I've been wandering around this 'ere site a little while and come across a couple of games that are simply not sold over this side of the water, eg:

The Captain Is Dead

Star Trek Panic

(Notice a theme developing!)

Are there any other really popular games that can't be bought easily here?

Anyone selling the games above?!

Games Lore were selling The Captain is Dead. Its currently out of stock, although they have the expansion so they might restock it again.

Wow, hadn't noticed ANYONE selling it here... That's something I guess... I will keep an eye there...

Any other games worth keeping an eye out for?

Regarding Star Trek Panic. According to this thread, the game is only licensed for sale in North America.

I use boardgameprices.co.uk to check whether a game is available. It's not infallible, but it's a really quick way to check http://boardgameprices.co.uk/item/show/15602/the-captain-is-....

Yes, this was the source of my concern... Although the eBay/Amazon option sounds like an option (maybe not eBay for import fees not paid in advance)

If you have a US address and a "mule", TMG said they had "found" a few copies last month, otherwise, shipping is expensive.

Well, they replied and said that they sold them all at Gencon - but I did e-mail weeks before. Must have got caught in the build up! Shame because a friend is coming back to the UK this week...

Managed to secure Star Trek Panic too.... Progress!

Quite interested in Xenon Profiteer. Meeple's Corner got a few copies in, and they were the only one I've found.

I just bought Xenon Profiteer, from a Danish shop, but have been unable to find the mini-expansion for it in Europe.

I ordered mine "deluxe" version directly from DLP and shipped to my mother in law in the UK.
