Thanks everyone for your help previously, I am placing and order soon and need one more game to add to the order.

The games I decided on from my previous post are

Bohnanza

Splendor

I am also adding

Kingdom Builder

New York 1901

I am looking to get games to break my parents of their Ticket To Ride Obsession, so simple rules, short down time between turns, some strategy, and 90 min or less.

Budget under $30 (Cardhaus) Can be 1 or 2 games

Games my mom has enjoyed besides TTR

Pandemic, King of Tokyo, Escape! Curse of the Temple

My dad

Hey that's my fish, and kind of liked hive, likes chess and stratego

Games that they felt lukewarm about or disliked

Jamaica, Survive!, Flash Point, Galaxy Trucker, Takenoko, Love Letter

[Edit] I figured I would throw out a couple I am interested in

Camel Up- Not sure if there are enough interesting decisions

Colt Express- Not sure on replay value

Qin- Not sure if it would hold their interest very long

Carcassone- I play on my tablet, but I don't know if it would be interesting enough to my parents

Would love some other suggestions along those lines

Also my dad dislikes co-ops

I have Sushi Go. Parade, and Arboretum are unavailable on Cardhaus and both appear to be out of print. I would love to get them though :-/

Well I already own Love Letter and Coup, and those are games that did not go,over well. I am already ordering Splendor. I enjoy Jaipur, but I am looking more for a game for 4 players, so Fungi is out. Sadly Stone Age is just out of budget. As for Carcassonne I am just not sold on, I enjoy it,but I am just unsure it would hold me parents attention, It is probably the one out of the ones listed I am more likely to get.
