I am one of the many obsessed with the Alea games...
I have bought some of them, loved them all and want to complete my collections.
I am listing the ones I own, and would love you Alea lovers to comment on which is your favorite and, most importantly, which of the ones I am missing are most necessary (based on price, availability, gameplay, etc)
I don't know what makes these games my favorite, and a joy to collect (read obsession)...if it is the wonderful components, graphics, gameplay whatever.
Please add your favorite Alea and comment on what I should get next and why!
Thanks!

P.S. Princes of Florence may be the best available of those unowned, but I get to play it regularly as a friend owns it, so I can sate my hunger periodically

#1, hard to find. I own the English edition and it
cost me $60, but I find it well worth it.
One of my very favorites.

#5, just recently purchased, German edition (only one available?)
The translation here on the 'Geek is perfect, no language barrier to bother me (I don't read German, unfortunetly...I may change that )
Maybe not on the level with PR, Ra, etc, but a fun game, great with 4-5

#6, this one just needs to be played with the right group. People who like to have a 'lil fun
Strategy follows with shrewd play.
I like it alot, but not my favorite Alea.

#7, the mother-of-all games right now.
I actually would prefer to play Ra or PoF (I play Princes of Florence regularly, although I don't own it...yet...), but an absolute masterpice for sure.
This one will be tough to bring down from its lofty pedestal.
