So, i'm going to Germany for two weeks, leaving Chicago on the 19th. I'll be in Hameln (and Hanover on the weekend) and if anyone knows good games stores there, let me know!

I am looking for some games to bring back with me. I don't speak German, so it needs to be fairly language-independant as far as the cards/components go. And hopefully it's something not readily available in the USA, since otherwise I could just get it here (unless there's a German version of a game that is far superior in component quality to an American release). I have a couple games I'm planning to look for already, but suggestions are the whole point of the list!

Thanks,
JoeyHemlock

This is one that I have heard great things about, and it doesn't appear to be TOO languange-dependant...

Okay, I really like the artwork in the German version, even if it IS readily available in the USA... And it wouldn't hurt as trade bait in the future...

from what I've heard, this is *much* cheaper to purchase in Germany. From what I've heard. And it's heavy, so shipping is expensive. Not so if it is in a suitcase.

And pick me up one too, 'k? I'm conviently located in St. Louis. Thanks.

Antike must be my new favorite game. I played it a couple times at BGG.CON, and I desperately want to get a copy. If you should happen to pick one up, and when you get back to Chicago send it to me... I would be forever in your debt!

Seriously though, if this is a possibility, please contact me via PM.

Since Caylus is the 'next big thing' as far as everyone's concerned... you might do well to pick that up.

I bought it in Germany and me and my friends fell in love with Goa from the first sight. Personaly I think it's better than Puerto Rico.
