Just curious, when you win a BGG contest, are you expected to pay for shipping?
I cannot speak for all, but when it comes to CMON, you win the game, but you do not win it being delivered to you. I was lucky enough to win both Rivet Wars and Zombicide Season 3. When I got my pledge manager access the first time I remember being surprised about the need to pay for shipping, especially since the need was never mentioned during the contest. In the end I paid for shipping and then for anything else I wanted to add on. I really can't complain about how shipping was handled, I was just surprised.
