Not necessarily a beer and pretzels game when I think of a game for a tavern the first that come to mind are those that are there like Out of BGG Scope billiards, skiball, candlestick bowling, pinball...

next I think of games that might be there or brought with crafted components... like crokinole, chess, checkers, hive, cribbage...

and finally I think of a good themed or drinking related game which is probably brought there like Red Dragon Inn.

I'd like to hear what you think is the ideal game for a pub. Feel free to add beer and pretzel games too if you'd like.

Cheers!

Matt Leacock was shooting for a Civ game that could be played in a pub.

The name says it all.

And it's companion:

Taverne de la Licorne


I think beer and pretzels should be requirement.

This game is representative of nice games with all wood pieces that won't be harmed by casual spills, and look interesting enough they might entice others to want to play.

Others in this category are games like Quoridor, Cityscape, Columns, and Fire and Ice.

You are mighty adventurers who are building a party to go wage battle with nasties. What better way to summon your courage than to raise a pint!

This even has a plastic laminated "board", in case some beer should get spilled on it.

It's basically "Rummy", but with yummy looking and sounding ingredient cards. Not a bad little game, in truth.

This one works. It lends itself to drunken theatricality. Portable and small enough to play in a pub.

this is light and simple enough to teach to strangers (new friends) who are not gamers. it can be played in a highly inebriated state. it is not a strategic or deep game, but it is highly addictive and sweetly balanced. good pub game!

A print-and-play vampire-themed drinking game with gameplay interesting enough to be fun (even for the designated drivers), but simple enough that things don't get too confusing when people start to get drunk. The printable aspect means you don't have to worry if the board gets messed up. You can just print another for the next time.
