Books don't normally have tax, so it would reduce some costs...

And as Riot has repeatedly stated, the $75 version of the game provides you with a physical copy of the rule book and all the files needed for you to print out the rest of the game using a 3D printer. cool

I ordered a mouse mat from them at the same time, on my tracking for the mouse mat it says the package is 0.4kg, and on the tracking for mechs vs minions it says 0.1kg.

So I think we can all safely assume that this game will definitely weigh about ¼ of one mouse mat. Remarkable they got the miniatures so light.

I have a little experience with this with my workplace.

We've got some items that are pretty big and pretty light. So in that case, the shipper uses what is called "Dimensional Weight" to determine the shipping cost. Basically, they figure out how much space it'll take on the truck or plane and charge based on that.

This box is a big box for a game and I'll bet they based the shipping on the dimensions of the box instead of the weight.

Does that make sense?

Suh-weeet! So when my wife calls me overweight, I can say my "dimensional weight" makes me only 50 lbs!

0.10kg here as well. But the dimensional weight explanation makes sense.

I'm just jealous of you guys getting tracking. I ordered within four hours of opening and I'm within two hours of the fulfillment warehouse in WI, no tracking yet.

Just got my email and the weight shows as 15.5 lbs for mine on the UPS site. Maybe someone fixed it.
