Simple as that. I'm really interested in getting this beauty, but the shipping fees to Spain are HUGE ($58), so I was hoping for a new KS, since this project was EU friendly (and maybe a components upgrade? It seems that's the only criticism to this game). I can't neither find any retailer in EU selling it. It's up to the retailers or the producers to make it possible?

That might be my fault :/. i recently bought what i believe was the last copy from the UK via the BGG market.

@Sean+Eric: i'd also be interested in a 2nd KS for the upcoming content which Eric has hinted at in other threads. The current Goblinko shipping model (postage measured by product price, rather than weight) makes it infeasible to order even the tiny world books from outside the US.

The thing is, I can buy 6 copies and the shipping costs woukd be thr same $58, which I don't understand. Anyway, i'm looking for other spaniards interested in buying together and split costs, just in case that's the only way to get it!

Be careful when doing so - you might get stuck paying VAT import taxes, which adds another 20% (or so) to the cost. i haven't had that happen to me in a long time, but i also haven't ordered anything valued more than $100 from the States in more than 10 years. The DD KS fulfillment was done via a company in the UK, which allowed us to avoid import taxes, but Goblinko has since stopped using that company, and now does the fulfillment themselves (from the States).

This page is from Holland (but in English) and may be helpful:

https://www.belastingdienst.nl/wps/wcm/connect/bldcontenten/...

i am not sure whether these rules differ in each EU country, but i suspect that they are defined by the EU.

Here's one in Spain, but the site layout seems to be completely broken:

Edit: another one in Spain:

Regarding the quality of the components, I'd say that that the card stock is OK, not too far from other companies such as FFG. Now, the counter's sheets really annoyed me. They weren't punched all the way through, so I had to use a scalpel several times to avoid the counters to get damaged. Even after doing that, there are some that still got damaged anyway.

On the other hand, the game is FANTASTIC! I'm having a lot of fun playing the campaign.
Also, I bought all the booklets that describe each one of the regions and they are all worth it. I'm really enjoying getting to know all the lore of that fantastic world.

This game is built for expansion modules!

New characters
New enemies
New lands to explore
New missions and storylines.

I think Sean would find an expansion KS very successful.
As a pledge level, I'm sure the Core game could be offered.

Bring it!

We're going to switch our shipping model to weight based ASAP - it has been on my to-do list for a month - but I've been swamped with other things. For instance - my mom died. Anyhow - that's the plan. Expansion material - we've got two expansions in concrete - the next character pack is coming up & then we're going to be doing a cards expansion. I don't think we're doing a kickstarter for either of those. Also - we were not pleased with our EU friendly fulfillment service via Gamesquest UK - they have horrendous customer service which has created absurd delays for our backers which are inexcusable. If you foreign devils have a EU friendly fulfillment service you'd recommend that you've used multiple times & have had good, prompt customer service - please recommend.

Sorry to hear about your mom, Sean. I think that for the characters and card expansions, you guys are right to not do it through a Kickstarter. But, for anything bigger than that, I think a KS would be great for you guys. The visibility you guys would have this time around via word of mouth would be HUGE.

I'm sorry for your loss.

If you'll just send it all to me, i'll make absolutely certain that it gets exactly where it needs to go laugh.

Traditional Confucian teaching has children mourn for three years after the death of a parent, mirroring the first three years that a child is completely dependent on that parent. If you need to take some time off, by all means.

Three years of mourning! Aye caramba! Thanks for your condolences - public emotional anything isn't really my style - but I've been working on being more open. Anyhow - I realized also immediately that we are indeed running another kickstarter soon. The next BIG project from GOBLINKO is the TAROT GOBLINKO. Illustrated by me - with a stretch goal of having Eric incorporate using the tarot in Dungeon Degenerates with an accompanying rulebook/rules. We will most likely be pulling the trigger on this in early March! Ha ha. Let's see if I have a jpeg of one of them.

So - that's a kickstarter happening again soon!

You might want to check Happy Shops (http://www.happyshops.com/index.php?cmd=fulfillment&fulfillm...). I received a couple of KS through them and it was a positive experience. There was a tiny issue with one of the games I received, and by the time I went to the KS page to report it they had already talked to the game designer and agreed on a solution.
