So I get there is a heap of extra plastic added to this via Stretch Goals, but I was not expecting $60 US for shipping. The actual pledge is only $100.

I hope this is a great game.

The problem is that the backerkit being used seems unable to resolve your postcode to calculate shipping and instead uses the City field as a Rural/Urban or whatever thing. Where if it doesn't see one of the major cities in your country being listed under City it automatically charges you for rural shipping rates. Something which Amazon/Ebay/any other online storefront seems to have solved a long time ago.

So you need to input your address with suburb in Address Line 2 (rather than City), put your city in for City, and everything else as per normal. This changes Rise of Moloch shipping costs to my suburb (which is less than 5km from the centre of Perth) from $108 to a more reasonable $61.97 for an all-in pledge. Which is a lot (I'd say $20 too much), but not unreasonable.


Well thanks for this. Doing it this way changed my shipping from $60us to $40 US.

How much are you backing for/where do you live in the states? I'm in PA and for the game, the expansion, and the mat it was only $14 for shipping.

24.8 dollar for me. The arcadia quest inferno pledge was double the cost so this is for me acceptable

$48 to Japan for a $180 pledge, which is consistent with purchasing from my usual source.

I was about to complain about shipping costs to New Zealand, but I'm pretty happy now... $97 USD is horrendous.
