Hi all,

I don't really get it, so... how much must I pay for shipping if I live in Germany?

I read the explanation text about shipping and there it was explained that the games to the EU will be shipped from germany, that it will cost 26€ per game and that all backers shall pay 25$.

25$ is actually round about 18€ so it seems a little bit expansive to ship a game from germany to germany. Or is this why no one can handle each copy in that detail so one can say to germany 7€, to spain 11€ and so on?

I don't want to complain about the price, I want to understand what I must pay. I still have the option to pick it up at Essen 2013 if the shipping costs are to much for me...

Eigentlich ist das auf der KS-Seite unmißverständlich beschrieben: Es sind bloß die 25 USD (das ist wenig im Vergleich zu anderen KS-Projekten) mit dem weiteren Vorteil, daß Du keinen Zoll zahlen mußt und das Paket direkt an Dich ausgeliefert werden kann (je nachdem wie weit weg Du von Deinem Zollamt wohnst, ein enormer Vorteil).

I think I probably confused people by stating the real costs. My point was that we're covering about $10 of real shipping costs in your pledge (which is about what the USA people get), but you must pay the rest. So we're asking for $25 USD to cover the rest. As the game will get shipped from Brave New Worlds who is in Germany/EU, you will not have to pay any VAT or Custom charges on top of that either!

@James: I've backed the 'Essen Spacer' option but now that I've read that the game will be sent from Brave new World I'm thinking about to change my backing option to be able to receive my game from them (and paying the shipping costs). Will this be possible?

These kind of things make my life a logistical headache

But if you pay the $25 in paypal to webmaster@miniongames.com and then send me a message in Kickstarter that you want it mailed instead from BNW I will not your account and it should all work out.
