Theres a lot of folks who want TTR: Nordic Countries.

Since online retailers in Scanadanvia are selling it, and shipping to the US is high, does anyone want to put together a group of 5 or so of us that want to order the game and save on shipping?

We could have the order shipped to a central address in the US and someone do the US shipping to each one of us from there . . .

If interested,let me know.

PT

PS - As luck would have it, there is an exchange student living next door to me who is from Norway . . .

I'd be vaguely interested, have to see how many souls we wrangle up, and what the price would actually work out to.

I'd be interested, and wouldn't care if it took the slow boat, either --I've got more than enough games to keep me busy, but this would look cool sitting next to the other TtR stuff.

I'm in the same boat. Would like to see the cost of the game, share of the shipping to the US, and the final shipping to me before commiting any furher than a tepid maybe.

If you could price out say 10 copies with numbers - you might get a firmer commitment from folks, you would from me.

I might be interested, too, depending on how much it runs.

Hmm, I'm bored so might as well do some searching/calculating...

Lautapelit has this for 42€ -> 60.5$ (prizey)
I looked into Itellas shipping rates and it seems that with enough (>5) orders one could expect shipping cost with economy to be around ~10€ (It might be less, I don't have clear idea how much this game weights...)

So.. it might be around 75$ per game. So with slow boat it just might be affordable..

For reference, Itellas shipping rates..

North America is region 5.

I would also be interested in this, but would like firm numbers before commiting.

Jim

EDIT: Preferrably for the English version, of course!

I could be interested, but I'd like a firm number as well. I'm only willing to fork over so much for this.

I'm interested. Anything less than $100 would be doable for me.

Anyone heard of any of the usual suspects importing this?

I am also interested assuming that the price stays under $100 and another cheaper source doesn't show up
in the meantime.

I'd say that is definately not guarantee-able. To me, this is one of those risks that you take, because there is no way of knowing if or when a better deal may show up.

You have a cost for the incoming duty taxes and US custom fees??

There is no English version; that's the bloody point.

There shouldn't be any incoming taxes or fees; I import medium to large amounts of games and music on a regular basis, and I've never been tagged for either.

For that you'll have to contact the retailers selling the game. Rough estimates (for the shipping) is pretty much the best I can give.

I guess that you'll be able to get the game cheapest from Denmark or Sweden.

If there isn't an English version, why are there two covers?





Apologies if this has been covered here, but if it has, I don't remember seeing it.

I haven't seen the game, actually. But it is my understanding that only Finnish version has translated box. Denmark, Norway and Sweden have English box cover, but all other components (including rules) are in Swedish/Norwegian/Danish. Someone correct me if I'm wrong.

edit: deleted the pictures...

I saw a picture of the back of the so-called 'English' box, and the text on the back is in Danish, Swedish and Norwegian, no English at all. The title is the only English thing about that edition, it seems.

I understand that there is no US release! Perhaps that was more the "point" of this thread than whether or not there was an English version. There was talk here ( http://www.boardgamegeek.com/thread/204200/page/2 ) by people native to the release zone in defense of an English language edition - still exclusive to Scandinavia - intensified by the English box cover. Perhaps my post should have read: "I want an English version (even if that only means that only the box top is in English)." Better?

Hey gang -

I started this thread, and since then I found a great deal - TTR Nordic Countries for about $75 - shipped overseas by USPS.

Check out the BGG Marketplace and user robirobb for more information . . .

Of course there is no quarantee, that is why I wrote "in the meantime". If no better source appears before this order is ready, then I'm in for a copy. If a better source happens before this order, then I'll take the other source. That's all.
