Greetings! Will be appreciated if you could recommend short duration games
Play Time - 45-60mins.
Group Size - 4 to 5

We enjoy strategy games with lots of player interaction and low luck.

Some games we have been playing a lot are 7 Wonders, Medici, Citadels
If we have 1.5 - 2 hrs - we play Prince of Florence

Thank you in advance
Mark

Saint Malo is a great game, fast play and easy to learn

If you like Citadels, you'll love Mascarade, also by Bruno Faidutti

China - You'll get two games in 60 minutes. And the decisions are tough and fast.

I was going to say No Thanks!, but that might be too short. You could probably get 4 or 5 rounds in in 45 minutes.

Thank you all - for your recomendation - very much appreciated.
- No Thanks - Have it - our group did not enjoy it
- China - I may be wrong - it looks like Carcassone - which our group did
- Saint Malo - I may be wrong - it looks like Yahtzee- which our group did


Any other recommendation - our group like Niagara too

Race for the Galaxy isn't like anything you've mentioned, but it's my favourite game and plays VERY fast once all players know it. Needs an expansion to play five.

Similarly, Tournay plays very fast once everyone's up to speed. Maximum four players though.

I do not like Carcassonne at all. But I love China. Not similar at all. Carcassonne is just a tile laying game. China is a card driven area control game. The fact that you can draw from an open pool limits the luck factor, though. Games are usually decided by what you do with your cards and not luck.
