I have recently had less time for big box gaming as I have been travelling a lot with my sports team. To kill time, I have found a few card games to play with my room mate in various hotel rooms, usually just the two of us. We have enjoyed Trambahn, Bali and Medici the card game over the last few months.

Any recommendations for similar card games or other small box games to travel with? Must play well with two.

Games that have gone over well with me and my partner;

Archaeology: The New Expedition - OOP but if you can find it, it is very worth it.

Morels - Picked this up a few weeks ago and have been enjoying it

The Fox in the Forest - Straight up 2p trick taking game, quick and re playable.

Peace

You may find some ideas on this geeklist that my wife and I maintain and rate.

https://boardgamegeek.com/geeklist/206691/you-and-me-and-cof...

Many of these games, particularly the card games, are easily suited to travel.

Of the board games, some good ones are out of print, but worth getting if you can find copies in your price zone.

Akrotiri
Agricola: All Creatures Big & Small
Dracula
Pillars of the Earth: Builders Duel


One classic that has recently been republished is Kahuna.

For small packaging, there's Mint Works -- a simple but fun worker placement game that all fits into a metal container the size of an Altoid box.
