Hi there,

Has anyone in Europe received the game? In my account list in GMT website says "Shipping - Not syet shipped", but in the last GMT Update they say that all the games where shipped...

I know that many people in USA have the game, but has any european folk received it?

I think I read they would start shipping out the games to European customers at the end of last week.

Is your copy coming direct to you or via Secondchance games?

This was also discussed in another thread here: https://www.boardgamegeek.com/thread/1788959/any-sightings

I'm still waiting for my copy to appear at my doorstep but it's nice to know that first copies are already in Europe.

I think the Euro friendly shipping option is via Secondchance acting as a fulfilment centre - so will need to reach them first (possibly by sea(?)) before being sent on by 2ndchance.

Well you did get cheaper shipping, have already paid VAT and don't run the risk of paying any handling charges.

I had sent an email to GMT a few days ago because my account said shipping, but there wasn't any other information--I had ordered UPS, so I thought there would be tracking info. The game arrived two days ago. GMT sent a reply saying that they don't update accounts regularly.

Nothing here in UK yet. From previous experience, I think it should be a matter of days.

P500 Update.

Next lot is arriving with us soon. Time of Crisis and Next War Supp 1.

We have the list already so it will be going straight out after we process the items in our shop after it arrives. Not long now!. If you have not already got it at P500 price please consider purchasing via ourselves.

Anyway as for pricing games its very hard there is a lot of factors the discount you as a retailer receive from the game producer, import costs, VAT and your overheads. As a business that has to charge VAT this pushes our costs up so it is harder to discount. We do generally discount more for pre-orders prior to release by 10%. Some of the prices of some games I have seen would make a store a very tiny profit so may sell on volume I don't know, I can only work on our costs and know it would not be in our interests as a small but well known vendor to sell at a possible loss or tiny profit we wouldn't be here after over 34 years.

Many thanks

update: went to the postal office, the custom worker didnt want to give me the game because she said that she doesnt know anything about this prepaid VAT policy. I refused to pay the VAT again.So, my game is still there. Wrote to Second Chance Games, Mark replied they didnt receive any P500 games recently so there could have been a mistake so my game was sent directly to Romania. Waiting for a reply from GMT, I hope to solve this situation soon and get my game without paying VAT again. Did any of you also receive the game and had similar problem?

LE: it seems that the shipping method was not changed to Euro friendly so my game arrived directly to Romania. Yep, that s it. Good luck guys!
