Off-topic:
Hi. I won't make a long thread about prices. Over here in Sweden games seem to cost more in the UK. Over in Germany german games cost very little though english versions of the same game cost more for some reason. The content is the same so it must be a distributor thing? It's rather weird since the same english game can cost much less in the US. So why are everyone in Europe except the germans with german titles screwed? I have no idea.


On-topic:
Airlines Europe cost much less in Germany:
http://www.amazon.de/Abacusspiele-Gmbh-3111-Airlines-Europe/...
Airlines Europe says that there are no necessary in game text. Are all the text even the same in that title and whatever version is sold in English speaking countries? There are even English rules in this one? Price on Amazon is around half price in Sweden, 26 euro vs 500 sek ..

Are there any difference of Rio Grande Power Grid:
http://www.amazon.de/Rio-Grande-Games-240-Power/dp/B0007YDBL...
And 2F-Spiele Funkenschlag:
http://www.amazon.de/2F-Spiele-2FS00001-Funkenschlag-12020/d...

Except what rules come with the game? Are they somehow different versions, have different graphics, one only have the German map or something such? I do understand the currencies read Funkenschlag on one of them but beyond that? Are there any differences?

Somewhat off-topic again:
The German version is somewhat cheaper than the English one here in Sweden. The English one is around the same price in both countries, which is often the case. Vs Germany our prices are sometimes even better.

No-one who has the German Airlines Europe (http://www.amazon.de/Abacusspiele-Gmbh-3111-Airlines-Europe/...) who can tell whatever the cards or anything read in German and whatever there are English instructions to or not?
