We're finally going back to Australia for a few weeks in August to see my wife's family. This has been the longest time between trips (4 years) so it has been a longtime coming.

We won't have a ton of time to play; we'll be busy catching up with family and friends while we are there and most of them are not gamers. So my travel box will be smaller than usual - some solo games will be of the essence I think.

Of course I'll need some variety so here's what I hope to take....

If you see ideas of other games you think I would enjoy based on these, please feel free to add them; some criteria:

- they need to be small!!!!
- nothing vulgar; I have a 12 year old and I am visiting family with kids that age and younger
- not too many parts even if they fit in a compact space

So here's what I am thinking so far...

I got given this through one of the Thrift generosity box exchanges and found it pretty enjoyable. I can spend my time playing against the system.

This will also make the box; my son enjoys this one and I think the push your luck mechanism will go over well.

I'm hoping this may be small enough to fit in and deliver in time to make it as well.

EDIT: changed the photo to the version I'd take which plays up to 10 people; I'll still take my orange bell.
