Designer Edition of Ogre up on Kickstarter
« on: April 11, 2012, 12:41:35 PM »
Remember Ogre? Remember how it was cheap and crappy?

Well... do you want a giant map and nice cardboard figures?

Also, you rarely get to see Steve Jackson talking about one of his classic games.

Well... I was wating for this but the no foreign orders for the game really sucks.
And it doesn't seem his claim of trying to get it out of the US rings very true when he wants to charge $15 shipping for soime dice if I were to add them to a lower support leveL.

Hope it does well in the US.

I've shipped some boardgames overseas before. I'm going to guess that the sheer size of that box is going to make it prohibitively expensive. I really want to get this edition, but $100 is a really hard sell.

No Canada? Guess I'm out.

Also...$100? Everything looks nice, but I'm not sure I'm seeing $100 nice there.

It's doing well... $113,000+ pledged so far. Their target was $20,000.
Lots of extras being added as they get more money.

As for Canadian and overseas shipping they postd this:

Quote
(2) Yes, absolutely, we are going to find some overseas shipping solutions. We just didn’t want to delay launch. We’ll announce Canadian and overseas shipping costs as soon as we can.


So there may be hope yet..... 8)

It is according to the USPS. And UPS started doing this weird customs charge of about $40 in addition to shipping!

EDIT: I really didn't edit your post BTW, I accidentally hit my "modify" mod tool rather than Quote.  :o

No problem.

UPS is the worst when shipping across the border. I will tell any company to any other method even if more expensive rather than use UPS. Frakkin's theives! >:(
