I don't usually post about this kind of stuff but I just had to voice my displeasure.

Just ordered the boxed version for an extra £12 or so and was shocked to find that the cost of postage to send this game to me was going to be an extra £30.

So to recap if you want the hardback manual in the UK you have to fork out an extra £42... ridiculous. When I purchased WitW with the hardback manual the postage costs were nowhere near as expensive.

Needless to say it will be the digital version for me.

I feel your pain...

When DC:B was first sold, a year ago, the costs were much lower and I bought the physical manual, and it is gorgeous...
But now apparently Matrix has no European warehouse and the shipping costs to Europe are absurd

This year I bought SC3: War in Europe and also passed the physical manual because the shipping cost alone exceeded 35 Euros...

The pdf manual of DC:B is superb too, of course, and I usually read it on my iPad.

(PS: Check the manual errata, you can find it here (http://www.vrdesigns.net/?page_id=1191). Minor stuff for the most part.)

Don't let this frustration ruin the game, I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.

Regards

Hi there,

Maybe it might be more interesting for you to buy it on Amazon.co.uk ?

Best wishes,
Vic

Zenith postage for anything from the US to UK is extortionate..so not just this game.

I don't buy boxed versions anymore. With books, I like the hard copy but have learned to use the pdf manual or ask questions on the forums for games. Plus, YouTube videos help. I have the wite manual and never even bothered to look at it
