A couple of games that I have that are cheap and fun

Star Realms-outer space deck builder win by reducing opponent to 0 authority.

Epic Card Game-kind of like Magic the gathering but not collectible, one of everything is in the box.

If you frequently play with 6+ people, Codenames.

If you're looking off the sorta beaten bath of Love Letter and its spawn (Batman, Lord of the Rings, Red 7), I definitely recommend Wyatt Earp. Cheap and fast, too, just how I like 'em.

Love Letter, and there are several different themed versions for whatever you might fancy.

Fluxx, even more versions for whatever them you are into.

Smash Up, and has a lot of expansions to get later to get more variety and larger player count. Not super quick, especially with a larger player count, but still a reasonable time frame.

Codenames minimum 3 players, better with a higher player count, team game, highly replayable, even in succession.

Spyfall minimum 3 players, better with a higher player count, highly replayable, even in succession.

We played, and still do, a bunch out of Saboteur and Saboteur 2. It's a fun building and bluffing game. It's a small card game (2-deck box) so it's really cheap.

Hey there,

I think we'll need more information to help. The majority of the time games that are cheaper, are also lighter. Nothing wrong with a light game, but a light game won't have the same lasting appeal. What I mean is a filler game is great to play every so often, but all night every night is a different matter.

So to help us out, what is your maximum budget? How often would you be playing this game? Nightly, weekly? How many people will you usually be playing it with?

That will help us give you better recommendations I think.

One Hit Kill is now available on amazon it is a nice quick 2-3 player card game that takes around 15-20 minutes to play and about 30 seconds to teach and is incredibly replayable. It is under $20 for the base game. I would recommend getting the expansion(Death & Lore) to extend it to 6 players and add mechanics without additional complexity or weight. It plays best with 2-4 players, once above that it tends to have too much down time between turns.

I also suggest getting 2 copies of Love Letter and combining them to allow 2-8 players. Check out the Love Letter page's files for how to do this, it is a german file but you can easily make your own hand written chart to know the card distribution based on player number. I now prefer playing Love Letter with 5-8 players, 7+ depends on the group more than 5/6, but itr plays just as quick as normal love letter but it is more interactive.

Both of these meet your cheap and fun requirements

Hey! Go for a classic that never fails!

Bohnanza (edit) Not fast!

If you want two players (and more), give Würfel Bohnanza a try.

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

Well, how about...

Love Letter a small deduction card game, or

Lost Legacy: The Starship which is similar, but slightly more involved, or

Cockroach Poker which is a push-your-luck card game, or

Zombie Dice a push-your-luck dice rolling game, or

Pig - yet another push-your-luck game requiring just one six sided die, or

Black Spy, a trick taking card game based on Hearts.

Hope this helps.

What do you consider cheap?

My cheapest game is Love Letter (I actually like the Batman version better, not for its theme, but for how it plays). You can get it for under $10USD.

A little pricier than that (but still under $20USD) is Citadels. A little more game to it with better replay value, and plays great at every player count (2-8). One of my old faithfuls when I can't decide.
