Lately a friend and I have been playing Memoir 44 at lunch. He's totally addicted to the game and I have no trouble giving him a match.
What other games can you setup/play at a lunch hour and really get your times worth... without going over the hour.

I've been playing Blokus during lunch recently. It's one of the few games that just keeps getting better each time I play it. After the first couple times I didn't like it very much, but I stuck with it, and am enjoying it much more now.

There are a bunch of people that play chess on lunch break where I work... a few games on a five minute clock. I've introduced Mueterer to a well received response.

Brilliant (and fast) head-to-head card game. Play it without the special cards first to get a feel for the basic mechanics then add them in as you like.

Similar to Oceania in that it's a 2-player tile game. You can play 2 games in 30 minutes or so. Very tactical. Comes in a half-sized box so it's a little more portable than some games. It's an excellent abstract with nice artwork.

For lunch break this fits very well: If you know the rules you can play 2 games in 1 hour

Great great game with high tension and interesting choices packed into 30 minutes. Best with 3 or 4 though.

This little Tic-Tac-Toe variant sports a paper-thin theme (virus vs. the anti-virus? please stop already!) but is an interesting little brain burner. Hack Attack features cool bits and a board that expands as the game progresses. Several games could easily be played even on a teacher's lunch hour (40 minutes where I shape youthful minds.)

Yes. Robots play soccer too. But a brutal version of it!

ROBOSOCCER is a board game of movement and ball control whose objective is to score a goal (taking your ball to the last row) before your opponent does. Move your robots, and push, and jump above your opponent's robots until you score a goal.
