It would be awesome to get a group buy for Alchemists plus its expansion Alchemists: King's Golem now that it is out, similar to the Betrayal at House on the Hill base game plus expansion. I think it would see a lot of interest!
Exciting news group! We’re happy to report that all of the orders have been shipped out and are now on the way to you! Please allow 24-48 hours for tracking to get into the shipper's system and start updating.

Thanks again for joining the drop with the community. We submitted the group’s order with the vendor for the Alchemists Board Game shortly after the drop ended and they have begun preparing it for shipment.
Once the group’s order is ready at the vendor’s location, they will ship the packages individually to you as soon as possible.
Once we receive confirmation regarding the shipping schedule from the vendor, we will provide you guys with updated information on the status of your package.
Expect an update from us on 9/21 or sooner.
I do own this game and finally got to play it for the first time this weekend and I was very impressed. We had a lot of fun with it and the components and artwork are top notch. For people considering this purchase, keep in mind that it is a pretty complicated game, and I'd strongly suggest watching "rahdo runs through alchemists" on YouTube before playing to get an idea of whether this game is for you and to better understand how to play it.
Also, Massdrop, you set the game up wrong in your images ;)

Nice catch on the misplaced artefacts and forage items! ultra deserves a free one!
$36.80 shipping to Canada?? Why would anyone pay 111% of the price of the product on shipping? This equates to nearly $70 CAD for a game (not including duty that you will likely have to pay) that you can buy for $52-$60 at a local board game store.
Massdrop is not going to see more interest in board games unless they seriously drive the shipping price down.

I'm sorry if the term "lazy" is offensive to some. But the truth is, many people are willing to pay a higher price on here or on Amazon simply because they don't want to take the time to look for a better price elsewhere. Call it what you will.
I'm not suggesting you buy it from one of the alternatives unless you are spending enough to reach the free shipping threshold. That would be stupid and I was very explicit in saying you'd need to spend $100+ for the free shipping.
Literally the ONLY advantage to buying it here is that you can get the game, and nothing else, for 1-2 dollars less than Amazon. But you'll wait 3+ weeks to get it. Now if Massdrop could figure out how to get this stuff shipped quicker, *maybe* it'd be worth it to buy through them. But for all intents and purposes, many of the "deals" on Massdrop are not "deals" at all, they're just a way to get a single item at a "meh" price because you don't want to pay for Prime or spend $100+ on a single game order to get much better prices elsewhere.
We are talking about Canada. Massdrop shipping charges make every board game deal completely irrelevant for us. We can get any game at amazon.ca paying full price and shipping and still save $20 or $30 from Massdrop price.

Hey everyone, we were able to secure another 35 games pushing the drop limit to 100 games.
first time considering joining a massdrop,
How are shipping costs calculated? More specifically: shipping to Texas.
also, is there any way to check shipping rates to a location other than where you are browsing from?
thanks for the help

i believe shipping is standard per country
miniature market is now around $41

Got my game in the mail today, thanks so much!!
Quick update for the group, we spoke to the vendor and they are scheduled to get their allocation of units in slightly before the middle of next week. Once the units arrive the vendor will get individual orders packed up and ready for shipment. As soon as the vendor lets us know that units are picked up we will upload tracking for the group.
Thanks for your patience and expect an update from us on 7/15 or sooner if something comes up.
Quick update for the group. We are in contact with the vendor and awaiting updated shipment estimates from them. We have a call scheduled first thing tomorrow morning and should get a bit more visibility in regards to when we can expect these to ship out from them directly to you.
We will update the group as soon as we receive confirmation that these have been packed and shipped. Currently we expect that these will ship inline with the expected ship date listed in the drop description page.
Thanks for your patience and expect an update from us on 7/10 or sooner if something comes up.
Hey! Looks like i missed this!:( So that i know what to expect in the future (my first time on this site), would this be possible for Canadian customers such as myself ? And if yes, what would be the additional shipping costs?

dang, if i weren't broke (and considering buying the e-element keyboard), i'd definitely jump on this drop.
I've heard good and bad about this game. The good seems to be that there is definitely a lot of nuance to this game and therefore it has replayability and some variation of tactics that can make for a successful playthrough. The bad I've heard is that A) the smartphone integration is sort of gimmicky and, if you don't have one, puts you at a disadvantage compared to everyone else and B) the game professes to be one thing but in practice is something else, meaning your first playthrough is almost more of a "learning the curve" experience and you'll have to play again to appreciate the strategic nuances mentioned earlier. As a gamer friend already owns a copy, I'm probably sitting this one out, but hopefully folks find this feedback useful.

Hey thanks for giving your opinion. We hope more people continue to do the same especially for board games, so people will have more insight into if they would enjoy playing them.
I've so far only played it once but this is my experience as well. It's a well made, quite fun game.
$40.20 shipping to the netherlands....
If you are close to the border ... Use a receiver only costs me $2 to receive a parcel.
40$ shipping ... -___-
$36.80 to ship to canada?! seriously?!
Miniature Market has this for $46.72 including shipping (with free shipping at $99), and Amazon for $45.09 with free shipping.
Massdrop's lowest price is $39.96, including shipping.
