While interest in European-style board games has seen tremendous growth in the United States, many games published there are never distributed on American shores. Of course in the internet age, it is possible to order directly from retailers overseas. And a number of the most dedicated gamers make the trek to Essen for the largest annual board game convention. But those methods for purchasing games can be difficult and quite expensive. Online retailer Funagain Games offers you an alternative. They’ve just received a shipment of almost 400 different titles from Germany. But if you’re interested, I suggest you move quickly. Several have already sold out.

Also, if you have any particular recommendations for those of us who are not familiar with these games, please let us know in the comments.
