Has anyone received their Kickstarter decks yet?

I arrived home today to a card from the Post Office that I had a parcel waiting (thumbsup) but that there was a £20.09 payment due (thumbsdown) for tax and handling. I'll be off to the Post Office first thing tomorrow to collect, but a bit of detective work from the USPS tracking number suggests it's my new decks (the point of origin matches Jim Trunzo's location via Facebook). I fully appreciate that Stewart Wieck's untimely passing caused a major perturbation in the fulfilment but my expectation was for the EU-friendly shipping that the original campaign offered...

I'll update tomorrow once I know definitely it's the decks.

UPDATE

It was, as I expected, the Kickstarter decks. Haven't yet had a chance to look through the cards, but at least I have everything I expected.

I've posted a comment on the KS page, but would be interested to know if others have had the same experience.

Ouch

Was that just for the new decks or did you get the base game too?

HMRC should be basing the calculation on the value on the Customs declaration - in my case it was $60 (for the card decks - even though the Kickstarter cost was only $55) plus $24 or so for shipping. If the package is only for the card decks it ought to be roughly the same value. IIRC the only other distinction was that the Post Office charged a premium (it was a few years ago but I think it was around £23) if the package shipped "express" (because if it's coming express you really must want it )

I'll be interested to know why it is so much.

And I thought I was hard done by. Someone goofed big time there...

I had an apology from Alan Bahr at Nocturnal Media after I raised the issue on KickStarter - I think they completely overlooked the EU-friendly shipping but that doesn't explain the value on yours.

Mine arrived two days ago (we´re talking Spain here). Base + decks (I believe. Any way to check if all the cards are there?).

Also stung by customs gulp shake (apart from the hassle, another 30€ on top of the 30 for shipping) Wasn´t it supossed to be EU Friendly? whistle cry
