How much did you have to pay in additional EU-taxes (customs) to import the game?

Why import it? It will be available from Esdevium Games (UK) soon for 37 pounds (55 euro).

In Germnay Boardgames are duty-free.
But the duty will charge sale tax (which is in germany 19%).

The game will be available at lautapelit.fi soon.
And Pro Ludo will publish the German edition in July.

So importing is not really an issue.

The European language versions from Pro Ludo have not yet gone into production. The soonest for these now looks,like September/ October. They may have English language in July.

It's actually not the duty that will hurt you, it's the VAT. From orders outside EU the customs will charge you the VAT + duty if they are (with shipping) together over 10 EUR. Depending on what you order the duty is maybe 3-5% (higher for example for clothes) but VAT is usually 22% (8% for books).

All of the above is off the top of my head but I should know since I'm a regular customer :-) Please check this (in Finnish):

for more details.

I pre-ordered AoE as well and I expect the duty+VAT to be for that order around 15 EUR.
