Well the topic is evident from the forum title. All I would add is that I own and have played several games but those I favor most are on the shorter side. A list of the games I own and like that fit this criteria (a star next to the game indicates that I really really like it) are: imperial settlers*, splendor*, pandemic, King of Tokyo, five tribes (sometimes), dominion, codenames*, viceroy, deception: murder in Hong kong*, roll for the Galaxy, resistance* (although a little burned out), 7 wonders*, 7 wonders duel*, broom service, and Kingsburg* (sometimes). Others that I own but find just okay are betrayal at house on hill (sometimes), race for the Galaxy, cash n guns, and abyss. Any and all recommendations are very much appreciated!

If you enjoy Pandemic, you Might enjoy Ghost Stories! Solo and with two players the game should take under an hour. The more players you add the more time it will take, but this game has quickly become my favorite co-op.

You may enjoy Room 25 if you enjoy tile games or games where you are "exploring" the board. This one has the added benefit that it also has a traitor mechanic.

My last recommendation would be Escape: Curse of the Temple. It is a real time game that will only last 10 minutes as it's played to a soundtrack. There are a few others like this, Space Alert being the most notable from my experience.

Hope that helps!

Hey. I also like shorter games. One of my favorites is Star Realms, soon to reimplemented as the fantasy version Hero Realms.

This game typically can be played in 45 minutes, and certainly under/around 60 minutes even with the full compliment of 6 players.

It's a super solid auction, route building, in game economy/stock mechanics along with solid time tracker that make this a game you should take a look at.

enjoy!

I always love to play Las Vegas and it plays fast and fun!
We can usually get a game of San Juan done fairly quickly. Still love that game so much after all these years.
Indigo passes by fairly quickly for my group as well.

Definitely check out one of Chuddyk's games such as Innovation or Mottainai. They pack a great punch while maintaining brevity.

Well if you want to play games in 60 minutes then i will recommend you for escape games. I also play this game generally. It is very interesting and enjoyable game. In real life games you will be locked in a room for 60 minutes with your team members and you have to solve some puzzles with your team-mates using your mind and some hidden clues to escape yourself. you can also play these games online. Just play this game once and i assured you that you will reaalllyyyy enjoy it and alootttttt.

The game has a recorded CD soundtrack that plays for 30 minutes. So unless you hit the "Pause" button, the game play lasts precisely for 30 minutes ....

Not 29 ....

Not 31 ....

Jamaica and Tokaido are two great games that play in under 60mins.
