I'm looking for suggestions for a game that will do the following:

- scalable. Plays 2+ nicely
- simple. No more than a weight of 2.6 (something like pandemic and catan. I'd like to Be able to memorize the rules. Not have to check the rule book each time I play)
- 1 hr to max of 1.5 (I don'tind extended time if it's worth it. )
- fun. Everytime I play pandemic I think "this is such a great game" so something that will give me that feeling
- somewhat competitive. What I mean is a game where players can "screw over" fellow gamers but this isn't a requirement to win

Sounds like a lot ! Thanks in advance!

Finca and Through the Desert both fulfill your requirements. They're extremely easy to teach, so I think that means that it would be easy for you to learn the rules without having to consult the instruction sheet.

This is an excellent, easy to teach and play game. A lot of my nongamer family and friends love this as well :)

Ticket to Ride! Which one to choose:

1) Ticket to Ride - the base game features the simplest rules and a USA map.
2) Ticket to Ride Europe - adds two more rules to the base game, and features a map of Europe.
3) Ticket to Ride: Nordic Countries - for 2-3 players only, featuring a map of Northern Europe.

These three are each stand-alone games, they're not expansions.
