I'm looking for a game to play with my wife and possibly others in my family. I'd like it to be cooperative. I'd like it to be medium weight. I'd like it to be small-size that plays in 30-60 minutes. I'm thinking maybe some type of card game(?). Open to about any theme.

We already have:
- Hanabi (we like it fairly well, on the light side)
- Pandemic (my wife and I like it, it's a bit bigger than I'm looking for here)
- Escape: The Curse of the Temple (too crazy for my wife, kids and I love it)
- Legendary: A Marvel Deck Building Game (one of my favorites, bit on bigger side)
- Shadows over Camelot (love it, just finished painting minis, bit on bigger side and longer playtime)

I know you already have Pandemic, but Pandemic: The Cure, the smaller yet still thematic (and faster playing) dice version, would work well here.

The Grizzled
Samurai Spirit
Space Hulk: Death Angel – The Card Game is popular, though I have to say I hate it.

If you're willing to get a game 2 player only as well check out The Ravens of Thri Sahashri. It is really unintuitive in terms of the ramifications of what you do not being apparent until far in the future, but once you get the feel for the things that make it unintuitive also means there are a lot of levels to think about, it has the right length, and is generally failry inexpensive. As for size it depends if you are looking for a small game box, or small table footprint. It does great on the former, not so much on the latter.

Beyond Baker Street takes Hanabi and turns it up a notch.

Thanks for the suggestions so far.

How about Onirim or the other games in that universe? Any good for 2 players or just one? And any fun.

So I ended up getting The Grizzled. I've now played it twice as 2 player (won first game, lost second game) and once as a 4 player game (lost). The advice here helped as did advice as my FLGS. It was a good choice for what I was looking for. If you have any other recommendations to make (or feedback on the omniverse games) feel free to still comment below. BTW I did forget to mention in my list that we do own Forbidden Island which was wisely suggested by Scott. Thanks everyone!
