As I am having to do a number of secret santa type gifts this year I was hoping for some Board game ish ideas?

For those that don't know secret santa involves giving a gift in secret of a very low value - we are spending no more than £5.

Thanks for any help!

Seems like micro games are what you want.

Some stuff like

Love Letter
Roll for it

Small games like that.

i would agree with Ben. Small games are best.

Just a few more

I can't think of any games that are RRP at less than £5, unfortunately.

Card games that come close (going by my FLGS' prices, YMMV):

Hanabi - £7
Love Letter - £8
Lost Legacy: The Starship - £8 (or Lost Legacy: Flying Garden)
No Thanks! - £10
Saboteur - £10

You might be able to find a bargain bin / clearance price on one of those (or something similar), if you're lucky. Utilise all available avenues - Amazon, BoardGamePrices, eBay, BGG Marketplace, etc.

Sorry I can't be any more help!

£5 is hard given the UK prices, but I'd go with Lost Legacy, Qwixx, Pickomino or Coloretto.

I don't know if you have any Five-Below type stores there, but if you can find a Rage deck cheaply, you could include rules to some of the many games that can be played with it.

Games playable with Rage deck (not the CCG) - please add!
