We put a lot of thought into shipping costs because we wanted to make sure we could make the game available to international backers and ensure we would be able to fulfill their rewards. The game will be shipped with over 200 cards, "you" or "me" signs, instructions, a stiff box, and packing material. We will be shipping the game from the US and have based the international shipping costs on actual quotes.
If the shipping cost doesn't make sense for you, we recommend pledging at the DRAFT YOUR OWN QUESTION level. We will keep you informed about the game's progress and any future changes in our international shipping prices.
