I just attempted to pre-order the new Kick Off! set and was hit with a message that it cannot be shipped to the USA because of restrictions regarding liquids and hazardous materials.

What gives?

EDIT: plus the exchange rate is WAY off.

Maybe the Brewers team comes with actual beer.

That's really weird. I'm willing to bet, however, that this game should end up at a lot of major online retailers.

To be correct "Cannot ship outside the UK".

Also encountered this problem and been in contact with Steam Forged Games. This was their reply;

"The reason for the shipping restriction is because of the cost of shipping internationally. The weight of Kick Off! means that it would have to be sent via courier which would greatly increase the cost. While we can ship it via international courier it would cost approximately £12.00 to do so. Given this expense we are encouraging our customer to purchase from their local store."


With current exchange rate buying it online + shipping would roughly equal out versus buying it in local retail store + shipping. But that is if I am able to find it at a decent price at all in The Netherlands.
