A gamers German to English Dictionary

Germany has us beat, fellow Americans.  They are simply superior board game designers.  Although I suppose it’s no great shock given that board games are a much bigger pastime in Germany.  But this being said, we, and probably some of you, have ended up with German games in your homes.  Because of this we have compiled a short English to German dictionary of indispensable gamer terms via some of our own experience and a little bit of babble fish (German followers, feel free to correct mistakes or add other phrases!).
