I did a Google search for this and found quite a few of these types of geeklists. None were for anything recent or were abandoned long ago. This lead me to compile a new updated version for this year. This could also help out a lot with the holidays approaching quickly.

The rules are:

1. No Expansions
2. The average price cannot exceed $20.
3. The item(s) can be found at multiple FLGS/OLGS for under $20.

I know I'm missing a lot so add your favorites.

A surprisingly good board game for a cheap price. The retail doesn't really matter as it is always on sale online for $10-$15. I picked up my copy for $11.

The other small deckbuilder of 2014, it packs a lot of strategic play into a small box for 2-4 players. Deserves a lot more attention.

This is a stand alone game and it is a 5-6 player expansion for Valley of the Kings. Plays the same way as VotK. Brings different set cards to the game. FLGS price about $20.

If I'm in the mood for a silly, light game, this is one of the first ones I reach for. It works well with both gamers and non-gamers. It's also one that I can play with my kids and have a blast with.

To me...this is a pre-programmed movement game for people who don't like pre-programmed movement games. It's a short and light enough game that you don't really care if your plans get messed up.

Back when I was a Kickstarter backer for this one, I think I paid $18, and it was totally worth it. Now that it's on it's 2nd (or maybe 3rd) print run, I see you can grab it on Amazon for $16.50-ish (w/ FSSS).

The modernisation of the Pit system. This is a chaotic real-time turnless trading game that improves on the age old classic.

A fantastic party game. Takes out all the bidding from regular Wits and Wagers and streamlines it with meeples. it can be found at just about any store for $20 or under. This game is usually on sale.

Awesome push your luck dice game. Great for the whole family and friends alike. You can find this at Target and other game stores. Retails for $13.99, but you usually find it cheaper.

Surprisingly good little filler dice game that keeps some of the aspects of the -oretto type games.
