Amazon.de lowered the price to 22,90 euro, but I still don't know if it is worth buying. Any insights anyone?

None of the games you have rated bear much of a resemblance to Skybridge, with the possible exception of Rumis. Also, your ratings are so heavily skewed to high numbers, I can't really say how much you would like it -- you like almost everything! So here's a quick subjective review rom someone who likes the game:

The game looks beautiful, and is itneresting, but it is not elegant. On each turn you play a piece, but it has to go on the lowest spot on the board... unless it is the same color as the piece you're placing, in which case it can go on the next-lowest place. The scoring is simple, and the use of skybridges to score multiple columns is cool. There are a lot of opportunities for interesting tactical thinking, though, at least in my experience, strategic planning is not possible. If you don't mind having to remind your firends fairly often why they can't play their piece where they want to play it, and you are looking for a lighter abstract with really really nice pieces, I would recommend that you get it. It also serves admirably as tapbletop art for your home.

I decided to get it, and I'm glad I did, because the price went up again after my order . I really like Rumis, I've been playing with it for days now, perhaps I just like to play with wooden blocks .

It will arrive tomorrow, and then it's playtime again .

I will be looking at Die Aufsteiger and Cathedral in a while as well .

I'll post a review of this in the near future but I agree with Jason that there is less control strategic control here (or at least it is much harder to grasp) than there is in some other games in the series.
