As I did a year ago, I am planning to place another order for 160,000 or more 8mm wood cubes from a German game manufacturer in order to get a good discount. I intend to purchase 25,000 of each of the following colors:

red, yellow, green, blue, white, gray, black, brown

Is anyone interested in purchasing one or more sets of 1000 8mm cubes in each of the following colors (8,000 total)?

1000 x red
1000 x yellow
1000 x green
1000 x blue
1000 x white
1000 x gray
1000 x black
1000 x brown

I can't give you a firm price yet, but it looks like it will be about 2.5 cents each, or $200 per set + $10 flat shipping to the U.S. I have no idea how much a set will weigh, so if you live outside the U.S., you'll have to pay actual shipping costs at the time of shipping.

Last time, I was able to offer them for a bit less per cube, but the dollar is worth significantly less euros this year compared to last year.

If you're familiar with places like spielmaterial.de and boardgamebits.com though, you know they charge around 8 to 15 cents per cube, even in larger quantities, plus shipping, so here's your chance to get lots of cubes dirt cheap.

Production Time: 6-8 weeks for the manufacturer, 3-4 weeks for ocean freight shipping to me, 2-3 weeks for me to get them sorted, counted, and shipped to you. You'll likely get them around mid-March.

Delivery: +/- 10% of the total cubes (I do not count the cubes by hand. I weigh the total amount of cubes they send, then divide by the number of sets sold. They send +/- 10%, so that will be reflected in your quantity.)

Terms of Payment: 100% up front via Paypal only

Deadline: December 8, 2009

On December 8, I will send out invoices with the final price via Paypal to everyone that ordered. Payment will then be required by December 10th.

I hope to place this order no later than December 10th, so please respond soon.

I'm guessing a lot of people might not have $200 for wood cubes, but would still like to get in on this.

Print 'n Play Productions will be ordering some cubes. If you want to get in on this great deal, then I can send you out however many you want, of whatever colors you want!
Costs: 3.5 cents per cube
Shipping/Handling/Sorting: $10 for the US or $15 for International folks.

Just send me a geekmail, and let me know your order.
Include your address, # of cubes and colors, and payment preferences.

Yes, count me in, please! I did something like this last year with my friend Brett, and was alarmed at how often I used these cubes.

One set is 100 of every color, right? In that case, yes.

1000 of each color = 8000 cubes * about 0.025 = $200

I'm distributing these at very close to my cost, so I don't want to split up 100+ orders.

Oh my, I'll be all set with cubes. Yes, 1000 cubes of each color is cool. Thanks for doing this, Tim!

Are these the same size as last time?
(Not sure that I need any more of the same size, but might be interested in they are the next size up).

Understood. If you end up putting together an order for bigger cubes, I am in.

No one? Last year I got quite a few requests.

Perhaps you and some buddies can join together to buy a lot, then split them up!

Tim, I admire your craziness and dedication.

I will take one set. I'll poll the area gamers, as last time, and see if there is a need for more.

I do not know what size they are in 1960. They are 8mm cubes though... standard "smaller" cubes -- not the larger 10mm.

There is no chance for direct shipment to you. I get the price I do because I'm ordering a huge quantity.

If you want, I can ship them to you in Italy, but it will probably cost about $40 or so for USPS Priority Mail. But that's still a lot cheaper than you can get them from a normal store.

I am afraid I have to pass this year as 1,000 each is just too many and nobody I know has any need for them. Thanks for the offer, though.

I would be interested in a set also but I have two questions:

1. Does anyone know how much more it would be to ship to Canada.

2. I have no idea what "paypal" is about. How do you pay with "paypall"?
