They've guaranteed no import duty, or rather it's already covered in the cost by their shipping partners.

Oh I just meant on the Kickstater; it's being released at a similar time, judging by the estimation date.

Add me in please. Out of interest, do they post all ten to one location and then we need to ship it on to the individual locations, or is it just a case of order 10 copies at once and they'll ship them to different addresses? (not been in any group buys before :thinking )

Sorry, I don't follow. The Kickstarter for the original game ended in May.

Ah, my bad. I was under the impression you could still back after the funding ended. Never mind!

Ah, ok. I thought I was missing something then. It is coming to iOS though if that's any use to you.

I'll need to ship them on, so that postage will need to be factored in to total cost.

All the best stretch goals have been unlocked - we now have 5 players, 3 caboose extensions (12 cards in total) and the travel bag (quite handy!).

The remaining 2 are a shinier box and a wooden start player token, which I'm less excited about.

I've just backed for $97 (1 copy at $7, 10 copies at $8, shipping at $10).

So it's $8.82 (or whatever that works out to in £) each, plus shipping at this end. To make things simpler if it's OK with everyone I'll just pay up front and then when the games actually get sent out and I know what shipping is I'll give everyone final figures to do a bank transfer to me.

Well we should pay you the game cost now at the very least and work the shipping out later. You're £55 or whatever out of pocket else until October. If you want to PM me your PayPal address I'll happily send you a fiver or so now. Seems only fair.

If you don't mind. They aren't supposed to ship until October.

Absolutely.

If you want to have a guess at the cost of postage and then round up, I'm happy to send over now.

There's no rush as I'm not particularly strapped for cash. The only potential issue is if for some reason they don't deliver the product, but I can't see that happening.

Think I'm fairly safe trusting you lot. Board game people are a pretty good bunch. :)

35 Hours left! Wooden train and the blank Caboose cards now in.

He's even noted that it pays for EU members to not do the 10-pack but to add on separately, as I noted before:

The 10-Pack Tier is really only for International Backers outside of Canada and the EU as well as Retail Stores. All other backers will save money and "game the system" by simply adding in extra copies for only $8 each
