I'm going to go ahead and put in a pre-order for this game, but I'm confused on shipping. Through the ordering process I never get a shipping quote, which I understand would be done when the game is ready to ship and my card is charged.

However - is there no way to get an estimate at least? For example I don't know how much price difference there is between USPS and UPS options, or if shipping will be what I consider reasonable.

Does anyone have any ideas, or if you've done a P500 before about how much were domestic shipping charges per game?

Thanks!

My P500 shipping charge (USPS) always used to be (circa 2012) between $10.50 and $11.50 for single items.

More recently, for No Retreat: The North African Front, it was $15. But that game was quite heavy and that may have had something to do with it.

But you live about half again as far from California as I do.

Mostly I remember that they always seem to pay more in shipping than I pay them to ship.

they have a chart that can give you an estimate depending on your shipping preference on the gmt site.

I was just charged $49 for my game, so my shipping to TX was $10. YMMV.

My receipt for the slow option to Australia has shipping of $19.00

Based on the chart mentioned above - you should be able to estimate your shipping using the 3 LBS row as it seems to fit the shipping cost also mentioned above for TX

Can you still order this at the P500 price or is it to late?

It's still listed at P500 price so I would think so.

Same here.

Makes the price over $50 so not as much of a saving, but still looking forward to playing the game.
