Project overview

You're here to complete the process of backing Mini Express that began with the pledge you made on Kickstarter (Link to campaign page on KS).

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.
For Late Pledges: Don't worry if you missed the KS campaign! Now you can make a Late Pledge and choose add-ons right on this page.
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. 

To Complete Your Order
  1. Check/Upgrade Your Pledge. Backer rewards from your Kickstarter pledge are already added to your cart. If you want to upgrade, remove the current item from your cart and choose another one.
  2. Get Your Add-ons. Scroll to the Add-Ons section to add other items from the campaign to your order.
  3. Checkout. Head to the checkout, where you will fill out your delivery address and pay the balance for shipping and any add-ons. They will be a credit equal to the amount you pledged on Kickstarter.

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.

The current estimated delivery date is January 2021.

This project is Customs Friendly in US, CA, EU, AU, NZ
List of VAT-Free areas by VFI Asia:  
Australia, Bahrain, Brazil, Indonesia, Kuwait, Macao, Malaysia, New Zealand, Philippines, Singapore, South Africa, Thailand, Vietnam.

United Kingdom: We are keeping an eye on how import customs will change after Brexit. Our original plan was to deliver the games before the end of 2020, but now that it is delayed, nobody that we have contacted is sure what will happen yet.

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.
