Speedy-Krate Haulage Co.

Welcome to 'Northman board Games'.

Do you like lorries and driving?

Here’s something for you...

Number 4 in the AVENTYR series.

Speedy - Krate Haulage Co.

You are a lorry driver working for the Speedy–Krate Haulage Co. based at the lorry depot at Upper Snotting. The owner of the company, Algernon P. Speedy-Krate, has in place an ‘Employee of the month’ scheme that sees the driver who delivers the most consignments in a day getting an award. Last month, it was a BIG bucket of mint choc chip ice cream.

Competition is fierce.

Unfortunately, there are lots of things that may get in your way of doing deliveries. You may have an engine problem or a closed road ahead means taking a big diversion. There might be a policeman that requires you to turn back but, then again, you might be unloaded by a forklift quicker than expected or find a shorter lorry route.

Once everyone has returned to the lorry depot, the driver that has delivered the most goods is the winner.

There are many twists and turns providing fun and laughter along the way. 

You don’t need to know anything about lorries or how to drive to play it.

The rules are easy to read and understand and it can be played by 1 person (record your score, play again and try to beat that score) or as many people as you can get around the board.

It has been designed as a game for adults but it’s also very suitable for kids of about 8 years and above. Because it’s quite fast moving, it does seem to hold the attention of young ones well.

The artwork on the board has some interesting and sometimes unexpected things to look at.

A 40 turn game takes about 20 minutes per person to play, a 30 turn game about 15 so it’s not long and tedious like some board games.

Contained within each box is a game board, 20 game play cards, 6 coloured counters, 2 x 6 sided dice, 1 x 4 sided dice and 1 x 20 sided dice.

Important note The ‘How to play’ sheets and the score / turn recording sheets are not included within the box. These are necessary to play the game but, happily, they are available to download free of charge by clicking on the links you see below.

You are most welcome to download these before you buy to see how easy the game is to play and to make sure that it’s suitable for your needs.

Being less expensive than a mediocre meal out for two, you’ll find that buying this game will be money well spent as it will provide many occasions where family and friends sit around a table to play, chat and laugh with each other.

It’s time to reconnect with people…

Now, where’s the pizza delivery number…?
