Just curious if there are on any online retailers in Spain that ship the to the USA? Apparently they are having deflation (see http://www.nytimes.com/2009/04/21/business/global/21deflate....) and curious if Spain may be a better place to place an overseas order from (probably not but just curious)

Games in Spain are not exactly cheap, and most of the time the selection is relatively poor compared to most other European retailers. The hobby is also too small for deep discounters to make money. Most of the time my brother, in Spain, ends up ordering from Germany anyway. You find stores that discount Runebound down to 42 Euros, BattleLore to 62, Crusader Rex to 54 and Carc to 18. Not exactly cheap.

The deflation is a lot more noticeable in industries that are traditionally more prone to discounting, like electronics and clothing.

Here, learn more about Spain's deflation:

Yeah, clothing and cars are slightly cheaper, but boardgaming in Spain is now as expensive as always.

I have never seen a spanish FLGS making discounts under the MSRP, and the discounts of our online stores are smallers than those on your country. Due to price fixing, small catalogues, and the strength of the Euro, we are the ones who import games from Germany, UK or the USA.

So enjoy the prices of your country. laugh

When I think of those things I tell to myself: "at least, here we have cured ham".
