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All the lists I've seen to this effect are out of date, so I'm starting a new one.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

Per boardgameprices.com it is under $15 at Fair Play games.

There's a reason it's a classic and in print for over 60 years.

This game I like much more than Bang! It has the same type of team elements but a lot more going on I think. And it doesn't have people waiting around after they are killed. It's easy to learn and around an hour to play. Very fun! I generally keep a few of these on hand.

This was the filler for me that greased the wheels of quite a few orders this past holiday season.

I was genuinely surprised by this one - I've found it to be the best monopoly-based game out there.

mbmbmbmbmb
Formula motor racing.

A card game with 12 plastic cars and a D12 (for when there are crashes).
Best with 5-6 players. 10-15 minutes per round.

There's quite a lot of chaos and luck. Lots of potential for screwage and nastiness but with some subtle strategy.

If you play 3 rounds back to back you can make better decisions by targetting the leader.

You take a lot of flack on the 'geek for liking Fluxx, but it's okay to like the same company's PATENTED TIME TRAVEL CARD GAME! Chrononauts is a fun card game with an interesting mechanic. The cards make the board, and you use cards to flip important time periods to cause others to flip.

It's much easier to explain when you have the game in front of you.
