Ufortunatelly, I missed this thread on forum, and the ordering part. But, is there any chance that there would be unreserved copy of the map to be shipped inside Europe (to Poland)?

Hi ma_Rysia,

Sorry you missed the thread. The order didn't include spare maps, just the ones requested by the participants.

If there is any change in the order, I will let you know.

Although the tracking page hasn't displayed any changes, I just got an SMS from the Spanish Postal Service. They tell me I will be soon notified when I have to deal with all the Customs paperwork. I'll keep you posted.

Hi all,

A very trying last three weeks of work appears to be loosening up a little bit, so I can at least look at this thread. Meepledrone, I'll PM you to ask what needs to be done to pass the baton from you to me.

Thanks -  :pink-meeple:

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)  C:-)  :green-meeple:  :@
   - Allograft (x8)  :(y)  C:-)  :green-meeple:  :@
   - TheDoctor_13 (x1)  C:-)  :green-meeple:  :@
* Colorado(1):
   - edarling (x1)  :(y)  C:-)  :green-meeple:  :@
* Wisconsin (1):
   - gamgeefan2 (x1)  :(y)  C:-)  :green-meeple:  :@
* USA East Coast (3):
   - ny1050220 (x1)  :(y)  C:-)  :green-meeple:  :@
   - Carlium (x1)  :(y)  C:-)  :green-meeple:  :@
   - MetalGearHorus / Horus (x1)  :(y)  C:-)  :green-meeple:  :@

 :(y) = paid for map and international shipping
 C:-) = sent via post and tracking number provided
 :green-meeple: = final payment for tube and shipping received
 :@ = delivered

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!

Hi fellow forum members in Europe!

I just received the order today. I was expecting a painstaking process to get the order through Customs but, guess what!, it was delivered straight to my home, no paperwork no nothing, and I only had to pay 6.59€ in cash to the postman as Customs Duties. I checked the tracking page and the package was tagged as NON-DUTIABLE. (Whaaaaaaaat?)

This means the money I had collected including the Customs Duties estimation will help pay the additional boxes/cylinders and the delivery to your countries. Now I have to pass quickly to phase two. This was totally unexpected!  ;D

So far, we had a bank extra cost for €30.55 and Customs Duties for €6.59. This means we saved €154.13 in Customs Duties and VAT. So I have €93,32 left for the delivery of the maps to your countries that where originally meant to pay for the aforementioned taxes. I send the maps and stuff by registered mail. At that point, I will recalculate everything and prepare a balance for each of you.

I would need the full address of the following people to send the corresponding part of the order (please, PM them to me):
* DrMeeple (x1)
* inigomartinez (x1)
* MeepleFan (x1)
* Willem (x5 + extra stuff) - Hub for UK
* Bumsakalaka (x13) - Hub for Slovakia and Czech Republic
* Windekind (x1)
* InsaneLiz (x1)
* KlausiMausi (x3)

In the meantime, while I manage to send the maps and the extra stuff, here you are some pictures:  ;)

1) The box I received. Bumped and soaked in one corner. The goods inside were in perfect condition.



2) The contents of the box... What a magnificent view!

   

3) The Swan Panasia sets in perfect Chinese, for Willem's delight.



4) Each tube contains 5 maps. Hee you can see the contents of one of them...



   



Any comments or suggestions?

EDIT: I subtracted €30.54 pending to be received from Slovakia, so the total amount left is €93.32

€789.53 received - €689.62 paid to Swan Panasia - €6.59 paid for Customs Duties = €93.32 left

Just in case, you may find the Carcassonne Maps rules on WICA. The Taiwan map is also covered.

https://wikicarpedia.com/index.php/Carcassonne_Maps

The Map Chip rules are the same as those for the Germany map: Map Chips allow you to upgrade meeples and increase their majority vote by 1.

The Taiwan map also includes island squares with coats of arms, which were featured only on the Iberian Peninsula until now. When placing a tile on one of those squares, the active player scores 2 points per coat of arms immediately.

Enjoy!
