So I'm trying to figure out what I want to get for my 100th game. Maybe you have a suggestion?

I have a $10 gift certificate I'd like to use for Miniature Market.
I love space games and enjoy worker placement games a good bit.
Either way I'm aiming for cheap (maybe even a simple print & play) because I'm on a budget.

I'll happily donate any geek gold given to this list to the winning person, if you suggest the best or predict the game I end up getting. Feel free to see what games I have and how I've ranked them.

Thanks everyone for your suggestions!

Edit: I wanted to include that I enjoy 'mining' type games too, and that whatever game I get I hope to enjoy/hold onto because I'm planning to downsize my collection soon.

You are excrement. You can change yourself into gold.

Haven't played this yet, but I've heard its good.
Space. Worker placement. Reminiscent of Kingsburg (which you give a 9).
Only problem seems to be limited availability currently

Great game. You have (and rate) Castle of the Devil - this is, I think, more fun.

And very much meets your budget criterion - you'll almost pick this up for the voucher you have, if the store stocks it.

I took a look at your ratings and came up with this.

It is a space game, with some abstracted exploration. Not worker placement, but definitely a "cheaper" game - you can get it at many online stores for around twenty bucks.

There is an entire "mining" strategy as the planets you explore produce resources which you can use at other planets to generate victory points or money.

Lunar Rails is a good game. If you want to pick up your 100th game soon you can get it for thirty something bucks off ebay most anytime. If you're not in a rush you can watch till a bargain for it shows up on ebay an get it for under twenty (like I did).

It's new, it's quick, it's fairly inexpensive. A giant free-for-all battle in space.
