So if you haven't heard, Fantasy Flight is having a great sale on some of their games (as well as other Asmodee titles).

https://boardgamegeek.com/thread/1673485/fantasy-flight-game...

Unfortunately shipping kills the deal. Thus I'm wondering if anyone in the Vancouver area would be interested in a group buy? To be honest this doesn't lower the cost of shipping all that much - but it helps.

Let me know if you're interested. I'm headed down to the States for Thanksgiving, so we can ship the order there and I can pick it up.

I'd be interested in Battlelore (2nd ed) if there was a large enough group buy.

If there's enough people for a group buy, I would be interested in picking up Amerigo.

I put together a large order earlier and looked at shipping it to sumas vs straight to me and there was only a $10 difference there even. Still, there are some good deals.

I would also be interested in Battlelore 2nd Ed.

Does the shipping cost get lower as the amount of games gets larger?

Thanks for the responses. I've crunched the numbers and they're still not great, only slightly better. You can view a spreadsheet breakdown here:

https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1wsUM3WcC47ObKzdlcmy7...

Unfortunately Relic is sold out, but I put the Mythos book in there.

Basically I just looked up all the weights (as listed on the the Fantasy Flight page), summed the total weight and divided the shipping cost accordingly. Somehow the shipping cost is actually lower to Canada than it is to the States, so that's the number I've put into the spreadsheet at the moment. Also apparently if we ship to Canada there is no tax charged - at least, I've gone all the way to the checkout page and it doesn't show up.

Bear in mind that this is in USD. Oh, and feel free to double check the work. Math has never been my strong suit.

Is it too late to add in a copy of Shogun and Lewis and Clark please?

I didn't see Planet steam on the list. I think thats for the best though, I don't think I'm interested in it enough.

I'm happy with that, if it's even close to the spreadsheet. Beats the $26 US shipping alone.

Thanks for organizing this, and let me know what you decide for payment. Do you think there's a chance at a turnaround in time for the no-ship trade on the 27th?

Maybe Terror and Meeple City and maybe Jamaica.

Do you have an estimate of how much shipping would be? When do you want to get the order in?

Didn't see the spreadsheet post while I was researching


UGH never mind I must have discipline and not spend any money. Thanks anyway.

Sorry, apparently I left out Planet Steam and Amerigo. I've added Amerigo but left off Planet Steam (per your request). I've also added Shogun and Lewis and Clark.

Please confirm your order as soon as you can, no later than Saturday (Nov. 19), whether through this thread of just sending me a message. I hope to purchase soon. If you don't confirm with me, I'll assume that you're no longer interested.

Unfortunately I highly doubt it'll make the trade... I find postage between US/CA to be horrible - takes over a week to send a letter. This will be further exasperated by the Thanksgiving holiday in the States next week.

For an estimate on shipping... Right now, about 10 cents per ounce - a little more (look up the weight on the FF page, that's what I'm using). Might increase a bit if people drop out, or decrease if more people add in.

Just saw the following note on Meeplemarts Facebook page:

We have received confirmation that Meeplemart will be taking part in the FFG/ Asmodee Holiday Sale. More info will be provided when available.


Might be worth holding off as shipping from Meeplemart would be a lot cheaper maybe?
