Quick note for my Canada backers
So I just got back from your great country and wanted to give you all a quick heads up:
1. So since I went into Canada and mailed the games from within, no one will have to pay any additional VAT now (at least, thats how I think it works - being a US citizen, I only know about VAT from what I've read online). When I launched the campaign, only the EU was "customs friendly", but by doing this I think you've all been covered by when I had to pay duty upon entering the country.
2. When I got to the post office I quickly realized (to my horror) that it was quite a bit different than how our post offices are set up. They really don't have any boxes on hand (they only had 3 on sale that would actually fit the game). Here in the US, if you go to USPS, there are tons of boxes in a variety of sizes that you can use - flat rate boxes and priority by weight - and this is what I used to ship my US copies. So anyways, I didn't have much time to figure this out, as I was only going to be in Canada one day (and I had already arrived there late) and the store was eventually going to close. [In case you're wondering why I didn't have the boxes pre packed before entering Canada was because I needed to allow Customs to search the games as I entered, and didn't want to create any trouble with them since they could have jeopardized the whole process). Anyways, so we went to every nearby store looking for a solution in terms of how we were going to wrap these games. So when you get your copy, if you're wondering why its so unusually wrapped its because the solution we came up with was definitely improvised.
