Way back in September of 2005 (before what I like to call the enlightenment), I brought my first game into work for everyone to play. Seeing as we all had a good time, I found this site in an attempt to find other games. Now I have spent too much money that I don't have on games. All of these games have gone over very well at my job, and can recommend all of them. It seems like game where you can screw over your opponents (directly or indirectly), are the favorites. Most of these games can also be played well under an hour (the length of our lunch). Plus all of these games are easy to explain, which keeps me from blowing my brains out. If you have any you would like to recommend that sort of fit the criteria, then by all means please add.

This was the first game I brought into work and was an immediate success. I know that this game doesn't get very much love here, but I can always count on a good time when we play this. The smack talk that results from laying a trumpet on a trick someone else thought they had wrapped up is priceless.

After spending some time on the geek, I was able to find this game at a local store. Once again everyone loves this game, but now no longer gets played because of length (can't fit it into lunch time).

After the success of the last two games, I got this one at B&N. This game is a rowsing success with many, many plays. Everyone loves this game, even though there is a fair amount of luck involved. The "oohs" and "aahs" that go up from putting a pirate on someone elses pirate is also priceless.

Another game that is loved. Just a very quick game that doesn't take very much thinking. Very simple, yet very fun.

The first of two games that I actually ordered online. This game is so different than most of the games that anyone had ever played, that people had warm up to it. Now it is beloved by all and played if we have 3-5 minutes left in lunch.

The second game I sent for. Also took a while to warm up to, like Cat 5.

This game was just introduced last week, but was a hit right away. This game is so simple yet so fun, that right now we can't get enough.
