About



 ABOUT THE GAME 

From Weta Workshop and Trishula Entertainment comes District 9: The Boardgame, a competitive 2-4 player game based on the classic sci-fi film. Return to District 9 and relive the film’s final three days through a whole new perspective. Lead your Faction through the alien slum in a search for the tech that will give you the edge. Salvage the most technology, take control of the district, and claim your victory!

To buy an Add-On, simply increase your pledge by that amount. You’ll be able to choose how your money gets spent in our Pledge Manager, when the campaign ends.

We sent pre-production games to some of the most discerning game reviewers on YouTube - here's what they have to say:  

Shipping for District 9: The Boardgame will be charged once the Kickstarter campaign has ended, based on the actual cost of shipping your game. 

Our Pledge Manager will step you through the process. This opens a few weeks after the end of the Kickstarter.

In the meantime, we have listed shipping estimates for each tier in the table below. Please note that these costs are not final. Shipping will be charged based on the actual cost of shipping your game, applicable stretch goals, and any add-ons you choose, to your chosen destination. The "Base Game" column has been added to show what just the base game (without stretch goals) would cost to ship as some backers have requested this.

We have put the United Kingdom separate from the European Union as we are conscious the UK's customs status is currently under review. If at the time of shipping, the UK is still within the EU customs zone, shipments to the UK will follow the rules for the EU.

We regret to advise that we cannot ship to these territories: Russia, Central African Republic, Comoros, Cuba, Equatorial Guinea, Falklands, Guinea Bissau, Iran, Johnston Island, Kiribati, North Korea, Mayotte Island, Myanmar, Nauru, Niue, Saint Pierre Et Miquelon, Sao Tome & Principe, Sierra Leone, Solomon Islands, Somalia, St Helena, Sudan, Syria, Tajikistan, Tokelau Islands, Republic of Turkmenistan, Tuvalu, Wake Islands.

Pledges confirmed after our Pledge Manager closes will be shipped from our New Zealand hub at backer cost, later in the year. We recommend you keep an eye on your Kickstarter updates for information about the pledge manager due date.

Risks and challenges

We’ve put a lot of careful planning into this, our second Kickstarter. We’re ready to kick off the production of District 9 the moment our campaign has been funded, but it’s important to note that there are no guarantees in this process. There is always the potential for unexpected delays or issues that affect production, manufacture, or shipping.

We’ve been working hard to minimise any potential issues. Our Consumer Products division is managing the production of the D9 Kickstarter. They’ve been successfully creating and shipping all sorts of incredible products for 20 years. Our production and distribution channels are well established and firing on all cylinders. We’re committed to keeping you updated and in the loop, every step on our journey back to the District.

Refund Policy
No-questions-asked refunds will be issued up to 14 days after the close of the Kickstarter. After this period, store credit will be offered in lieu of a refund.

After the Pledge Manager has closed, offers of refunds or store credit will be at the discretion of Weta Workshop, acting in accordance with applicable consumer law.

In the event that we are not able to deliver your game due to an error or mistake on our part, we will refund you in full. If we are unable to deliver your game due to change of address or backer error, we will redeliver at backer cost or issue store credit.

Refunds will be issued in USD, at the exchange rate applicable at the time of the refund.

Terms & Conditions
By supporting this Kickstarter, you acknowledge that all components are subject to change and that your final game may vary from what you see on the Kickstarter page.
