I am thinking about importing Glen More from Europe (German). Is anyone interested in a group purchase to save on shipping?

I'd recommend getting it from Board Game Bliss, they charge US shipping rates since they're just across the border in Canada.

Thank you! That indeed looks like a great option, although shipping for one copy is pretty expensive. If we do a bulk purchase and exceed $200 CAD the shipping is free, so I'm still willing to coordinate a group purchase.

If you're still thinking about ordering from Europe, I'd be wary of ordering from Amazon.de. I've found there's a decent chance at least one of your games will be damaged in transit. In my case, an order I placed a few months ago came with a damaged copy of Glen More!

Wow, thank you the heads up! That's very unfortunate. Were the contents damaged or only the box? Did you report this to Amazon?

I actually have a few options for the import, including Poland, but it's good to know about Amazon.de.

It was just the box -- and it wasn't a huge amount of damage, but there were a couple of noticeable creases on the front & top:



Keyflower: The Merchants -- which was also inside the same box from Amazon.de -- wasn't so fortunate. There was a hole in the corner of the box, and the interior was also not in great shape.

I notified Amazon.de and they compensated me fairly. But if having pristine boxes are important to you, you should be aware.

That's pretty significant damage. Thank you again for the warning.
