Hall or Nothing at Stand E10, Airecon 2020 + Asia fulfilment commences!
18 days ago
– Wed, Mar 11, 2020 at 03:21:54 AM
Just a quick message to let you know that:
a). VFI have confirmed receipt of their delivery and Asia shipping will commence this week! :)
b). We managed to wrangle a stand at Airecon after all, so we'll be there in Harrogate this weekend showing off our fancy new copies of Shadows of Kilforth and Gloom of Kilforth (with limited stock available to buy) as well as 1565, St. Elmo's Pay, and maybe even Veilwraith too!
And here's Francesca and me having a good old chinwag with the lovely Airecon organiser Mark Cooke about the show and our games:
We are absolutely chuffed to bits to support our favourite convention again this year UK Games Expo, so who's gonna be there? Be sure to come say hello if you are attending the expo - I'll be delighted to meet you, fist bump, blather about the Witcher, and just generally geek out with you! The Hall or Nothing booth will be on Kilforth Street (naturally), Stand 1-1016.
Here's the factory's official statement about the VFI Asia fulfilment:
"Due to the escalation of the Covid-19 Corona Virus situation, our production facility in Shenzhen will remain closed for an additional 2-3 weeks, likely until early March. This precautionary measure is being taken to reduce the chance of an infection happening to our team which could have much longer term consequences. Stopping the spread of the virus is a global issue and the local government has put in place a number of policies aimed at preventing the further spread of the virus including halting public transportation from affected areas and also asking companies for their cooperation in facilitating health checks for their staff. Thank you for your patience and understanding during this difficult time. Panda Game Manufacturing"
They also added:
“Our factory is still closed until early March. We slowly have people coming back, but I know that our warehouse team which is responsible for packing the shipments is not back yet.”
And we'll keep you up to date of any developments on this. FYI, this does not affect the UK/US/RoW shipments which are proceeding as scheduled.
Veilwraith play-through videos!
To tide you over whilst your games are being shipped out to you, here's some more info about our next game, which takes place after the world of Kilforth has fallen into gloom! Here are the teaser, Setup video, and play-through video, all in one convenient package for you:
Cheers guys, I cannot wait for you to open Shadows and get stuck in to all that Kilforthy goodness! :D

Shadows of Kilforth Future Small Box Expansion: "Unfinished Tales"
Remember those stretch goals that we did not hit during the campaign? Veil Door, Militiaman, Esteemed Turban, etc. There were another twenty or so cards too that I'd designed but that we didn't get to squeeze into the game, including some new heroes and sagas. We've had the opportunity to finish the art work and complete these cards and bundle them into a small box expansion called Shadows of Kilforth: New Tales (or Unfinished Tales - still deciding).
The plan is to launch it later this year for what will probably be a week long Kickstarter with no stretch goals so keep your ears to the ground and we'll shout about it in the future - there's also a little more info in the Hall or Nothing January catch-up video at the end of this update.
UK + Rest of World only: Single Replacement Card for Adventures
If you ordered the Adventures expansion, AND you are from the UK/RoW (i.e. not Asia or US), this is just a heads-up that you will receive a single replacement "Duel Winner" Title card for a slight factory misprint. Simply swap the provided replacement card for the Duel Winner card in the Adventures expansion. If your shipping hub is US or Asia then this does not apply because Panda already caught the error before your games were shipped.
Let's play Gloom of Kilforth
Here's a play-through video of Gloom of Kilforth from T Man - Episode 1 "About friends and strangers":
Hall or Nothing 2020 Update
Finally, for those of you interested in what else we're up to this year here is my face talking stuff:
Until next time, be excellent to each other!
Shadows of Kilforth - January 2020, Printing Complete + Rolling Solo!
3 months ago
– Fri, Jan 10, 2020 at 02:31:22 AM
Happy 2020 everyone!!
I hope your year is going to be utterly brilliant - we're already off to a great start... :)
Printing Complete - On the Boats in a few days!!
Printing is finally complete - huzzah! The games need to ship out from China to the worldwide hubs now, and this usually takes about 4-6 weeks, at which point they will be checked, packed and posted out by our fulfilment teams. Below are the tracking details of the ships so you can all follow along with their journeys whilst we wait...
PLEASE NOTE: the vessel arrival date is NOT the same as the fulfilment commencement date,as outlined below...
UK (+ RoW) Shipment:
MOL TRIUMPH / 012W
ETA SOUTHAMPTON: FEB-6
Approx. one week to be unloaded and go through customs.
A few days for delivery to be arranged.
A couple of days once the stock has arrived to check the stock, etc.
Fulfilment will begin within one to three weeks of the arrival date, based on the hub's schedule.
HANOI BRIDGE / 034E
ETA JACKSONVILLE, FL: FEB-19
This will work the same way as the UK hub but takes a bit longer for the delivery due to trucking times in the US.
VFI will be handling Asia, and the games should arrive with them more quickly by land.
The VFI orders ordinarily take 1-4 weeks to complete fulfilment once the stock, data and approval are confirmed.
We are still awaiting timescale confirmation from them but the games should be delivered alongside everyone else's.
Allthe above means thegames will most likely be landing with backers in February/March!
Kilforth Rolling Solo!!
Shadows of Kilforth is a healthy number 12 in the Top Kickstarter campaigns of 2019 as voted for by the awesome Rolling Solo community - so huge thanks to those of you who voted! And if you haven't already joined the community Rolling Solo's Adam Smith is one of the coolest dudes in gaming so you should get involved...
Adam and I spent a lot of time hanging out at my first GenCon and we kinda hit it off from the outset...
Our next game adventure: Veilwraith!!
What happens when the heroes lose and the land of Kilforth falls into gloom??
Our next game delves into that question as you go beyond the Veil to discover what happens after the end of the world! You can subscribe to the game on BGG here:
Where possible I'll do my best to keep you informed of our upcoming games, but the best way to ensure that you don't miss out on any of our upcominggames is to pop your email address into our Subscriber List on our website home page here:
Have a brilliant 2020 everyone, let's absolutely smash it this year!
Shadows of Kilforth, December 2019: Top 200 Solo Games, MPC + Printing Pics!!
4 months ago
– Fri, Dec 13, 2019 at 12:58:36 AM
Hope you're all safe and snug and settling in for loads of top food and drink this Christmas. We pre-ordered our turkey from the local butcher today, which is just about the most organised we've ever been. Anywho...
Glooming up the Top 200 Solo Games!!
Yuss! Gloom of Kilforth is #47 in the 2019 People's Choice Top 200 Solo Games! Right behind one of my own favourites Kingdom Death: Monster, and way above some other monster titles too. That's the third year running that Gloom of Kilforth has been in the Top 50 Games and against incredibly stiff competition, so thanks so much to everyone who rated Gloom of Kilforth (which you can do on BGG if you haven't already). :)
As you know, printing is well underway, and the final checking step of this process is about to begin. The Mass Production Copy is on its way to me - and though we can stop the print run if absolutely necessary, this is the version of the game that you guys will be receiving too, so at this point it's about as final as it can be. If the MPC arrives before Christmas and I can approve everything before the holiday break we are on for completion of manufacturing in January, and we can start freight shipping. And to keep you going until then here are some glorious pics of the manufacturing process from Panda...
1565, St. Elmo's Pay off to the Printers too!
In an unprecedentedly fast move (for Hall or Nothing Productions) we've already submitted the files for 1565, St. Elmo's Pay now, so it's a great time to jump on if you'd like to grab yourself a copy of the game, which also includes the 3 Shadows of Kilforth promo cards:
