For KS Backers: You will be using this website to choose add-ons for your pledge and calculate shipping fees. We will send out invites once KS has finalized the backer list.

Notice on Credit Card Issues: Please check with your bank first if you have a failed payment. The merchant name for the transaction is "Moaideas Game Design" or "Gamefound". The payment currency is in US Dollars, but sometimes it may be routed to Stripe's Japan server, so the origin of the transaction might be from Japan. 
 
 
Game Introduction
Mini Express is the second collaboration between designer Mark Gerrits (Mini Rails, SteamRollers) and Moaideas Game Design (Mini Rails, The Flow of History, Tulip Bubble, Symphony No.9). 

If you enjoyed Mini Rails, you’ll love exploring the various strategies of Mini Express — the direct sequel to Mini Rails; we know we have. Mark Gerrits and Moaideas Game Design have distilled the complex gameplay of 18XX games into a straightforward family-friendly hour-long gaming experience for your gaming table.

Mini Express is a luckless train game for 3 to 5 players where you and other wealthy capitalists manage four railroad companies. Through careful planning and ruthless execution, players pioneer the western expansion of the 19th century vying to be the most influential railroad baron and complete the transcontinental railroad.

Israel: After consultation with a few backers from Israel, it should be better to send by TW Post since your order will likely not pass the duty threshold. Thus it is removed from VFI fulfillment.
