Quality Games that Can Easily Be Explained in 5 Minutes or Less
- OK, the list is now closed for additions, for the time being. The next step is to organize the list. First, I will drop all games with a weight over 2 to the end of the list. Second, if you think that the game firmly fits within the criteria, thumb the entry. In two weeks, I will re-order the list from most thumbed to least thumbed. Sound good? Comment below if you have a different proposal.-Recommend
This is a list of games that you can easily teach to a new gamer quickly and succinctly. If you are looking to get a friend or significant other into the hobby, this list may be a good place to start.
NOTE: This will be a fluid list, if feedback comes showing that a strong consensus feels a game can not be easily explained in 5 minutes, the game is just no good, or not available at retail in any market, the item will be
deletedmoved to the back of the list (not a judgement, just making sure the list is useful to as many people as possible). If you feel I (or any of the contributors) have mis-judged explaining time, let us know.
Bit by bit I will edit the header for each title in an effort to break down the core rules in the most succinct manner possible. If you have a rule's breakdown that you think is comprehensive enough to get a player started and concise, post it in the comments. If you add a title, if you could, try to do the same.
