The past few months have required me to work a lot more hours than I would like. This leads to a condition best described as "the next closest thing to brain dead." As a result, there are times when I want to play a game, just not one that requires a lot of deep thinking. Here, then, is my geeklist of games that, thankfully, don't require a whole lot of brain power to enjoy.

Feel free to add your own.

I decided to kick off this list with this easy dice-roller. Requires some counting skills, but not much else. A great one to play after those long 14 hour work days.

This one is a little more involved, but only just.

I may be tired, but I still want to make "pew-pew" noises!

I played Risk Express a long time ago and enjoyed it a lot more than I thought I would. Never could find it, though. When this re-theme came out, I pounced on it.

A favorite of my friends for quite a while. Still gets a lot of table time. Only major decision is who to screw over.

Of course this is on this list. Of course I still play it. I ain't afraid to admit it.

Doesn't take much thinking, but it sure is fun to do cheesy kung-fu shouts when you're tired.

You just need some precision to roll the dice and hit the others in the arena
