Say what one will about all the trouble involved in actually getting this thing purchased on day one (90minutes hitting F5), but I will go on record saying this:
1) RIOT did a fine job of posting to BGG and updating us with, as best they could, the state of affairs, including best guess availability,
2) RIOT appears to be committed to both a well-produced game, getting it out to everyone that wants one (sooner of later), and honest, open communicaiton; and
3) they only charged $5 to ship this to VA. I was expecting a lot more, and frankly RIOT was in a position here to increase their $$Take, but clearly chose a better way. To me, that says more than anything about this company.
Until shown otherwise, ROIT has my support.
(And I assume gained some good insight into the Check-Out Cart capacity...)

I'm not sure about other states but we here in CA (where RIOT is located) are getting charged $5.63 for tax. So you may be getting it cheaper.

I wish I could just drive over to RIOT HQ and grab a copy!

$20 shipping to AK, but that's to be expected. I'm just glad I was able to order a copy!

No tax and $5 shipping here in Arizona. California has a lot of crazy regulations and laws though, so I would not be surprised to see a tax.

Just to be the "tax" guy.

If your state has a sales and use tax, you are responsible to pay the tax. (it's called self-assess)

If a company has a presence in your state it is required to collect the tax.

So California, they charge the tax. Probably Wisconsin where their warehouse is. But not Texas (or Connecticut)

You are supposed to self assess!

I thought $20 to Alaska was a great deal especially as much as CMoN keeps charging us up here. They (CMoN) must use Sled Dog Service. . .
