In your opinion, what's the most compact game (fewest components, like a card game with very few cards or something) other than dice games that play really well?

Star Patrol: Carrier Commander . I hid this game in the partners phone case ( behind the phone where it clips in) for a week . Is that compact enough?


Okay so it's a galaxy note , but still a lot of game for the size.

Eminent Domain: Microcosm is my most compact, yet super awesome game of choice.

At the next size up, which is generally about 2-4 times as many cards, but just a little larger, I've got a bunch of choices:
Pixel Tactics, Sellswords, Epic Card Game, Star Realms, Mijnlieff, For The Win, Hive Pocket, The Great Heartland Hauling Co., Harbour.

There's a kickstarter for a game that fits on a postcard. A single postcard.

Forgot the name.

For two players? Chess.
For more than two, probably Skull if you're looking to absolutely minimize components.
