Can you tell me more about 1First Games?

While this is our first foray in the world world of board games, 1First Comics has been in the comic book business since 1983 and we’re no stranger to people coming from outside the hobby trying to make their mark (when we brought Lone Wolf and Cub into the US market, no one else was doing things like that). For this project, we sought out veteran board games designers during the process to bounce ideas off of and solicit feedback, sometimes not what we wanted to hear, but often necessary to deliver a better product. On top of that manufacturing was no small feat, so we partnered with top production managers, crowdfunding partners, 3D modelers, and animators who’ve all done work for larger publishers having collectively delivered dozens of successful Kickstarter campaigns raising millions of dollars on campaigns like the TMNT: Adventure System and The Dicetower’s annual funding drive.

All of this to say; you are right this is our first game, and as such, we’ve surrounded ourselves with talented people and are taking feedback from knowledgeable fans. We’re passionate about THE BOYS and board gaming and feel like we are delivering something that will speak to fans of both.

BackerKit FAQ

What is BackerKit?

BackerKit is a service that crowdfunded project creators use to keep track of hundreds to tens of thousands of backers—from shipping details, pledge levels, preferences and quantities, whether they have paid or had their card declined, special notes, and everything in between!

The BackerKit software and support team is independent from the campaign’s project team—BackerKit does not handle the actual reward shipping. For more information about the preparation or delivery status of your rewards, please check the project's updates page.

How does BackerKit work?

After the campaign ends, the project creator will send you an email with a unique link to your survey. You can check out a walkthrough of the process here.

I never received my invitation. How do I complete the survey?

The most common reasons for not receiving a survey email is that you may be checking an email inbox different from the email address you used to sign up with Kickstarter, Indiegogo or Tilt Pro account, or it may be caught in your spam filter.

Confirm that the email address you are searching matches the email address tied to your Kickstarter, Indiegogo, or Tilt Pro account. If that doesn’t work, then try checking your spam, junk or promotions folders. You can also search for "backerkit” in your inbox.

To resend the survey to yourself, visit the project page and input the email address associated with your Kickstarter, Indiegogo or Tilt Pro account.

How do I update my shipping address?

BackerKit allows you to update your shipping address until the shipping addresses are locked by the project creator. To update your address, go back to your BackerKit survey by inputting your email here.

When will my order be shipped, charged or locked?

That is handled directly by the project creator. BackerKit functions independently of the project itself, so we do not have control of their physical shipping timeline. If you want to check on the project’s status, we recommend reading over the project's updates page.

I completed the survey, but haven't received my rewards yet. When will they arrive?

As BackerKit does not actually handle any rewards or shipping, the best way to stay updated on the shipping timeline would be to check out the project's updates page.
