Interested in what people recommend for games that can be played outdoors with a tiny footprint. My wife and I enjoy sitting outside in front of a fire pit in Adirondack chairs from spring to early fall. We just finished Sherlock Holmes Consulting Detective: Jack the Ripper & West End Adventures and were looking for something else other than the original SHCD which we will obviously pick up. Prior to that we played a streamlined, house-ruled version of Trivial Pursuit without the board. The only space we have is a tiny end table and the somewhat wide arms of the Adirondack chairs. Thanks in advance!

Perhaps Hive Pocket?

Love Letter can also be played with very limited space.

Similar to Sherlock is Mythos Tales

I have regular Hive but it isn't a big hit with my wife. Something about abstracts that doesn't appeal. Love letter is a good idea. I have it and it barely takes up any space.

Mythos Tales was not on my radar but definitely looks like a game we can play outside.

Thanks for the suggestions!

Maybe Jaipur?
Or Kingdomino with a small tray on your lap

I'd say Santorini. If you sleeve the cards and get a waterproof board of the same dimensions, then it's totally an outdoor game.
