I may be bound for Europe with instructions to spend an obscene amount of money on board games. (I know, it sucks.) What I would be looking for are: 1) great games; 2) in English or largely language interdependent; 3)that are and will likely long remain unavailable in North America. Unfortunately, I have very little idea of what to buy. That is why I come to the best source in the world BGG users. Give me stuff for heavy gamers, intro gamers, and kids.

$69 won't buy all that many games.

z-man games?

Get Ubongo 3d if it's cheap. It's $65 from gamesurplus.com. May be worth getting Luna (not reprinted in the US), $50 from gamesurplus, and kakerlaken Poker Royal.

I'd also get Hanabi, the best co-op, and Kaispeicher expansion to Die Speicherstadt.

Dexterity:
Hamsterrolle and Safranito are pricey imports in the US.

Find Himalaya and the expansion too, if you can.

Don't go. Add the money you saved on a plane ticket to the 'obscene' amount you already have and then spend your 'super obscene' amount of money shipping stuff over from Germany.

Use Boardgameprices.com to find games that are cheaper in Europe but brace yourself, you may have to look for quite a long time.
