no, but it gave some valuable pointers and I think our concerns are
similar enough to merge both bugs. 
However, even after dozens of retries with different parameters, I
didn't get it to do what I expected. It either straightforward installed
the package from the local repo, because that had the higher version
number 1.0-2 (if used with the -a option) or it persisted to install
only the package from the Debian mirror, because of the "game=1.0-1"
command line passed over to apt-get.

I did not get it to first install the package from the Debian mirror,
then upgrade to the package from the local repo.
