Just wondering is there any decent game out there that can be played in under 10 min? Studying for final shake and was wondering if there is any game that does not involve much thinking, but just dumb fun that can be played fast? Any opinions?

Most simple kids games:

Hungry Hippos
Loopin' Louie
Batik
Connect Four

A few adult games which are fast:

Liar's Dice
Coda
Light Speed
Carcassonne (using 5 mins / side on a chess clock)
Backgammon

Take care,
Michael Becker

In the wonderful game, Bonaparte at Marengo, this is how to get nasty Frenchies out of a village.

The same can be said for Deflexion (aka Khet).

You can play a game in a few minutes. If you have 20 minutes you can play a match.

A few other suggestions:

Racetrack - playable with graph paper and pencil.
Tabletop Freeze Tag - only needs the change in your pocket.
Chunky Fighters - only some custom dice (haven't played, but sounds quick).
For Sale - Cards and a few dozen tokens (about 10-15 mins/game).

Fast and fun? Somebody is calling nestorgames?

- Hippos & Crocodiles (5 minutes game):



- The expansion: Buffalos



- Yavalath (very fast and tactical):



- TRITT (same):



- Querni (light and fun!):




I hope this helps.

Néstor
