My storage space for games is essentially a small bookshelf and a small closet. Lately, I have been looking for games that I can tuck away easily - I just don't have the space for larger boxes!

Below are some of the better ones I've played.

Feel free to add your favorite game that comes in a small box. A lot of them tend to be card games, so if you know of anything different, that's awesome - post away!

While this is a good filler, I would probably enjoy the regular Mr. Jack this one is based on a bit more. Still fun, and definitely fits the description of a small box

I played this for the first time a few months ago at a board game meet up, and I loved it. Very unique and challenging.

I saw this played on Table Top, and I had to get it. It doesn't disappoint. Great for creative types who enjoy telling stories.

This game is based off Balloon Cup, which I've never played, but now I want to. I like the art/colors, mechanics, and components. This is a great one for kids, too.

I first played this with two players, and was not impressed. I didn't get the mass appeal - until I played with three. Comes in a pouch, so it's perfect for storing in a small area.

Get the first edition if possible to maximize payoff to space ratio. The system created an amazing atmosphere of tension/paranoia with the right group. With the wrong group, this game will fall flat.

This game is structured similarly to for sale, but is a much better design in my opinion. This is a one of those rare auction game that works very well with 2 players.

It's not my thing, but if you are interested in the deck building mechanic, this little game will meet your needs with a tiny footprint. Alos, I would recommend this as your solo option over a game like Onirim, since the decisions seem to be tougher in Friday.

This game is fun and simple and its box is about the same size as a DVD case. It works really well as a gateway game, but is a fun filler for experienced gamers as well.

Citadels is a great game that uses deduction and role selection really well. It can be played with inexperienced gamers, but holds up well with veterans as well. Its box is about the size of a Kraft macaroni box, but the game inside is great.
The Fantasy Flight silver line has several other games in this box size, making them great for people with limited space.
