About

 Brief Overview

A game for 2-4 players.

Players act simultaneously to fill their own individual playing boards with randomly selected lettered game tiles.

The aim is to try and create as many words as possible (in a crossword style) to score more points than your opponent/s.

Other game tiles encourage direct interaction between everyone involved adding to the intensity and enjoyment of the game:

ANY - A letter is chosen and assigned to these tiles at the end of a game.

BLOCK - These block a space on an opponents board for the remainder of a game.

MOVE - These allow players to transfer 1 or 2 tiles to new positions on their board to assist them in creating words.

STEAL - These allow a player to steal any lettered tile from an opponents board.

In addition, the TIMER can be started by any player forcing the others to utilise their game tile within just 10 seconds... or lose it!

... thereby ensuring that the action is never allowed to slow down.

Players therefore must strive to create words on their game board whilst dealing with their opponents efforts to hinder their progress.

The fun part is that you can do the same to them!

Win a game by scoring the most points for the words created on your board and receive a trophy tile:

Win 3 trophy tiles to be declared the TURBO WORDS Champion!

 A fast interactive word game that will appeal to all ages!

CREATE A LEVEL PLAYING FIELD:

Older players could be prohibited from using certain games tiles (e.g. they are not allowed to use a steal tile against a younger player).

Timers with quicker countdowns and double points game tiles will also be provided at a later date [see stretch rewards below]. The former will force older players to act quicker and the latter will allow younger players to increase their final scores by creating words through a double points tile.

SERIOUS WORD PLAYERS:

Create a more challenging and cerebral game by leaving out the non lettered tiles. This would take away the "devious" aspect and make it more of a straight forward head to head word challenge.

TURBO WORDS can also be played by younger children to aid their spelling development. Quite uniquely for a word game it encourages players to  think about word construction and where letters need to be placed spatially in advance of fully creating/seeing the entire word. 

Although we have several board game ideas we decided to make TURBO WORDS our inaugural release. 

We feel that word games have universal appeal... who doesn't love the challenge of a word game? 

As such, we believe that it is the most likely to attract kickstarter backers and be successful. 

We are a new business and so it is essential that we get off to the best start possible.... so that we can create further games in the future!

Crowd funding is a great way to get our game out there in the public domain and with your help we hope to create lots of fun games over the coming years!

We have put together some fun merchandise... backers have the option of a TURBO WORDS image on their chosen item/s or our fun Monster logo.

Our main reward is our board game which we are offering at a significantly reduced price. This will also be a limited first edition and we guarantee to supply these to our backers before we make TURBO WORDS available to retailers.

He doesn't have a name yet!

We will be running a competition on our website to find him the most fun name.

The Winner will win a large plush cuddly version of the Monster and also have their name listed in all future instructions leaflets advising that they chose his name!

Visit our website joluetgames.com or follow us on Facebook and/or Twitter [@JoluetGames] to keep up to date with this competition, TURBO WORDS developments & future game releases! 


£15,000

If we reach this stretch goal then we will happily provide an EXPANSION PACK to all those backers that paid for a 1st edition board game. 

This will include:

1) Extra player boards [to allow up to a 6 player game]

2) Additional game tiles

3) Multiple timers of variable duration 

4) New exclusive "double points" tiles

We will gladly add further rewards if we surpass this amount

... watch this space!

GAME APP.

We intend to produce a high quality GAME APP. version at some stage... we think that word games work fantastically in this format!

We will include a 1 player "solitaire" version of the game as well as multiplayer options.

Game play options will include: variable sized boards, variable speed timers, variable number of games to win and the ability to alter the composition of the lettered and action tile types (including x2 tiles).

... if we manage to get sufficient funding we would gladly provide all our backers a free high quality fully upgraded package (advert free and with access to all game play options) as a stretch reward.

Even if we don't secure enough funding via kickstarter to produce the game app. version we promise that we won't forget any of our backers! Once a game app. version is created all our backers will be provided with the full package for free with an opportunity to become the first TURBO WORDS Champion and win our trophy:

 ... so keep up to date regarding its development by following us on twitter.

We have already completed the board game artwork and commenced the manufacturing process at our own cost; this is why we are not seeking a high funding level

... and why we are able to personally guarantee to complete all the rewards if our target is attained.

We are using Panda Games in China to manufacturer the board game; we are confident that they will produce an extremely high quality product. They have an excellent reputation [please refer to their website: pandagm.com].

We intend to run the offer for just 1 month to keep it fresh and exciting.

We will pay for  "goods in transit" insurance cover at our own expense again for your peace of mind.

We are confident of full provision of all these rewards by the early New Year.

We are aware of the importance of good communication, honesty and transparency... if our project is successful we will provide regular updates re: development/stretch rewards etc and deal with all queries from our backers as a matter of urgency.

We want all our backers to feel happy & secure that we will honour their reward/s

Thanks for your help!

Risks and challenges

Our first edition board games will be manufactured by Panda Games in China.
They are a reputable company and have produced many well known titles.
They manufacture to the very highest standards.
The costs involved make this an extremely competitive way to produce the games.
Obviously, we are fully aware that manufacturing the game in China and the associated shipping/importation could create problems.
However, we believe we have fully addressed these issues and have established the port of delivery for Panda Games and instructed a well known UK based freight forwarding company to deal with all the challenges of importing from this port to the UK, dealing with all customs issues on our behalf.
We do not envisage any significant problems or delays because we are using well established companies with an easily proven track record.
