Ordering Russian Carcassonne Tiles
« on: April 01, 2015, 07:06:15 AM »
I've had many people ask me how to get hold of The Russian Carcassonne Tiles:




Given the very expensive postage (and VAT charges), it's definitely cheaper to consolidate orders.

I may be ordering again soon so:

If you're interested - please let me know plus which Country you're from and I'll investigate how much it will all cost; or what the cheapest approach will be.

You may also want to consider:  Russian versions of: Hunters & Gatherers, The Castle and Wheel of Fortune.

Interested Parties:

Decar - WoF - UK
Guy - Carcassone City- UK
Ratz65 - Carcassonne City - Germany

----

SRBO- Carcassonne City -Netherlands
Khonnor - Carcassonne City - Netherlands

I would like a copy, depending on the price to the UK.

Currently Russian Count Costs ~ £15 per box.  When I checked it cost £37 (+ possible VAT) to deliver one box to the UK.
When I ordered 3, Postage + VAT came to £18 per box.
Postage inside the UK + £3 per box.

So my last order came to £36 per box.     :o

Hopefully people on this thread will group together to reduce their costs.  :(y) :(y)

Boxes contain:

18 Tiles for The Tower + the tower
30 Tiles for Princess and Dragon
1 City of Carcassonne Tile
12 The River 1 Tiles
5 Shine Tiles
6 Crop Circle 1 Tiles
----
Total: 72 tiles.

I've just had a look on ozon.ru - Russia's answer to Amazon. They're selling this box for £25.30 inc postage to the UK. They also have copies of:

The Castle
Winter Edition
Kids of Carc 2nd ed
Hunter & Gatherer 2nd ed
The Discovery
King's Gift - which looks like a big box containing base game, I&C, T&B, A&M and K&S

I'm not sure if or how these vary from the euro editions though.

Has anyone had any experience with ozon before?

Not used them before - Looks like you can get The Count/Tower for £30 delivered (+ VAT); so seems to come to about the same.

Thanks for the offer, Decar - merit for you.

I'm going to check out ozon though, I think. The total for the count/tower box came to £26.18 for me; inc VAT, postage and any paypal costs. I'll let you guys know when the game arrives and if I have any trouble with them.

No worries Jim - goodluck, it's always good knowing about other services. BTW: You might find you pay VAT when the item arrives in the UK - Parcelforce (EMS) slap on £15 handling fee, (Royal Mail usually £8).

SRBO: I've taken some more photos; the inlay is not that exciting:

Decar,

Put me down for one copy please. It's sad that it's mostly for the single tile city! Postage is to the UK so that works out with any other uk orders.

Does that mean you're out SRBO? - don't want to miss anyone off the list ;)

The way I look at it -  if I order WoF too I've got enough K backed tiles and with the Tile Dispenser coming from Basically Wooden, there's no sneak peaking ;)

Hi Decar, maybe you could post the site where you order these from, if anyone wants to order directly from them?

I am really interested in this, but main reason is the Big Count Tile. So paying anything more than 20-25 euro is my maximum (inc. shipping).

Did anyone (Kettlefish?) ever contact HiG to tell them of this version of the tile and if they'll ever release it as well as special promo or something?
