I await patiently for my copy, fingers crossed it doesn't get hit with too much import tax. I chose the slow boat option, but was wondering if anyone else have received their copy yet...?

I just received the notification to pick up the game in customs.

Unfortunately, my packages never arrive unnoticed by those diligent officials

Anyway, if the game is here in Prague I don't think that it will take much longer to get there.

I also got the slow option for Brazil and it is coming surprisingly fast: it was posted on November 2, and arrived in Brazil yesterday - and it seems to have already left the customs office.

So now I have an 1846 and a Stephenson's Rocket on their way to my city and I'm freaking out

Wow, that is incredible. From conversations with Breno K. in the past, I know your postal service is not known for the same pace that your sports car drivers are.

Hm. I should have thought of that. Smart idea to load 1846 on the back of a Stephenson's Rocket!

Well, its main problem is not being slow, but being too unpredictable. Most of the packages I got from CoolStuffInc or the late Boards&Bits (which I adored) arrived quite fast (once within a week!), but there was stuff from DealExtreme which took two or three months to arrive - sometimes when I had already forgot about it

The major inconvenience to me is having to go to the post office to pay the import taxes. Heck, it's 2016, couldn't we simply pay it online with a credit card and have the package delivered?

Me too! I'm sure there's nothing to be concerned about.

They're coming via Second Chance Games and avoiding all the Customs and VAT malarkey. Should be here next week (fingers crossed)

Mine just arrived! If it was Poseidon instead of 1846, I would say it was a 2-Ship to UK and an E-ship to Brazil

I got an email on Friday with a tracking number. My box has been "Exported from UK", so presumably I'll have it next week.

Thanks for the update!

I'll assume my copy will be delivered this week.

I heard from Second Chance a couple of days ago who were verifying my address, there being some doubt over it, so I hope to get it early in the coming week.

My copy of 1846 just arrived this morning via Second Chance Games, so no import duties. Yay!

Just got mine via Second Chance Games, fantastic, no extra VAT or import handling charges when it was delivered.

I'll definitely be getting a few more P500's now.

Mine just arrived - haven't even unshrinkwrapped it, although I did pop open the outer box to be sure it wasn't Conquest of Paradise.

Mine turned up about a week ago (I only just noticed this thread), but didn't come from second chance - so I ended up paying customs.

I see from this thread, that second chance aren't necessarily shipping all of them (although my p500 copy of Falling Sky came from them), so I'm fine with how it turned out this time, but I'm hoping it becomes easier to understand how to ensure your order comes via that route moving forwards, as I'd prefer not to have to pay the duty if possible.
