This list began with a desire to find cheap games which are highly ranked on BGG. All of the GeekLists I found on the subject were either out of date or not very systematic, so I decided to make my own. I have attempted to list all the games ranked in the top 1000 which are, more or less, readily available for $10 or under, not counting shipping. Alongside each game, I mention a store where it is available and the price. So, whether you are looking for that last game to round off your order or you're just strapped for cash, this list is for you. Feel free to leave comments about the individual games. By the way, this is my first GeekList, so I hope you enjoy it.

Cheapskates, unite!

With the plethora of different ways Magic cards are sold these days, you can surely get enough cards to play a game for under $10, so it technically qualifies. But be warned: If you get hooked on this game, you will probably end up spending lots and lots of money on it. So, I wouldn't recommend it as a low-budget game. The same goes for most of the collectible games on this list.

You can usually find a set that has chess, checkers, and backgammon for 3 or 4 dollars at regular retail stores like Wal-Mart.
