By very short I am thinking 10min or less. That doesn't have to be a whole "game" but just a round or complete start and end with a winner of some sort. I am looking for quite simple and with as few rules as possible, but with a high-ish skill cealing. What is there like this? Thanks for suggestions.

Some awesome short portable games are:

*Coup
*Love Letter
*Zombie Dice

!Warning Self Promotion Warning!

I am currently working on my first game to arrive on kick stater in the new year. A round in itself lasts about 5-10mins and will be 200ish cards (so more portable than some but less portable than others.)

The game is called It's Just A Theory. I one day hope people will love the game as much as i do. Please check it out and hopefully it will be the sort of thing you are looking for.

I love the look of Coup, the simplicity but still being complex because of the bluffing which gives lots of depth with nonreal rules! Thank you.

More skill/strategy is involved if you get the Reformation expansion, and use the "factions". It all fits in just the one little box, so it should suit your needs.
