There are some great games and expansions that for some reason have never or at least not yet made it as English publications. Sure many of these you can make do with buying the German (or whatever language edition it is) but there' nothing like seeing it on the shelf of your FLGS.

So if there are any games or expansions that you'd really like to see in English add them here.

Don't forget to thumb your favourites to show your support of that title getting a run.


When adding an item think: "is this more worthy of existence as and English edition than Carcassonne: Expansion 7 – The Catapult?"

I would love to get a copy of this. RGG green lit this and then pulled back. I'm not sure why, I'd buy it! Although for some reason this may not be enough for Jay. Hmmm.

The one I had in mind when I started this list. I've been following the thread explaining all the expansions included in this and drooling. The Alea range is so popular, how could this not be published in English?

Another of the Kosmos two player games. I believe this is out of print even in Germany but there is apparent demand for it. I'd like to have a play of it at least!

Update: got a copy in a trade and it is completely language independant. It's a great game and is being enjoyed at my place. I would still like to see a reprint though.

I know Valley Games announced a reprint of this game but it seems to have slipped of the radar. Does anyone know if this has been dropped or is it still being developed?

I believe this is still only available in American. While it's a fun game as-is an English edition more suitable for the rest of us would be MOST welcome. I know quite a few people who are reluctant because of the cultural and language bias.

(Wait, what? whistle )


ps I just read an old note from Northstar saying the boosters are still aimed at the American market because "only a few hundred of the 80,000 units sold went outside America". Er... I'd have said that's largely because the game is only available in American and not so suitable for international English speakers. Cart. Horse.

Really not much chance here, but ANY of the Space Cruiser Yamato/VOTOMS Japanese-only games translated (even badly...) to English would make me happy

I hear that this one may be in the works.

Excellent little game, and playable enough in German, but with just enough language-dependence to make it an irritation.

Maybe I should be careful what I wish for, but boy is this game a bitch to translate! I've been working from both the German and the French editions and it's interesting how different they are. Which leaves me anxious in both senses to see what an American edition would look like.

This is a bit of a cheat because the original Bambus edition is perfectly playable. English versions of the cards were even included in the box.

Kanaloa is a decent game of pick up and make offerings to the gods, with a novel movement mechanic representing changing ocean currents, and Knizia-esque scoring. However, this game is ugly as sin. Any new edition would surely be an improvement, wouldn't it?

Very enjoyable blend of Anno 1503 & Settlers... has just enough German text that an English edition would be wonderful.

It would also be nice if it was easily available.
