I too have had a mis-order from cundco, after numerous perfect ones. They sent me half and half instead of the beleagerers. Never mind I was going to get half and half anyway! Just waiting for my new order to come in the post!

I wonder if they are just really busy at the moment?

Yep, it’s available from cundco.de.

Cundco is great if you’re spending up to 10 Euros, but as soon as you spend more than this the cost of international postage shoots up somewhat dramatically. Unfortunately Gold Rush costs 20 Euros, and postage is a further 23.50. So unless you’re prepared to fork out the extra money for postage (or find several other interested parties who would also like a copy and are willing to split the postage between you) then it may be better to wait for Z-Man to release it locally for you.

The other thing is that if you buy from Cundco you’ll get the German edition (although translated rules are available)...

Good points.. I ordered the Sheriff from Cundco, and I don't even have the game yet. I'm anxious to play it - nnot sure I can wait until mid-December when Z-Man releases the English version. I'm going to post in Marketplace, see if anyone over in the EU could help. :)

I love the postman too. He brought me a package today with a sheet of blank tiles which I have not decided what to do with yet, and a tile sheet of the River 1. Which I already have, so if there is someone UK based who is up for a swap for something let me know. I only specify UK, to save on postage, but doesn't have to be UK.
Just lay the damn tile!

Hi danisthirsty,

H and G was from eBay uk. It's not new but in very good condition.  Not had chance to play yet but I like the sound of some of the differences from normal carc. And I really like the theme too.

Have you played gold rush yet?

That will be my next purchase. I am into the Wild West in general and I like the art of gold rush (the scoreboard especially). I understand it will be out in the uk in December - I think.

Regards,
Robf.
