Anyone sells Gustav besides Schach Niggemann ?

Post by Dann Corbit » Fri May 10, 2019 10:57 pm

They won't sell it to me because it is 49.50 euro and the minimum order is 50 euro. I don't see anything else I want to buy.
Also, the shipping for the CD is $27.50. Seems high to me.

Is there someplace else I can buy it? Or is Schach Niggemann the only distributor?
Taking ideas is not a vice, it is a virtue. We have another word for this. It is called learning.
But sharing ideas is an even greater virtue. We have another word for this. It is called teaching.

Not for you sir. You are 42 cents shy, ignoring our shipping cost.
We have the CD's hand carried by beautiful princesses from the island of Toga.

I've gotten lucky with a few of my Uber eats drivers like the one today that i rate marriageable :) Still it doesn't cost 24.95 for delivery but then again most of them are not keepers.

Just add these two items and you're good to go for additional €0.50 total

Out of interest, how does it compare with Chest/Chestuci apart from the GUI? What do you get for the money?

I never bought Gustav before. So I cannot compare it to anything.
Gustav is a mate solver, like Popeye or ChestUCI.
Gustav is a lot better on some kinds of problems.

I think Mike gave you a very good idea, no fuss, it saves you money !

If you don't want "those", just throw them away... 8-)
