My German friend is coming to visit next week. She can bring me 2-3 games. Which games should I ask for?

Note I don't speak a word of German, anything more than minor language conversion is out.

I held this game in my hand twice while I was in Germany and Poland last month. But at those times I had no room in my suitcase. When I finally had room at the end of my trip, I couldn't find the game. Drat!

Note: I found it in Gdansk, Poland, and in Berlin, Germany. In Berlin it was at Galeria Kaufhof. But the Galeria Kaufhof in Hamburg didn't have a copy. I hope your friend lives in a large city.

Get this and I'll be jealous. Isn't that motivation enough?

Yes, I have boardgames in the trunk of my car and would want to play now!

I just ordered this game from Amazon.de because I could not find it here for a decent price, or get someone to trade for it. (My computer doesn't do automatic translations, so I had to keep going to google translator, which in and of itself is hilarious in my book.)

It is designed by Stefan Feld, and that alone would be enough in my group of gaming friends. More than that, it is a good worker placement game and if you don't like it can be traded for a good deal more on BGG.

This one is so small 'friend' can make it 3-4 board games instead. Cheap, fun. Virtually language independent.

This is a pretty good Euro, and it's not widely available in the US.

The game is language-independent, and an English rulebook is included.
