Anyone interested in doing a group buy to save on shipping to the UK?

At the moment it's not EU-friendly shipping, which means we'd get stung on customs charges, so I'm not necessarily going to pledge. But it looks like a cool game and I'd hate to miss out on the KS exclusives.

So, as I say, I may or may not pledge, but anyone interested in a UK group buy can post below to try and find buddies.

(The international bundle is a $145 pledge + $60 shipping for three games which works out at $65 per game.)

The game looks interesting, and I like the art, but there is no reason they can't make the shipping EU friendly - it just requires being willing to do one bulk shipment for European orders into a fulfilment partner within the EU. This reduces shipping costs to the customer, reduces the amount of shipping the publisher has to eat and removes the possibility of VAT and handling.

As it is, your costs above will probably need to add 20% + another £10-12 handling and then on-shipping to elsewhere in the UK.

With EU friendly shipping I would pledge directly.

If it wasn't 2 player only I would jump at it, but I have got too many good ones sitting unplayed to add another to my shelf.

I really like the look of this game but: the UK postage is v high, and having so many expansion you have to buy straight away (aka the $100 pledge) makes this 'short' 2 player game ridiculously expensive :|

Possibly interested. Not decided yet but thought I'd throw my name into the hat.
