I'm trying to place an order from spiele-offensive or consimshop (I'm in the United States) and am being driven crazy by a problem with each. For spiele-offensive, I can't figure out how to get the VAT discounted from the pricing. Even logging in with my US address isn't helping.

And while consimshop correctly deducts the VAT, when I try to checkout, it presents me with no choices for how to pay, yet gives me an error that I have not yet chosen my payment method.

Has anyone successfully ordered from the US lately? What am I doing wrong?

Any other German shops to try?

Thanks for any help.

One of the cheapest (and with good service) is Dragonworld in Hamburg.

http://www.magierspiele.de/index.php

Or try the price finder (with a list of most of the German E-Shops)

http://www.brettspielsuche.de/

The text is in German. Just enter the game your are looking for topn left and the click the shops in the left panel.

Best Regards
Chris

Magierspiele does not ship towards the US, and their shipping-cost is pretty damn high.

Hi gnomehome,

Th@nx for the info. Of course I haven't tried international shipping.
In Germany the postage cost are not really high.

Best Regards

If you mail your problem to C.Reis@cosimshop.de, I'm sure Christoph will work that out for you.

After you place your order, be sure to tell us what games you found there that made it worth the trouble.

Thanks everyone for all the great suggestions. I've started by emailing Christoph, and will let you know how everything turned out! (Including what games I eventually get to order!)

A quick update in case anyone is interested. Turns out the Cosimshop website isn't set up to ship to the U.S., so you can't order online. But the email that Matthias provided above got me in touch with the shop, and Christoph very kindly agreed to put my order together manually and priced out shipping to the U.S. for me.

I don't know if he would welcome more business from the US or if its more trouble for him than its worth, but they have very nice prices on a number of the new essen games. There is a link on the left side of their home page (Essen Spezial) that shows all the Essen games they are carrying.

Thanks again to all for your help and offers to help.
