Hi Gamers! I'm looking for 1 v 1 games that can be played in under 5 minutes. Something like Connect 4 is a good example, but maybe you know others that are lesser known. Essentially anything that could be played 1 v 1 at a party that can be done quickly.

If you know of any mini games, side missions, or mechanics in other games that you know that could work as a 1 v 1 quick duel that could be great too.

These ideas can be strategic games, quick puzzles, or even physical games. Dr. Eureka is a great example of physical game that is along the lines of what I'm looking for as it can be turned into a duel easily.

Any ideas greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Enigma has 4 puzzle types with a bunch of puzzles for each type. So you could have the players each pick separate puzzle types and see who finishes first

Ubongo has 1 puzzle type but multiple sets of pieces, so you could have two players working on the same puzzle type (or even the same puzzle) at the same time.

Think Hive with dice, and faster.

Also Amazons and Lines of Action
