Warehouse 13: The Board Game is an officially licensed, semi-cooperative board game based on the hit Syfy show. The base game plays 3 to 5 players in approximately 130 minutes. It also includes a fully cooperative variant for 2 to 5 players. In Warehouse 13: The Board Game, players take on the roles of the iconic Warehouse Agents, one of whom is working as a Traitor for the game's Adversary, James MacPherson. Warehouse Agents must use Trait cards to investigate clues, then use those clues to retrieve artifacts. The Agents win if they retrieve three artifacts. However, MacPherson will grow stronger with every artifact lost. If MacPherson and the Traitor capture three artifacts, the Finale begins, in which the Agents have one last chance to thwart MacPherson's grand scheme.

What an amazing day yesterday was! Thanks so much to our backers who've stayed the course over the long plateau. And to all the new backers: (as Artie sweeps his arm out and upward from the balcony) "Welcome to Warehouse 13!"

With only 9% remaining, we are definitely within reach. How can you help? Continue to spread the word. Don't cancel your pledge--if times are tighter than when you initially made the pledge, consider reducing to the Knock Knock level so you can stay involved and keep the backer counter ticking up. 

If you are looking for a good post to share, this one is our most recent: 

If you are looking for a fun thread to read, this fits the bill:

Again, our sincerest thanks to everyone for all the support. Let's bring it home today, no astrolabe required.

The Big Push
6 months ago – Wed, Sep 27, 2017 at 04:36:21 AM

Greetings, fellow Warehouse Agents! As we enter the final couple of days of the campaign, we are pushing for a strong finish. We are at ~80% of the goal and need a little over 300 Backers to make Warehouse 13: The Board Game a reality.

One thing we can't afford is for Backers to think this isn't going to fund and then cancel their pledge. That path leads only to self-fulfilling prophecy, right at the critical moment when we need to increase the momentum we've picked up today. I watched an episode just last week while on the treadmill (see here), and there was this great conversation between Claudia and Jinks while they were digging around in Artie's mind trying to bring him back from the brink. It seems apropos to our current situation:

Claudia: Why bother if we just keep losing?
Jinks: Because it's not the win, it's the fight. Evil is relentless. It always has been. You take one evil out and another pops up to replace it.
Claudia: Worst. Pep. Talk. Ever.
Jinks: But if we stop fighting, if we give up, what does that say about us? …The fight. That's what matters.  

We've been asked if we're going to cancel the campaign, and no, we are not. If it does not fund, so be it. We will retool and return. But it's not over yet. I'm betting Artie may pull something out of his travel bag to save the day.  

Win or lose, you have our sincerest thanks for the outpouring of support shown thus far, and we know you're in the fight alongside us. And that's what matters.

Just in case anyone was concerned about how we intend to handle post-campaign pledges and backer surveys, we are using Backerkit.

Theme, Playthroughs, and Ratings.

Hey there fellow Agents! Just a quick update from the Warehouse... 

One of our backers has put together an awesome overview of the various agent abilities and how they thematically draw you in to the character you are playing. Here's a link to Dustin's abilities thread.

Dustin's thread inspired Conquest Gaming's Russ Rupe to start a thematic photo thread where we're planning to discuss some of the cards, photos, themes, and Warehouse trivia we've picked up from watching the show so much.

Player after player has told us that you don't even have to be a fan of the show to appreciate the game's theme. We've had dozens of people "just have" to seek out a W13 DVD set after test playing with us. One of them happened to be Will at Tantrum House (start at 26:30 to hear that part, 25:00 for the whole review).

Several hundred viewers have taken advantage of the gameplay videos we've posted. The 5-player playthrough has Episodes 1 and 2 online, with more to come soon. Here's that playlist.

With 11 days to go, we need your help now more than ever. We have almost 50 ratings at BGG with an 8.4 average and currently none below 6 and all but 5 in the 8-10 range. If you've played the game, watched the videos, or read the rules and feel like you can give us a fair and honest rating, please do. And keep spreading the word every way you can!

Snag it. Tag it. Bag it. Back it.
