After spending a fortune on games the last couple months, I want my next few games to be free Print & Play games because being an adult is hard. What are your go-to PnP games? My only requirement is that they don't have too many pages because printer ink is expensive.

30 Rails is a good one to start out with...just print out a page for each player and find two different colored dice and pens and you are good to go

Uses a mechanic similar to Karuba or Take it Easy, but selection and placement is governed by the dice.

You have looked through the PnP contests here?

https://boardgamegeek.com/thread/1726893/2017-two-player-pri... is the current 2 player PnP contest and some of the entries are printer friendly.

I agree - check out the BGG contests.

The current 9 card contest means that all entries take just 1 page to be printed (often double sided):
The 2017 9-card Nanogame PnP Design Contest!

I have an entry in the 9 card contest, and although the cards are double sided, the backs are just for optional opponents, so you could just print out the fronts. The game is [WIP] "Pocket Landship" - A Submission to the 2017 9 Card Nanogame PnP Contest (CONTEST Ready)

Have fun searching for a game you like.

I second 30 rails! Great game, only one sheet of paper to print out.

Also Pencil Park, just one page to print out, giving you 9 different layouts to play.

I understand you :) Totally. So have a check here: Magic Realm Light, a very good fantasy. Also, check Lou Coatney free wargames.

Also:

Germania: Drusus Campaigns

Canvas Eagles -> HIGHLY suggested!!!!!

Unconditional Surrender Case Blue -> SAME HERE!!!!

Spanish Fury Sail -> AND AGAIN!!!!

Montebello -> if you're on napoleonic brigade level, get it!

+1 to 30 Rails.

Also, Utopia Engine is good, but to save on ink don't print out the lengthy rulebook. The two standard adventures sheets are really nice looking and are recommended for your first couple of plays, but once you are comfortable with the gameplay you can switch to the single page low-ink version.

All the stuff on Good Little Games is worth looking at. 18/27 card games, so two or three pages to print at most.

Another +1 for 30 Rails. Really worth printing out and playing. She has also just released a River variant that adds an extra twist.

My other favourite is Dungeon Construction Kit: Cursed!, tho it does require a bit of printing (and is solo only). Well worth it tho.

Yeomen: The 9 Card Agincourt Game

Great little game that is only 9 cards. You will need a few cubes and dice.
