I'm looking to add a game to an order and I want to narrow it down to a recently released game, from 2011 - 2012. Also, the game should be under $30 and available from the regular online game stores.

The criteria I'm looking for in the game are
- euro or hybrid game (no wargames or pure ameritrash)
- should play in about 1-2 hours
- should support 2+ players (up to 6 would be nice)

Any suggestions?

Thanks
Richard

$30 is interesting. A US $30 game is a $100 game in New Zealand.

Boards and Bits has "Last Will" on sale for $29.97. This one came out in 2011, and is one of the best Euro-games to come out in recent years. It has a very fun theme that is immediately engaging, and it is easy to teach and play. Of the other items listed above, I've really enjoyed "Lords of Waterdeep" and "Castles of Burgundy". You can't go wrong with either one.

Sentinels of the multiverse. Not exactly euro , but still a lot of strategy. Most legal fun you will have under $30.

These threads are absolutely the most dangerous (and expensive) threads on the Geek. It is like my wallet's kryptonite.

I'm surprised that Castles of Burgandy is on this list. That is a lot of game for $30.

Hmmm

Thanks for all the suggestions..

I should have mentioned that I already owned Castles of Burgundy. If I didn't, that would probably be the game I would have gone for. I actually just got it a couple of weeks ago and haven't played it yet, so it didn't strike me to add it to the original post.

King of Tokyo is a nice hybrid IMO. My group typically dislikes overly themed AT games, but this one is a hit. Also a plus that it plays up to 6!
