Does anyone know how to get Monikers in Australia?

I'm happy to try to organise a bulk order if that would help.

Cheers

Hello! The base game ships to Australia off amazon.com. Though not the .au site for weird arbitrary reasons, hence confusion.

We're also going to start selling copies directly on the Monikers site later this year, so you'll be able to get expansions shipped internationally then as well (<3 Blackbox)

Shoot for the moon. Even if you miss, you'll land among the stars, where you will be forced to drift aimlessly farther into the vast, empty abyss of space until a lack of food, water and oxygen causes you to succumb to Death's cold embrace.

Don't forget that this game is really just a parlour game that's been played for decades already. Make your own copy with some blank cards, it's utterly trivial.

I much prefer the production value which the guys have put into Monikers.

As with each 'revisited classic' the production company doing the revisiting provides their own voice and (from what I can tell looking online) the voice of the Monikers version is right up my alley.

This will communicate with my gaming group better than a Print and play (or reverting to simply playing the folk game)

For my next trick, I need to try to get the shipping down to a reasonable level.

Have you guys approached Miniature Market (in the states) or ozgameshop.com (aka games365.co.uk). Those guys get shipping to Australia right.

We're probably going to stay working with Amazon and Blackbox exclusively—though like I was saying, once we're selling directly off our website next month-ish, rates might be a bit lower (and the expansions will ship intl!)

For what it's worth, when I pre-ordered the McElroy expansion + base game shipping to New Zealand was only $14. (that's about what it cost to ship from the USA to Canada when I lived there so I'm not complaining). I assume that's about what you'd expect when the site goes live for shipping.
