British gentlemen from the big island, I need your help!

G'day!

I am in need of a service, rather quickly.

I want to buy this card game from Amazon.co.uk: Cards Against Humanity: UK edition.

Unfortunately, they don't ship it outside of the UK for whatever reason and it's unavailable in Germany as well QQ

So my plan is to ship it to some gentlemen or lady from the club and PayPal you the shipping cost so you can mail it to me in Germany.

To make it easier harder, for a friends meetup I would like to have this until November 2nd in my hands.

Any volunteers?

Cheers,
H4ndy

A quick google search showed that ebay also lists several instances of this game. Could that be an option?

Oh you're right, there are actual 2-3 people shipping this from the UK instead of the USA. Prices are slightly higher but still OK.

Seems like a good option, gonna check it out in detail this evening when I am home from work.

Mysterious... Why would Amazon have delivery restrictions on this item? Oh well. Sadly I can't help you.
All hail to the tail!

Laughed at those 2 points:
Adapted from the American edition to suit your outmoded culture
0% of proceeds will go to Children in Need

The game itself sounds like it could fit my taste...The UK-Limitation is a strange...thing, though.

Thats why I want this game, it fits perfectly :D

It's restricted because it's only "released" in the US, Canada and UK so far, still don't know why they do a hard region restriction tho.

They have a hidden international store, I just got it as an answer to my complaint to them. Only downside are the 35$ Shipping costs >.> (on top of the 55$ for core-game plus all three expansions). Well it's not that more expensive, dollar's rather weak right now...

I think I will order it there and will create the self-print version for my meetup. Fortunately the core-game is free.

I got a similar problem now, because my TFT screen went down, i need a new power supply. Unfortunately, apparently this seems to be the only offer:
http://www.ebay.de/itm/Genuine-OEM-Moni ... 43b7c9eaf0

Who ships worldwide, but NOT to Germany. Since I live quite closer to the border to Poland, I gotta ask one of my friends if they know one who can be trusted to take my parcel.
Otherwise, I have no idea if theres such thing as a middle-trader who takes a few money to pick up parcels and send them further.

Edit: Problem (hopefully!) solved: Found this page: http://www.aliexpress.com/store/product ... 56050.html

Which ships the delivery for laughable 2$ from HongKong to Germany, and it offers 11% discount. I ordered it now from there, and i'm really excited if this will work out. Delivery time 15-34 days is long, but probably normal for that distance.

I've played this via PDFs that are released and available to download and print yourself.

Of course supporting the creators sounds good to me (and i can buy and ship to you from the UK if still necessary) but I think the ones we downloaded and printed out were from the creator's website? Maybe he's just trying to monetize it now.
Like a sir, Gentlife.

Not really, the core game was always under a Creative Commons license and you could buy it as a physical version as well, but only US and Canada - and now the UK.

I already bought it from their "secret" international store to similar conditions as Amazon.co.uk but thanks for the offer :)
