Can someone translate that list? It's hard to be jealous when you can't read the list.

I think that list is far from what you could call "complete". A better attempt to do the job has been made at the spielbox forum (in german again):
http://www.spielbox.de/phorum4/read.php4?f=1&i=202410&t=2024...&

- Ghost Stories additional tile and 5 additional cards (only 750x)
- A Castle for All Seasons wooden case limited to 600 and 6 additional cards
- Space Alert some components made from glas
- Agricola: Through the Seasons
- Agricola the L-Deck
- Agricola Z-Deck is not exactly for free but 1€ which is quite near.
Same goes for the playcards in Agricola Style for Euchre/Doppelkopf (2€/3€)
- Catan A Terry Prettchet Map, also a Map of NRW (Northrhine-westfalia for 2€)
- Deukalion conqueror of the minotaur / maelstrom of the Charybdis
- Flinke Feger: Die magischen Pentagramme Gitty Geisterhand
- Formula D Catalina Santana & Porsche
- Jamaica 3 special cards
- Keythedral Expansion
- Monopoly A Perry Rhodan Map
- Verhext! the sizzling Theriak
- Zooloretto some special & the savings book

Thanks Tyrfing! I heard there was also some new Power Grid Power Plant giveaway too. Are you aware of that? Are you at Essen right now?

You can try using http://translate.google.com/translate_t#

However I have to say that some game titles get screwed up quite a bit yuk

I tried copying the direct links here, but somehow BGG screws up the links cry

Thanks Carpenoctem. I am officially bummed that I am not going to Essen. Such goodies I am missing out on. Hopefully publishers will make these specials available for retail sometime soon.

This is because game titles often aren't just translated directly between different language releases.
