So I found a page from 2011 asking about these, then another in 2013. I even went to see what it was about myself a month ago after getting the DC Deck Building Game. Before the new redesign of the page there was a Big Game Hunter page to sign your email for further information when it becomes available. Now there is no such page. What is up with this?

I am guessing it was going to be a program they decided not to use. Maybe after so many game codes registered you got a cool exclusive promo or something.

it would be nice to hear them say "Ya we trashed the idea, the codes are useless and we wasted your time and our ink, sorry."

I completely agree. I just got the DC Deck builder and have a code as well - obviously now useless...

I picked up a copy of 3012 a few weeks back and cant even find a code anywhere. Maybe they stopped printing them

In my new copy of Gravwell as well. I assume they're going to activate this some day?

The code input is not yet live. When it is, your codes will still work.

Wow so I really have very little confidence you guys at cryptozoic are making headway with this. I think your just wasting ink money on these things. Its been like three years since the codes started being printed on these games. I have 4 of them now. Seriously are you guys at Cryptozoic EVER going to set something up? ......3 YEARS??????

Hi!
I bought DC Comics Deckbuilding Game and saw the 'code' on the sticker on the inner game lid.
There was this text:
Quote:
Register your Cryptozoic Game Hunter code online at www.cryptozoic.com and unlock your achievement for purchasing this game. Every code is unique and unlocks the badge for this specific Cryptozoic gaming product.


So, I understand that this code is only useful for obtaining a 'badge' for the same product. And this badge may only be useful in Cryptozoic forums (appearing under your avatar or so, like in BGG)?

Anyway, I did a little search and it seems that after some years collecting e-mails, the Cryptozoic Game Hunter still does not work...

Any update Matt? Thanks!

The exact nature of the BGHunter codes has not been announced.
Indeed, the program is behind schedule. I don't have a timetable.

I'm assuming the codes we've been collecting for some time now haven't expired?

Personally, Matt, I want to thank you for chiming in here. So rare that developers from any walks of service interface with the public in as personal a way.

Also, Cryptozoic might be one of my favorite gaming companies out there purly for the subject matter alone... Doom That Came to Atlantic City, ESW, Freaking ARCHER, Naruto Deck Building... Its all gold to me. Keep it up and I will forever support you and your bigger brother.

I wonder if they even work on this project. Seems like something they got into and now don't care about but someone got paid to come up with the idea so they have to make it look like there is a promotion happening.

Think about it, if Pepsi in the 80s was like "hey there are codes underneath bottle caps, in 30 years when we figure out why we are doing this, you can enter them to do something" people would go crazy. And I don't mean crazy like hyper active I mean crazy as in One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest.

I'll say it again, how it is possible to go this many YEARS without doing anything other than printing codes and distributing them. I can do that too. Here you go guys

fh54dfh4df65h4d5f4hdh4
5dfh4f5h4d5f4hd5f6h4d6
5h4df56h4df65h4d6fh4dp
etc

On a separate note, at least martian manhunter was in the BGG Store for two days, that was cool.

Is this still going to happen or has it been scrapped?

I did not see a hunter code on the Forever Evil box or the Crisis box.

Signs of the times. No hunter codes in Forever Evil, nor either of the Crisis expansions. If they're not in the more recent game boxes, chances are they scrapped it. I believe we won't expect a code in the upcoming JSA expansion pack later this month (March 2015) either. Of course, I'd love to be wrong on this.

Got this directly off a reply on their facebook page when asking about the codes... "Cryptozoic Entertainment Hey there! We actually cancelled the Big Game Hunter program. You will notice new games (like Forever Evil and Rivals) do not have any codes inside of them. We apologize for any inconvenience. January 26 at 7:30pm"
