Hoping someone might know, or if I'm lucky I might get a Riot response.

Can I make a group order and save on shipping to Australia?

Looks like out of people I know (Board gamers and LoL players) there is an interest for 3 copies.

Sorry if this repeats a post, just busy ATM and cant search the forum.

I'm interested in a copy Matthew, but Riot are only allowing one game per order at the moment.

I've saw other threads saying that you are limited to one order per person so group orders wouldn't work.

I'm from Singapore and am trying to find information on shipping to Singapore, when I came across the $60 Australia shipping cost. cry I'm not sure if shipping to Singapore will cost around the same...

Is that an indication of the importance of your question?

There's a whole Aussie thread right here https://www.boardgamegeek.com/thread/1641154/so-6062-shippin...- should check it out.

Found a good thread "Ordering questions".

Which answers my questions.

Stopped watching video previews long enough to search the forum.

As far as I can tell, there's a good chance that the game won't even be shipped to Singapore for the time being:

Sorry for the bad news ...

Yeah I would be in for that but doesn't sound like an option
Question - So what time do I need to set my alarm for on the 14th of Oct (Sydney time)? Some places I've checked say 1am, others say 4am

Oh, I saw on the Riot Games webpage that the game would be in English and Simplified Chinese, so I hold out some hope...

Indeed, it seems strange to print the game in Simplified Chinese and then sell it only in North America, the EU and Australia, so maybe there's hope for you after all. Perhaps Chris Cantrell just forgot to mention parts of the Asian market (since BGG clearly is focused on English language users). He explicitly said that the game won't be sold in Korea and Japan yet, but there was no direct mention of its availability in Chinese-speaking areas, if I remember correctly.

I just hope they're aware enough to know NOT to send the simplified Chinese version to Hong Kong by default.

In case you haven't seen it yet, the game will indeed be shipped to Singapore ($45).

Be optimistic. Riot doesn't have a good idea how many copies it will sell until October's over. If they sell out, sure, they'll limit to one to a customer. If they have a few K left, write a polite PM if they will let you order more. I think Riot also mentioned that they're trying to get a distributor, so shipping prices may go lower.

It's not like there's only a 30-day window to get this stuff...
