Hi All

So recently my department has started trying to get some fun activities going around the office and I would like to incorporate board gaming to some extent. I was thinking of getting some quick games to play if someone has like 10 or 15 minutes to spare. The games I have in mind are Onitama and Hive but I'm not necessarily only looking for two player games or abstract games, it could be anything fun and short.

Does anyone have some good recommendations?

If you want something that is quick yet on the heavier side of things; try Mottainai. It usually plays in around 15 minutes and goes down well in our office.

Thanks for the great suggestions so far, I'm really liking the idea of FUSE, I think a real time game would be a cool quick play.

There's no simple explanation for anything important any of us do, and yeah the human tragedy consists of the necessity of living with the consequences, under pressure, under pressure. -Courage (For Hugh Maclennan): The Tragically Hip

You may want to peruse this list of mine: One Man's Adventures In Introducing Games To His All Female, Non-Gamer, Co-workers At Lunch.

To it I'd also add Red7.

Hope this helps.
