I mailed to Spielbox yesterday and they told me it actually takes longer shipping to Belgium than it does to the United States. So they said I had to be patient until the end of the week. A glimpse of hope emerges! Let's hope it pays off!

Lol they said Exacly the same to me xd

Well geographically that makes no sense.  I do pay more for shipping, so I guess I get something for my money.

 The only logical reason I can think of is that the truck leaves Germany and hits all of the Trappist and Lambic breweries on the way.  That tends to slow things down.  At least that is what would happen if I was tasked with delivering your package.

It may say more about the performance of the Belgian postal service of course...
Whatever it is, it's probably in the post from Germany...

My copies of the tunnels arrived the other day. Or at least I was expecting them to... turns out I ordered the wrong issue.

Not exactly the postman's fault, but there isn't a I Hate Myself thread.

(PS, if anyone's willing to sell/swap a copy, let me know!)

You can start one! :P

Ah, but would that be a 'I Hate Myself' thread, or 'I Hate ooh_jim'?  ;)

A merit for your honesty!  Which issue did you order?

The plague issue, so I now have a couple spare.

:( I already have 4 or 5 copies of the Plague.  I was very close to making the same mistake when ordering Tunnels too.  Surely someone will have an extra copy just for you. 

If not Rosco has a copy of Ebay at the moment that's isn't too expensive - perhaps he will cancel the ebay for a buy it now price :/

I was lucky enough to catch a copy on the boardgamegeek market for around €10 a year or so back, so I really can't complain - just wanted an extra copy to make some alt coloured chips & extra tiles for scaling.

5 copies of the Tunnels appeared on EBay in the USA for $40 each.   :(n)    :(

I hate when resellers get what they want and the nice collectors on here get hosed.

Whilst I don't blame the postman, I object to his employers' business practices
