I have two friends that I am giving small Christmas gifts to. We get together a lot to play games so I am looking for a game that our group doesn't own. I am focusing on a filler type game that plays in under and hour and works with 3-8 (or so) players. I am looking in the price range of $10-$20 and would greatly prefer if it is in stock at CSI so I can place an order in the next few days.

I already have one game picked out and I am trying to decide between One Night Ultimate Werewolf and Spyfall for the other person, but feel free to make other suggestions.

Games we already own:

No Thanks!
Qwixx
Sushi Go!
Love Letter
Coup
BANG! The Dice Game
The Resistance: Avalon
Archaeology: The New Expedition
Codenames
Codenames: Pictures

I am probably missing a few games from that list, but hopefully that should give people an idea of what style of game I am looking for.

Thanks in advance.

Gloom
The Grizzled
Hanabi

They're not so much like anything you already have, but they hit all of your other points while being different enough that that may really be an asset to your collection.

Thanks for all of the replies so far. Quite a few of the suggestions are other games that the group either owns or has played in the past. For Sale is an excellent choice and I am going to add it to my short list.

Deception: Murder in Hong Kong is a game I am planning on picking up for myself to help fill out my CSI order.

For games that play that many - Ca$h 'n Guns (Second Edition) or Camel Up?

We also like Saboteur (compilation editions)

Room 25 with expansion although prob above price range!

+1 _ The Grizzled and

+1 _ Bohnanza -- lighter, but highly interactive multiplayer.

You can get Lagoon: Land of Druids on clearance (< $20), if you want a more abstract game.

Finally, CSI has Peloponnes Card Game.

Warlord beats Troll, Troll beats Elf, Elf beats Water Sprite, and basically everything else beats Enchanted Bunny.

Mascarade is a good one and plays with 2-13 players. Less than $20 on Amazon. The Resistance: Avalon is also a great filler for large groups, but minimum of 5 players and up to 10. That's why I like Mascarade since it can accommodate a wider range of player counts. But Resistance is less than $15 on Amazon too.
