Hey all,

I'm about to have a holiday gift exchange with my local game group. The price should be around 35 dollars, give or take a few.

The games can be new or gently used, and I'm thinking I'd like to get some suggestions for good "gift" games.

If there is a great game for around 35, thats great...but I'm thinking I'd like to get maybe two games as one gift (so like two 15 dollar games, or a 20 and a 15, etc)

Ideally, it would be cool to have a one of them be a filler, and the other slightly less so.

These are just guidelines...

Lastly, card games are OK, but at least one of them should have some good "bits" to them, for example Get Bit! which has cards and the little people and the shark...

Just looking for fun gifty games!

I give it a shot. Getting 2 for under 30 is a bit tough, but I think this game above along with Love Letter would make a pretty good game gift.

Both play up to 4 players, are easy to teach and learn and offer some good game play.

Can't do better than an SdJ winner with an MSRP of $10.95.

This game seems to have gotten a lot of love lately. I've played it's younger brother, Forbidden Island, and found it to be fairly easy to learn with some appeal for non-gamers.
