I have been reading up on Ground Floor and I am impressed enough to consider kick-staring this game (for delivery in October).

However, to save delivery costs to the UK, it is best to get 6 copies of the game (@$260 / 6 = $43.33 = £27.24 per game + possible import tax). One UK group has already formed a 12, but I missed out on that!

I have therefore post on the following thread asking for other interested gamers to join me to make up a 6.

If anyone else from EGC is interested in kick-starting Ground Floor, please let me know ASAP.

Ditto.

Although the designers game choices/ratings and mine seem to coincide a great deal, perhaps I would like a game he designed too........?

I'm still looking for 2 more games to back this from the UK. Hopefully that will happen before the funding period ends in about 40 days.

Andrew, not sure if you've noticed, but they are now offering Essen 2012 pickup, I'd be happy to mule back a copy for you if it saves you some money (assuming you're not going yourself) as we're driving this year.

That's very kind - but because I'm now organizing a 6-pack, you would need to bring back 6 copies for it to work for my group!

I presume that is too many?

Ah right, so you got the 6 together...I presume it wouldn't save much money then. Any idea how big the box is?

The only saving would be any import tax - which won't be known until the time of delivery. TMG have not announced the size of the box (to my knowledge, at least).

Wow! Ground Floor got its ask-for funding of $15 000 ... by a long margin. $116 000 pledged in the end, so all backers get the dice game Skyline as well.

This game was struggling to reach $75 000 wih just 48 hours to go and has just shot through by a further $40k! Amazing
