I might also suggest that people check the store first before posting. Mail them of the actual stock.

About 40% of all the stores I inquiry via phone or e-mail have less or (more often) none in stock.

A good test if not keen on contacting them is typing in 1000 copies and see the cart actually add that many, of an item that clearly is impossible to find that many in one place.

Of course if you go to Paul's own website and type in 1,000 copies it will probably work.   :@

BoardGameExtras.co.uk have a wide range of expansions, including the larger ones, all 6 minis, Spielbox Halflings and spin-offs:

I think maybe it would be better to use "had" here; almost all of them are out of stock according to those links! I'll add the link for the Spielbox halflings though, thanks for pointing it out!  :(y)

His blade defends the helpless.
His might upholds the weak.
His word speaks only truth.
His wrath undoes the wicked.

Exactly, but some users of the forum live them, you can always ask a rebound transport.

Happy to help out if required.  I have a couple of copies sitting here ready for quick dispatch.

I am pretty sure I have mentioned they are available at a good price before. Note the price is in NZ dollars.

Thanks Andrew. I've noted that it's NZ only and have listed the other link for this on Amazon.com which is US only.  :(y)

Loki, you have made a great and rare find! These tiles are quite good, especially the spring with the road (breaking up potential large fields going around the spring). It's just a shame that many of these tiles (except two) can now be found in expansions that were released after this Games Quaterley edition. That being said, this is a must have for the collectors here!

Canada store regarding international shipping:

INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING CHARGES:
The minimum order for overseas shipping is $100 before shipping costs are added. A $20 handling fee applies if under this amount. Cost of shipping to destinations outside of the United States and Canada varies.

I presume they mean CAD (Canadian Dollars).

Non-international purchases has a 7 CAD handling fee for orders below 50 CAD.
