I tried to buy some games from them today, but shipping was not the 14 euro it used to be. It was raised to 40 euro and they wanted me to pay over 100 euros on import taxes. Has the store changed or it's just me?

Looks like you are right. I just tried it out to see and shipping was 30 Euros. Alas the good shipping deal might be over for now.

That seems weird, I just checked:
#######
USA, Japan -- Standardversand 8-12 Werktage Buch, VHS, DVD, CD, Brettspiele & Puzzles, PC- & Videospiele, Bürobedarf **
14,00 EUR
Weltweit -- Standardversand 7-19 Werktage Buch, VHS, DVD, CD, Brettspiele & Puzzles, PC- & Videospiele, Bürobedarf **
14,00 EUR
#######

So either there info isn't up to date, or it should cost 14 Euro for "Brettspiele".

I think it's more about availability of some games that sometimes don't make it over the pond. At 14 euros shipping it was nice since you could get a couple of people together to get some games. At 30+ Euros that price is a bit much now. I have picked up some of the Keltis games as well as the smaller Abacus Spiele games that are just plain hard to get here.

angryBoo! I tried Egizia and got the same thing, 30 Euro. I've emailed amazon.de to get an explanation. I'm sure it won't end well. Too bad. However, if you split the order between enough people, that 30 Euro isn't too bad, if it's a game you flat out can't find elsewhere.

laughGood News!

I emailed Amazon.de:


Thank you for contacting Amazon.de.

I am sorry that there arr irritations regarding the postage to the US:

In general, postage for standard delivery is EUR 14.00, EUR 30.00 is charged for express deliveries.

Usually you may of course select whether you want your order to be shipped via standard or via express delivery. In the process of changing the shipping system, however, an error has occurred, displaying the express option only.

Our technicians are currently working on a solution. In the meantime, I would like to ask for your patience. I am sure that the issue will be settled soon.

I hope I have been of help and wish you a nice week.
