We played a lot of games, but I didn't buy that much.
Most of the games I wanted were too expensive (Yes, I am talking to you Outpost, Trajan, Mil 1049, Colonia...)

Where were the Alea games?
You could play Die Burgen von Burgund and Arthus, but you couldn't buy them? Pity, I would have bought them both.

Why so expensive? I can buy you at home for ca 30€. Why should I pay 36€ at Essen?
