Patchistory US order

Post by Stompy » Mon Sep 22, 2014 9:55 am

Anyone interested in a combined order director from the publisher in the US?
It appears to be the only way to get hold of the promos that come with it.

Base game is US$60, and shipping gets less (per copy) with a greater number.

Eg shipping for one is US$32.55.
For two it's US$56.48, three is US$69.32 etc

I'm keen to put an order in in a couple of days if there's interest.


Edit, I forgot to add information about distribution...
I work in the CBD, live in Glenroy, and frequent the Dockers gaming group
I also have probable mules to EGF, Billabong and the Royal Standard.

Have you considered posting to the Melbourne Crowdfunding FB group as well?

Hi Roger, I don't want too many orders. The shipping benefit starts dropped ng off with too many and it also becomes difficult to organize.

Edit here are some breakdowns of shipping cost dependingn the size of the order:
1 order $32.55 per copy
2 orders $28.24 per copy
3 orders $23.10 per copy
4 orders $20.83 per copy
5 orders $19.81 per copy
6 orders $18.08 per copy
7 orders $17.37 per copy

IMHO four orders is the sweet spot

Unfortunately the promos are missing from the delivery box, so I've contacted the publisher about it.
They did respond promptly and will get copies sent out today. That means I'll be in contact again with everyone in about a weeks time for these too.

After opening (and playing) the game last night I would recommend getting some sleeves for the patch tiles. They are reasonably thin card (but not too thin) , however the are warping quite a bit.
The FFG square sleeves (70 x 70) fit very well, help mitigate the warping, and make the tiles a little firmer.

How many sleeves do you need, Paul?

(BTW, sent you a PM regarding pickup ...)

There are 93 tiles (off the top of my head).
Two packs of the FFG (50/pack) sleeves covers it fine.

The only other cards that it would be nice to sleeve are the 4 starting, Capital titles.
These would need FFG 'Tarot' sized sleeves - these starting titles are the only rectangular shaped ones - all the rest are the 70x70 square shape
