I tried to search for the game and asked threee different sellers here at BGG for a postage price to Denmark and got three different prices - £15, £20 and £25 !!!
They were all from England, but why the difference in postage price???

Hello!

I don't know the reason, but The game weighs heavily (2.5 KG) and maybe someone of them is using another form of shipment than the usual ROYAL MAIL or is using ROYAL MAIL but SIGNED FOR DELIVERY ...

Anyway the differences between the prices are great ... I agree with you!

Great game, worth the money for sure.

Roberto

Have you tried sellers from Germany? Spieltraum.de for instance should have it in stock in September - this would be add up to 65 Euros, though, too (50,- game / 15,- shipping) - almost 500 Dkr.

Found the game on ebay and here postage is only £5.00 £7.00 to Denmark!!!! Total £49.00 (460,00 Dkr) surprise

I always try to ship as cheap as possible, even paid half the price myself, just to sell some items, but if people want to earn more money by raising the postage price 50, 100 or even 150% that is INSANE!!! shake

So I just bought it on eBay!!!

I'm glad you're getting the game, Rene'. It's great. I've noticed the trend many times, particularly on ebay, of widely differing shipping costs, & it's very clear that some sellers are just trying to gouge extra money out of the buyer, since there's no way it could cost so much to ship. Thunder Alley is indeed a heaver than normal game, so I wouldn't be surprised if it costs a bit more to ship.
