quality livestream with full coverage.

    35. Creator Wil Wong on June 14, 2013


    36. Creator SamCube on June 14, 2013

      No option of shipping to spain!? A mistake?
      @Mike how many for just 1?

    37. Creator Christian Breitenstein on June 14, 2013

      EVEN more goodies! :D

    38. Creator Mike Ruurds on June 14, 2013

      $32 postage for 3 tshirts + we'll be stung for VAT and customs. I am disappoint.

    39. Creator Anthony Andora on June 14, 2013

      Can't wait for the game. Now I can't wait for HexCON either!

    40. Creator Qorsair on June 14, 2013

      See you at HexCON! :-D

    41. Creator jeremy b on June 14, 2013

      Sweet. All I can say!!!

    42. Creator Richard McDermott on June 14, 2013

      Can't wait
