I am bike touring around the UK at the moment and would like to have a game with me to play with others.

Space is a limiting factor so please no big space hoarders.

I'm not worried on what type of game it is.

If you are in the UK maybe I could swing by for a game. Currently in Orkney and heading South. So a second recommend is a place to come and play. Maybe you coughs just private message me for this.

How many players are you wanting and will you be playing with gamers or non-gamers? If you just plan to play with whoever you happen to meet, then probably an ordinary deck of playing cards would be your best bet. It's probably easier to convince random non-gamers to play a card game than a modern designer board game.

Race for the Galaxy and San Juan both become quite compact.

Love Letter travels really well. Took it on an overseas trip to Ireland, and it got played in the airport and on buses quite a bit.

Which games would you recommend with 52 deck of cards?

Great idea. Race is a bit complicated for me if I play with randoms for a one off. No experience of San Juan although I know they are similar.

That is a great suggestion.

Thought I'd pop in since I'm a aspiring bike tour person (I've done some overnights and some longer supported tours, but no long fully loaded tours)

No Thanks! is small and pretty simple.
How about Blueprints?
Codenames is already pretty small, but could be compacted even more.

I'm guessing Mega Civilization is right out

FFG Condottiere.
Compact. Easy to teach and learn but deeper than it looks. Very flexible in numbers. Good at all numbers from 2-6. Works well with newbies.

Bohnanza

Meets pretty much the same criteria as Condottiere. Plenty of game in there despite the compactness. I have always found that beginners like it, and it would be good in a youth hostel with a newly met group.

Check Attack the pack, a card game about cycling. I think it's even from Britain. I just can't link it because I only get a million versions of Attack Wing packs...

If you have a table to setup on, I'd go with Tiny Epic Kingdoms, Bohnanza and Splendor (without the box).

Hanabi -- it is elegant in its simplicity, has a lot of game in a small package, and plays well (but amazingly differently) with 2-5 players.

San Juan has a similar dynamic to race -- but is noticeably simpler. Might be better with one-offs.

I do like this game. I own a copy and may need to get it sent to me!

I found it. It looks interesting although the price for a fairly unreiewed game with 11 ratings concerns me.

Yes indeed, I have room for mega civ it's just the set up.

I have 6 nimnt which I realise is versatile in letting me play no thanks, the game and a few others.

I will check out blue prints.
