I think the Queen small box range offer some excellent little games for very little money. I thought they deserved a GeekList of their own.

Alhambra is the first game I thought of when I saw the title of this list. Maybe I'm misunderstanding what you mean by "Queen small box games," but this is a great game, for a great price, that I think fits the criteria for this list.

This is one of the best. Perhaps the best. Again, it scales well. The art work is fantastic and I don't care how many folks say that they prefer Show Manager - I think the liners them with this is great.

This is a fun game and it has depth.

I enjoyed it so much after a 5 or 6 plays that I wrote a stategy article on it here.

This is the next game I thought of for this list, after Alhambra. It's not nearly as good as Alhambra, but still a decent, light and fast, tile-laying game. The problem with it is that it would be great for introducing non-gamers to the hobby as a gateway game because the rules are simple, except that the board gets overwhelming quickly what with all the twisted convoluted subway paths. This means it's not great for introducing to non-gamers and not really deep enough for gamers, so I find it's sort of caught between in limbo.

Industria is one of my favorite Queen small box games. It has a quirky auction that's not like anything else I'm familiar with. There's plenty of luck (the player who flips lousy tiles when he or she is first auctioneer is probably in trouble,) but it's quick and has interesting decisions.

Another two player game. Simple, quick but feels a little like a kids game. Probably the least value for money but still I'm glad it's in my collection.

OK, it is fun but it's more of a multiplayer puzzle than a game. The components are still good value for what you pay.

I really like the brightly colored bits in this one. I also can't wait until my girls are old enough to play it as I think they'll really like it.

I own it, although I haven't played it yet. LOTS of bits to pick up when your toddler knocks the box off the table onto the floor.

For me, this is the best value of the games. With it's jigsaw piece board, it looks and plays like a big box game.

Lots of thought involved and a great 2 player

I just bought this. The back of the box makes it look really cool. I understand that there must be some luck involved but could be a good quick fun-filler.
