I really want to order the game but when shipping is as much as the game, well, that is a pretty big deterrent.

Stronghold has roots in Canada/Calgary, how about warehousing some up here???

Anyway if 2 people order to a USA address, shipping is really cheap like $4.50 each, plus game ~$21 so total is $25.50 each, much more appealing.

So my desperate plea goes out, if anywhere out there in Toronto Area or coming to Toronto area sees this and wants to split please PM me!

Failing this, if two people order up to Canada I think shipping is $12 each, that is a little more doable, except if duty and taxes get added on then its back to square one likely.

Would really like the expansion (only included in Pre-order or Essen order, no other way to get it unfortunately) as it adds the all important disinfection card for the Humans but maybe I'm just not going to get it...

I bit the bullet and paid the crazy shipping fees with my preorder. Nearly killed me, but I did it. I'm in Ottawa though... and I'm not sure whether I can change my order or not.

Yeah, I want it, too, but the shipping made me think otherwise.

Thanks for trying to organize this. Yes, shipping from the U.S. to Canada is expensive.

Note that with most of our games (until we release something truly massive), the savings do add up when ordering multiple copies. Panic Station is a fine example of that, just two copies nearly halves the shipping charge on a per game basis. Teaming up to place preorders can be an excellent way of saving a few dollars.

Finally, we have not heard of any of our Canadian customers receiving bills for duty or taxes.

Seconded. Shipping shouldn't be as expensive as the item itself. I made it to the checkout page before my rationale kicked in and canceled the order.

I ended up recruiting some local people to split on an order.

With 4 of us ordering shipping was $6.75 each, much more comparable with an USA order and very doable.

Check Stronghold website for details but we will not incur any duty/taxes on this order which REALLY helps out and finalized my decision.
