To all of you who've been asking how to preorder Leaving Earth outside the US and Canada, thank you.

Unfortunately, none of the distributors we've been talking with have panned out. Their fees are just too high (and the paperwork too dense) for this size of shipment. If we were shipping thousands of copies at a time, these sorts of distributors would make more sense. As it is, we have to go a different route.

How We'll Be Shipping
Shortly, Lumenaris will be opening up direct ordering for specific countries. These orders will be shipped directly to you from our manufacturing site in California. This means they'll be shipped via the US post office, which appears to have the best prices for shipping individual games internationally.

When You Can Order
Over the next few days, you'll be able to place preorders on Lumenaris' website, as your country gets added to the system. I'll post in this thread as soon as I have confirmation that a particular country is open for ordering.

What You Can Order
If you order Leaving Earth before September 4th from outside the US and Canada, it will come with the Mercury mini-expansion. A few people have asked if they could order other Lumenaris games as well -- the answer is yes.

What to Do Next
Subscribe to this thread if you're interested in preordering from outside the US and Canada. This is where I'll be posting the most up-to-date information.

Can we order multiple copies and distribute them locally to interested people? Would this diminish the costs for each copy?

Josh is absolutely right.

I think this will avoid for many of us the obscene import fees (few weeks ago, a friend from USA sent me as a gift a copy of Dead of Winter, and I had to pay 20€ to get it). I know that some USA publishers do that already.

It'd be much appreciated.

Thank you,

D.

It certainly will in the UK where we have an "interesting" system for collecting customs fees. Shipping will probably work better that way too.

For the UK, I've just posted Preorders to the UK..

+1 for Belgium/Netherlands/Benelux-group.
(I live in Belgium, but work in The Netherlands)

Or how about an Essen-pickup?
Can that be arranged, Joe?

That's correct -- we don't have anyone carrying Leaving Earth at Essen yet.

As far as ordering multiple copies for local distribution, that should be no problem.

Maybe I should clarify: my question aimed at the shipping costs when ordering multiple copies. I hope that total shipping costs over the pond will lessen with increasing number of ordered copies; can you validate that?
