...and this is the first Olympics since our group got heavily into board games. We usually play co-ops, but it could be fun to break out a good Olympics-themed game. Is there such a beast? There used to be a Decathlon game from Avalon Hill, I think, but I don't know of any others.

Any recommendations?

Reiner Knizia's Decathlon is light but entertaining.

First spit-take I have had in a while. Well done.

Reiner Knizia's Decathlon is a possibility, especially as it is free and I could assemble it quickly.

An older game, ADG's World Cup Tournament Football has an Olympic soccer tournament option. I think it uses fewer countries if I remember correctly.

I hear that they play Pandemic at Rio.

Indeed, it may be a new version of Pandemic Legacy: Season 1, considering how it affects future generations.
