I have a fairly stressful job, it shouldn't be but it is. Indecision, an ever changing job description, and constant direction changing. Towards the end of last year, my immediate co-worker and I were talking about our natural habit to stress eat and how out budgets were being blown on food because of it. In an attempt to curb our awful eating habits and de-stress for a while, I suggested that I bring in a game and we bring our lunches. As a non-gamer he immediately jumped on board, with one exception... Friday was fat kid Friday and we went to chipotle. Our agreement was made. This list will consist of the games that we've played on our lunch breaks so that we can look back on our weeks and hopefully year and see what we've managed to play.

This was the first game I brought in. We were able to get a few games in. Quick, easy but probably too light to make a return to our lunch breaks.

We played this the same day as King of Tokyo. Again, fast easy but a bit of a mess when you have a small table and Meeples trying to run away.
Will not return to work.

Played a game with soul sets A & B. Satan and his minions dominated this round.
He picked this up quickly as he previously worked at a casino.
High chance that this will return to the table again.

The first semi "heavy" game I taught him. Picked it up quickly, it may be difficult to manage to get this in often as it really pushed the time limit on our break.

I'm a huge Xavier Georges fan, so I wanted to get this to the table. Again, easy to teach, he picked up on it quickly.
High chance of returning to the table again. I only wish Troyes was quick enough to get in on break.

Played this today with the first two expansions. We actually were able to get through this twice, he's now a big fan. Went as far as to download it after work.
This was stashed in my desk drawer so we can replay it again.
This may become a standard for us.

My wife ordered me this for Christmas. So glad I was able to get a copy. Imagine king of Tokyo with decisions on buying CV cards.

Takes a bit longer than King of Tokyo but I like the strategic decisions you have to make.

Fast, tactical and fun. This will probably become a staple of the lunch hour game breaks.

What can I say, we really do play it in about 8-10 minutes. Once you get this down, it's easy. Doesn't hurt I always win this one.

Played 3 times today. This is portable enough that if you have a nice secluded place to eat lunch that it works.
