Ha! Love that beer!
I just found these and was on my way over to let you know, when I saw you'd already posted about them!
He's so excited he told you twice!
Might get some interesting comments but I wouldn't get the ladies. Then again I guess that's not something I've had to worry about for a while so yeah, these do sound cool!
Depends on the lady. My wife is an enthusiastic D&D player from long before I met her (she worked at WotC before I knew her). My BX table is about a third female (one dragging her boyfriend along). They are out there.
Shipping to the US is added when you go to pledge -- it's nine UKP atop the fifteen. So for US merkins, it is roughly $36 for 125 as of today. The 125 is about 7 and a half square feet of coverage, so it's a decent deal if you want to go for it.
It's a good beer too, when of my favourites.
