Wouldn't it be nice if a company in N. America could produce this game, e.g print & play or any other similar indie game company, through a deal with the designer?

I am sure there are many people who are reluctant to order for now shipping cost is too high.

Thanks for your interest! But do you really find 9.95€ too much for shipping worldwide from Europe?

I had heard complains from local buyers (Spain and neighbors), that have to pay the same shipping plus 21% VAT for a game produced close by, but I had always thought that the real deal was for far away customers (USA, Japan...), that in fact I think are the most frequent buyers.

Also take into account that the less than 10€ are per order, so having several games shipped from across the ocean for that price is cheap in my book (I mean, when I buy games from the US I pay shipping way much more than that).

And finally, it includes implicitly also the business model, since nestorgames keep alive a catalog of many small games because they print on demand, something very few people do nowadays (or at least for such a small additional cost). So I doubt any other company in the US could produce Tetrarchia (or any other game in their catalog) for a significantly smaller overall price.

My suggestion: if you find 10€ too much, then try to order several games by browsing over their catalog, or find other users in your area that would like a copy of Tetrarchia as well. That's what I do myself!

Indeed a flat fee of 10 EUR for shipping, no matter how many games you buy, seems like a good deal to me. You can probably find some other games you'd enjoy. I always buy several games in an order.

The others have said as much, but I'll add that 11 US dollars is not much higher than typical American based small publishers' shipping costs for a single game and lower than most US based publishers' fees for shipping multiple games.

Shipping price is reasonable. Also I have enjoyed every game I have purchased for this company

Thanks!

And note that in the present gaming landscape dominated by KS one-shot projects and publishers that must renew catalogs endlessly and push recent games to out-of-stock, nestorgames beats them all with their always-available game catalog.

You will always be able to buy Tetrarchia!

Well, some games have been pulled out of the catalog in the past (Mole Hill, Battle For Olympus, Abeja Reina, Aztec Market, Mecca, Zyrcan).

Also I will eventually pass away some day.

Well, you're younger than me, so you shouldn't before I no longer care...
