I'm looking for a game to take to a cemetery.

I'm doing Cinespia this weekend, and there is about a two hour wait from the time we get in to the time the movie starts. There will be three of us playing on a blanket in low light. I'm the only gamer, but the other two pick things up quickly.

So, I'm looking for a game with the following attributes:
*Plays well at 3 players
*Light to Medium weight
*Play time under 1hr (ideally, closer to 20-30min)
*Smallish footprint
*Smallish box
*Easy to learn/teach

Some of my games I'm considering are:
Antidote
Love Letter: Batman
Fairy Tale

I'll only want to take one or two games with me.

Formula Motor Racing is really fun. Tiny footprint. Plays quick, and really fun from 3 to 6 players.

There's a bunch of lightweight card games out there, like Exploding Kittens.
Otherwise, if you like things with a little more meat, there's always Coup - which is fun, but I prefer it with larger groups of 4 or 5.
Saboteur is fun as well.
Race for the Galaxy is one that I take vacationing. It can be fun, and runs about 30-45 minutes. It doesn't have the same interaction as the others, though.
Sounds like an interesting evening. Have fun!

Carcassonne is always a good option and with only the base game it doesn't get too big.

Codenames has a two player variant that can be fun with three players.

Some others are:
Crossing
Lanterns: The Harvest Festival
Splendor
Zombie Dice
Win, Lose, or Banana

Hey! You don't know where that cursor has been!

How about Akua? Now on Kickstarter with one day left, Akua features game play that is entirely tracked on a single, passable board. It's by Small Box Games, so you know it's good -- and it's hard to beat the $10 price tag.

No, I am not a shill.

Edit: Never mind, I missed that it will be needed for this weekend.

Shoot for the moon. Even if you miss, you'll land among the stars, where you will be forced to drift aimlessly farther into the vast, empty abyss of space until a lack of food, water and oxygen causes you to succumb to Death's cold embrace.
