The local High School library is adding games to its library. What games do you think will be a good fit for that environment? Class periods are 40 min. They will be adding a game club for after school for one hour.

My former teen group enjoyed this and played the heck out of it.
A couple others that went well were:
Pandemic
Betrayal at House on the Hill
(We met for 3 hours after school)
Star Wars: X-Wing Miniatures Game
The Resistance
Seasons
Ticket to Ride
Flash Point: Fire Rescue
And Legendary: A Marvel Deck Building Game
We tried to introduce new games all the time, and had access to a substantial game library.

A most interesting family of trick taking games played mostly in Central European countries although the internet has made it more available to those in the States. See also Tarot for the popular French game

Fairly interuptable, and short rounds.
