About

Just the Ticket is a fast-moving card game where you're tasked with creating a faster, more powerful, more comfortable and bigger train than anyone else!

This is a 2 - 5 player game, for all ages, taking 10-30 minutes to play depending on the number of players. It only takes a few minutes to learn or to demo!  

The game is set in the Golden Age of Steam where a number of entrepreneurs have set out to supply trains to their international clientèle: you are one of these entrepreneurs and you'll do everything you can to make sure your train is the best of the best!

Your train will be made up of the cards that you collect during the game including:

1 Engine, 1 Tender, 1 Fuel, 1 Crew and however many carriages you think you need to win the game
1 Engine, 1 Tender, 1 Fuel, 1 Crew and however many carriages you think you need to win the game

How to Play

To play the game, a nominated player selects 1 Enquiry Card. This sets out the objective of the game:

Having selected an Enquiry Card, each player must then select a Crew Card which sets the baseline scores for Speed, Power, Comfort and Capacity for the players train - these are the four attributes that the trains will be judged on:

Each player then takes one card at a time from the Train Cards pile to begin assembling their train. A player can try and win the game by submitting their train when they fulfil the objective set out by the Enquiry Card, and their train has all the components required (1 Crew, 1 Engine, 1 Tender, 1 Fuel, and as many carriages as they feel they need):

The remaining players can each take 1 more card from the train cards pile before submitting their train. If they can't fulfil the Enquiry Cards objective then they lose the game, is they can then they submit this train. The train that best fulfils the objective on the Enquiry Card is the winner.

What's Included

In all, there are 54 cards, each meticulously designed and printed on glossy, durable gaming card. These are presented in a card box. 

Included in the game are:

  • 2 Instruction/Help Cards
  • 7 Enquiry Cards
  • 5 Crew Cards
  • 40 Train Cards

Why Just the Ticket needs your help

This is a Kickstarter campaign in its purest form in that if we don't reach our funding goal, Just the Ticket simply won't make it in to the world at all. The primary reason is we've worked really hard to find a supplier that is reasonable priced and can work to relatively low volumes, but even then they have a minimum order quantity that's established our pledge structure. That plus freight shipping and the art, design, individual shipping, and Kickstarter processing fees amount to our goal. We really believe in this game and we're doing everything we can to make it a success, but we need your help to place the first order. As we strive to meet our goal, you are enabling us to increase the first print run of the game so we can get more copies of Just the Ticket in to the big wide world. In fact, if we get enough support, we want to go above and beyond to reward you through our stretch goals.

Stretch Goals

There are a number of upgrades that will be offered if the project exceeds its initial funding target:

Risks and challenges

We've managed to set up relationships with experienced teams of people to do printing, shipping and distribution from an organisational side of things. We've carried out a quality check on the proposed finished product and we're sure that it'll meet your expectations.

This is essentially a card printing, packaging and delivery project. By its very nature, it's one of the less complicated projects I've worked on and so I'm certain it's one I'll be able to promptly fulfil!
