Just wanted to let people know that the Fantasy Flights Holiday Sale is on now until Nov 28th. I mentioned this a year ago so I thought I'd remind folks who have been waiting for cheaper games to come back:

Thanks for the notification - there are some games I'd really like to get during this sale, but for some reason shipping to Canada is prohibitively expensive... I found 3 games worth $35USD I wanted to get, but the shipping cost is $38USD+. I have no idea why US retailers charge so much for shipping to Canada. I've started buying items online from the UK, simply because their shipping costs for items are way less.

That is just crazy! You would think that shipping rates should be close unless there are some crazy duties to cross the border. (Which shouldn't be the case with NAFTA, right?

You'd think. You'd be wrong. Shipping to Canada is expensive and has duties.
