(Edited to show price drop of Fresko to 17.79 - possibly for German buyers only due to postage options, but even so that is a ridiculous price for a really good game... )

Just to add to the previous thread on Strasbourg, there seem to be a lot of good prices on Amazon.de at the moment.. sorry if I'm repeating an old thread but thought it was worth sharing.

Here are a few that jumped out at me, language free gameplay and prices in euros.. Not checked but most should be delivered by Amazon which seems to cap UK postage around 4-6 pounds... so a great deal methinks...

21.99 Lancaster http://www.amazon.de/Queen-Games-6072-Lancaster-Brettspiel/d...

17.73 The Cave http://www.amazon.de/Pegasus-51940G-Cave-deutsche-Ausgabe/dp...

18.90 Milestones http://www.amazon.de/Pegasus-Spiele-54545G-Milestone/dp/B007...

19.44 The Speicherstadt http://www.amazon.de/Pegasus-Spiele-54515G-Speicherstadt-Bre...

14.45 Santiago de Cuba http://www.amazon.de/Pegasus-Spiele-54500G-Santiago-Cuba/dp/...

17.79 Fresco http://www.amazon.de/Queen-Games-60591-Fresko/dp/B0037LRUMU/...

16.65 Pergamon http://www.amazon.de/Eggert-Spiele-33111-Pergamon/dp/B004NE4...

11.99 Thurn and Taxis http://www.amazon.de/Schmidt-Spiele-Thurn-Taxis-Jahres/dp/B0...
(+ expansion for 7e http://www.amazon.de/gp/product/B000LN5QW8/ref=pd_luc_sim_01...)

(this is more useful for German buyers as it's from a 3rd party. The amazon delivered version is 17.83)

20.00 K2 http://www.amazon.de/Unbekannt-HE344-Heidelberger-Spieleverl...

23.19 A la carte http://www.amazon.de/Heidelberger-Spieleverlag-198-%C3%80-Ca...

15.99 Alhambra http://www.amazon.de/Palast-Alhambra-Jahres-Spieler-Jahren/d...

7.95 Rhino Hero http://www.amazon.de/Haba-4092-SuperRhino/dp/B004MXRDRY/ref=...

14.98 Kingdom Builder http://www.amazon.de/Queen-Games-6083-Kingdom-Builder/dp/B00...

13.99 Carcassonne http://www.amazon.de/Carcassonne-Spiel-des-Jahres-2001/dp/B0...

I was thinking of posting something similar. I'm starting to get a lot more alerts on Amazon.DE. I pushed a lot of my thresholds down, but I'm starting to see stuff appear. I suspect it's a clear out by publishers as they enter the 4th Quarter with new product.

Shoot for the moon. Even if you miss, you'll land among the stars, where you will be forced to drift aimlessly farther into the vast, empty abyss of space until a lack of food, water and oxygen causes you to succumb to Death's cold embrace.

What would that even be? Amazon sell thousands of games in one form or another.

Here's another bargain...

I meant a full list of noteworthy bargains. But nevermind, I'll look through it myself and post it here if I find anything worthy.

Are we sure that Lancaster comes with English rules, etc, because that's an amazing price.

The only thing putting me off is that, if something's missing from the box, Queen Games will shrug it off and ignore my pleas for replacements.

if it's supplied by Amazon and is deficient in any way, you exercise your DSR rights against Amazon.

As for language, it's a bit of a lottery. Sometimes it will clearly be multilingual, other time clearly German only, other times indicated multilingual but supplied German.

I suspect lancaster will be the german version (Queen Article Number XXXX, I think multilingual Queen article numbers are 5 digit, typically XXXX1.

When I bought a clearly indicated multilingual Edition of Shogun, but AmAzon supplied the german version (twice - no problem at all getting a free return for replacement; I gave up when the 2nd one was also German) Queen quickly sent me the English rules - BUT I had bought the English version.

English rules are readily available though.

I reckon there will be a lot of bargains like this pre- and post-Essen, especially from Queen. However, they sell out quickly.

Edit: sorry for typos, keyboard problem)

None that isn't outdated after 2 hours :)

I found the best way to track Amazon prices is to use a price tracker (like the camel) and let it watch what you're interested in. By using browser plugins or having the camel sync with your Amazon wishlists, you can comfortably build your tracking list while browsing Amazon. Then you just have to get used to a camel telling you when to buy games. Modern times...

Much better than having the "Old Cow"* tell me when not to buy games ....

Thanks for the tip-off It's in German but that is not a problem as it doesn't affect the gameplay. I picked up that and the potentially excellent drinking.... I mean, kids game Super Rhino

Super Rhino is great. I've ordered around 5 copies at one time in the past and stuck them in our cupboard we use for storing last minute gifts for our kids to take to birthday parties.

Thurn and Taxis is actually 17.83 direct from Amazon, the price in the first post is from a 3rd party marketplace merchant.

My copy of Lancaster which I purchased from amazon.de earlier this year came with English rules on the flip side of the German rules. It did not come with an English set up guide so I downloaded that from the Queen website and printed.

The game is identical to the English version - possibly even the same box lid with only the back of the box different. I see no reason why you should want to spend over £40 on a UK sourced version.

I'd be tempted on K2 but it's German language. That said I don't know if it affects much beyond the rulebook. Maybe just printing off English version rules would do the trick?

You'd be fine, it's all images on the cards you play and the board.

And it's a great game

My copy of Lancaster did not have English rules - or the knights stickers, but that's not a big issue.

Get Broad Peak as well if you can as it provides nice variation to the game.

Good to know! I've never ordered off amazon.de so I may have to register and see if that free shipping counts on a UK delivery address.

You won't (often these days, if at all) get FREE shipping from amazon.de, but their shipping rates are not at all bad. Just be careful that you are ordering from amazon themselves, not a third-party seller (although occasionally some of them have reasonable shipping costs).

If you use Chrome's auto-translate feature, do beware that by being helpful it can make German editions LOOK English, by translating the title of the game too.

You are also given the option of paying in €, leaving your card-issuer to determine the £ cost or in £ leaving amazon to determine the exchange rate - Amazon do tell you exactly how many £ you'll be paying. Do take the trouble to check now and again which is the better deal depending on the 'foreign loading' fees your card issuer charges in addition to making a mark-up on the exchange rate. Currently I pay amazon in £ as it's about the same result, but I know for sure how many £ I'm paying.

Cheers for the warnings! Good note about the translation feature. I normally skim read a page in the native language to see the fragments I can understand before hitting the button.

In any event, because I'd already emailed Esdevium I thought I'd drop another line asking about K2 English reprints for the UK. So maybe that'll have something come out of it.

Not in a great rush for K2, but definitely high on my list.

UPDATE: Ollie at Esdevium came back super quick and helpful - he didn't know of any reprints coming, though didn't rule it out of course. Given that, I dived on the German version there. Came to £21.87 with postage

Thanks for the heads-up. Couldn't resist The Cave at that price. I'm definitely eating into next month's budget already though.

Don't forget to download The Cave soundtrack too! Really sets the tone of the night
