Considering I'm 13 years old, and my pocket money is only $150-250ish right now...
Individual reasons explained below.

If anyone can recommend any good 2-3 play card games for a reasonable price, that would help greatly! I love Bohnanza, Scnappchen Jagd, and Babel.

A few reasons- from the reviews I've read, either you love it or you hate it. There are only 3 people in my family who will play games (me, dad, and brother) so if one of them hates it, I wasted $25. It also looks pretty complex, but that is probably managable (we play Tikal fine)

I've heard complaints about luck, and I don't know how to handle that. It looks fun, but I'm not sure if it's right for us.

I love Babel, and have been meaning to try other Kosmos 2 player games, but I've heard mixed reviews on this one. I'm not sure if I want a $15 dollar game that plays like a game from the standard deck of cards. I'm thinking I may like Hera & Zeus better.

Priced the same as Settlers on Funagain. This one looks incredibly complicated from the pictures and reviews. I don't know how complex it is, is it more or less than Tikal?

Reviews say it is more complex and also a better game than Tikal. This one is 3-4 players while Tikal is 2-4, and my brother doesn't like Tikal that much, so I might pass on this one.
