Hi there, after looking through my collection I have noticed that I don't own a game with card drafting as the primary mechanic. Are there any games you know of that pull this mechanic off well?
Generally games that accommodate more players are greater than less players also we tend to like games that are on the shorter side, 2 hours tops

Thanks!!!

7 Wonders would be an obvious choice (up to 7, short playtime)

Among the Stars is also very good (up to 4 w/o expansion, moderate playtime)

Bye

You can also look into Notre Dame, where you do a card draft to determine what orders to play during turns.

If you're having hull problems I feel bad for you son, I've got 99 problems but a breach ain't one.

Lost Legends. Even though the drafting element is very light, it still feels significant and even late into the game you'll be commenting about a good draft you made early.

Fairy Tale is perhaps the most distilled form of the mechanic.

Sushi Go was what I was going to recommend also, it's very light, works more as a filler. If you want a game where drafting is the main mechanic though, it's a good place to start.

Among the Stars looks great, but it's out of print at the moment, I've had my eye on it for a while now.

Very interesting card drafting/scoring-combined mechanism. Plays 2-4 (best with 3 imho) in about 40 min.
