At thalia.de (same group as buch.de and bol.de) you have the same prices and new customers can also use the code SPRING20 here (-20%). So you get Concordia for pretty nice 20€. meeple

That's less than half the price than it is in the UK! The image on thalia shows the back saying "english materials included". I wonder if that's accurate to the product or just a generic image they're using....

If by chance the rulebook should be not included look at the publisher's homepage:

Additionally, the links for Japanese/Italian and French rules lead you back to BGG

Thanks for the link! My only concern is about game materials, like cards, that seem to have a lot of text! Maybe I should just learn German and I could save a load of money buying euro games from Germany....

At least from this review (http://cliquenabend.de/spiele/298100-Concordia.html) I got that:

"Zu den Besonderheiten zählen auch die Karten, denn es gibt ein Set sowohl auf Deutsch als auch auf Englisch."

-> "A feature is also that additionally to the german card-set, an english one exists."

I do not know if it is the case for the current version.

Still, at the homepage of my last reply, there is also a overview of the cards in english language under the Union Flag

I think it will be perfectly possible for you to get the hang of the cards and enjoy the game. I think in there will also be at least a seperate reference to the cards within the english manual!

Edit: In this review (http://www.brettspiel-lichtbilder.de/2014/03/concordia.html) there is also a reference within the "Spielmaterial"-section:

"72 Spielkarten (deutsch und englisch)", meaning that there are 72 german as well as english cards. If both languages exist on the same card or if there is an additional set of cards, I really don't know.

Wow, thanks for that, I've ordered it, so fingers crossed!

Hmmm, it seems as an international customer I can only pay with IBAN bank transfer, and my bank charges me £25 per transfer, so it's not worth it.

This works out much cheaper.
I've used it twice.

PS This is a direct link and not an affiliate link that benefits me!

Just looked on Thalia and was going to get Concordia and Han, the site states that shipping to the UK is 8 Euros regardless of value. But at the checkout it's telling me 15 Euros, what gives?

Might have answered my own question, UK isn't listed as a country they ship to it seems.

As is stated on their homepage concerning this topic (http://www.thalia.de/shop/hilfe-versand/show/) it really seems that the delivery costs outside of Germany are country-dependent between 3,50€ and 13€ but only valid for:

Swiss, Austria, Belgium, Denmark, Finland, France, Italy, Liechtenstein, Luxemburg, Monaco, the Netherlands, Norway, Portugal, Sweden, Spain and Vatican City State.

Couldn't find anything else about deliveries to UK.

Thanks for the info! I'm trying transfer-wise to pay for it instead of paying the bank £25 to transfer, I'll see if it works...

Excellent news, thanks for posting. Will make my order soon was a little disappointed because I tried to make a big order yesterday and spotted an amazing deal on Alhambra Gold + Expansion for 18 euro pre-discount code but they won't send this item to the UK.

Any suggestions of games to add to my Thalia order? So far Port Royal, Saboteur, Saboteur 2 (expansion-only editions), Concordia and Village: Inn. Not sure whether I should chuck Camel Up in there as don't really play with family or younger people.

I've got Alhambra Gold on my order- where does it say it won't deliver to the UK? I'm getting Alhambra Gold, Lancaster and Amerigo all delivered to the UK (at least I hope so!)

Was it the same deal? 18 Euro, with the first expansion included? It went in the basket fine but flagged it up and wouldn't let me complete the order when I tried to put it through. I contacted Thalia and they said for logistics reasons there are some products that won't ship to the UK (they're stored in different warehouses). Tell me if you have luck, will try again myself.

thalia says that they also acccept Paypal (probably the most convinient way to pay cross borders in online shopping) and credit cards (Visa, Eurocard/Mastercard):

Heavy riffs above ordered Han (you could see that as an anniversary edition of China aka Web of Power), not that much of a hot deal as 20€ for Concordia, but well worth 20€ I think!
Istanbul at 20€ is good, too (no ingame text)
Here's a German list of titles at thalia which are actually really cheap with the code (as they are already on sale):
http://www.spielesparer.blogspot.de/2015/04/neuer-thaliade-g...

Of small games I really like Skull King (trick taking), 6.40€ at thalia.

The 20% code will only work until sunday, so don't wait to long.


Edit:
There are also some English game offers!
http://spielesparer.blogspot.de/2015/04/20-bei-thaliade-fur-...
(but not all of the offers are ready to ship now, don't know if that's a problem with combined orders)
