Trading: Please state the condition of your games.
If you contact me to make a trade, please let me know what it is you are expecting in return; asking me to make an offer for your game(s) will only get a response if I am the one who contacted you.
When shipping from the US --> USPS ONLY, please!
Please note: When shipping from the US, only shipping via USPS is accepted. UPS, FedEx and such, sometimes charge an outrageous "brokerage" fee, therefore if your package arrives with such fees, it will be refused. If you have any questions on this, please let me know BEFORE you ship.
Shipping time within Canada and the US
Expect 2 to 7 days, depending on distance from Ottawa, ON. If you are on the West Coast, expect about 7 days for the package to reach you.
Shipping within Canada
There is only one parcel category, and cost varies between $12 and $20 for 1 game, depending on area and weight.
Shipping to the US
When shipping to the US from Canada, there are three parcel categories, those being small, medium and large. The cost is based on overall area (Length x Width x Height), which is then multiplied by weight.
NEW NOTE: US Customs now requires the receiver's phone number for a package to be shipped into the US. Please provide this in your trade request!
Shipping a single game costs between $10 (Medici vs Strozzi) and $25 (standard FFG box size) for the first game, then add $3-5 dollars per game, depending on size & weight.
Shipping to Europe or Australasia or Asia
Surface: 6 - 8 weeks delivery time
Air: about 1 week delivery time
Cost at this end Shipping Merchants & Marauders to Europe costs $45-50 by surface mail, and takes 6 to 8 weeks to arrive. By air it's $90-$100...
Larger games such as Axis & Allies Anniversary Edition, shipped to Europe, would cost $65 via surface mail, and $115 via air mail...
With costs such as these, I hope you understand why it is pointless for me to consider trades outside Canada and the US when the weight exceeds 2Kg unless either money or items are offered to make up the shipping difference.
Exception Under 2Kg
I will, however, consider trades to Europe if the total weight is under 2 Kg, including packing materials.
Priority/preference will go to Canadian residents, multi-game/larger value trades and/or OOP games.
