German title: Konfliktsimulationen in deutscher Sprache oder mit deutschsprachiger Übersetzung

Why did I create this GeekList?
I prefer games in their original language, if I can understand it. But it can be very helpful for others to have games in the language they are most familiar with, so they can concentrate on the game instead of the foreign language. The author of Item for Geeklist "Let's switch the roles: English games that have not been translated into other languages " had the impression that there are only very few wargames which have official versions or translations in other languages than English, so I thought it would be good to create a list.

Why is this GeekList in English language?
I assume all BoardGameGeek users can read English, otherwise the site would be unusable for them. Maybe this list can be helpful for users, who do not understand German, to find a game suitable for a friend who prefers German. Additionally I want to invite everyone to contribute to this list, even if they do not understand German.

Release: full game, upgrade kit
Source: official
Status: complete

The upgrade kit includes printed rules, reference sheet and cards.
The full game can be ordered with an included upgrade kit, so it becomes a multilingual edition.
The game box already has a German description of the game.

Translated rules for the tactical game are available, but the rules for the strategical game (Empire), the player aids and (understandably) the included book are not translated.

Includes German rules, scenarios and an addendum for the cards.
