I recommend Sushi Go Party! over the small Sushi Go deck, there is a lot more variability that keeps the game interesting and you can get it usually for around $15-20.

7 Wonders is my favorite game of all time. It is better with the Leaders expansion, which adds a lot of strategic depth without changing the complexity that much.
