Cutthroat Caverns + Tombs & Tomes expansion

Its a cheap game with relatively easy rules, similar to munchkin.
the Tombs & Tomes expansion especially adds fun due to the "choose your own path" adventures that it comes with

More expansion sets for Dominion?  Or if you don't have it, Dominion and then  Dominion: Intrigue so you can play with up to 6 players?

For a cheap small "done in one" rpg I would recommend Jaws of the Six Serpents.

We have all of Dominion except Prosperity and Cornucopia. I concur with cutthroat caverns, and also put forth 7 Wonders. I played it with my dad in Alberta here, and it's quite good. Drafting/City Building type thing.

Oh, and Small World is a lot of fun (sort of a simplified, fantasy RISK with the kicker that you can run 2 races at once if one is "in decline" so you get a historical feel for it too).  I think the expansions are a bit unbalanced but the core game is enough.

I already have a copy of 7 wonders at UBC and can bring it in. As for Munchkin Quest I also have a copy of it, but not here mainly due to it being a mess of a game, and would advice against picking it up.

A new copy of Catan might be good. We have an older printing of the base and of Cities and Knights I believe, but the new printing is much nicer. As for expansions, C&K is a must, Traders and Barbarians is good (in my opinion), and I've never played Seafarers.

We have 2 copies of the base game and one of Cities and knights I believe. My personal vote would be for Ascension: Chronicle of the Godslayer - that game is fantastic.

Ya I would be against any of the settlers expansions, since I have found them all to go from bad (seafarers) to worse (C&K)

I've found seafarers quite a bit of fun and Cities and Knights is fun once you get the hang of it.
Best victory was get 2 arches in one turn go from last to win.

Oh, and an important rpg game to read (and maybe play, but definitely read) is Dogs in the Vineyard.  Since you are building a library after all.  :)

Here's what we ended up getting:

Small World
Castle of the Devil
Agricola
Puerto Rico
Ascension: Chronicle of the Godslayer
Battlestar Galactica+2 expansions
Cosmic Encounter
Elder Sign
A new non-ratty copy of Settlers of Catan

Some of these are already sitting in the office, just waiting for someone to play them, and the rest will be arriving later this week. Enjoy the new acquisitions!

We're still on the lookout for bulk dice. Currently, the best option seems to be ordering several pounds of factory defect dice from Chessex. If anyone knows where else to buy cheap bulk dice, please mention it.
