Yedo is £18.99 at Boardgameguru at the moment. Postage is £5.75, but is flat rate, so if you're getting something else (Mythotopia for £16.49 would be my suggestion...) this is definitely worth adding in. Even if you don't, £24.74 is a pretty decent price anyway!

Did I read somewhere that BGGuru will hold orders so you can assemble a bigger package* to save on shipping? I know Milan-spiele and Spiel-Offensiv do this in Deutschland.

*Please, no "large package" jokes.

Thought the Pegasus Spiele version pictured is not language independent?

Likewise for Polis: Fight for the Hegemony PS version?

Two different product codes, both by pegasus spiele, 54560G (German) and 54560E (English).

Board Game Guru doesn't specify which one this is. I would HOPE that if it doesn't say then it's in English given its a UK website. Only way to be certain is to ask though.

It's a good point. There IS a Pegasus Englsih version (https://www.boardgamegeek.com/boardgameversion/176160/englis...) but that - I think - was the one that was long sold-out before the new edition.

Hopefully Paul bobs on here and notices the discussion at some point then, as both are on my radar.

That's not going to help with combined shipping from the guru for Yedo though is it.

If your previous order hasn't shipped, they will normally be able to just shop it along with the previous one, as it's flat rate shipping...

They did for me on last week's orders anyway!

No but it is going to help prevent people paying an extra £3.50. Saving money I would have thought was ultimately the goal. Here I'll spell it out for you:

Both bought separately (as I suggest): £37.73

Bought together (with combined shipping): £41.23


You're welcome.

...and that's great, but still doesn't combine the shipping. The article was for saving money buying Yedo, not just saving money. Your example just says buy Mythotopia elsewhere, there's absolutely no reason to buy it at the same time as Yedo.

People combining shipping may also want to support a FOGS (Friendly On-line Gaming Store?) rather than a video game website also.

SOOOO tempted by Yedo, but just don't think i can justify it given Lords of Waterdeep hasn't had enough plays yet.

But i can highly recommend mythotopia, however i'd favour the Limited edition if you can find it, the default tokens for armies and towns aren't particularly clear at a glance (and frustratingly only have printing on one side).

Going to google how to pimp out mythotopia.....

I would suggest for people who enjoy 2 player games to take a look at a great deal Polis for £19.99 http://www.boardgameguru.co.uk/polis--fight-for-the-hegemony.... It is an excellent game that is highly underrated.

Are you for real? The reason for combining shipping is to save money. My suggestion saves money. Period.

In which case why aren't you calling people out for suggesting buying something else?

negatrev wrote:

In which case, I suspect most reasonably rational people would simply not buy it and just buy Yedo.

They are entitled to do so. I personally like to save money and my suggestions help people do it.

That's now the crux of this thread though Christina, as I want both Polis and Yedo, but the versions shown aren't the English versions.

I have not realized that the games are not in English. I just ordered Yedo. I sent an email to cancel my order. I hope that it's going to be canceled.

It's not 100% certain the games are not in English. There is an eggert/pegasus English edition* as well as a German (only) edition. BGGuru normally makes it quite clear when games are NOT in English.

*the English first edition

Excellent game indeed - and a fantastic bargain. Not underrated if you know where to look mind. If you check the AVERAGE rating it's in the top 50 of all games that have at least 1000 votes. (That's how I found it 2 years ago - the BGG rating tries desperately to hide these newer gems from us!)

An email or phone call to the retailer usually answers the question - thanks to Cristina for the email. The pictures are misleading and need to be changed (I used to import the foreign language editions). Polis and Yedo i n the specials are both English language editions.

I do sell imported non Englsih langauge editions and they will be clearly described as not English in the description. Back to packing Yedos and Polis
