Time has come to invest in another set of this game, and unlike the first order done directly at GMT this one had to be on the open market (CC:E is OOP atm)

We ended up ordering CC:E + CC:M + Paratroopers. Total sum 123$ +shiping to Norway 56$. I didnt manage to find any better offers (where you could buy all 3 at once).

Anyone know of any places in europe that sell it for less?
So if the package doesnt get stopped on the border for some taxation it will cost us 179$ / 128 Euro / 1010 NOK. Buying CC:E from the only company that got it in Norway costs 899NOK (+shipment).

Hi Lorentz,

www.cosimshop.de has CC:E for 75€, Paratroopers for 17,5€ and CC:M for 67,5€.
So, unless you get stucked at customs, it's not really cheaper...

Note that cosimshop.de only ship to EU countries, which Norway isn't (I admit I had to look that up myself). But it's true that European online shops will only be significantly cheaper if you have to pay custom duties on orders from the US. How likely that is in Norway, I have no idea.

If you have patience, it is very likely GMT will reprint CC:E, I doubt that will be P500 though...

Try contacting www.worldofboardgames.com. They sell the game for 599 SEK. which is 505 NOK or 63 €.

I think they will ship to norway if you contact them and ask. Great shop with great customer service.

So I thought to my self "if he's near Trondheim or Mo i Rana I'll offer to bring a copy the next time I'm over there" but then I checked the flag to find out you're in a part of Norway I've not heard of before: Nebraska. Oh, well.

Just got the CC:E, M and Para today. Had to pay 25%VAT but no import taxes. So total price ended up at 225$ or 1250NOK. So it seams importing from the US is the best offer for Norway. Btw it did take less than a week for the package

Well, Norways hell arrrh

But I usually go looking for some ebayshops. I reckon the effort spent and the energi lost on trying to do a cheaper deal usually ends up more expensive anyway ... So Airmail and one game at a time (so I never get to pay extra customtaxes).

Should have preordered

I preordered Med because I somehow failed to notice that it wasn't standalone, so when I got it I had to go and buy Europe - I got that in an expensive retail store though (Outland in Oslo, same as where I got Twilight Struggle). I mean, someone has to buy GMT games in retail stores as an incentive for the stores to go and order more from GMT.

Europe is now listed as out of stock, so there might be a chance for it to enter P500 as a reprint eventually, I bet.

Outland in Trondheim didnt have the game(s) but have promised to order a few. Prefer to buy it from a local store if possible (price is not the most important thing when buying local).
