I'm putting in a game order with an online shop and as usual, as long as I'm ordering anyway, I'm looking for cheapies to throw in as well.

This should be a list of available, cheap (less than $15 US), good games that are excellent for just tossing one or two of them into an existing game order.

Obviously most of them will be card games, since it seems like even the tiniest bit of wood or cardboard can often bump a game's price above the $15 point. But you never know!

All the lists I've seen to this effect are out of date, so I'm starting a new one.

PLEASE DO NOT ADD ANYTHING OVER $15

and, since I obviously can't assume it naturally follows:

PLEASE DO NOT ADD ANYTHING THAT IS OUT OF PRINT OR UNAVAILABLE

Honestly, is what I'm trying to do here really that impenetrable?

A friend taught this to me at BGG.con (after Beese).

Very quick, easy to teach game.

It does fit in your pocket too.

And can be found for under $10.

The worst named game of 2009 (for searching in the BGG database) is a pretty respectably rated filler.
($12.90 at Boulder Games)

I would go with this Rosenberg game. I like Bohnanza, I like Agricola, but for a filler, this one can't be beat. Three hands to manage, lots of decisions to be made, and plays pretty quickly. Gets my vote over Bohnanza.

Check out my review on it if you are more curious...

Duckhunt in a box!
It's a bit similar to Guillotine but adds mean direct confrontation.
The game is played till last man standing but when you're already out of the game you can still play action cards; getting your revenge on the people who killed your ducks while the game continues!

Underrated, fast-playing card game for 2-4. Some luck, but lots of interesting tactical play.

From the description:
Quote:
featuring over 100 different cards with illustrations from leading artists such as Ed Beard Jr., Quinton Hoover, Donato Giancola, Mark Poole, Melissa A. Benson, Mark Evans, Raven Mimura, and more!

Throughout the game, players assemble companies of knights and other characters who attempt to complete quests and overcome their enemies at Camelot, Cornwall, and the Perilous Forest. When the final adventure is complete, the player with the most Victory Points wins the game!


The art really is great. And the game can be had for under $9 at Boards and Bits.

This Looney game lists for more, but it's generally $12-14 $7-12 at the online merchants. It's simple, it can't last very long. I haven't played the new edition but I'm sure it's better, because there was too much random goal shuffling in the old rules.

Edit: Cheaper than I thought.

This was another impulse purchase - the package caught my eye on the way to the store's checkout desk. My mind immediately went to the timeless bullying and subsequent hunger-pangs of the vanquished geek, nerd, or pacifist who "donated" to the lunch fund of someone else. This is another great game to take to the office and break out in the lunchroom. This game has a powerful way of pulling meek people from their shell and, perhaps, exercising the demons of hungry afternoons of the past when they timidly sat in class hoping no one heard the audible protests of their empty stomaches over the classroom din. When you are engaged in a card duel with a mild-mannered coworker who excitedly cries out "stay down, b_itch!" while simultaneously throwing down another attack card you know this game strikes the schadenfreude gene buried deep within all of us.

Now, you won't see this on the limited boardgameprices.com, but if you search for it on Google Shopping (previously Froogle) you will find that you can still purchase this excellent game for under $15 new. I didn't even know it was still in print/available.

Anyway, it's a superb 2-player game that can stretch to 3 or can accommodate 4 with two copies.
