I’m off for Christmas now so will post any orders placed between 24th - 30th Dec on Friday 30th Dec. Have a good one - Ben :)
We are happy to send our games to customers anywhere in Europe. Purchased items will be well protected with appropriate packaging materials - smaller items like dice will be posted in padded envelopes.
UK Deliveries are usually sent by Royal Mail 2nd Class or 1st class parcel post or Interlink Direct courier for the heavier items.
European Deliveries are usually sent by Royal Mail Airmail for orders up to 2kg or by Interlink European courier for orders above 2kg. Orders larger than this are possible by arrangement - email email@example.com for details.
Delivery method and cost is calculated automatically at checkout and is dependent on the weight (and/or size) of your chosen items.
Useful Tip: Consider breaking your order into two or moe smaller orders (less than 2kg) if you want to avoid the cost of using the courier. Two 2nd class parcels would be £6.50 rather than £9.90 for the courier.
The table below shows the delivery costs you can expect to pay for the various delivery weights:
UK Shipping costs*
|0kg - 1.0kg||Royal Mail 2nd Class Parcel - Delivery aim 3 days||£3.25 GBP|

|2.001kg - 5.0kg or **||Interlink UK Parcel - Delivery aim 1 day.***||£9.90 GBP|
(These prices and weights cover 99% of the orders sent out. As an example, a typical board game in a box usually weighs between 1 and 2 kg.)

** Anything that is larger than a Royal Mail Medium parcel.
*** Courier delivery happens Monday - Friday. If you order on Friday your item will normally be with the courier on Monday for Tuesday delivery.

Shipping Chessex premium dice
Chessex high quality dice are shipped to you in their original presentation cases which include the safety certification pertaining to the choking hazard. Some stores remove this packaging and certificate to save on postage costs (this counts as repackaging) which not only invalidates the safety testing done on the dice, it makes the shop owner liable for any injury caused by them rather than the manufacturer. Games Sesh will not do this, which means you receive the original presentation case and safety certificate, but also incur a slightly higher shipping cost, which we think is the most responsible option.
Important note about shipping costs
Your shipping cost appears at the final stage of the Paypal checkout process at the point you come back from Paypal to Games Sesh to confirm your order.
