Inspired by the Top 25 Under $25, I thought I'd cull a previous Geeklist of mine down to the best of the best: all the games in the top 10% of all ranked games (i.e., top 900) that cost less than $10. I'm not including card games, as you'll find tons and tons of these on the Good & Cheap and the Order Filler Geeklist. That means the games on this list are incredible deals: you're usually getting a board, tiles, meeples, dice, etc. for $10 or less!

Here's the breakdown of the types of games on this list:
- 22 Strategy games (5 Heavy, 13 Medium, 4 Light)
- 13 Abstracts (2 Heavy, 4 Medium, 7 Light)
- 5 Family games
- 3 Wargames
- 3 Party game
- 1 Thematic game

(I'm defining Heavy as Game Weight > 3, Medium's > 2 up to 3, and Light is 2 or less.)
