International shipping is both painful and expensive, but it's still a bit disappointing that this only ships to the USA.

As far as I can see, the options for a US kickstarter these days are:
  • US (or US/Canada) only
  • Huge individual shipping costs (plus customs collection charges in the UK)
  • A third-party reshipper (like Pegasus Spiele who reshipped OGRE and are currently doing the DFRPG in Europe) - which is cheaper than individual shipping but only if the volume is quite large

Given how much people get annoyed with individual shipping costs (I know I've been guilty of this), it may well have been felt that for a relatively small project like this it's not worth the hassle.

If this is successful, the game will be offered to distributors and retailers.

If you wish to participate in the Kickstarter project, there are services that handle accepting packages and forwarding to other nations. They get better rates than we do because their shipping volumes are much higher than our own.
