has already started such a GeekList. You should probably use his, instead! - http://boardgamegeek.com/geeklist/156729/queensland-kickstar...

The Kickstarter campaign ends on 9 March (Sunday)!

Here's the link: http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1016374822/kingdom-build...

They will ship six copies to Australia for $90 USD each (so around $100 AUD each; maybe just a few dollars more to cover the bank's conversion fees).

I've already organised one group of six and I have a slot (or two) available for the second group!

The details:
- I'll collect payment from you via cash or bank transfer shortly after my credit card gets charged by Kickstarter (when their campaign finishes).
- When the game arrives, I'll let you know and you can pick it up from me at my house (Fitzgibbon), work (Brisbane CBD), or game group (Critical Mass at Chermside).

If you would like to obtain a copy at this Kickstarter's good price (especially since it includes a NEW mini-expansion and differently-shaped settlement pieces!), let me know as soon as possible.

As always: First in, best dressed!

The short version: You can get the new Donald X. Vaccarino game, Greed, for about $36 AUD, including shipping!

(And, hey, it's like 7 Wonders!)

The longer version:

Donald X. Vaccarino (DXV), designer of Dominion and Kingdom Builder and others, has a new game coming out called Greed. It's being published by Queen Games and they are, of course, running a Kickstarter campaign for it:

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1016374822/greed?ref=bg...

It's priced at $35 USD, but there's currently a second-level "early bird" for $27 USD. HOWEVER, the cost of shipping to Australia is $30(!), which obviously makes buying a single copy cost-prohibitive.

But if we do a group order, that shipping charge is spread out among all the copies. So I'm organizing an order for a six-pack.

If you choose to participate, your copy will cost $31 USD (plus 3% currency conversion fee charged by my bank; so, more like $32 USD). Obviously, you will pay in Australian Dollars (AUD), which should bring the total to about $36 AUD.

(Note that, in exchange for organizing this group order, I am having the participants pay my share of the shipping. That is, $1 USD of your amount is going toward my share of the shipping cost.)

As usual, I'll ask you to pay me via bank transfer when my credit card is charged at the end of the Kickstarter campaign. And, when the games arrive, you can collect them from me at my home (Fitzgibbon), work (Brisbane CBD) or the Critical Mass game group (Chermside Library).

If you're interested, please let me know as soon as possible. As always, first in, best dressed!

(By the way, I probably will not be at Critical Mass this Friday.)
