About three months ago I purchased High Grip Z-Balls from the designer, Emmanuel Arnould. He is a very nice person to deal with, and I am sure he can supply you with Z-Balls as well.

A hint for obtaining Emmanuel Arnould's email is [firstname].[surname]@cepiafrance.com .

The Cepia Games website appears to have been dead for a period, however, and I am not sure what to make of that. If you do contact Emmanuel, I would be curious to hear news of how the company fares.

PS: Also, Ludikbazar is a good and cheap option, but the postage can be expensive.

Doesn't do much good for the UK, but for those in the states I just ordered a number of packs from France. Figured since I was paying for international shipping I might as well try to reduce the cost for others looking to purchase them in the states. Should have them on Amazon in a few weeks.

Really, Luke Peters? You bought all of the remaining Z-balls from Ludikbazar in France (€3 per pack), and now you're reselling them for 4 times the price ($12.99 per pack on Amazon.com). Reducing the cost for others indeed...

I don't know Luke, but I have bought internationally and it can be a pain. I think $13 is fairly reasonable for oop accessories to an oop game.

I agree that $13 is not a bad price (Z-balls are awesome), but I still think it is lame to buy up the remaining stock of Z-balls available in Europe and quadrupling the price before reselling them in the US - especially in the name of "reducing the cost for others".

I don't know how many packs were bought, however, so maybe Luke's pricing is simply a fair way of splitting the postage costs.

Probably bumping a dead thread, but I didn't check back after posting. I bought around 10 packs and had them imported. I did only because I wanted them and it wasn't worth the cost of shipping to order 1-2 packs. I listed a few and they sold out instantly, so I listed a second batch at the higher price. I hardly made a killing on these. I'm sorry if that wasn't good enough and caused some hard feelings. They are long gone at this point.
