The first batch of orders has been shipped. People belonging to this group should have received an email with tracking. The second batch of the order should be shipping late this week. We will make sure to update the group once the complete order ships.

Thanks for your patience and expect an update from us on 10/26 or sooner if something comes up.
Thanks again for joining the drop with the community. We submitted the group’s order with the vendor for the Lupin the 3rd Board Game Bundle shortly after the drop ended and they have begun preparing it for shipment.

Once the group’s order is ready at the vendor’s location, they will ship the packages individually to you as soon as possible.

Once we receive confirmation regarding the shipping schedule from the vendor, we will provide you guys with updated information on the status of your package.

Expect an update from us on 10/21 or sooner.
I'm on the fence on whether I like this game. It's very flavorful, and definitely captures the seat of your pants theme of the anime, But...

It plays like D&D lite; there's rules for grid-based movement, combat, and even a 'character generation' phase where you buy supplies. You definitely need a full 5 people, a lot of the rules and abilities are balanced to rely on all four 'villains' being present. Thankfully there's two maps even without cracking the expansion pack, but even the 'simple' map was a little one-sided towards the detective.

IIRC you remove the "Forgive me, Lupin" cards (and the Fujiko & Zenigata team-up cards if you're using the expansion) from Fujiko's deck when you're playing a 2-player match.

My group compares it to "Reverse Scotland Yard/Letters to Whitechapel." But yes, it's best played with a full compliment of 5 players.

Quick update for the group, we spoke to the vendor and they are scheduled to get their allocation of units in slightly before the end of the week. Once the units arrive the vendor will get individual orders packed up and ready for shipment. As soon as the vendor lets us know that units are picked up we will upload tracking for the group.

I'm hoping for some good news later today! ^_^
I am from Australia, is it possible to order this drop?
Is this drop US only? I don't seem to get a UK shipping price...

All the board games I've seen on here just ship to USA. Come on guys!
Love lupin, but is this game actually good or does it simply wear the dress of a beloved anime?

I think the BoardGameBrawl Review explains the concept of the game very well. I personally have not yet played the game, but it a lot of game mechanics that I like such as there being a traitor, role cards with unique powers , dice-rolling combat, and equipment cards. The game does a good job thematically so fans of Lupin will appreciate how well the anime is represented through the gameplay.
The only slight downside to the game from what I've read is that the rules can be confusing due to translation issues (although they have been revised over the years), so I would recommend looking at the PDFs linked in the product page.

The game is very in-line with the thematic elements of Lupin III. Planning the heist, equipping hang gliders, grappling hooks, & decoys while Fujiko (most likely) schemes to turn on everyone while you're about to make a suicide run to your getaway car is very evocative of the madcap hijinks of the beloved series.
Some people may be wondering why the game is in Italian. It's because the game is made by an Italian publisher called Ghenos Games. Not to worry though, the rules are in English and the bulk of the game doesn't require you to read Italian to play.

The English rules are written rather poorly. This game saw a lot of time on the table of my gaming group, but not until substantial translation/research on behalf of one of the players — who is a native Italian speaker herself.

I'd highly suggest going on BGG's forums for rules clarification.
