Hi all,

I am going to order a map pack for TTR from amazon which is £17. I want to make the order over £20 so I can get free postage. I don't want to spend more than £30 in total so have a max of £13 from Amazon. I already own Love Letter and Jaipur so would maybe like something a bit different.

Many thanks!

One Night Ultimate Werewolf (best with 4+) or Innovation (best with 2 and 3 players) for something slightly similar but very different. (Ok, the latter seems to be over your artificial limit, but I would rather pay a little extra to get a game good game than buy something bad or inconsequential just to spend credit.)

My favorite filler is Council of Verona, it's a great bluffing game that's quick and refreshing. Make sure to get the poison expansion too. Red7 is also pretty fun.

No Thanks!

Eggs and Empires

Are all fairly inexpensive and great fillers.

I hope that helps,

Pit may be a good fit. A fast loud filler my group likes and doesn't look like there will be much overlap with anything you have. Defiantly for a group of people though, 4 minimum I would say.

I've tried several fillers (No Thanks, Incan Gold etc.) this summer, and I have to say Coloretto has been a great succes.

Carcassonne South Seas is a great game and its £15 - its more accessible than standard Carcassonne and it is different enough to be worth getting if you have Carcassonne. A very fun tile laying game for all ages.

Isle of Trains. The Great Heartland Hauling Co.. For Sale. Sushi Go!. If two-player only is okay add Patchwork or Battle Line to this list.

Coup! Great all-rounder - plays from 2+, plays in 15 minutes, very cheap and is a bit different!

+1 Red7

+1 Patchwork (2-Player as stated before)

+1 Coup if you have more than 4 players

+1 Innovation (really great game with some depth and will provide the longest and most full experience of the list. almost wouldn't call it a filler but I guess so compared to really long games.)

Arboretum might be a good fit. (check a quick youtube video of gameplay)

Targi, Gloom, Parade, or maybe ZombieDice. It all depends what you can get into. We are pretty open and like a wide variety of games.

So.... I was gonna say DUH SPYFALL WTFMATE but then realized that it's $55 on Amazon! It's an AMAZING filler, my new favorite, but not worth $55.

REd7 is shipped from the US. Hanabi (2-5), Hey That's My Fish (2-4), Forbidden Island (2-4), Star Realms (2 unless you buy another set) are all available with free delivery. I've not played Forbidden Island but all the rest I like.

Escape: The Curse of the Temple is a solid filler with intense dice rolling.
Saboteur is a hidden role team card layer.
Can't Stop is a classic dice rolling press your luck.
There's a Moose in the House is a silly card layer.

Welcome to the Dungeon is a game I've only recently discovered and it is excellent. Can't recommend it highly enough.

Thanks for all the suggestions will have a look through them. Was meant to say it will mostly be for 2 players but don't mind if it can accommodate more. Was thinking about Fungi but thought it was too similar to Jaipur? Got Coup, The Resistance,and Forbidden Desert already.

Thanks again everyone!

There's no simple explanation for anything important any of us do, and yeah the human tragedy consists of the necessity of living with the consequences, under pressure, under pressure. -Courage (For Hugh Maclennan): The Tragically Hip

For Sale is a great filler game featuring auctioning of properties, then flipping those properties for cheques.
