So i was planning to buy some new board games (arena of planeswalkers+exp) and/or legendary encounters aliens


i found them on fair price, like 15$ per box for arena, and around 45 with +18 the expansion for aliens, and the shipping just ruins everything


it adds +40 to arena order and +60 to aliens one, so that's double the price..


i bought a game changers expansion(munchkin) recently and the shipping was fair (8$)

so i guess it has to do with how big the box is..?
that makes it prohibitive for me to buy some board games, (unless there are solutions that i dont know of) since arena of the planeswalkers cost 40 per box here in greece,where on amazon they are like 15 dollars each, and aliens is not found anywhere or costs 80 euros..

meh

anything i can do?

It really depends on where you buy it, I would say. If you are purchasing from America, you are probably getting crazy high shipping. If you order from Amazon.de/co.uk/.it/.fr, it's probably gonna be a lot cheaper.

Don't know if you can get the same games, but I'm pretty sure you'll save something.

What Robbert said!
Also, if you buy expensive games from outside the European Union (e.g. in the US), remember that you will have to pay import taxes/custom fees!

Find a used MTG:AotP for cheap and then have them toss the box and just ship you the parts.

Feel you :-( had to order Pandemic on another website than amazon because they can't deliver that one in my country, 7O euros shipping (living in South Pacific).

As others said if you can i would advise Amazon or maybe ebay? idk ship costs from it. Or maybe a trusted seller from that website that could ship it for the real price by postal way and not the abusive one from big shipping companies.
