I travel to conventions a few times a year.
And with game conventions going on I was thinking.

Any suggestions for small/compact games to take on trips.
Easy to learn may also be required as I may play with non-gamers.

I am thinking Battle Line.

The game is small enough to take in a case or an overnight bag for those who are on the road or in the air a lot. And since there are no sharp objects or liquids the game should make it through Airport security.

Suggestions

Reading your recent posts has been like dipping my bottom over and over into a bath of the silkiest oils and creams.

Colossal Arena - one of my very favorite games, you can take just the cards and the chips, and plays great from 2-5.

Maybe you should consider the Piecepack or the Icehouse game system. Lots of games in a very small package Those two never stay at home when I go on a trip...

A Cribbage board holding a standard deck of cards is a must. It's easy to handle, and you may find an opponent just by pulling it out if you stuck in the Vegas Airport for 6 hours like I was.

Piecepack or Icehouse are good stuff too. Also if you like wargames check the solitaire stuff from Victory Point Games. I also love most of the old Microgames, like Ogre and GEV.
