Frequently Ask Questions

1. Can Hero Time help me with shipping?

Shipping Board Games is a tricky part, but Yes. Defiantly. Hero Time believes in added service and will do anything in its power to help the customer.

2. Shall I ship by air or by sea?

Though shipping by air is much faster (7 days rather than 30) the company charges by weight and the cost can come out up to 5 times higher.

3. How much is the average weight of a game?

It largely depends on your game and the number of components you have. A game like Amun – Ra or Zaberias is nearly 2kilos, while smaller card games can be 0.6 Kilo. It is best you weigh your game, or ask Hero Time to do it for you.

4. How can I avoid my games being damaged?

One way to avoid a damage is by packing the games on pallets. However, you should take into consideration that pallets add an extra 30% for space and CBM. and cost an extra $25 per pallet.

5. Do I need a special license to import board games?

As a one time transaction you do not have to have an import license, a one-time bond is enough. All the forwarder needs is your name and address. It is important to keep the invoice and bill of lading Hero Time sends you.

This topic is probably one of the more abstract hidden and unknown topics in our industry; the vague government regulations and guidelines and the secrecy and inaccessibility of the testing labs are making it hard for everyone to understand what actually should be labeled and how.

This topic is for geeks who love to see and understand behind the scenes board games and card game production. Here we will go through the different cost structures of production down to the delicate details of gluing and labor costs. Once you read and understood these articles you will understand the cost and size limitations for your game and you will be able to reconfigure and redesign your game accordingly, all by yourself. Please note that in this topic we cover machines that are used by Hero Time, though most board and card game manufactures will use similar machines there are minor details that change. We will cover in this course topics such as General Costs, Printing Costs, Paper and cardboard cost, miniatures, and more.

Shipping and Fulfillment is another topic that small to large game publishers cannot wrap their heads around, nor can they fully master it. For a first-time creator and an individual to be able to execute this part all by themselves without issues is nearly an impossible task. Still, with the correct information, the creator can stand a chance. This course will discuss different shipping terms, shipping methods, how Fulfillment works, average prices, and the logic behind these prices. This topic is still under construction, but if you are interested in already starting to learn a bit, you can refer to our YouTube discussion here (a video on YouTube that will launch soon)

Hey guys, thank you for visiting this page. This is a personal message from Hersh: As a person who loves board games and the board game industry, it is my dream that board game creators will have everything they need all in one place, hence the University page you have come across. While I can handle and write all the information surrounding Manufacturing and Logistics, when it comes to Board Game Design, I need your help to write great and helpful content. If you have any board game design experience and think it is a valuable experience other creators should know about and learn from, please get in touch with us and let us know. If your article is informative and has concise and clear points, I would be more than happy to add it here in the university and put you as the author with a backlink to your own game/project, and your profile.
