I go to my local pub once or twice a week and we often play some small games.
But it's limited to a few card a dice games that you can play with just a normal deck of playing cards and plain old dice.

About a year ago I started looking for games that are waterproof and washable. This was an important requirement because the bar is always wet from beer, soda or water.
As a result when you play with a normal deck of cards, the deck only lasts about one evening.Another requirement was size. The idea was to create a bag with a whole bunch of games in it that I could easily bring with me.

After a year of searching I put together a bag with the following games. Some games needed a little modification though.
It's still a work in progress so I might add games in the future.

If you know a game that's waterproof (or easy to make waterproof) and small. Let me know!

Cheers!

If you first sleeve all the cards with Ultra-Pro Pro-Fit sleeves and then insert them into normal sleeves with the open side down the cards are as good as waterproof.

I use the pocket version.
All the pieces are Bakelite so you can wash em of and the fabric pouch is also washable.

I use the travel version.
The wood is painted and so far the pieces didn't get damaged by water.
One time it got really wet and I first dried the pieces before putting them back in the pouch.

I have the fabric pouch from SJ Games. If it gets dirty you can simply wash it out.
You can also use a non-transparent plastic cup.

This game needed some modification. I printed out square cards (you download them here on BGG) and laminated them.

Small dexterity game with wooden discs, like a table version of bowls.

The high-gloss cards (which not everyone likes) are fairly liquid-resistant.

I printed out score sheets in color and laminated them. But you can also use the normal score sheets, put then you just have to be careful the sheet doesn't get wet.

Laminate a few of the score sheets and it's another waterproof game.

You only need the dice to play, thus waterproof.
