We are almost to goal and want to let you know about our reach goals.

REACH GOALS:

$15,000 - We will replace the traditional pawn with an airplane pawn.  This will further promote the airplane theme.

$17,500 - All people who pledge will be part of the HUB SELECTION COMMITTEE for the next edition, Expedite North America.  We will send out a survey to all of our partners with the original version of Expedite to allow you a chance to voice your opinion of what 30 cities will make the next board.

About Expedite

You are a shipping magnate who is racing to purchase hubs around the world and transport goods from one corner of the map to the other without giving your opponents any of your well earned points.  Create your trans-world network of hubs and move fast.  If you wait too long, you may lose that key hub and have to pay precious points away that were supposed to be yours.  If you control the hubs, you control the game.

Expedite is a strategic 2-4 player route-building game.  The game is a fast paced race to 100 points for the win.  Players chose between four options per turn.  Each option may not only advance their position but may advance opponents as well.  There are two unique elements of Expedite.  The first is the ability to buy hubs away from opposing players, providing an endless variety of strategy.  The second is the splitting of available points when a World Trade Card is played.

Combining skill and luck, Expedite offers 100's of hours of game play.  It is easy and intuitive for novice board game players, but the interwoven nature of the game will provide a challenge for experienced players.  See the video above for a brief overview of Expedite.

Why do we need your help thru Kickstarter?

We at Turnham Games believe Expedite has world wide appeal.  Beyond just assisting monetarily to the publishing of the first edition of Expedite, Kickstarter provides us with an ideal target market for this European style board game.  Expedite is a game where the player is out to win, not a game where other players lose, while only taking 30 minutes.

Limited Edition - Kickstarter Only Offer

Qualifying pledges will receive a Limited Edition 54 World Trade Card Set. 

This set will bring the total number of World Trade Cards to 108 and it will never be printed again.

Publisher is requiring a minimum of 250 unit purchase.

Who is Turnham Games?

Turnham Games LLC was created by three friends who have spent countless hours playing different types of games together. Card games, board games, and even basketball have build the bond of the founders and designers.  During all of our time together, we would bounce ideas off each other for what would be the next great game.  In the process, we believe we have created it with Expedite.  What is even more exciting is the pipeline has even more games to come from Turnham Games.
