Spielpreise

Ich habe eben die deutschen Spiele Siedler von Catan und Carcassonne bestellt. Zum Glück habe ich die Preise sowohl auf Amazon.co.uk wie auf Amazon.de untersucht – sie sind viel billiger in Deutschland! Ich habe zuerst gedacht, Spiele seien also viel teurer in Großbritannien, aber so ist es nicht:

Spiel Amazon.co.uk Amazon.de
GBP EUR EUR
Siedler von Catan 22,90 33,87 20,00
Carcassonne 14,99 22,17 10,99
Monopoly 11,17 16,52 24,99
Scrabble 13,74 20,32 29,99

Es scheint mir, dass deutsche Spiele in Deutschland billiger sind, und umgekehrt. Nur merkwürdig, dass die EU noch nicht zu größerem Preisausgleich geführt hat.

  1. I noticed when Marcel bought the official Panini Fifa World Cup Sticker album this summer that it had the price on the back for about 10 different countries – 8 of which were in Euros but funnily enough the price ranged from 1 up to 2 Euros depending whether you were in France, Germany, Italy, Spain or whatever. It does shock more when it is in the same currency.

  2. Yeah, I know what you mean. The Economist harmonised their prices across the Eurozone when the euro was introduced, but I think that was pretty much an exception.

  3. Got the games today. I doubt I would have received them any faster if I had ordered them from Amazon.co.uk, so there’s really no reason not to buy certain games in Germany (except if one doesn’t read German).
