I would love to support your game more Alf but Eagles ridiculous refusal to enter the 21st century with shipping kills it for me. Last time I tried to take advantage of an Eagle sale they wanted to charge me $70 for shipping one game.

To give you a real life quote I just clicked your link and added Fantastiqa rucksack edition to my cart. Shipping is $40.05 for ground.

When I contacted them in the past I get a polite sorry but that is the way it is.

Just for perspective, I paid $20 to ship Mechs Vs Minions. Cthulhu Wars was $25.

I really love Fantastiqa and wanted to do a full review series on it ages ago but I couldn't afford the shipping on the expansions.

The website currently has free shipping at $50. I don't have a horse in this race, but between the sale and the free shipping I just purchased all 9 expansions.

Michael -- Shipping is free at $50 with this sale! All you need to do is order Fantastiqa at $25 and that much again in expansions and you will be over $50 and get free shipping. Please modify your response so you do not mislead others! Thanks -- Rick Soued, for Eagle-Gryphon Games

Not for him, according to your website, which says:

Free Shipping on All Orders Over $50 in the Contiguous United States.

thanks Alf. I've been looking for the FANTASTIQA: Event Deck (Fantastiqa Expansion #3) for a long time!! Get to complete my collection now!

Also picked up some other nice things at the sale. My shipping was only $7, including metal coins. Shipping reasonable for me.

Thanks again!

I tried again, no free shipping option is available. If you can tell me how to make it work, I have about $100 worth of items I wanted to order.

Hey Michael -- You neglected to tell me/us that you are in Alaska. Our logistics manager has taken this into account and has written this note to you:

Hello Michael,

I apologize for the confusion, Alaska and Hawaii are not included in our free shipping. Shipping to Alaska is far more expensive than shipping in the lower 48 states. The quote you are given by the system is a live quote which reflects what we pay in shipping cost.

For example, a 10 lb. package to Alaska is almost $40 (USPS) while a 10 lb. package to California is about $12 (UPS). This is a huge difference, especially when you consider the sale prices already in place.

I will be happy to work with you to get you all of the items you want. Since the Fantastiqa items are small we may be able to split the shipment into two smaller flat rate boxes to save on your shipping costs.

Please email me with your order and address. I will figure out the cheapest way to send you these games. Brandons@eagle-gryphon.com

Thanks - Brandon

Bought a couple of these while they were on sale for Black Friday, picked up the rest now that they're all on sale. My Fantastiqa is complete!!! Thanks for the heads-up, Alf. Would have missed it otherwise.

Hey, thank you all for your kind replies! I'm happy so many of you are able to get a few more (or all!) Fantastiqa expansions this way.

As for the Alaska shipping question, I've inquired of EGG and am looking forward to hearing back from them.

It looks like our reply about free shipping to Alaska was mixed up in the quoted text. I have copied it below.

Well this is slightly embarrassing, I didn't realize you replied in the quoted text!

My eyes usually skim over quote text!

Thanks Alf for bringing it to my attention

I will send an email this weekend with stuff I am interested in and hopefully a flat rate USPS shipping box works perfectly fine. If you want to start checking the price for expansions #1, #3 and #7 for Fantastiqa? Thanks in advance!
