How to Build the Perfect Good & Cheap Game Collection
Let's say you want to build a "perfect collection" but are strapped for cash. The games on "A Cheapskate's Guide to a Free & Well-Rounded Game Collection" look interesting, but many of them either have poor ratings or are time-consuming print-(and-cut-and-glue-)and-play affairs. The "Good and Cheap" list has nearly 100 games that are highly ranked and cost $10 or less, but you know you're not going to buy all of these games. How do you choose?Recommend
This list recasts the "Good and Cheap" Geeklist into the "Perfect Collection" approach discussed in this thread and modeled in this Geeklist. The first half of the games below show up on both Geeklists, while the second half is mostly a variety of lower priority games that can add to your collection but are not "necessary."
A few notes:
1. $13 Maximum Price: The "Good and Cheap" list used a $10 limit but was made 4 years ago. I've inflated the maximum price to $13.
2. BGG Top 20%: The number of games ranked here on BGG has also increased. I include anything in the Top 20% of all ranked games, rather than just the Top 1000. Right now, that amounts to using the Top 1200.
3. Traditional Card Games: Yes, many of these can fill categories below, but part of the idea here is to get you some nice, shiny, new games rather than just using the old standby.
