My Dungeons & Dragons group has one player who skypes in. What kind of tabletop microphone should we buy?

One of the players in my D&D group is from out of town and plays via skype or google Hangouts. We set up a Windows 8 laptop at one end of the table. This works fairly well with his character (a flighty elf who is disconnected from reality), but he is having too much trouble hearing us.
We're looking to buy a no-nonsense USB tabletop microphone. It has to be omnidirectional since we will be sitting on all sides of it, and it should cancel anything other than voices spoken within a few feet of it because there are often non-players doing things nearby. Our budget is $20-60.
I looked at some previous postings that seemed to recommend a Blue Snowball
, but we'd like something a little more affordable if possible.
