Is the 2x2 pack available internationally too? If so, how much is shipping?

Give me a few days to see how much it would cost to ship. The problem with international shipping is that it costs so much to track it (or I have to send it without tracking, which has its own problems). Most likely, I will offer a similar deal for international customers, but without any tracking and where the responsibility for lost shipment is on the customer.

If you want to contact me directly to make an offer, I'm always willing to work with individuals.

Thanks

I checked on international shipping today. Basically, sending four games (without tracking) will cost in the $55 range outside of the U.S. Add tracking and it goes up to $100, just for shipping.

In short, it's less expensive to send 4 games individually at about $12 per game. It sounds crazy, but once a package goes over a certain weight (like 2 pounds), it becomes much more expensive to ship internationally.

I'm at a loss. I would like to be able to work with international customers and give them good deals, but I have no good ideas now.

Thoughts?

Thanks for trying - Unfortunately, that's the tyranny of distance.

I may still order one or both at some point, I just thought I might be able to get someone in the game group to go in a lessen the cost.

Anyway, I appreciate the effort!

Awesome news!! Will the usual online game retailers be able to pick this game up through distributors, or are you selling strictly from your own website?

Both: retail stores can buy through distributors (or me) and individuals can buy directly through my website.

Thanks.

In August, I will be offering international customers 1 copy of both games for $55, which includes shipping. If you want to buy 2 copies of S&S Dice for the same price, just let me know and I'll do it. Info on my webpage: doctorfinns.com
