EU Shipping!

We are proud to announce that we will be doing shipping from within the EU for EU customers! We haven't finalized the details yet, but we know that many EU fans have been waiting for this news to back the project and we wanted to let people know as soon as possible!

Damn, now Minecart is too tempting. For now I just will raise the pledge a bit, and then we will see...

Yeah, I feel the same way.
I've pledged at Outlaw level, but with all the add-ons I really want I'm already at $335 (including shipping). I have a feeling I might actually upgrade to Minecart at some point...

If minecart was $400, I would totally pledge minecart.

I think most people would. $475 just bumps it out of the park for me.

This.

The worst part of $475 is the $75other credit. I don't want extra stuff, so let me in at $400!

Find someone you know who is interested in the game, but doesn't want to pledge or can't afford to pledge the 150 dollars or 475 dollars, and ask if they want to give you 75 dollars and you will use your credit to get them some of the mini sets that look nifty. That'd work, right?

Yeah, I'm not sure about pledging, but update your want and trade lists, and, if I don't end up pledging, I'll be happy to take a $75 base game off anyone's hands.

Not going to happen for the simple reason that $75 'estimated MRSP' is not the real value of $75. The add-ons are all massively over-priced. I'm not going to argue about that, if you don't think they are then you don't understand how Kickstarter pricing works (over-priced add-ons fund the 'free' stretch goals; basically, the big spending completionists pay for everyone else's discount).

For the same reason, they won't offer pre-existing games to 'spend' your credit on either, because those have a real dollar value and this game currently doesn't as it hasn't been made yet.

It's just lame that to get the Mine Cart items I have to pitch in at a price that gives me 'credit' to get... um... more Mine Card items. I just want the one set. I'll probably just get OutLaw and then the MineCart items that have boards.

This has probably been asked, but I assume that this means we no longer have to add $40 for shipping at Minecart level? Or is this just to avoid the Import VAT?

Just to avoid the import VAT. You still need to pay for shipping.

I don't think you know how FFP works There games are fun, the components are top notch, but none of their stuff is cheap shake

Great news! Just a quick question, as i'm relatively new to (and have been relatively lucky with) international Kickstarters: Does this mean that all i should expect to pay is the pledge amount, including shipping? (so for the Outlaw level that i'm pledged at, $175 (£150 + shipping)?

Basically are there any other "hidden costs" that might come from importing the game to the UK?

Thanks for educating the unenlightened

If they're shipping from within the EU you don't have to expect any hidden costs.

Never supported any physical kickstarters before, but I've been following this one with in hopeful curiousness. If that's the case I'll just might go with Outlaw level too.

I rather wait until they disclose the details before being excited
