This is probably premature for an accurate value but what would the estimated shipping weight of the game with all the plastic goodies be? I need a rough idea in order to decide what my best, a.k.a. cheapest shipping option would be.

Didn't know we had a choice what shipping is concerned?
Or do you let the game be delivered at a friend's house in the USA and let him forward it to you?

With zero good information I'm going to guess 2.5kg - 5kg.

On the topic - did you pledge for shipping? I understood that the cost for shipping will be clarified at the end of the campaign...

I have the options of using Aramex Global Shopper, i.e. ship to them in US and they deliver to SA or ship direct from Cmon, i.e. postal service. Depending on package weight Aramex can be subtantially more expensive than postal service. They do however deliver faster and more secure but the premium price is sometimes not quite worth it...

Just planning ahead for when the pledge manager comes around with the shipping charge...

The KS page (shipping section) assumes a "standard game package (4kg volumetric weight)". It then goes on to say that that estimate "may rise based on weight increases from unlocked stretch goals and any optional buys".

I'd say the final number will fall into the 5-8kg range.
