Kitchen Rush simulates the excitement of a high-pressure kitchen environment through an innovative real-time worker placement mechanism. 1-4 players work together trying to fulfill orders fast enough to earn enough money to keep the business going across 4 rounds of 4 minutes. The fun, excitement and rush it brings to the table offers a full course for gamers and family members alike.

In the game, players use hourglasses as their workers assigning them to various tasks from taking orders, cooking dishes and buying groceries. Any worker placed on an action space may not be used elsewhere before the sand within the hourglass runs out making each decision important as time is limited.

Kitchen Rush is designed by Dávid Turczi, known for his work on Anachrony & Days of Ire: Budapest 1956.

To include any add-ons to your pledge, please click on the "Manage your pledge" button on the top right corner of this page. Increase your total pledged amount to include any add-ons you would like to receive.

By the end of the campaign you will be asked to fill a survey where you will inform us which add-ons you have added in your order.

 

 

The production of Kitchen Rush is scheduled for July-August 2017. The game will be produced in Germany's largest board game manufacturer ensuring a high quality product.

The published product may have differences regarding sizes, quantities, colors and layout because of production limitations and/or adjustments.

Stretch rewards generated through this campaign will be given to all backers free of charge. Keep in mind that these Stretch rewards will not be exclusive and they may become available to acquire in the future at an additional cost. 

 

 We expect to have the game delivered to backers within November 2017. Please keep in mind though, that there is always the chance of the production and handling process getting delayed for various reasons.

Our current shipping solution DOES NOT offer tracking. From past experience we already know that the percentage of lost items is almost 0%. However, If you require tracking for your order, please contact us at support[at]artipiagames.comand let us know. Please note that you will be requested to pay additional shipping costs since your order will have to be handled separately from our group shipping solution.

All orders will be shipped from Greece (EU member). If you have any concerns regarding customs and import taxes for large cost orders, please contact us at support[at]artipiagames.com and we will assist you on that.

In order to keep shipping costs as low as possible, we always try to find the most efficient solutions for mass shipping of games/items. Please note that you may be receiving the games/items you pledged for in more than one package.

If you choose Essen Pick-up pledge level you will be able to collect your game during Spiel 2017 fair (Essen, Germany 26th-29th of October 2017) from Artipia Games booth. If you will not collect your pledge during the fair, we will request additional shipping fees to send your pledge via mail.

IMPORTANT: Kitchen Rush is scheduled to be released at Spiel 2017 in Essen-Germany in October 2017. Note that the only guaranteed way that you will be among the first to get the game, is to select the "Essen 2017" pledge level. Since this is a Spiel 2017 release, several customers and retailers may purchase the game from the fair which means they will get it before our group shipment goes out to backers. However, the Stretch rewards will not be sold to retailers outside of this campaign.

Pledge level: Kitchen Rush - Essen 2017: No shipping involved. A few days before the fair you will receive a unique code with which you will be able to collect your pledge from Artipia Games booth (26 - 29th October 2017 Spiel 2017 Essen, Germany)

Pledge level: Kitchen Rush - Worldwide: Shipping cost automatically adjusted when you pledge as follows:

  • United States - Canada - EU - UK - Luxembourg - Switzerland - Iceland - Norway $7
  • Brazil - China - Macao - United Arab Emirates - Russian Federation $30
  • Rest of the World $12

*NOTE for backers in Italy, Denmark and Chile:Due to delays in previous campaign deliveries to backers in Italy, Denmark and Chile caused by local postal services, we strongly recommend backers from those countries to contact us to arrange registered shipping. If not, please be aware that your package may arrive much later than it will in other countries.

 

Risks and challenges

Risks and challenges

PLEASE READ THIS SECTION CAREFULLY BEFORE PLEDGING ON THIS CAMPAIGN.

PAST CAMPAIGN STATUS

The Pursuit of Happiness: Community expansion is still on schedule for delivery on November 2017. Backers who have selected Essen Pick-up pledge level will collect their pledge at Essen Spiel 2017 fair on October 2017.
All other past campaigns have been delivered.

PRODUCTION RISKS
Items shown in this campaign might differ in the final product due to supplier/manufacturer error. In addition, the production may get delayed due to various reasons. Supplier shortage, holiday traffic and weather conditions are just a few of examples. Artipia Games should not be held responsible for delays caused by third parties.

MISSING / DAMAGED ITEMS
If after receiving your whole order, there are missing/damaged items please inform us by sending an email at support[at]artipiagames.com including some photos of what was damaged. We will send you replacements for the missing/damaged items as soon as possible.
Unfortunately, we are unable to send replacements for damaged inserts/trays.

UNDELIVERED ITEMS
We will re-send any packages returned to us undelivered after we will inform the backer. If a package was not delivered due to a backer's fault (wrong address given, backer didn't claim the delivered package from their post office, etc), we may request additional shipping fees to re-send the package.

DELIVERY DATE
Estimated delivery is November 2017. However third parties involved with the production of items needed to fulfil the campaign may cause unpredictable delays. Also, after sending the packages, further delays may occur due to your local customs and postal services traffic that are out of Artipia Games control.

DELIVERY ADDRESS
After the campaign is over you will be requested to complete a survey including your shipping address. Please provide us a shipping address that will be valid around November 2017. If after filling the survey you wish to alter your shipping address, please send us a message at support[at]artipiagames.com.

ORDER FULFILLMENT
Please note that due to weight limitations in the shipping methods we use, your order may be delivered in multiple packages. Even though all of your packages most probably will get shipped at the same time, there is always a chance they will arrive to you several days apart. This may occur due to each country's postal service sort-and-dispatch system.

REFUNDS
We generally do not offer refunds unless we are completely unable to deliver the project. We will not offer refunds because of delays in delivery or changes/adjustments to the game's components, layout etc. or for damaged components that we are able to replace. We will examine any request for a refund separately and may refund only the cases we feel the request for a refund is justified.

UPDATES
Through this campaign you may receive updates on Artipia Games’ other upcoming projects. Such updates will be rare.

BY MAKING A PLEDGE ON THIS CAMPAIGN, YOU ACKNOWLEDGE THAT YOU HAVE READ, UNDERSTAND AND ACCEPT THE RISKS & CHALLENGES STATED IN THIS SECTION.

REST ASSURED THAT EVEN IF SOMETHING UNPREDICTABLE HAPPENS, WE WILL DO EVERYTHING IN OUR POWER TO DELIVER YOU THE BEST POSSIBLE GAME IN EVERY ASPECT!

Please note that all material depicted in this campaign is a work in progress. Various elements and layouts might change until the game gets produced.
