Anyone in the USA trying to obtain a copy of this game will know the pain and complete lack of availability due to some snafu with the distributor. Someone posted that the French version of this game can be shipped via a Canadian website. Others have chimed in saying that the German version is available through Amazon.de.

Having said that, I am happy to report that I just received my copy direct from Germany's Amazon.de. Shipping charges was just 7.95 Euros ($11 USD) and it arrived in just 1 week. The outside packaging was in tatters, but the game inside was fully intact. Awesome.

Game is almost completely language independent. In the advanced rules, there are cards with some writing on them, but there are adequate graphics to indicate their meaning. Also the English rulebook explains each function.

Just an FYI, if you are looking for a copy.

It's also available from boardgamebliss.com located in Canada, and they ship to the US.

Some of the comments I've read about purchases from Amazon.de stated delivery time could be very long, despite delivery estimates. This has been my experience. I ordered it in March, it was shipped the 22nd, still not here. I ordered Luna about 2 weeks later, and it arrived in a week. I did send a message to them about Palaces, and they are sending out another copy immediately. Great customer service, but I've no idea the reason for lengthy deliveries to the states on some of these.

*Update 4/19: Got the original order in today, safely. So they came through after all, just slowly. I'll be sending the new copy back. Others should be aware of possible delivery delays, but should have no worries ordering with Amazon.de.

I believe that Time Well Spent Games will be stocking the German edition of this game in May.

Any more updates on shipping this game in to the US?

This game is not being shipped to USA. You can either order direct from Germany, or from a retailer in USA who imports it.

My last two purchases of it (7/19/2015 and 8/9/2015), having them delivered to California, were $51.51 and $50.29 US Dollar final prices to my door, respectively. Be aware that the listed price in Euros includes a German tax that is removed before final purchase when being shipped out of the country. I saw the game going for between $28 and $32 US Dollars, then shipping was added. Hope this helps.

Problem is now amazon shows 1-2 months to ship. What's up with that?
