I just got a few buck in that I can use for a new game. Here is a list of some of my favorites I own with thoughts. I've also included some possible choices. Please add any suggestions. It doesnt have to be $30 could be a little more or less
Edit for clarity: I own duel of ages, betrayal, lord of the rings and pandemic. I am looking at the others to purchase. I included owned games to give a feel for what I like

One of my 10's especially since it's my wife's favorite. Love the theme, hidden traitor and variation on scenarios.

My personal favorite. Only problem is it gets very little playtime. Most of my friends don't enjoy it and the 3 hr length can be difficult when you have 2 small kids

Best trek game ever. Love it. Hard to find players and set up can be time consuming.

Very fun. Didn't think a LCG would grip me but this does. Very thematic and can play solo which is a huge plus.

Great co-op. Am able to bring to the table with non-gamers.

Thinking of buying. I don't have many partners to play with and my wife probably wouldn't enjoy it but it's been itching in the back of my mind
