Help needed from someone from the UK
« on: July 26, 2015, 12:03:43 PM »

Hi, I need help from someone from the UK.

I've been looking for a boardgame to surprise my partner with on our anniversary and have already been looking for years for it, but it's Always too expensive or too damaged.

Now, there is a (used) copy on Ebay, but it's still in great shape (I think) judging by the 2 photos. However, it's UK based and they won't ship outside the UK.
I've already send another message, asking if I could bid/buy with my own Ebay account and then give them a UK based address to ship the game to. In this case, all I would be needing is someone's address to use to have the game shipped to and for them to ship it to me. No need to change the box or anything, just stick a piece of paper with my address on it or some other method to change the address. I'll ofcourse pay for the re-shipping costs. Or, if you're visiting the Spiel fair in October, that would be even better to exchange the game in person... :D

Worst case scenerio, the won't accept a different address from the one in my Ebay account, in which case I'm hoping someone would be kind enough to also bid for me with their Ebay account.

In any case, if there's anyone from the UK, willing to help me out, please reply or PM me. It would be greatly appreciated and mean a lot to me.

Thank you for offering to help, all of you!

Right now, Decar has offered to help out.

Would anyone know what it would cost to ship a game to The Netherlands from the UK?
I'm thinking it might be quite a heavy game. It would be like 3-4 pounds, presumably.

Thank you all for offering to help.

Unfortunately I didn't win, and was overbid by like 2 GBP.  :'(

Hopefully soon another one will pop up again.  ;)
