We're hoping the international attention here helps justify a fulfillment company's partnership for a future printing. We're on track to squarely beat our past projects' campaigns, so maybe we'll pass whatever tipping point we didn't before.
It's super cool to see how much of a global hobby board gaming is. Likewise for the Kickstarter experience. We're trying to grow into that space and gain access to the same resources the larger publishers have so everyone can play our games. Our ethos favors creative control over ease and money We're happy to swim against the current instead of presenting watered down ideas through a larger company. Hopefully, we can make those two desires less mutually-exclusive.
One thing I've not seen mentioned, and it's understandable, but VAT charges. I'm in the UK but many countries have their own customs charges / import duties. I'm assuming this hasn't been considered
The only real way of sorting this is usually using a fulfillment service that handles that, for instance having stock delivered to somewhere in the EU and then distributed internally
Not sure if you'll be able to do this, and it's appreciated that you're doing your best to resolve these issues. Board Gaming being such a world wide community it's always great for all concerned if it's as cheap as possible
I believe some times if enough people from say the EU or wherever show an interest, then a fulfillment company will of course show more interest, but it can be a catch 22 where if it's too expensive people wont pledge so therefore there's not enough people to warrant enough interest
