Hello!

This October my in-laws are going on a riverboat cruise on the Rhine and want to bring back a German board game for me! Does anyone know of any excellent games that you can only find in Germany/Europe?

REQUIREMENTS:
-Not published in US now or in near future
-Must support 2P
-Mostly language independent
-No wargames
-Eurogame preferred

Extra credit goes to someone for recommending a great board game store for my in-laws to look out for. Thank you!

Heartland

Ironically, it's about farming in the American Midwest but was never released in the US (to my knowledge). Designed by Jeffrey Allers who also designed the excellent New Amsterdam

You might want to try going on Amazon.de (accessible in German and English) to see what's available.

Die Legenden von Andor: Chada & Thorn hasn't been published in English yet. It is a cooperative card game for 2 players, mostly language independent and the rules (and card texts) have been translated and can be downloaded from the files section.

Great call on Helvetia. Glen More by Cramer is one of my all-time favorites so it's definitely at the top of my list! Thanks!
