I have 10 games on my wishlist: Power Grid, Bohnanza, Loot, Guillotine, Star Fluxx, Onirim, Hanabi, Love Letter, Urbion, and Saboteur. I am willing to spend roughly $60 on games right now (read max of $65). Can someone recommend the best combo of these games that i could get?

Additional Details: my gaming group is usually 4 right now, but will drop to two or 3 for most of the school year. I would like to get a few fast paced, fun ones, and 1 or 2 more serious, strategic ones.

Power Grid, Hanabi, and Love Letter should work. Maybe Bohnaza instead of Love Letter, but that's about it.

What he said, though I'd put saboteur instead of bohnanza as a reserve pick.
But it pretty much depends on the target audience. Oh, few people, ok, skip saboteur and Bohnanza. Love letter and Hanabi are right on target.

Love Letter is the new hotness, but in my opinion Guillotine is much more fun. Also, I don't understand why people like Bohnanza. Everyone I've played it with had a "meh" feeling about it.

I'd go with Power Grid, Saboteur, and Bohnanza if it were me. You can't go wrong with the classics. Although if you need a game that plays great with 2, I'd replace Saboteur with Love Letter.
