Welcome Back, Heroscape

Yeah, not so much. Hasbro/AH killed it again . . . this time before it ever hit the shelves.

Let's Buy Some New Heroscape

I completely missed the campaign. Never got an email from Hasbro and I’m a previous Pulse buyer. Didn’t see it on any of the news sites I frequent that regularly cover crowdfunding.

Hasbro- if you’re reading this, relaunch with decent marketing.

If you do the math we did more than $1.088 Million monetarily, surely that much backing warrents another look! PLEASE!!

I agree with the 8000 backers being too high, when Heroquest was offered, they were only asking for half as much in support monetarily. Yes they did $3.8 Million in support but they also had two tiers allowing for more people to get in on the lesser amount option. I thought (and still do) that they should have offered at least two options and set a monetary goal instead of a number of purchasers goal for Heroscape. They had a hugely successful plan and outcome with Heroquest, why they didn't follow that I cannot fathom. I too think this was more of a failure on Hasbro's side but for Heroscape's sake, I wish we could have another go at it with more realistic expectations and better planning.

Price IMO was fine. I think the bigger issue was the unattainable goal of hitting 2mil with basically little to no marketing that I could see, expecting heroscapers members to foot the bill.

I am sure someone here had access to how many active users we have over period of 2 months to get an idea of how many people would see it, then perhaps double it with people reaching out to old heroscaper members etc...

To barely hit the half way number for backers, that tells me this was more of a Hasbro problem, them us Heroscape fans of a problem.

Not sure what set you are talking about because pathfinders of the arena core set comes with 18 unpainted figures and runs about $50. So at approximately the same price for figures and cards, Heroscape should have run $200 for the set without terrain. And as far as inflation, what my family was spending at the grocery store each week has almost doubled over the last two-three years, and we don't buy anything we haven't always bought, also the average price of a fast food combo meal has gone from just under $7 to nearly $10 per person so yes everything has increased.

Another thing to keep in mind is that Hasbro was going to pay the shipping as well and I am sure that wasn't going to be cheap for that huge box of materials. When I purchased Heroquest the shipping was $32. So we are up to $232 without any plastic and painted terrain. So to consider this was not worth the amount they were asking for is just nonsense. If you couldn't afford it, I get it. It was a high price. But I am sure Hasbro just wanted to kill off their already dead game 12 years after its demise by paying designers and creating content So it could dig up the coffin and drive another nail in it... That whole thought is preposterous!!
