This list is inspired by a Lipman's thread found here: http://boardgamegeek.com/thread/792077/need-a-recommendation....

Please add games that play well with 2, are around $20 or less, take around 20 minutes or less, can be played in a car, and are available/in-print.

They don't have to be excellent games and they don't have to fit the above perfectly but they should fit the above fairly well.

Happy Gaming,
Redward

Edit: If you have an idea for a ame that would fit the above description fairly well but not perfectly please feel free to add it. A brief explanation of how it doesn't fit perfectly would be a nice touch but add it regardless...

Suprised no one has mentioned this yet.
In order to make it compact and travel-y when we went on holiday to India: we simply left the box at home, and wrapped up the cards in bondage tape (or whatever that stuff is called) and that was it!

There are 9 little "flags" (low budget red meeples) that you need to play the game: but you can use literally anything small in its place : we just used coins of varying sizes and a pen lid!

Fantastic game by the way: very thought provoking and satisfying when you finish a game: lose or win.

Although hard to find now, one of my favorite non wargamer games. Very simple but a lot of challenge in collecting the right cubes. A game of math and probabilities. Its also a little viscious as you can play your cards on your side or the opponents, so you can really get into a match of "Take that!"

While this one is not our favorite (Jaipur holds that spot) this is the game that goes everywhere with us; it fits in a backpack and, because it's simply a deck of cards, it doesn't get banged up the way some games do.
This is a fast, light, interesting game! Many people I know play with the rules a bit to reduce the luck factor (we don't). I don't think you can go wrong with this one!

Best game to play while your sitting at a restraunt waiting for food. Small enough to fit in your coat pocket.

This little 2 player cardgame is just the best! It lends a bit from Mahjong, but not really. You're digging for cards, trying to make a set in your hand that you can play (rummy-ish). You choose one card of the set to add to your scoring cards. If you have 5 scoring cards, you score points depending on what combinations you've made with you're scoring cards.

It's simple, fast, has a bit of a learning curve (everything runs more smoothly when you know the different scoring combinations), a bit of push your luck, but the short playing time makes it ok if you're out of luck this time. You just play another or best of 3.

Best of all: you need hardly any room to play it. 5 cards in your hand at all times, a draw deck, and a discard. Scoring cards are 5 in total, easily kept in your lap if you're traveling.

Can't recommend this enough!
