Game Tiles - Kick Starter and Shipping to Europe 1 Year, 7 Months ago  
I am certain I am not the only European who has pledged an amount that has been 'limited' by the shipping costs.

For me I have pledged: $335.00.
But that is only $235.00 + $100 Shipping for outside the US.

Q. As we now enjoy a fantastic European DF stockist. Could some arrangement be made for us buyers in Europe where the sets are shipped en-mass to Europe and then final split shipments to backers from there ??

If something could be arranged I would be pledging more.
My issue is that the next pledge point doubles the p&p to $200 (Yikes!)
I am happy to pledge more. But I want it to go to this Kick Starter and not just to Shipping.



...I am also choosing to ignore the fact that I will have to pay import duty taxes if this is shipped to me from the US.

just to dot it that you know I have read it.

I don't have an answer yet - and likely won't have before I go on holiday.

That's the point, I agree with dandare.
I would like to pledge, but I make numbers and with the shipping+the customs the price rises too much.

What I mean is... If I pledge for 5 set expertly painted I'd pay $380+ $200 shipping. That's $580. If we add the customs, which have no fixed costs, let's add $150. And you can bet that the customs are to be paid since we are talking about huge and heavy boxes. The sum of all costs are $730, and that's a pledge for 10 sets expertly painted!! I want to give my money to Dwarven Forge, not the other guys!

Well, there's more than a month to end the Kickstarter. If you make an arrangement between USA and EU and things goes easier for us to pledge, I'm sure you will have a lot of european customer pledging.

Pokorny is the man.

I agree too. I'm a hard core DF fan with well over 60 sets. I bought 4 of the recently released Catacombs sets. I want to back this just because DF are doing it but I'm not convinced by this deal if you live in Europe?

Buying more basic sets at the above final prices after p+p and shipping makes it not much cheaper than buying the traditional polystone sets?

If tehre was a cheaper shipping option, (happy to wait longer) my group would probably buy at least 5 more painted sets. I'm sure that would apply to a lot of other European customers too.

I'm looking into options. No promises - but believe me I'm listening and try to find an option that works for DF, me and my European customers.
I will be slow responding from now as I'm on the way to the airport fr holiday with the family.

Update:
Wifi established here and organized half an hour online time - check
Contact with Jeff - check

So please be patient. The whole Kickstarter is still a whole month and it might just take a few days extra as I'm here.

Sunny weather - check
Gorgeous pool - check
Breakfast - need to pick up my family now

I know if the shipping can be reduced I will be putting in a pledge for 5 or 10 sets. Again, dont care if its delayed more.

I've never seen these types of products for RPing before but the kickstart has opened my eyes! My inner DM couldnt be more excited about using these if only shipping wasnt so large.

Can you confirm it ?

Hi there.

Just to add one more voice :-)

I do not care (too!!) much if it takes another couple of weeks (or even a month or more) to ship if we can avoid paying the very heavy shipping costs. I understand that the stuiff is heavy, but like most people here, I'd rather the money went to DF and not the post service...

Have a great holiday btw :-)

I am flying into Paris for a few days and then on to Prague with my wife sometime around Christmas. This SHOULD be plenty of time to get my game tiles, assuming there are no delays. We should only need 1 suitcase and I think the airline will allow me 2 each, so I could potentially fill 3 suitcases with DF, up to whatever the weight limit is. If someone wanted to work out a deal, I might be willing to meet up with them there or even ship them out.

I'd have to see what all the restrictions are before I commit, but I wanted to throw that out there to see if anyone is actually interested.

As a side note, does anyone know of some good game shops in Paris or Prague?
