Airlines - Golden Age of Aviation

$30,338

433

Unlocked SG - $30K -  Brand new Plastic insert - #Limited Edition !

Background:

In the late 1950s the commercial aviation market entered a golden age, new airliners filled the sky and made the entire globe feel very small. In Airlines players will start a new airline company and strive to become the most successful one by the end of the game.

 

The game will be published in English and German. The game is language independent so you can play it easily with your friends.

 

 

 

For more details about Airlines please read the Rules*

The Rules are not final - some images and rules are subject to changes.

 

As we developed Airlines, we managed to design two versions of the game: An easy to play edition that would appeal to all players (60 mins) and a more in depth strategic edition of the game that would appeal to Gamers (120+ mins).

We thought hard and long and decided to publish both games! 

The regular edition - will include the first game only.

The limited edition will include both games in the same box (!) - a game that you can play with anyone (Ticket to Ride-Ish) and the game you wish to play with your hardcore gaming group.

 

You can find more detailed component information in the section below.

We are celebrating our 5th (!) Spiel convention - and we are inviting all attending players to come and play with us ;)

Airlines is scheduled to have a pre-release at the upcoming Spiel `16 in Essen, Germany. We will demo the game and we will have (very!) limited copies that will be sent directly from our manufacturer to the convention. You are all invited to visit us on our booth: Hall 1  (Next to CGE & Bezier Games) .

DO NOT FORGET TO ASK FOR a Signature !!!

 

Our company has developed the game to a point where we are ready to produce it. As this is our 11th published board game, most of our capital was invested in our previous games and we need your help to get a better production value for Airlines. Each backer can literally make the game better by allowing us to invest in better components than our very limited budget can support. A successful campaign will also allow our design team to push forward additional game designs toward publication. Please visit our website to find out more.

 

 

During this project we decided to host a series of Live stream sessions via TableTopia. We will post here a broadcasting schedule. We are planning to post those videos later on our YouTube channel and on the "more videos" section.

PM us if you wish to get a TableTopia room invitation.

 

 

 

We will post more Live Sessions via YouTube very soon...

We will continue working with BACKERKIT to provide all our backers an easier platform to manage their pledges after the project has ended.

Thank you for choosing Airlines!

 

 

 

Risks and challenges

"Airlines" is our 10th (!) KS project and we have a lot of experience with the risks and challenges that we might face while fulfilling this project.

Delays in production:
We might still face some unexpected delays during the 3 steps of production: graphic design (corrections), printing and quality checks.
Delays in logistics:
We might face some delays in shipping the games, with ocean freight, importing and customs process and with final distribution.

To sustain and fulfill rewards, we have signed a top quality printer who specializes in complex board game production (e.g., Agricola).

Game production has already started, so no delays in production are expected and first copies might be available during the upcoming Spiel (October 2016) in Essen, Germany.

The main uncertainty factor will be how many stretch goals we can reach. As we reach more stretch goals, there may be a delay in reward shipment (could even be after the retail version is out in the market) as specialized copies might take a bit more time to be ready for shipment.
We might split fulfillment into two stages: base game and stretch goals so you can enjoy your copy of Airlines as soon as possible.

Shipping the rewards to your personal address is a great feat for any publisher and we might need 2-3 shipments to get all of the components to your doorstep. Please be patient and acknowledge the time and effort we are investing in order to get ALL of your rewards.

Money Back Guarantee Policy
As this is our 10th KS project, we have already invested a significant budget to produce the game and bring it to a point where it is ready for printing. We have already signed our manufacturer and have a very tight production schedule. Thus, we have decided to go ahead with the following 100% money back guarantee policy:
If you do not receive your rewards by the end of April 2017, a refund will be issued through your Amazon Payments account*.

We took into account all delays we encountered in our previous projects and we can assure that 100% of your pledge will go directly to our manufacturer.

*Disclaimer:
It is the backer's responsibility to provide his (correct) address within a reasonable time frame. Any delays on the part of the backer will not be covered by our 100% money back policy.
If a package is not delivered due to a backer fault (giving a wrong address, not claiming the delivered package from the post office, etc.), the backer may be requested to pay additional shipping fees for the item to be sent out again.
Any delays caused by customs inspections or by the backer's country's postal services will not be covered in the 100% money back policy.
We cannot provide tracking numbers to some international locations.
