I'm looking for a game to play with a few of my friends but we need it to be short. I got Star Realms and Star Realms: Colony Wars but it is definitely longer than 30 minutes for 3-4 players. I've been playing The Grizzled as well but it tends to run a little long. We play Sushi Go! and For Sale sometimes, but I'm looking for something a little bit more action/adventure-y. Games can be either cooperative or competitive and needs to be 30 minutes or less, including set up. Any ideas?

Some of these might be cutting it close time-wise, but you could try:

Sail to India
Imhotep
Blueprints
Traders of Osaka
Arboretum

Great suggestions! A few of these were already on my list - I think I'm looking at FUSE, Eight Minute Empires, and Age of War.

Thanks!

I don't know that I'd call them "action/adventure-y", but the following games have all done well in our group for games that play quickly, but feel very full featured:

Hey, That's My Fish!

Battle Sheep

Qin

An older classic that we still love to bring to the table, and it has a quick game time: Medici

A newer, quick game I enjoy (although it's not that good with just two): Entropy

A couple of other fantastic games that have around 30-ish minute playtimes:

Quantum
Splendor
Vikings
