I stopped updating the list near the end of 2014 (due to personal reasons, a few weeks of December were missed). For current projects, please see the 2015 Geeklist here:

2015 · Crowdfunded games shipping from within the European Union


This GeekList is intended to be a summary of active boardgame crowdfunding projects which will ship their games from within the European Union for EU backers, which can make a huge difference (here's a detailed post if you are interested).

Have you ever wondered why most successful Kickstarter projects have a small percentage of overseas backers? Well, here's a powerful reason why - the prospect of games being stopped at customs. As an example, I live in Spain and any package over $30 coming from the USA will be stopped at customs for several days, then held until I pay VAT (21%) plus a handling fee of about $25.

If you add the (usual) extra charge for EU shipping, you routinely pay about double what an American backer would. For, say, a project in which the game is $40 and the extra for EU shipping is $10, you'd end up ponying up about $85.

For countries within the European Union, this can be avoided by having your games ship from within the EU. This way, they clear customs on the port of entry, and they don't have to pass customs again on their way to the final destination, as long as it's also within the EU. A typical arrangement is sending a bulk shipment of games to a German port, have somebody do the VAT paperwork for you, then hand the distribution to Amazon. Jamey Stegmaier, from Stonemaier Games, has a very nice writeup on the subject up on their website.

As most KS games still don't have this figured out, and as I can imagine that a lot of potential European backers are held up by the perspective of customs nightmares, I figured that it would be nice to have a list of KS (and similar) projects which will be sent from within the EU.



NOTE d10-1: Collaborations are welcome! I would like the list to be as complete as possible.

NOTE d10-2: To cater to the biggest possible audience, projects should be either in English, language independant, or at least have an English translation available. More languages are a plus, of course.

NOTE d10-3: The active projects are first on the list, and are sorted by end of the funding period (earliest first).

NOTE d10-4: Please only include projects which have explicitly confirmed they will ship from within the EU or which have stated they are actively looking for a way to do it. In the latter case, please put a clear notice in the item to let interested people know that it's still not definitive.

NOTE d10-5: This does not necessarily imply that shipping to Europe is 'free' - it's OK for the projects to charge a different cost for shipping to Europe, or for particular countries there. The operative criteria is no hidden customs costs - which means shipments from within the EU.

NOTE d10-6: You might also want to check the following resources:

Base game cost: 3-5€ + shipping (free DE, ~3€ rest of EU) + addons
Publisher: Spieleschmiede
URL: http://www.spiele-offensive.de/cf.php?projekt=29&language=en

Zep! is a microgame of zeppelin battles, part of the Little'N'Nice series of the Spieleschmiede - a pay-what-you-want microgame line, with the core game consisting of just a handful of cards as material; other needed materials are easily found in a gamer's household, or can be obtained as addons. In this case, the basic 3€ pledge (plus shipping) gets you the 9 cards which make up the game, the 5€ pledge adds a printed manual, and you can opt for a range of other materials, such as the needed dice, wooden cubes, etc - see the page for details. A full package with all optional materials (box to hold Zep and all other Tiny'N'Nice games, set of d6 dice, set of wooden cubes and a d20) is 21 €.

Plays 2-4 in 15-20 minutes, and the previous installment of the Tiny'N'Nice series, The Warriors of Well-ish, can be added as an addon for 5€.

Base game cost: 39 € + shipping (free DE, 2 € AT, 5 € rest of the EU except Liechtenstein 10 €)
Publisher: Kronberger Spiele
URL: https://www.spiele-offensive.de/Spieleschmiede/Nord/

Nord invites players to take on the role of a clan fighting for supremacy in the Viking homeland, the Lofoten Islands. To that end, they'll have to employ their workers, be it farmers, fishermen or warriors, to overcome the defenses of the Jarl (the current ruling class), gather important resources, establish short-lived alliances with other clans and keep an eye in other opportunities to obtain prestige.

Plays 2-4 in about 45-60 minutes. Some extras are available, including an expansion for 8 € and a sticker sheet to pimp up the 100+ wooden meeples in the game. The game will include both German and English text.

Papilio

Ends
: Nov 24
Delivery expected: Dec 2014
Base game cost: 12 € Spain (and Andorra) / 20 € elsewhere
Publisher: PllD
URL: http://www.verkami.com/projects/9941-papilio/

A card game which aims to educate people about the world of butterflies and biodiversity. Players try to build the best environment for butterflies, and score based on how well they did: how many butterflies they ended up having, on how well-adapted they are to the environment, whether they were able to attract them without catching them, and so on.

The game is mostly language independent, and English rules will be provided in the publisher's website. If enough patrons are interested, an English edition is not out of the question. (See BGG thread for details).

Plays 2-5.

Cost (base game): $74 (only game) / $93 (+1 expansion) / $103 (+2 expansions)
Publisher: Game Salute
URL: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/gamesalute/kings-forge-...

A KS project to fund production of two expansions to King's Forge, Apprentices and Queen's Jubilee (QJ was created by the backers of the original KF project), plus a second edition including a game board. King's Forge is a game in which players compete to gain the favor of the king as His Majesty's blacksmith of choice; Apprentices adds materials for a 5th player, Apprentice cards (which represent apprentices which give you specific bonuses) and extra craft items which need apprentices to be forged.

You can pledge for any combination of the expansions and the base game, with the exception that you can't pledge for Queen's Jubilee if you don't also pledge for Apprentices. Shipping is EU friendly. When compared to the USA cost, the shipping surcharge ranges from $10 if just ordering expansions to $29 for the base game or $33 for the whole shebang.

Base game cost: $40 "Western Europe" (perhaps including all of the EU) / $55 rest of world (see below)
Publisher: Jeff Siadek
URL: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1581450659/desert-islan...

A game about the life of castaways in a desert island, in which players have to explore the island, hunt for useful items, form temporary and unstable alliances, then merrily backstab each other. The game picks up where Lifeboat left off, and employs a streamlined and improved evolution of the previous installment of the series.

Plays 4-6 players in 1-2hrs. The base game cost is $30, and the shipping surcharge is $10 for "Western Europe" and $25 for the rest of the world. I'm not completely sure if "Western Europe" means "Amazon Western" or the whole of the EU, as there's some language in the Shipping section which seems to imply that the $10 shipping applies to the EU as a whole. There are also pledge levels which bundle the game with Lifeboat and its expansions.

A 28mm minis, skirmish game in which players control a small army in a post-zombie-apocalypse wasteland, and battle each other while fending the constant menace of the zombies - which will be attracted by the ruckus they create as they fight.

Plays 2 players (or so it seems from the project description). There's a dedicated international level, including the 2 available starter boxes and shipping for $175.

Base game cost: CAD $80, inc. $25 shipping
Publisher: Roxley Games
URL: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/66958057/steampunk-rall...

A boardgame which pits illustrious (and mad) inventors from history against one another in a frantic race of steampunk contraptions. Players draft cards to incorporate them into their machines, then push as fast as they can through the racing field. The game features a large amount of cards and a myriad possible combos, and the theme integration has been lauded by reviewers.

Plays 2-6 in 45 minutes. EU-friendly shipping is a rather serious CAD $25 extra. The game has garnered several accolades in 2014: it won the recent Ciudad de Granollers game design contest, and was finalist of the Canadian Game Design Award.

Base game cost: $45 just board / $80 boxed
Publisher: iello
URL: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/iello/world-of-yo-ho/

A novel gaming concept which turns smartphones into in-game pawns. Players must download a free app, available in iOS and Android, then place their phones on a board depicting a fantasy pirate world; phones represent the ships of each player, and, by moving them around, act as the players' avatars in a life of plunder and grog. There's also a mode of play which requires just a single phone or tablet (the app is needed nonetheless, as it takes care of all necessary calculation).

Plays 2 to 4 in 45-90 minutes, with English and French versions available. You can pledge just for the board ($35+$10 shipping) or for a boxed version with the board and several other tidbits and stretch goals ($60+$80 shipping).

Base game cost: £20 UK / £23 rest of EU
Publisher: TerrorBull Games
URL: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/146454088/the-hen-comma...

A humorous party game with a religious fowl theme, The Hen Commandments tasks players with defending the sacred word of The Holy Chicken above... even when they make mostly no sense. A random "commandment" is created by drawing sentence bits out of 6 decks, then players have to choose and defend which of the virtues of Heninism better embodies the commandment. The prophet which can best defend his choices wins!

Plays 3-6 players (more possible with more sets; 8p is a SG) in about 45 minutes. Shipping is free in the UK and £3 to the rest of the EU.

Plays 2-4 in about 20 minutes. There's a ~13 € surcharge when shipping outside Denmark. (Also note that the amount in the Kicktraq graphic should appear as Denmark crowns, not $, so the goal is not as outrageous as it may seem).

Publisher: Elegé Ibérica
URL: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/elege/soccer-city-the-b...

Soccer City is a card driven football/soccer game which simulates an actual match between two teams, down to strategic and tactical aspects - this includes overall team setup, offensive and defensive moves, the role of coaches and referees, and so on. The aesthetics of the game are inspired in the early 20th century matches. The goal (pun intended) of this KS project is to bring Soccer City to the world at large, after a successful Indiegogo campaign.

The game plays 2 or 4 players in 45-90 minutes. There's a cheaper ($56) pledge level which includes the previously produced first Spanish edition instead of the second, English edition and which is available for Spanish backers; stretch goals and the included KS-exclusive expansion, Legends Mode, will be in English.

The rulebook itself is $50, plus $5 shipping outside the UK, and there's also the option of getting the rulebook plus 2 starters (or 1 "mega-starter") for $150 plus $15 outside the UK. Of course, there are a lot of addons available.

Base game cost: $50 + $10 EU shipping
Publisher: MAGE Company
URL: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/magecompany/raid-and-tr...

A game of post-apocalyptic survival in which players strive to attain the coveted citizenship to one of the remaining Golden Cities by becoming useful to the city - by becoming experts in a field, by serving the city interests in secret missions, or by attaining notoriety as noble(wo)men.

Plays 3-5 players in 90 minutes. The shipping description is a bit confusing, but $10 are automatically added to the pledge for EU people, so I'd guess that it's $60 total and that no extra shipping will be collected after the campaign ends.

A miniature combat game in which players take command of a squad of one of 4 different factions in the game. The units are only strong when fighting as a squad - units which become separated from the group are weak. Furthermore, the leader of the squad (a special character/miniature) also influences the squad stats and abilities, and players can customize two decks of cards that they will have access to during the game: an armory, providing weapons and other equipment for their characters, and a deck of special actions which support their strategy.

The box set of the game includes a starter set for 2 factions and qualifies for all stretch goals. Different pledge levels and/or addons include starters for the 2 other factions, extra miniatures and scenery elements, to name a few. Shipping will be collected after project end and is estimated to run about $25 for the EU.

An expansion/sequel of sorts to oddball Aeronauts, a light, humorous and ultra-portable 2p game which can be played with no table - just hold the deck in your hand, and you're ready! oA2 adds two more factions, and can be played as a standalone game or be combined with oA1 to get more variety in matchups or play with more than two players.

Plays 2p in 15-20 minutes standalone, or can be combined with oddball 1 to play up to 4p games. The base game rules are not included, but can be downloaded from the publisher's website.

Publisher: Artipia Games
URL: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/241478362/lap-dance/

A tongue-in-cheek game about getting a chance to run a strip club for a night - and, if you sufficiently impress the owner, to become its manager. Players, as managers of the strip club, try to satisfy the desires of customers - be it sexy dances, drinks or other trinkets; the one that best caters to the audience will be chosen as the definitive manager (and overall winner). The game has two modes of play: one ("FUN mode") in which orders and other cards have the players do their share of zany antics, and another one which does away with the shenanigans and makes the game more "serious" and strategic.

Plays 2-4 in 30-45 minutes. Several other Artipia games are available as addons. It's not exactly a family game, but it contains no nudity, and both genders are represented.

A fast and somewhat minimalistic game of system infiltration, in which players compete to become the most proficient hacker by using a stash of gorgeous custom dice.

Plays 2-4 in 5-10 minutes. Shipping to the EU seems to be $10 all across the board, but thanks to the new KS system I can't tell for sure.

A family/casual card game about racing dragons with beautifully cute artwork. Creators state "We will do our best to ensure the game is shipped EU-friendly.", so nothing set in stone - I'm just getting it here to keep an eye on it.

Plays 2-4, or 2-8 with 2 copies.

Base game cost: 42 €
Publisher: Arctic Union
URL: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/509519175/black-hat-tri...

A trick-taking/board game hybrid with a hacking theme. Players, as "black hat" hackers, seek to infiltrate corporate networks, steal information, then sneak off before being detected. The status of the infiltration is tracked in a modular board, and with that comes a pretty unique catch - the relative worth of tricks for each player varies depending on the position of the board they occupy.

Plays 2-6 in about 45 minutes. EBs are available at 2€ off, as is a double package for 79 € and other packs. The game is language independant, with rules in languages other than English expected to be available online.

In the same day that the Rosetta spacecraft landed on the comet, MIND - The Fall of Paradise landed on kickstarter. What do they both have in common? Space exploration and most of all, the sign of ambition.

Vladimir Teneslav is the sole creator and designer and has been working on the boardgame for the past couple of years of his life, dedicating most of his time, passion and financial resources. Was his effort in vain? You be the judge.

MIND is an artificial intelligence that was created as a desperate measure by the population of Earth. It was the first time in history when an A.I was given executive authority over people and this created a counter force, called the Rebellion. But this battle was not the only one, as all 15 districts of Earth were at war one with the each other and this chaos was bringing Earth closer to its doom.

During the game, one player becomes MIND, and up to 3 other players take the roles of rebel leaders and each side wins the game by gaining a certain number of achievements, such as having enough colonies, citizens, etc before the enemy gains theirs. The rebels manage themselves and their party of followers, they equip items, interact with other citizens and operate different types of structure found inside colonies. MIND plays more of a strategy game where he develops researches, builds structures and machines and handles the world conflict, trying to delay the destruction of Earth as much as he can.

The game is scenario based and has room for limitless user created scenarios that make for fun and unique games. It also comes with lots of spaceship and structure miniatures, cards and tokens, making it a perfect choice for players that look for an immersive sci-fi experience.

If you like how this all sounds, please consider taking a look at the in depth video tutorials, the alpha rules and the preview from the Dice Tower, all presented on the kickstarter page. Come and become a citizen of Lyanon and help this ambitious project come to life in order to land on the store shelves.

The Game has free shipping within Europe, USA and Canada.
