Okay, okay, I can barely ignore the siren call of SMG anymore. Too many fans, too much good chatter ... gack! Whew, err ...

Has shipping cost of DoD to Canada gone up with the recent (and quite startling) USPS fee increases? Other wargaming threads are direly predicting the average wargame sized box (think GMT-sized) is now going to be $40+?!

Also, is the DoD that I'd order the 2nd edition one?

Are there any retailers (in Canada) that you can buy from instead of direct?

Thanks.

Re: Shipping to Canada gone up? 2nd edition now shipping?

1. Easy-- there are no more 1st Editions to be had, at least not directly from LBG. Unlike other companies, they produce things in very small lots.
They have been shipping 2nd Edition since last August. If you want a 1st Edition, you can buy mine (but why would you want to!).

2. Yes, the US postal rates took a jump. I don't know how much LBG is going to increase their rates, but they have not yet.

They have really been mostly 'subsidizing' shipping anyway and seldom collect as much as it costs to ship. Especially when folks order stuff beyond Day-- like picking up the big box expansions-- their shipping charges only cover part of the real cost.

Look here:
https://www.lostbattaliongames.com/t-shipping.aspx

You will find your shipping goes DOWN as you order more.

3. I am not familiar with retailers in Canada but we see a fair number of Canadian players, so perhaps they can help with that.


Hope that helps.

Wow! Only $17.95 to Canada. That's gonna push me over the purchase edge. Thanks for the link, Kevin.

Re: Shipping to Canada gone up? 2nd edition now shipping?
that international shipping is pretty low!
i paid $22 for a 12" record to be shipped to the uk!!!!!
I do fear the rising postage costs (they're going up here too) will soon nail an end to transatlantic buying and selling, but i hope some other way of doing it pops up.. you have too many good things i need!!!

Re: Shipping to Canada gone up? 2nd edition now shipping?
Well, here's to the folks who have been thinking about it... better move quickly!

They realize the new postal increases really 'demand' that they increase things some, but they aren't going to just jump up and slap "add X dollars" to everything. They want to assess the whole picture and balance things, but you can count on some increase. It will be a couple weeks before that happens, though, so if you've been on the fence, this is a good time to jump off.

Geronimo!

Well, if you had a friend in Buffalo you could have it shipped there, play a game or two and run home to save a bit on postage

Looks like a standing offer-- Canadians. You've got a friend in Buffalo! (Bring him beer-- bring me cider.)

True, that. Next time we're driving down to Lexington to see friends down I75, though, I'll stop for a game at your place!
