I'm in the process of building a small footprint: so far forbidden island takes up about 50% of the space, low playing time investment: 30 minutes is great; less than 10 minutes why bother; 45 minutes; "I have other things I need to do", low cost: $10 to $20 is great; $25 for a really good game, over that it needs to be outstanding in it's class; mostly 2 player game collection

I have:

Jaipur
Hanabi
Citadels
Fish Cook
Forbidden Island
Decktet

I'm thinking I'd like 2 or 3 more games that fill a couple of holes.

One hole is the race around the board. But, one that isn't simply roll the die, move the pawn; Odin's Ravens or Ur maybe?

What are some other holes and possible games to fill them?

I'd like to help, but I really don't understand the question. Can someone please translate this for me?

Tales & Games: The Hare & the Tortoise

No dice, within the play time, and space requirement.

He needs games for his starting collection.

Small footprint: Forbidden Island takes up half of the table space.

30 to 45 minutes playing time.

Around $20.

2 player.

Looking for a race game, amongst other things.

+1 to this suggestion. Great racing game. Looks like a kids game, but it is not. Works well with 2 players.

Also, take a look at Deep Sea Adventure but you really need more to make it fun.

You need to add Patchwork and Star Realms to your collection.

ahh.. thanks.. was having problems parsing the sentence..

I recommend Tiny Epic Kingdoms (4X game), and Biblios (card drafting & auction).

oh.. and Medieval Academy - not really a race around the board, but i believe one of the ways to earn points is via a race type mechanism.

Yep, me too. All my favorites take time to play.

Come to think of it, most of mine need a big table, too.

And cost way more than 20 bucks.

You know what? I'm in the wrong thread. I have absolutely nothing useful for you.

It's not a race game, but Love Letter is a great and affordable little game with a tiny footprint.
