I took the Cheapass verion with me for basecamp. Usually plays well with new players or those with limited attention spans which is what I got this week. I don;t consider it for backpacking though.

I'm going to bring this. I rethemed a Star Wars blue card deck from the 70s to love letter and put them in sleeves and ina box with a few tokens. I failed to mention there will be 3 of us. I hope this works.

I suppose I could take a deck of cards. I wish I knew how to play Haggis or Tichu. Those play well with 3?

I have this but I don't want to bring poker chips and you sort of need them for the betting. it's fun, I think it would play well with 3, but like I said no poker chips. I could use pebbles or something I suppose.

6. Board Game: Dominoes [Average Rating:5.44 Overall Rank:15409]

We hade a lot of fun with a set of double-9 dominoes and a game called Chickenfoot, which can be played by 2 - 7 players. It gets rather addictive, and at Scout camp one summer, the guys had to set up a tournament in rounds because so many want to play.

There are numerous games that can be played with the same set of dominoes.

Unlike cards, dominoes are durable and washable, so they're good for outdoor use. Sets are inexpensive and therefore cheaper than Euro-card and board games to replace if lost in whole or in part.

I love this game. It's fun to not say anything about the 'coercion' of sending a card around just to get chips = wait for them to realize what you're doing!

A simple dice game is super light. If you can't track down this title, there are plenty of other options. Here are a few:
Knatsch


Excape


Yahtzee
