My Small Games Bag
I find that most gamers have a bag of small games they keep nearby in case games are needed (which is all the time). You might take the bag to dinner at a friend's house, or to work for lunch time gaming, or keep it in your car, etc. Below is my list of small games I keep in my bag for these very reasons. But first, some explanation:Recommend
Small Games - What I mean by this is typically games that are small in stature (component count, physical size) and easy to learn/teach to new players. Often, table space is also a factor, though not always so.
I do a lot of gaming during lunch, so I need play the below games quite often. Having a play time of an hour or less is a huge plus in my book when it comes to these games specifically. For game nights, time is no issue, but when I break out a small game, I want the time commitment to be an hour or less.
With each game below I'll indicate whether it's currently In The Bag, Under Consideration, or No Longer In The Bag, and why. The games are listed in alphabetical order by category.
