All of our SUM8 games have been shipped! If you are reading this and have not received your game or a shipping notification - it means you have not completed the survey in Backerkit or you have not paid for your shipping. This is our final boarding call!

Our next Jurassic adventure...

We are excited to announce that we are beginning work on our next project: Bag-O-Bones : Puzzles Unearthed, a series of wooden jigsaw puzzles.

Follow us to get a sneak peek and stay updated on our launch, scheduled for the end of February.


Thank you to everyone, your ongoing support means the world to us.

Finally Arrived! Shipping will begin shortly.
6 months ago – Fri, Dec 09, 2022 at 06:16:27 AM

We are happy to let you know that our shipment arrived today! It has been a long journey, but we are thrilled that they finally made it.

We will begin packing and labelling your games for shipment starting tomorrow. Our goal is to get them all shipped by the end of next week. 

You will get a shipping notification and tracking number from UPS, so be on the lookout for that.

There are still a few of you that have not answered your surveys in Backerkit, or have had your credit cards declined for your shipping charges. We cannot ship your games until these two items are complete. If you are not sure if you have done these, here is the link to Backerkit:

You will then need to enter your email to log in to your account.

If you have any issues please message us through Kickstarter, or email us at [email protected].

Thanks for your patience!

On The Move Again!
6 months ago – Wed, Nov 30, 2022 at 10:54:43 PM

Just a quick update to let you know the games are on the train! We have been told mid next week is looking like an estimated ETA if there are no delays. So signs are pointing to us getting the games out before the Holidays, if no further delays occur. Our fingers are crossed and we’ll let you know once we know.

Out of Customs, Waiting on a Train
6 months ago – Thu, Nov 24, 2022 at 11:38:12 PM

Hello everyone, and a Happy Thanksgiving to those in the US.

SUM8 has made it out of the Customs hold! We are now waiting to get on a train for the final trek. We have been waiting since last Thursday to get on this train, and have been told there is a shortage of cars which has led to wait times all across North America. 

Once we have a final ETA we will update you. We are still hoping it will not take too much longer and we will be able to ship in December.

For those of you who also backed HEXX, we are planning to ship HEXX as soon as they are ready, if SUM8 has arrived or not. So you may end up getting two separate packages from us. 

Thank you for your patience and support.

Shipping Update and HEXX free shipping deadline!
7 months ago – Wed, Nov 02, 2022 at 07:17:16 PM

Greetings Everyone!

We wanted to give you an update on where the SUM8 Classic Edition shipping is at. The boat arrived in port on Friday October 21st. We are now patiently waiting for it to clear customs and be on its way. ARC Global, our Logistics partner is in constant contact with us, and do not believe it should be held much longer. As soon as it is released and moving again we will let you know!

HEXX free shipping deadline is tomorrow!

SUM of you have already pledged for our new game HEXX and taken advantage of the free shipping we are offering. This special Tier is only open until Noon tomorrow EDT. After that, we will be offering the remainder of the copies to other backers.

Outside of North America and want to back HEXX? Please contact us at [email protected] or send us a message in Kickstarter. We are not using Backerkit this time around and cannot collect VAT or other taxes through Kickstarter, so we have found a workaround.
