Ascending Empires, although as a 4X space game, it's kinda-sorta wargamey.

My favorite card game is probably still Citadels, which is not wargamey at all -- well, except for the fact that you can destroy other players' buildings and assassinate their characters, I guess.

I love Uwe Rosenberg games. Ora et Labora (for multiplayer) and Fields of Arle (for two-player) are two of my favorites of his. I taught a fellow wargamer Orléans this week and he really enjoyed it. For a light game when you only have an hour or so, I enjoy Istanbul. There are others but those are the ones I play more than anything else.

Based on recent plays, it's these three...

Love Letter
Splendor
Citadels

Great little games that are engaging and don't overstay their welcome.

This is an "any time, any where" game for me.

7 Ages

Although I've had a difficult time with this one recently because my wife is just so damn brutal at it.

Yomi

I've been playing video fighting games for over 20 years, and this captures the nature of high-level fighting game play pretty damn well.

Most Days of Wonder games (except small world). And I like bootleggers, which is kinda like a wargame. And if you consider a drinking game, YOU GOTTA TRY 'HEY THATS MY FISH!'

Perhaps, you folks should spend "quality time" upon BSW with other BGG folks, as 'moi' already had years ago, of which included Aldie within "Attribut" there, and plenty another for 'Carcassonne', 'Web of Power', 'TransAmerica', or whatever you find of interests.

* High Frontier - It doesn't get nearly the playtime I would like, but it is satisfying like very few other games
* Panamax - Good medium-to-heavy euro
* Glen More - very unique factory builder

Ascension with the Return of the Fallen expansion.

And, sometimes, Ticket to Ride, but only with the 1910 expansion.
