About this project
Sid Sackson strikes again! Can't Stop Express is an elegant game where you use a shared dice roll (with the other players), and mark down a "Combo" total (adding the total amount of the two dice). Out of the 5 dice rolled you will always exclude 1 die, and it will be marked in the "5th Die" area (see below). This mechanic functions as a timer throughout the game giving Can't Stop Express a tidy 30 minute play time. Throughout the game you are attempting to score pairs, but you do not immediately receive a positive score. First you must push through the -200pt column to break even, then any successful score of that number becomes positive points. The higher chance to roll a number scores the least amount of points, while the lower chance numbers score the most. See the scorepad below (Column B) for more details.
Can't Stop Express is a great risk vs. reward type of game, spiced with some luck and some calculated decision making. Fantastic for travel, or as a warm up game to get the brain going for game night. Can't Stop Express can be played with more then the suggested players (as long as everyone can see the dice), and is a great solitaire game! The game play is guaranteed to be fun since the all-star designer Sid Sackson designed Can't Stop Express, a game you will keep coming back to for years to come.
Can't Stop Express plays similarly to the original Can't Stop where you push your luck with the dice, and make tough decisions while weighing the risks to win the game!
We are proud announce a new partnership with Pledge Manager! It is our hope that by using Pledge Manager we can streamline the check out and add-on process making things much easier for you as a backer!
Most of you won’t recognize this man, but you should. Before he passed away in 2002, he designed games, hundreds of games, and his name was Sid Sackson.
Sid Sackson is probably the most prolific and influential American game designer and is often referred to within the gaming community as “The Guru of Games.” He started designing games as a child and throughout his career he won numerous awards in the field, most notably the coveted Spiel des Jahres (the German Game of the Year) award, the most prestigious game design award. Some of his best-known games are Acquire, Domination, Can’t Stop, BuyWord, I’m the Boss, and Bazaar.
We want to give a special thanks to our Print Partners & Fulfillment Partners from around the world. Without our partners, shipping prices would be more expensive, and their services keeps the shipping rates at a fair price so you can focus on gaming!
We are also working with our fulfillment partners to reduce your shipping costs as much as possible. Our goal is to charge you "actual shipping" and nothing more. This Includes postal charges, as well as the extra overhead/fulfillment fees that we have to pay to get the games to you. You'll notice an immediate reduction in the shipping costs to these specific countries: UK, Germany, China, Hong Kong, and the EU in general (prices vary within the EU).
We are still working on finding a few more fulfillment partners, in order to get you even better prices on some of the harder countries to ship too. Please also keep in mind that shipping rates get much better as the total weight of your order gets over 4, or 5 lbs. So if you'd really like to get some of our smaller games, like Can't Stop Express, but are intimidated by the high price of shipping for just 1 EGG Series game. We recommend you look into adding some add-ons to your order, and you'll notice that after the first few pounds that shipping doesn't increase as much.
Below is a shipping chart that shows estimates for that given region. You will never be charged more than the estimate, and in most cases will end up paying less than the estimated shipping cost during check out.
To get your exact shipping cost ahead of time, please refer to our "advanced weight chart".
If you have any questions, or concerns regarding shipping, please feel free to reach out to us anytime!

Risks and challenges
Eagle-Gryphon Games has completed 70+ Kickstarter projects to date. All of those projects have either been completely delivered or are in production right now!
Eagle-Gryphon Games stands by our products. Please contact our customer service department at email@example.com within 30 days of receiving your pledge reward(s) if you are for any reason unsatisfied. We will take every step available to get you exactly what you purchased. We will also send you tracking information whenever possible to remain transparent throughout the delivery of your purchase.
We will always do our best through Kickstarter updates to keep you as informed as possible as to the status of your game(s). However, in this business, some uncertain and ever-changing factors are beyond our control, such as holidays, customs, quality control, inspection delays, inclement weather and dock strikes - to name a few. As you can imagine, we have little to no control over such factors. We assure you that you will be the first to know any developments as we learn them.
To put it simply, you will get everything we promise to you when you pledge to one of our Kickstarter projects, and it will be delivered to you in as timely a manner as possible.
We ship your game(s) to you via various fulfillment partners located around the world. We do this to keep expenses as low as possible and hope that you will see this change reflected in the shipping costs for our projects.
We reserve the right to combine the shipping of any and all pledges for multiple projects if the shipping runs close to the same time and we can ship them all within a reasonable time frame (30 days) of us receiving them. We will advise you as soon as possible if it looks like we will delay shipping for this reason. You will always have the right to pay additional fees to get expedited delivery on orders.
Shipping issues are relatively uncommon, but they do sometimes occur. We double check all of your games for damage before sending them to you. However, there is a small chance that your games may get damaged during shipping by the carrier. If your package is damaged, please contact us so we can assist you.
We will not ship to Russia, the Ukraine and certain places in Asia and the rest of the world, except for specially-made arrangements wherein the Backer takes the risk involved in receiving the package.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
