Boards & Bits has a card game in stock that I've been wanting for a while, but I don't want to have to pay $10 to have it shipped to me. I would, however, be willing to piggyback on someone else's order, and pay to have it shipped economy-style to me.

So, any takers? I know the Christmas season has left a lot of us Geeks stretched mighty thin, but I can split the cost of the $10 shipping to help out.

Thanks!

Sorry Isaac, I would gladly help, but I just placed a $150 order with Thought Hammer two days ago. I really should wait a bit. I hope you find someone to help you out.

Curse you, Red Baron! I'm not supposed to be spending any money, but I do have a few things that I need to get, and if I can help a fellow geek in the process...

The only caveat is that the game I absolutely have to get is Pizza Box Football, which is listed as a pre-order, so I'm not sure when my order would ship. If you're not in a hurry, though, I'm sure we can work something out.

You might also contact Tom (sales@boardsandbits.com) and see if he'd be willing to cut you a shipping deal on one lonely card game.

So, how much is economy shipping? I hate to troll your thread, but it sounds like you're niggling over $4-5, which just smacks me as a touch silly.

Maybe. But even economy shipping will be about $6, and that's 66% of the price of the game itself. Maybe it's the principle of the thing, but I'd rather not pay that much for a card game, and I don't want to feel pressured into ordering more games than I want.

I missed that it was a card game. I had visions of someone niggling $4 for a $30 game.

...embarassing....

Sorry... my pakage from Boards&Bits just arrived today... I was too early to help you.

I too agree that sometimes the $10 flat rate is a bit high if you are only getting one or two small games at a time. (But it is better than the $12 that it used to be.)

Maybe there's a local out there who can pick it up from the warehouse for you, and then ship to you. I'd offer if I was getting anything in the near future, but I've already made 2 large orders in the last couple months, and it's slightly out of the way for me.

Thanks, everyone, for the suggestions, and to all those who have made offers to help me. I've settled on a fine gentleman who wanted some GG, and offered to buy the game and ship it to me, in exchange for GG. This is like sniping a GG auction!

Anyway, thanks to all who offered to help out!
