We’ve come together before. Anyone interested in 18xx the card game?

I can only check-in evenings. Looks like any number >1 saves shipping.

/KS link can be found with minimal-google-fu

I'm on the fence, leaning towards not kicking this one. I'll stay tuned and try to talk myself into it.

I'm also on the fence, but I'll be watching this thread as motivation to grab a copy.

It appears Lonny wants to find cheaper shipping. I think a group buy still might be of value.

I fell off the fence and landed on a lillipudlian soccer stadium, killing thousands. I agreed to buy a copy as part of the settlement.

$42 with three? Is purdy cheap!

update #5 has shipping cost of 11 euros for one, $17 for two. so you end up saving less than $4 by teaming up, which is, to me, not worth the extra hassle. that said, i don't know if it gets a lot cheaper if you add copies...

Fair enough, looks like about $8 saved if we had 6. It feels like for 18CZ the savings were much more substantial, but no doubt the package was much heavier.

It appears local mail will absorb any group savings.

Do I see agreement we are ordering individually?

For sure...

Wish I could track the group down for 18xx. My chances to play are 1-2 a year at conventions.

That is a serious drive for some 18xx. But drop me a line if you are around and we will work something out.

I had the worst vacation of my life in your neck of the woods, at Point Lookout Park, a few years ago.
