My current thread about portable games may not go far enough. So, here's another question.

Poll
What do you think of pocket-size games?
I have a favorite one (see my post below) and carry it around.
I love games so compact that they'll fit in a coat pocket.
I like 'em, but I don't always carry one around; just sometimes.
Cute idea, but I've never found one I like very much.
I used to carry one around, but it never got played, so I stopped.
Perfect for waits at restaurants, airports, and so forth.
Always handy for picnics, camping trips, days at the beach, etc.
Silly little gimmicks; I prefer real games.
I have another take on this; see my post below.

I always have tichu and Frank's zoo in my purse. Cardgames are portable.

I have an iPhone and UniWar. Good as it gets.

(I carry around a pack of cards in my work bag -- Hearts and Drug Dealer take care of any sweeps.)
