Re: Feel the Love - Thread # 8
Ok, guys, please, stop posting in Thread 7, you're violating the rules of the community. I entered a disclaimer to stop posting there, and still, I've got posts afterwards. It's not a question of making it to page 1K, it's a question or respecting the spaces this site offered to us.
okay on topic, now that mom yelled at us in the other thread. ( ;-) Julia. )
Soooo, Friday evening I am going to my local board game cafe to meet and hopefully game with Steven Finn or Doctor Finn Games. He is the designer of Biblios. I am stoked about that as i didn't know he was local to me. That is like 4 or 5 designers that are within on hour of where i live.
Ian Brody of Quartermaster General Fame being the other big one from where i live. We also have the designers of amybria and ave that live near me.
Oddly while weight certainly increases cost, there still seems to be a sweet-spot because small weight still seems to require some form of minimum shipping charge for international. I got the two Warhammer Quest packs with only about 12 cards in each and the shipping at the time was ridiculous, but at the time the rumours of the FFG/GW split were all over the internet so I wanted to grab them before the prices went looney-tunes (which they did, so overall I still got a great deal). Hang-on..... Im just gonna go check on the shipping.....BRB....... (Time passes) Right: Card pack: $19.95 Cheapest shipping offered: $19.68 Total: $39.63
So according to XEcurrency calc, the £18 card deck (inc shipping usually) would actually cost me £31 Thats a hell of a mark up!! Also if I get hit for import duty, thats another £8 handling-fee and another 20% tax so £45.20 total for a single pack of cards that usually costs me £18
Yeah not happy at all that they've basically screwed loyal buying customers on this one. Still dont know why they have apparently decided not to import this one single pack.
I think I can get the packs for you, no shipping costs involved, but it could require time (a few months, more or less, my shipping queue at FFG covers some 35 items between full games and expansions, and these would be added to the queue)
Thanks Julia I will keep you posted as theres a good chance they will pop up somewhere at some point
In the mean time I got a reply from FFG saying "Unfortunately we do not control what items our partners wish to sell "
Hehehe thats just not true at all is it
The reply then went on to suggest I but it direct from their website and shipped to UK (see previous post in thread 7 for the vast cost of this).
Also speaking of FFG stupidity does anyone in the know know when Arkham: Dunwich Legacy will be back in stock on CSI or at a decent price on Amazon? I'm really getting sick of Asmodee's "let's reduce stock to online retailers because we can" thing. I'm sure as heck not driving 160 miles to get to an FLGS.
