I didn't put this in the Hot Deals section since these prices are no longer available. Just wanted to post here to say that this order, from Nov 30, 2011, was another success and it's worth it to keep an eye on Amazon.de. I order from Amazon.de games that are hard to get here, or are good deals there, or both. I ordered the following (all prices in Euros):
Sioux, 7.25
Seeland, 15.18
Chicago Gangsters, 5.03
Die Säulen von Venedig, 13.43
Der Verrückte Räuber, 4.57
Räuber, 7.33
Gold!, 5.03

The exchange rate was 1.33 Euro for $1 which is very good.

It took 21 days for the box to get here, which is a bit slower than the 14 days in previous orders, but I'm not complaining. No problems with the shipment either.

A caveat: orders must be fulfilled by Amazon to get the fixed shipping. In some cases the game had to be sold by Amazon as well to get fixed shipping.

You got this backwards - 1 Euro is about $1.30 or so. Those are still good prices though.

2 questions:

How much is the fixed shipping to the USA?

Can you use USA Amazon.com gift cards on Amazon.de?

Fixed shipping is 14 euros. I'm not sure about gift cards but if I had to guess I would say that you could not use them.

Oops. Thanks for the correction. Amazon certainly got it right!

Also not sure about the cards.
