Last week I came across a good deal on Amazon. Key Harvest for 15 dollars. Does anyone else know of good deals like this? With times being tough, I am always looking for a bargain! I am looking for games less than $20!

Well, Key Harvest is sort of perpetually on sale for $15. If you're looking for another game that's always under $20, Forbidden Island is worth looking at.

There's also the Hot Deals forum (http://boardgamegeek.com/forum/10/boardgamegeek/hot-deals) that you can check in on regularly, though it seems to have died down quite a bit after the holidays.

One of my favorite places to look is in the bargain bin at toys for thought.

http://toysforthought.com/store/category/6/211/BARGAINS/

Not everything there is a great deal but there are always some good ones. Here's a few that stand out in my opinion

Caveman 10$
Ad Astra 20$ (and for that matter a lot of Fantasy Flight games)
Cleopatra Society of Architects 20$
Constantinopolis 20$
Dragonheart 10$
Giants 21$
Middle Kingdom 3$
Senji 21$
Golden City 15$
Wicked Witches Way 14$

Not everything in the bin is in stock all the time but they periodically refresh it (such as Mission to Red Planet). Shipping isn't bad if you buy multiple games at once.

There's a geeklist about good games under 15 or 20 dollars but I can't find it or remember the title. Perhaps someone else can help you out there.

Other deals can be found on Thought Hammer, they have nice sales here and there. If you can pick up Tower of Babel I think it would be worth it. It's a nice game for 3 or 4 as long as you play without the special cards. Usually can be found for 10 bucks or so too.

You can usually get Masons on Amazon for under 20. My wife and I like it a lot. It's different than anything else in my collection - area control with options based on dice AND cards!

Don't forget their "Leftover Turkeys" section, which includes the Mission: Red Planet deal you mentioned which is IMO the best bargain they have:

Get on the mailing list of every online store you can find is a good method to hear about sales. Also regularly check their sales page. Basically it's up to you how much effort you put it to keeping an eye out :-)

I saw Loot on Amazon for under 10. It seems to have good reviews. Is this a good filler game for 2 player, or is it only good in large groups?
