Hi all,

A gamer friend is returning home to Germany for a while and asked if I wanted anything when he returns.

I thought I'd ask if there were any games only/readily available in Germany that can't be found stateside, that are super high on your want list.

Off the top of my head I can't think of anything, but it seemed a crime not to take advantage of all of your knowledge.

Cheers!

Funny... I have a friend coming to visit from Germany and I wondered the thing but in reverse: What could I give her to take back home when she leaves?

I'll always recommend picking up a copy of Limes whenever someone visits Germany, as that seems to be hard to get for a fair price (at least in the US). It's very small and light, so you still have space for many other games. ;)

Sadly Walnut Grove is no longer widely available over here either since a couple of weeks, otherwise I'd have urged you to get that while you still can... :/

Glen More is getting an English reprint too, so no need to fetch a German copy of that either. Guess Limes is the only game I've got left to recommend to visitors, huh.

First games I can think of are Nauticus (you can find it for less than 20 euro) and Council of 4 (less than 10 euro).

I don't know how distribution is for Karuba: The Card Game.

If that is hard to find in the US, I would recommend that game. If you like very light games, that is.

My friend just ordered 6 nimmt! from U.S. Amazon, but it was shipped from Germany. So get that one in Germany.

I already own Cities. I've heard there are some definite difference, but I'm not sure it warrants duplication.

If you (or anyone) has played both Cities and Limes, I'd appreciate your thoughts.
