USA Roundup

Hi folks,

Let's get going on this USA order of the Taiwan maps

Here's who we've got:

> USA (15):
* USA West Coast (10):
   - Mikeagan (x1)  :(y)
   - Allograft (x8)  :(y)
   - TheDoctor_13 (x1)
* Colorado(1):
   - edarling (x1)  :(y)
* Wisconsin (1):
   - gamgeefan2 (x1)  :(y)
* USA East Coast (3):
   - ny1050220 (x1)  :(y)
   - Carlium (x1)  :(y)
   - MetalGearHorus / Horus (x1)  :(y)

Payment will come in two parts. First, people will pay to get it across the pond to me.

The above represents $328.67 in total or $21.91 per map not including Customs Duties or domestic shipping. Bear in mind, the Europe group was charged around €30 for the currency conversion, so we will take this into account ahead of time. For €30/15 maps is €2 per map. Given the current conversation rate from Google of 0.86 €/$, then that's an extra $2.32 per map. So, that would be $21.91 + $2.32 = $24.32 that I want to receive from people via PayPal, VenMo, or possibly other means. If people choose to pay via PayPal, you've got absorb the fee if you want the assurance of insurance for paying for a good rather than friends and family. I must receive $24.32 per map after whatever associated costs there are. PM me, and I can give you payment addresses.

The second payment will have two, possibly three, parts. If I have to pay some customs and duties, then I will pass those along and will need to be reimbursed.. Second, I have to ship to you, so that's to be worked out. I usually do USPS first class, but if people want something different, then we can work that out too. Finally, if I have to pay for any containers, then that may be a third component. No tip requested or required.

My ballpark is no more than $45-$50 all in per map. Hopefully less. That being said, I am just looking to cover my out of pocket expenses. My time and effort is a labor of love to community to increase all of our enjoyment.

Please confirm, PM me, and let's get payment arranged to get these puppies to us!

Here's the USA update. I have gotten packing material, shipping addresses, and shipping options squared away for everyone. I believe that I will mail them on Tuesday and will follow up with people in the evening in my part of the world -  :pink-meeple:

I had never considered multiple copies of the same expansion in a single game, I suppose except for a couple of variants of the river. These days, I use the 20th river and River 3, speaking of Hills and Sheep. We sometimes use the BB6 base river too, for megacarc. -  :pink-meeple:

One can get the 20th Anniversary on Amazon as well as the expansions. FYI, the travel set is on Amazon too at the Rio Grande games shop, and it's a better price than eBay had.

Hello USA delivery group!

I have news. I was going to send via PM, but I kept getting 406 error for last 12 hours.

Anyhoo, here's what I wanted to say. I guess that there is no concern about publicly posting the information:

Good news! With Meepledrone's help, I was able to successfully negotiate the transaction with Swan Panasia, and our maps are on the way.

Tracking number is: CG001336111TW. Although it's from Taiwan, you can check it with USPS tracking. I'll let you know as things develop, and you can also check yourself whenever you feel like. The customer service rep indicated that it might be like 16-18 days, but with corona, who knows.

Three days or so is okay... They are 14 hours ahead from you. You can simply ask politely if they have all they info they need for the shipping, and by the way, if there is any target date as you may be traveling on and off shortly... for example ;)

Update inquiry email sent to Swan Panasia. I feel it was a balance between polite and assertive...I mean it has already been three weeks since I ordered and paid. Hopefully we get an answer by the end of the week -  :pink-meeple:

I suspect if you've got enough cash and like boardgames, you don't care.

Indeed, it’s a perspective that I am similarly unable to orient myself towards. I can imagine it…but that’s about it

As someone who only plays with C1 I would love that set!

I 2nd that! Nice haul.

I’d 3rd that. Any chance of a Christmas distribution to some others of us?

Always happy to help.  ;D

How long do you think that we should give her before following up again since we haven’t heard anything a more back in the past several days? -  :pink-meeple:

Those of us in the USA owe Meepledrone a big thank you. I was trying to do the polite thing and not pressure Swan Panasia, but that was clearly misplaced. I bought the stuff on October 20, but apparently buying something and sending money isn't enough to prompt their shipping department to pack and send stuff. So, it looks like Meepledrone was correct to push a bit, and hopefully we'll get some movement soon.

I do want to let USA buyers know, I am headed out of the country Dec 9 through January 7, so if it arrives in that time frame, there will be some delay. That being said, let's hope that it arrives before so that I can distribute. I suppose if it hadn't been for Meepledrone, I might not have even pushed to get the ball rolling until after I got back. -  :pink-meeple:
