We have found that 23 is a great alternative to No Thanks. You need to make a similar level of important decisions throughout each game.

Already mentioned once above, surely you need to be introduced to a game of long-standing reputation: Coloretto

Tried it at gencon and think A Game of Thrones: Hand of the King is right up there for small card games I'd always want handy with me (being game of thrones themed is just a plus!)
