About this project
Five-Minute Delivery is a unique game that takes... five minutes to play. (Seems obvious, doesn’t it?) The game is played in real time, meaning everybody plays at the same time with no turns. A variety of MP3’s give you different directions and play experiences, and each track lasts…five minutes! Of course, if you don't want to use the MP3, you can play it unplugged with the included goblin die!
We know life is packed with countless activities and plans, which is why we developed this quick game for 2-4 players (and as many as 10 players with upcoming expansions!) Spending time with family and loved ones has never been easier!
In this fast-paced and highly addictive game, Five Minute Delivery offers a remarkably fun experience for friends and family alike. Players assume the role of one of four aspiring goblin couriers whose objectives are to out-deliver the competition.
Play Time: Plain and simple... Five minutes. This game has been purposefully designed for multiple rounds even when you don’t have a ton of time. For really fast players, this can be done in as fast as five minutes, where slower players may take as long as five minutes to finish.
Players: Most people will find 2-4 players preferable. If you have more people in your family that want to play, you can play with team rules and double the number right out of the box! (See instructions for more information)
Age Level: The recommended age is 8 and older, but anyone who can read and/or match the pictures of homes on the Address Cards to the ones on the Game Board will enjoy the game just as much.
Date Friendliness Score: We developed this "Secret Sauce" Sliding Score (1-10) to help people figure out how easy it would be to invite their significant other to play one of our games. In a nutshell, the Date Friendliness Score is based on three things: 1) How easy it is to teach, 2) How long it takes to play, and 3) How competitive new players can be.

THE STORY BEHIND THE GAME
Far back in the hills of Nurbloom is the tiny goblin town of Goobliopolis. For as far back as anyone in town remembers, there were the bundle deliverers.
This elite group of goblins were the ones trusted to...deliver...bundles. Each day the little goblets would gather along the main roads to watch the deliverers go by, hoping one day to join their ranks. For you, today may be that day.
Right now, business is booming and Nigel Moobloo (head of shipping in Goobliopolis) is holding a contest to find another deliverer. The winner will be given the opportunity to work for Nigel for a week (for free of course), and will be automatically qualified to participate in the contest again next week.
You were among those goblets who watched the deliverers each day, hoping to join the ranks of this elite group. Today, you have a chance to become something more than a lowly doctor or teacher...you could actually become a deliverer!

I. ADDITIONAL GAME COPIES
Extra copies of the game are $36.00 (USD) each, but make sure you check out the BARON FAMILY NIGHT pledge level first (it includes two copies of the game). If you've already got the BARON FAMILY NIGHT and would like to add even more, we're happy to oblige!
II. EXTRA PLAYER PACKS
If you want to add some more players or change the colors around for your basic game, we've got additional Player color options! We're still coming up with names for our four new goblins, but their colors will be Orange, Green, Black and White. Extra Player Packs will come with one Goblin Meeple, one Warehouse Tile, one Goblin Character Card, and 18 Package Blocks.
III. PLASTIC GOBLIN MINIATURES
For those who like an added level of detail to your goblins, we've got plastic miniatures depicting the goblin deliverers. We'll have the four basic deliverers (Urgo, Frabio, Dora and Eugene) in their respective colors, as well as the as-yet-unnamed four additional goblins available in the Player Packs (see above).
Plastic Goblin Miniatures are $8.00 (USD) each or $28.00 (USD) for a set of four (your choice). Extra Goblin Miniatures can be added by increasing your pledge the appropriate amount.

Additonal Mom's Recipe Cards. For anybody who needs more cards for gifts, for backup, or just to get all different casserole recipes from the moms of all four partners, here you go!
Mom's Casserole Recipe Cards are $1.00 each and we'll make sure to give you different recipes from different team members' moms.
- Press the 'Manage Your Pledge' Button located on the right hand side of the Kickstarter Project Page. If you have not pledged yet, it will say "Back this Project'.
- Increase your pledge in the "Pledge Amount' box by the total of the add-ons you want to add.
- After the end of the Kickstarter campaign we'll send a short survey that will ask you questions so you can explain how you would like the add-on money assigned.
AND THE SHIPPING?
Remember that shipping is free to the U.S., but costs a little more to ship elsewhere. Remember that the game DOES require an MP3, and we currently only have MP3's in English. Keeping that in mind, the breakdown costs for shipping are as follows:
For all EU pledges we'll be shipping from a partner within the EU so backers will not have to incur additional customs charges.
Risks and challenges
The estimated delivery date is March 2016. Also, due to the logistics of international shipping, backers in different regions of the world may receive their rewards sooner than others.
We've done our best to minimize this as much as possible, and we are always happy to refund pledges if for some totally unforeseen reason the game can't be delivered at all. Since the game is over 90% complete, we don't believe this to be likely.
We can refund you within 60 days of the campaign’s end, fees included. After that, we have a policy of no questions asked, though that’s minus Kickstarter and payment processing fees (which we can’t get back from them after 60 days). However, if we’ve begun packaging your pledge for shipment (usually 2 to 3 weeks before the actual shipping date), no refunds are possible. If a component cannot be delivered AT ALL, we'll refund the pledge completely, including fees.
All refunds after the 60 days close of the campaign are processed via Paypal only. Refunds within 60 days are reversed via Stripe to your credit card.
This project is being funded in USD and any refunds processed will be in USD for the exact amount received in USD, excluding any applicable fees depending on the time of the refund being processed.
