Three Kingdoms Redux

It's a fantastic 3-player Euro in a historical Chinese setting. There is too much to say about it in this post, as I am at work, but check it out. Doesn't get much more unique than this while still having finely tuned gameplay.

You're looking for a medium/heavy unusual game and you love history and philosophy...
Instantly makes me think of Sierra Madre Games. They do very small print runs that frequently sell out. They have a few games up for preorder. Looking at your preferences, check out Pax Renaissance. It's a card game that explores religion, politics, and economics during the Renaissance. I haven't played it just yet, but it's siblings Pax Porfiriana and Pax Pamir are incredible.

They still have Pax Porfiriana in stock on their web store.

They are also based in Germany, so I imagine it would not be too hard to get a hold of it.

Edit: A blog post by one of the designers was just posted recently. It looks like an exciting game!

If you want unusual try Duel of Ages II.

How To : List your Collection and rate games (with screen shots)

My advice, not that you asked for it, is to go for something usually brilliant that'll hit the table and set it on fire often.

Have you considered Terra Mystica? With 14 different player factions in the base game box, it offers very much to explore for many plays before players get tired of it (if they like it). It works best with 4 or 5 players, but the first time your group plays it the game will last 3 hours.

7 Wonders is a good game to have in any collection, for those times when you have 5, 6, or 7 players who want to all play one game together. It is not heavy, but it takes playing through one full game (40 minutes) to understand how to make good choices.

Shogun. The combat system is very unusual and the rest of the game is great, too, even if not unusual.

Alchemists is really unique, as well.

Different. FOR THE CROWN. A combination of Dominion and chess. Instead of buying victory points, you're buying chess pieces (some regular, some weird moving)to beat your opponent on the chess board. The buying of pieces and movement of chess pieces happen concurrently; i.e., you don't buy all your chess pieces first then play a game of chess.
