I have a few games that I am interested in that seem to be a problem getting them over here in the US (some US retailers have carried these games but they don't any longer or haven't in a while).

I am thinking of creating an order from a game store in Germany. I was just wondering what others would order if they have, could, or will order from overseas.

I am not looking at games that will eventually come to the US (if they have a release date for the US) but ones that most likely will never see the states. Please add to this if you like. Thanks.

This is one that I have played a few times and have really enjoyed (thanks Matt!). I saw that a couple of US retailers have carried it but they have no idea when they will be getting more. This is one that I would really like to have and may order soon.

This game has really intrigued me. One US retailer had it for a bit but I was too slow in making a decision to actually order it. I saw it on a geeklist and did some research and this looks really good.

Since it looks like it was created by the same guy that made Zooloretto and Valdora, I am willing to take a gamble on this game. I read through the directions and it looks like a game I would definitely enjoy.

Unlikely to see a US release due to the magnets used as playing pieces. Can be found imported at online retailers from time to time.

I think Piece o' Cake qualifies for your list. It's a very enjoyable filler that offers a bit of a strategic and tactical challenge. I'm not sure if Winning Moves, or anyone else, is releasing this in the US, but I haven't heard of it yet and it was released at Spiel '08 in Essen and hasn't showed up yet - as far as I know.

I keep hoping I'll find the expansions IN GERMAN, but the Mayfair crap is so prevalent here in the US... sheesh! I'm going to have to pester a German-speaking friend to help me order them online from a German company I guess...

Here's another Essen 2008 release that I haven't heard any news about it getting a US version any time soon. It's a good game, but there's a lot of competition when it comes to dice game fillers, and this might be surpassed by its older sibling Heckmeck am Bratwurmeck, but I enjoy both.

2007 Kinderspiel des Jahres Winner Beppo der Bock is a fun kids action game, that can (as with all previous Spiel des Jahres winners) be had for a bargain from most German stores.

Fiese Kühe is another kids game that hasn't seen a US release. It's a pretty fun race game for 2-4 players, racing to get their cows back from the field to the barn while dodging cow patties and blocking each other as best they can. Kids adore the cute cow playing pieces and of course the cow patties.

The game can only be purchased in some stores in Spain (whether physical or on-line ones) and a single store outside Spain (in Bordeaux, France). I can assure you it ain't gonna be available in the US.
