Ouch! Now I know why people were complaining about this being an international affair. It looks like I won't be able to make it out of here without having to drop at least $70. That's more than I spend on my own family! I guess I'm a cheapa$$!

Really, you don't have a choice!

You kidding and waste such a good find. I'd have to be greedy and not give up an OOP game like MAR.

So which thread is the best one to taunt my target in? This one, the original or a new dedicated-to-taunting one?

Try http://www.ludibay.net
They are a good store, lots of new games and shipping cost fixed to 12EUR (or free shipping on orders over 200EUR but you wont spend that much right? =)

EDIT:

Try http://www.philibertnet.com
Good store, lost of new stuff and shipping cost to Switz for 8 EUR!! (free shipping over 160 EUR)

EDIT 2:

OK, i've compiled a nice list of stores in Europe to help non-europeans in their buys for European targets.
It's here: http://www.boardgamegeek.com/thread/243939

Wouldn't it be cool if we had STATISTICS on Secret Santa? Like:
- number of participants
- participating countries and their % of targets against total

I say start a new taunt-tease thread. This one has too many other things going on with it...

No, no, I won't. (I actually have a somewhat good reason to open mine early, if it comes in time--my mother-in-law wants to buy me a game, so I need to make sure it's not the same one I get from Santa.)

My target's gift will be on its way post-Thanksgiving (per Thoughthammer!) ... However, 'cause I'm a Christmas is a year-round-season-kind-of-guy, I can see surprising my Secret Santa over the course of the year at random moments . . .

Who says it has to be limited to just once a year!

I've sent to Poland before using GiochinScatola. They charged something like 9 Euros to ship there. So, it was about $10.

Hooray, I've been waiting for this since last year! Ooo this is gonna be so much fun - I'm honestly excited ^_^ Last year was my first and I really had a blast. Christmas is such a wonderful time

Just remember to think about customs duty, everyone! Don't want that Christmas present to come with a bill now do you...

I just sent my target in Europe a game from Shire Games in the UK that while it wasn't super-cheap on shipping, it seemed reasonable. European shipping costs are NEVER pretty from what I can tell...

With Europe sometimes it's cheaper to order a game from country a and have it sent to country b than to order a game directly from country b.

Many of the smaller/further away countries such as the one I'm hailing from are expensive in both games and shipping.
