I'm at Fun Alkeste- all alone. If Cafe'ers want to join, we can have a mini-cafe-Poker.

Ouch. That really stings seeing as how a complete 300 piece clay chipset with metal case, 2 decks of cards, and 5 dice only sells for $60. I didn't even have to pay shipping with the promo I did (then again, the chipset was free too). Pretty sure that with the site I use, customs is less than $30 to Canada.

Glad you got your chips Mookie ;-D ! Sorry the price was so outrageous. :-/

There was no charge for shipping and if I lived in the US I would have gotten it for $0. But they declared the value to be $175 or something like that - so they had to pay duty and then UPS charged a brokerage fee on top of that so it came out to over $50. I don't blame the promoter, I blame UPS.

8-o

I'd have told them they were nuts. 8-o

You can buy the set in any store here for $100 and off the net for $60. $175 value? Crazy. 8-o

I blame Canada! Blame Canada!

Hehe :-b . South Park reference, just in case you didn't get it. ;-)
