I'm an ardent follower of both Leezer's Good & Cheap Geeklist and Legomancer's Order Filler Geeklist, which are excellent sources of decent but inexpensive games. I love Tichu, Battle Line, etc. as much as the next guy, but a $14.99 card game doesn't feel like as much of a win for bargain hunters as snagging a game with a board, meeples, tiles, and/or other little bits and pieces. This new Geeklist is for this latter type of game.

To be added to this Geeklist, the game must:
- Cost $15 or less,
- Not be primarily a card game (Consider Oltre Mare the border here.), and
- Be in the top third quarter 15% of ranked games here on BGG (#1200 or better as of August 2012).

In addition:
- Games regularly on sale are fine, until it becomes clear they are no longer under $15.
- Used games are fine too, as long as they are almost always sold for less than $15.
- Print N Play games are not fine. You should be able to purchase the game and be ready to play it upon receiving it.

I'm adding the games I know about to start and will update it periodically when I notice new bargains. I look forward to seeing everyone else's additions!

$11 on Amazon.com and a dollar or two less in the BGG Marketplace

You'll have to settle for a used copy of this game at this price, but it's more cutthroat than Quo Vadis?, another cheap negotiation game on this list (above).

This auction game had been available for cheap at Funagain (or something) for a while, but only if you purchased some minimum amount of other games. Now it's available for cheap without any strings attached on Amazon.

There are several copies of this available in the BGG Marketplace for $10 or less and another handful for $10 to $15. eBay prices are similar. You get a nice board and lots of playing pieces with this one.

This one won't thrill the tile-laying, chit-pulling strategy game lovers, but it's popular as a party game and is quite affordable.
