Mantic Games is pleased to be working with Dark Horse Comics once again. After publishing the critically acclaimed Hellboy: The Board Game, this time we're bringing the world famous Umbrella Academy series to the tabletop!

This is an easy-to-learn, fast-paced board game that sees you becoming a member of The Umbrella Academy. Save the world from devastating hazards and thwart the plots of villains, like Hazel and Cha Cha, The White Violin and more.

Loads of replay value, easy setup, solo rules, co-operative gameplay, and amazing miniatures mean this is the definitive Umbrella Academy tabletop experience.

Shipping is NOT included in your pledge and will be calculated/charged in the pledge manager. We recommend waiting until the pledge manager to add the exact amount required. There is a risk that shipping may increase if any new tariffs or taxes are imposed for certain countries, plus the shipping situation around the globe is currently very unpredictable. Regions listed as shipping friendly will have the VAT and customs paid for as part of the pledge. We currently estimate that the shipping costs for the pledges will be approximately:

Please note, we are unable to ship physical products to these countries: Argentina, Brazil, Russia, Ukraine, Syria, South Africa, Kazakhstan and Afghanistan. We are also unable to ship to PO boxes. These pledges will be refunded.

Risks and challenges

There are a number of risks with any crowd funding project, especially getting accurate timings for such complex products with so many components. With this project, the product is approved by Dark Horse and ready to go into tooling with our manufacturing partner, Panda (the same manufacturer we used for Hellboy: The Board Game).

We predict that we will begin shipping in August 2023 - however, the exact timing is impossible to predict and there is always the potential for delay with products produced in China, particularly with the current global shipping situation. We will of course keep our backers up to date as best we can once the project closes. COVID is still causing some issues with manufacturing and shipping, which could also impact the final shipping date.

To date, we’ve successfully fulfilled 18 Kickstarter campaigns: Kings of War, DreadBall, LOKA, Mars Attacks: The Miniatures Game, Deadzone, DreadBall Xtreme, Dungeon Saga, Kings of War 2nd Edition, Deadzone: Infestation, The Walking Dead: All Out War, DreadBall Second Edition, Star Saga: The Eiras Contract, Warpath, TerrainCrate, Kings of War: Vanguard, Hellboy: The Board Game, TerrainCrate 2 and League of Infamy. We currently have two outstanding Kickstarter: Hellboy: The Roleplaying Game (digital rewards have been delivered, physical rewards are shipping now) and Hellboy: The Board Game Expansions and Dice Game (due to be delivered this summer).

By backing this campaign you acknowledge that the components, artwork and game elements may change in the final edition. This means some elements may differ from those shown here following the Gamefound campaign.

If you do not complete the pledge manager within the time specified when the pledge manager is sent, you agree that your contribution to the campaign was a donation and your pledge is fulfilled. Of course, we will use our discretion on a case by case basis. Completing the pledge manager is the ONLY way for us to confirm your shipping address and pledge details, as well as making sure we hit the production timelines.

By pledging on this campaign you agree that you will pay for any shipping and any import or other duties required in your country. If you refuse to pay customs or duties and do not accept the package, it will be destroyed and you will not be eligible for a refund. You also accept that you are liable for providing us with the correct shipping details upon request and we are not responsible for items lost in transit if sending to an incorrectly provided address. We also cannot ship to PO boxes and you must provide an alternative shipping in this circumstance.

Although we are aiming to deliver The Umbrella Academy: The Board Game to backers before the game is available at retail, production and shipping delays can lead to delivery at the same time or following the retail release. If you do not agree to these terms, then please purchase the game once it's available at your friendly local gaming store in 2023.

Refunds and cancellation

Upon request refunds may be given within 14 days of the campaign ending, including fees. Following that time, refunds may be given minus 10% fees. In order to request a refund you must contact support@manticgames.com. However, if we have begun packaging your pledge for shipment, we are unable to issue a refund.
