Anyone have any suggestions for where I should try to pre-order? Also, any idea when it comes out over here?

Hey, this is my first post.
I'm in the UK too, and looking to order it. Gamewright say they ship internationally, but there may be additional import charges and duties. Does anyone have any experience of this?

I bought the tiny little Madness and Allies expansions for A Touch Of Evil and Customs bummed me over for a £15 charge. You're probably better off waiting for it to appear in UK shops. Which it will do soon by all accounts . . .

Any idea when it will be available in Spain? I've no good game shops near me, but I am spending some time with some gamer friends in Barcelona soon.

Don't know about game shops, or availability in Spain, Rob. but if you haven't got a "local" game shop then there are a few good online shops in the UK.

I have used the following for online orders...
Shire Games (My FLGS in Stoke On Trent - Highly recommended)
Games Lore
IGUK

all have been really good for me.

Cheers

As Paul said Coiledspring Games are releasing it first week in June. I sent an email to Roger Martin there to ask about details. He said it would cost £16/£17 and be the same edition as the American release. Hopefully it'll come in the awesome tin! I'm really looking forward to playing this.

From http://www.hmrc.gov.uk/customs/post/buying.htm

Quote:
If you order or send purchased goods other than alcohol, tobacco, perfume and toilet water from a country outside the EU then you:
don't have to pay Excise Duty
may have to pay Customs Duty on goods with a value that exceeds £120
will have to pay Import VAT on goods with a value that exceeds £18
Note that on all goods from outside the EU, Customs Duty is waived if the amount of duty calculated is £7 or under.


I would still wait for Forbidden Island to be released here, since shipping will probably cost a lot. But this info might be useful when you want to order something else.

And yes, customs are a bunch of greedy *%@$@^! Import VAT and customs duty? They once wanted me to pay duty on personal luggage sent to me (so my stuff, bought within the EU!) that I had to leave behind during an evacuations abroad!

Edit: correction of some BB-code
