Can anyone confirm that the UK version will be the grand master edition aswell or will it come with separate Chess box like the title is indicating.

They also have it at EBGames Australia for $168. No word on N. America release. Most likely they won't release it here because PC sale isn't as good as they used to.

Hmm...I did look at this and I found out Game will only carry chess box while other vendor will be carrying figurine and artbook.

Chess box will be named Limited Edition while the Figurine/Artbook will be collectors edition. If you want complete Grandmaster edition, you probably need to get both.

I guess I will have to pre-order the Gran master edition from Germany as it will work out cheaper than buying both separately here, also one complete box is better.

Thanks Scourdx

I'm preordering from Germany since Game won't ship it to N. America because it is heavier than 1kg. I'm surprise the total price comes to 129.99 Euro including shipping. Is that normal in Germany?

Does the €130 euro include taxes, the tax in your country is much lower than those in Europe so the product price is low, also delivery from Euro to NA is cheap, it's the other way round when it's expensive.

I got a final price, it does say 129.99 Euro with 14 Euro subtract from the original price. Without shipping it will cost €116. Weird. I assume the custom will charge me about $25-40 once the shipment gets here.

The last time I ordered from Amazon the taxes were all calculated for me beforehand and I was charge by Amazon during dispatch.

Tax in Germany is 19% on goods, so the pre tax price is €104.80, I'm guessing the tax in your region is 7% which makes the price €115.99.

Therefore you should not pay any taxes, well according to my calculation above anyway.
