International Orders

All our upgrades ship Internationally to most locations (Europe, US, Canada, South America, Singapore, Oceania). We have shipped to over 28 countries. If your country is not listed as an available destination, or you are unable to check out, please reach out to us.

Due to high prices on shipping of board games we typically do not ship these internationally. We use Australia Post for our international postage which typically have a 9 to 26 day delivery timeframe. For international orders, shipping costs are calculated at checkout. All shipments will be provided with a tracking number and insured with the carrier up to $100

Unfortunately there are certain countries we cannot ship to due to customs regulations. If your country is not available at checkout, please contact us and we can confirm.

Taxes, Duties and Customs

Please note that customs tariffs, taxes or import duties on arrival at the destination country are the sole responsibility of the customer. All our products are zero-rated for tax for international orders. For those in the European union, and in Brazil you may be contacted by customs for processing of your item.

Processing Timeframes

All our items that state are in stock, are physically in stock in our warehouse in Brisbane. We do not drop ship, or indicate we have items that we don't have physical stock of.

Processing time frames are as follows:

  • Board Games and accessories are Next Business Day.
  • 3DLevelup branded items are typically posted 1-3 Business Days.

For 3DLevelup branded items, whilst we have the items in stock, we need to often assemble, sort, quality check and pack your items which can take time. Sometimes our quality check prior to shipment will require us to re-print a small part.

If you have purchased a Pre-Order item (stated in the item name), our processing time is typically 5-10 business days as we need to print your order.

Business Hours

Our business operates Monday to Friday but we try and answer questions from the online chat outside business hours if able to do so. We understand many of our customers are in a very different time zone to us. Shipping drop offs and pickups are also Monday to Friday. 

Delivery Timeframes

For domestic shipping Australia Post typically delivers within 5 business days. We often see deliveries in Brisbane locations take 2 business days.

For international orders it is typically 9-26 days but we have seen this extend out to 35 days to some countries.

Shipment Tracking

Shipment will always have a tracking number for you to be able to check status. You will receive an email with a link to our website where you can view tracking information once your order has been placed. We recommend you also provide your mobile for SMS or an reliable email account for shipping update notifications when you place your order.

If you lose your tracking number or do not see it, please contact us and we can provide. We are with you on the journey and more than happy to assist with shipping enquiries.

Shipping Insurance

All items are automatically insured up to $100 AUD on all orders. If you would like to increase this insurance let us know. We may at our own discretion increase this insurance cover without additional cost.

If you have an issue with shipment, or items damaged in transit, please reach out to us.

As Earth begins to die, it is time for humanity to look Beyond the Sun. 

The faction leaders that once ruled the planet separately, now work together to develop cutting-edge technology and explore the depths of space.

However, only one leader will truly reign supreme in these new worlds. Will it be you?

Beyond the Sun takes you to new worlds as you try to lead your faction off Earth in the 23rd century to new homes in unexplored star systems beyond our solar system.

Game Features:

Each player represents a faction vying for supremacy in the race to colonize new worlds in nearby star systems. These factions have different powers and unique abilities. They come in two versions – Basic and Advanced.  The Basic powers are mostly symmetrical, with only small variations between the various powers.  The Advanced powers are asymmetrical as the unique abilities of each of the factions come through.  Each of these factions is represented by dual-layer player boards that show the abilities of each faction.  All of the resources, population, and other items relevant to each player are tracked and stored on dual-layer player boards. These boards will keep all of the components organized and will keep a casual bump to the table from disturbing the players’ pieces.

Beyond the Sun features attractive art and clean graphic design that is easy to read and understand. The components include custom-made cubes similar to dice from Roll for the Galaxy, which are used to track the status of the population.

Two separate game boards are used to play Beyond the Sun. The first is the main technology game board featuring a technology tree that expands during play. The second board is the exploration board, where the star systems are found, explored, and colonized.

There are dozens of different technology cards, so that each game will be a unique experience. The goals for each game also vary depending on which achievement cards are used in any particular game. The result is endless re-playability and different challenges.
