I have the opportunity to get one game as a Christmas gift (it may be the only game I get this year) and I'd like your help with deciding on what I should get. I like to play a lot of different types of games but my favorites are strongly thematic games, and more specifically, dungeon crawlish games. The game has to be available either new or used for under $40. Here is the list of games from my wishlist that are currently in the running. You can vote on my list or make additions to help me decide.

This game has been recommended as one of the most story driven dungeon crawlerish game. Pretty strong contender.

Really enjoy the light and engaging play of this game. It would fill a pretty big hole in my collection. The casual game.

This dungeon crawler comes highly recommended. The two player aspect of this game is both a good and bad thing.

The deck building mechanic is one of my favorites. This game combines the deck building mechanic with a cool space conquest theme!

I have Pathfinder and love it. The fact that this is somewhat a similar game is both a good and bad thing. I have read some negative comments on its numbers based combat.

I really love the theme of this game but I'm not sure the play time will "fly" with my group.
