Pre-orders for Carcassonne 20th Anniversary UK
« on: April 08, 2021, 02:25:01 AM »
As I'm always looking for the opportunity of a merit,
I've collected a few pre-order URLs for Carcassonne 20th Anniversary edition in the United Kingdom.

In no particular order.

Boardgameguru - £40 + £3.75 postage
 https://www.boardgameguru.co.uk/carcassonne-20th-anniversary-edition-101422-p.asp

Zatu - £43 + £3 postage... buy 5 for 5% off etc [I've had terrible service in the past, and Rich The Fish reports bad preorder handling]

Board game hut - £46 + free postage
https://www.theboardgamehut.co.uk/product/carcassonne-20th-anniversary-edition/

ChaosCards - £50 + free post
https://www.chaoscards.co.uk/prod/c/carcassonne-20th-anniversary-edition

Thirsty Meeples - £41 + £4 shipping (free over £50)

MeeplesCorner - $41.95 + £4.99 postage
https://meeplescorner.co.uk/product/carcassone-20th-anniversary-edition-board-game/

Rules of Play - £45 + free postage (OR £40.50 with GEN-BGPRICES) code.
https://rulesofplay.co.uk/products/carcassonne-20th-anniversary-edition

Dice and Destiny - £41.99 + £3 postage
http://www.diceanddestiny.co.uk/products/carcassonne-20th-anniversary-edition/

My general personal experience:
GamesLore have been reliable when I've used them in the past and probably the cheapest if you're considering multiple copies, perhaps in a bulk order.
If you order 3 or more GamesLore works out cheapest currently at around £40 per copy. If you order 7 it drops to around £37

BoardgameExtras is always really reliable, so the extra couple of quid is well spent imho.

Zatu has terrible customer service

[+1 merit from me]
Now: do we preorder from a UK retailer, or do we wait for a Cundco release with eventual promo stuff? :D
Status: currently trying to create the ultimate box for my collection

I think for such a 'special' edition, I'd like a English copy.  But I might be tempted to order a German one, or maybe wait until Essen time if they produce anything around that time this year.

I've pre-ordered at bgextras as well.
 :)
I might get one from Cundco as well, but like Tom said, it would be nice to have a UK version

Cundco may offer English version too, they sometimes do.. I just got H&G in English from there.

Shipping may be high but seems like U.K. preorders appear to work out around £10+ higher anyway than the Euro preorder prices which seem to be settling at around €35 - approx £30.50 currently.

So if anybody finds a European shop selling for €35 with shipping less than €11.50 to U.K. it might be worth considering and mentioning here..  ;)

P.S. +1 for Decar

I emailed ZMan a while back (when the German edition came out) to ask for the release plan for then English version.
They replied that there were unforeseen issues in production, due to the pandemic, and they are expecting to have it released by September  :o

So yeah, it's been so long, and other language editions are so widely available now, it is easier to get one of those :P
