As much fun as it is to pull out a lot of bits and pieces and set up a game for a couple hours of fun and strategy, there are those times when I like to just play something quick. This geeklist features my favorite lower-weighted games in order of preference.

This is a great little card game that travels quite well. IT works with 2 and fits perfectly on those little plane tables.

I've managed to introduce non-gamers and family to this somewhat interesting card game...my gateway to move up to HIGH SOCIETY and even greater things to come.

When I'm not in the mood for TICKET TO RIDE, this seems to work. I have to admit though, that when playing with 2, the game now seems to drag on too long so much so that TtR is probably a better choice (especially the Swiss map). Still, family members love it.

People may groan when I bring this out to play, but that soon changes once folks get the hang of this. I love the macabre humor of this game and the humorous art work. For my wife and I, it has been replaced more by MORELS as she finds that less odd than grabbing heads.

Sometimes this game comes out at our home for 4-player games. My wife played this a lot in college and so it is one of her nostalgic favorites.

One of the dumbest games I own, but I will tell you that it is a favorite at Thanksgiving/Christmas when we have a bunch of people sitting waiting to eat or recovering from a big meal. The sillyness of this game works well for all ages.

While this has been replaced by many other draw-and-guess games, I still have a bit of fondness for this 1980s game which recalls many fun family nights.

This used to be our go-to card game over dinner for a while. We must have played it nightly for a month before switching to dominoes.

I love word games and can play a few games of this every once in a while before I have to move on to something else.

Another of those UNO-family card games that I grew up on. It has also been a favorite late-night or over meal game to play at our home.
