Oh yes, hopefully you can manage to drop the shipping of your products from the store to that level. I imagine that would double your sales to rest of the world. Or at least EU.

Wow, that is cheaper than shipping in the US! Shipping to Washington state was over $16 in my pre order.

Curious how that works.
$10 to UK
$15 to EU
$17 to USA
$27 to Canada
$48 to Japan (unless its Fantasy Flight via BookDepository, games here are an expensive hobby)

Unless they're being produced in the UK (which seems unlikely) thats a strange combination of rates. I'd like to know how you managed to get the price down, as any method of reducing those additional expenses is something I'd like to see more games companies doing (even if it doesn't affect those of us in more far-flung locales).

We are working on better rates for Canada now. If you are in Canada and have ordered before we get the reduced rates we will refund the difference.

We are using a fulfillment company in the UK (and also plan to do so in Canada). We will ship the EU pre-order copies to the UK directly from China. The US rates are between 6 and 17 dollars I believe, depending on where you are in the country.

I'm sorry Australia, NZ and Asia I just don't have any good options for you at this time other than waiting for it to hit distribution.

This is great, as a UK resident I really appreciate that you took the time to do this :)

My only question is how long will this offer be open too? I've had some big bills come out this month and cant afford to pre-order until the end of December. Will the offer be open until then? I'd hate to miss out on it.

When I fill in a shipping address to e.g. Germany, I get a $15 shipping cost as advertised. However if I fill in a shipping address to Greece, I get $43 shipping cost (from the USPS/US warehouse location I assume, instead of the U.K. one). Greece is in the E.U., if the offer is not valid for all E.U. countries, it should be mentioned in the preorder offer.

Erodisain that was an oversight. We have fixed it to include Greece.

Any chance there is a solution for the high shipping prices to China? Hell, there's a high likelihood it's manufactured in my city (a lot of boardgames are), I'll pick it up at the factory :p

But seriously, I would.

When is the last date for preorder?

cadrian commented:

Is the discount for the transport still available? I would really like to get this as soon as possible, but seems a waste to pay 56$ for the's more than the current price for the game.

Trying to pre order from Spain (Europe) but the only shipping option is USPS Priority Mail International ($47,39)

I am trying to preorder from Finland (EU) but the only shipping option is USPS Priority Mail International ($47,39). I am really looking forward to buying this game, but that shipping price is too steep for me.

Is the preorder discount ($15) in the EU still available?
