My team at work loves to play games at lunch. Problem is we only have 1/2 an hour, 3 to 6 people. and not the largest table to play on. Here's what we've been playing, what we'd like to play, and any suggestions on what we should play.

If you've found this Geeklist, and would like to suggest a game, please keep the following criteria in mind:

* We only have 1/2 an hour for lunch
* Our table is about 4 ft (maybe 5 ft, I've never measured) in diameter and has to accommodate both the game and our lunches
* We have anywhere from 2 to 6 people that are available to play on any given day

The game that started it all. I bought it on a whim, thinking it would be fun, and we've played it over 210 times now. It didn't take long before we added BANG! Dodge City, BANG! High Noon, BANG! A Fistful of Cards, and BANG! Wild West Show.

Since Bang! went over super well, I picked this up at the same store thinking it could be fun too. Unfortunately it just didn't "click" with us. Games seemed to take forever and we just don't have that much time to waste at lunch.

We don't play this that often; the board is just a bit too big for our tables. Every now and then a co-worker brings in a board his grandmother made decades ago

We've only played this a few times, which is unfortunate. I quite like it, but we have a few people in our group that detest it, so we rarely play.

If only this game could handle up to 6 people, it would practically be perfect. I guess that's why we play Coup more than Love Letter

While fun, we can only handle it once or twice a year. Not everyone in our group is a Monty Python fan (and some barely know the show/movies) so they just don't get the humour. We've also found that sometimes games can go quite long.

For about a year we go really into Tichu. But we're never quite guaranteed to have an even number of people, so we'd just end up playing asshole most times

Everyone seems too love this one as well, but like all games of Ricochet Robot, it's the least social one on the list. We don't play too much as the board barely fits on the lunch table with all of our lunches there too!

While we all love this game (we used to play cribbage at lunch a LOT), but with this game limited to 4 players it doesn't get a lot of play

I play this one over lunch, though I play it solitaire. It's 7 minutes per player (though it plays faster when you know what you're doing), so you could probably play this with 3-4 people. It's a co-op too, which might be refreshing.

All the card drafting with half of the play time. It plays like 7 Wonders with no resource costs. This is one of my favorite games because of its portability and short run time. You could probably get 2 rounds in over lunch.

A checkers-style game (with a theme) that plays up to 4. There's no reason this game shouldn't be in everyone's collection for when you just need to fill 20 minutes with a fun game.

Great little dice chucking game with gorgeous artwork. You can get 2 decks of the original version to play up to 8 or the Deluxe plays up to 8 right out of the tin. You should be able to get a couple games in over lunch.

This may be the best lunch time game I have ever come across. Tableau building plus area control...in thirty minutes! And there is an expansion that allows a 5th and 6th player. But then you are talking a significantly higher play time and foot print.
