You can currently get this for 10 bucks (not incl. shipping)
https://oxeyemedia.com/collections/jansale/products/realm-of-sand
and this for 5 (likewise)
https://oxeyemedia.com/collections/jansale/products/mystery-of-the-temples.

Can Rahdo sell you on the first one in ~9 minutes?



What about these folks for the second one, in ~5?



(That one is more red-shaded than it should be. Pink = white IRL, etc.)



(They're also selling this for $10, but I don't know if I'd recommend it, especially if
you tend toward analysis paralysis, and orders including it won't ship for months -

Also, there's currently a lower-than-average price for this speed/puzzle/stacking game on Amazon:

Sure, you might have some board games... but can they do this?

(The bowl is not included. The square containers and dice tower are.)


Each card is unique.
(These are the base game's cards, featuring North American birds; each expansion's birds are from a different region.)

(I would not recommend this game except to enthusiasts of the theme or as a gift for them... There are some around here.)

Is there an expurgated version?

No. (What would you want expurgated? Evolution? References to reproduction? I could find out if they're in there in the first place.)

Here's a free pass-and-play version of the 2-player abstract game YINSH (no registration needed):
http://lanny.github.io/Yinch/
And here you can play against an AI (likewise) - https://david-peter.de/yinsh/

Instructions (I haven't watched this, but the rules are quite simple, so I doubt it's wrong;
anyway, both sites enforce the rules, so you won't be able to make illegal moves):

(How do you know that?)
This appears not to affect the shipping cost of that item for Lakewood residents.



That's from when
I backed their [Empyreal] Kickstarter
I didn't know until today that they used them for non-Kickstarter stuff as well.

Currently $20. Shipping is $3 to NJ (or, I assume, NY).

This is a deck-building game in which the players race to the end of the board. A deck-building game is one in which
each player has a personal deck of cards that they cycle through and can modify during the game. In this one, cards
must be spent to traverse various kinds of terrain on the map, but unspent cards are also how you pay for new cards.

Rock-paper-scissors variant (courtesy of Brendan Hansen of the Decision Space podcast):
You will need 3 tokens, representing rock, paper, and scissors, and a 2-space track for each token.
Place the tracks with one end toward each player and the tokens near them.
(You can also just have a dividing line and have the tokens off to one side at the start.)

Play rounds of rock-paper-scissors as normal. When a player wins a round, place the
token corresponding to the throw they used (R/P/S) on their side of its track. If it is
already on their side of its track, they have won the game.
