Neptun, by Queen Games and designer Dirk Henn, is a game for 3 to 5 players ages 8 and up and plays in 45 min.

The game is played over three game rounds consisting of three phases.

You take the role of a Roman merchant sailing the Mediterranean.

Navigate the sea and coast to deliver on contracts you have acquired (in phase 1:  Acquire Contracts). But there is a catch (so to speak). You get to determine the order of your contracts, but they must be filled in that order. So as you are acquiring and placing contracts, you must take into account where you are traveling. 

Phase 1 Acquire Contracts

When you fulfill a contract (in phase 2: Fulfill Contracts), you receive either favor at the temple or gold, which can be used to buy favor but also may be used to extend your ship's range. Thus, gold can help you bridge that key leg of the journey so that you can deliver that contract in a timely fashion and be well positioned for the next part of your journey. 

Phase 2 Fulfill Contracts

By laying out your contracts efficiently and navigating the sea and coastline effectively, you will earn the most favor (in phase 3: Scoring) from the temples and win the game.

Phase 3 Scoring

SHIPPING  

!!!Please note!!! Backers should add the respective shipping charges to their pledges. If shipping is not included this may cause a delay in shipping. Thank you for your help with this. :-) 

United States, Germany, NL, and BE

Shipping is Free.

Canada, European Union, Norway and Switzerland

$15 for shipping and handling charges.

Brazil, Russia and Ukraine  

Due to the high customs charges and delivery challenges we no longer ship to Brazil, Russia or Ukraine We apologize for this inconvenience.

ALL OTHER COUNTRIES

Please add $35 for shipping and handling charges.

All shipping charges are per shipment.

Combined shipment of multiple backed projects of Queen Games

It is possible for backers to save the shipping cost of $15 or $35 respectively for their countries if they wish to combine this shipment with other projects to be fulfilled. When campaigns are combined, the later date of fulfillment will apply.

1. Shipping cost:

Backers can save shipping cost for this project if combined with other unfulfilled projects of Queen Games. The shipping cost is charged only once not each campaign (note that this is a policy change), since it is per shipment, not per game.

2. Delivery:

When combined the latest expected delivery date will be valid. This may cause delays for the fulfillment of earlier backed projects. If you do not want any delays, this option of combined free shipment will not apply.

Eg:Neptun can be combined for free shipping with Escape Big Box which is next in line for shipping in the EU and US in October. Whereas if combined with Alhambra it will be shipped in December.

3. Survey:

We will ask in the survey for the combined shippment.

Disclaimer

A small quantity of Neptun will be available for purchase at Spiel in Essen, Germany October 16, 2014 - October 19, 2014 Before the estimated release date of November.

If we make Queenies from this Kickstarter available at Spiel in Essen they will be for purchase only. By participating in this campaign you get them for FREE!

Games will be released once they are available in their particular region. The games will first be available in the EU. North America will be 6-8 weeks after that and for backers everywhere else it will be 8-10 weeks from the EU launch. All additional costs that may occur because of custom duty or local charges are the backers responsibility.

Risks and challenges

Neptun is the newest release from the designer Dirk Henn and we are proud to present it here as a Kickstarter Special!

Our toughest challenge with our previous projects has involved the coordination of production when a game is made with components from different manufacturers. This creates some logistics and shipping challenges that we want to improve upon. Going forward our plan is to minimize this situation so that we can better manage our production timeline and delivery. In the case of Neptun, we have the component specifications and resources in place, so we are very excited about the expected turn around time for this project. Neptun is planed to be launched at the Essen show and is expected to be released in retail in November in the EU and in December in the US and Canada. We will make our utmost effort to ship the game to backers in October before the Essen show. It may be that some backers receive their games during or after the Essen show but in any case before it is released in retail. We offer the option of Essen/ BGG-Con pick up for backers who wish to do so.

Greed, Tortuga and Fresco Big Box are shipped out to backers.

Kingdom Builder Big Box is on its way to the states and Escape Big Box are also proceeding according to schedule.

Due to shipping time (ocean transit, customs, rail/truck, and final delivery), our release policy for Kickstarter Analog Games releases is that they will be released in the EU when they are available since we produce in Holland. North America will be 6-8 weeks after that and for backers everywhere else it will be 8-10 weeks from the EU launch.
