The title says it all, really. OK so many of you many not be of the female persuasion, but it's really good to find games that can be played either with one hand (or even with zero), that preferably don't take too long to play (max about 20 minutes) and are relatively quiet :-) (There's also a focus on mainly 2-player games, because we can't have friends round every night!)
List is a work in progress, as the more we play the more games I will add. Suggestions welcome!

Lots of fun, easy to play, and you only ever need to move one hand. Many thanks to the lovely friends who gave this to my husband :-)

My husband introduced me to this one, too. It was apparently a favourite of his when he was young. We played it in delivery suite while waiting for the surgery team for my emergency c-section...

Great for when we have friends over, although it's not lasting past the first or second bell of Prime at this stage!

We call this Cluedo. Lots of fun, although sometimes there's a bit too much paperwork to juggle.

Worked surprisingly well, and allowed me to retreat to the comfy chair but still be a part of the game. Now I just need to convince Dear Husband that this game is *not* the Source of All Evil.

Lots of fun, and it works well as a 2-player game - although we get sick of the struggle for the farms!

possibly works better than the original Carcassonne, as the hunters don't unbalance the game quite as much as the farmers can!

Haven't tried it, but it should work well also! And darkness = good chance of baby going to sleep -- always a good thing!

Thanks, Denise, for pointing this out! Indeed a great game (we often play it when we've spent too much time talking to get a longer game started before bedtime - kids just don't sleep in after a gaming session <g>

Another blast from the past from Denise - we played this a lot after our first child was born. Must get it out again. So many games, so little time!

Just picked this up and enjoyed it very much - we needed the improvised card holder (an upside down game box works well) but it was easy enough to manage one-handed. I didn't enjoy it as much as Balloon Cup but we will definitely play it again (probably tonight, even).

This one's tougher with The Distractable Grabby Baby - in the end, I retreated to the comfy chair and played by memory. Still managed to win, though, which I was pleased about :-)
