Hi there,

at a friend of mine we only have a very limited space available for playing games. Moving out or buying a bigger table is not an option
Can anyone recommend some nice games that need max. 12x8 inch (30x20cm) space.
2 Player games are preferred but not essential.Any recommendation is welcome.

Thanks for sharing !

Der gute Hans hat ja schon fast alles was gut ist ^^.

Zombie Dice is one fun Game i see missing in your collection.

Bohnanza especially the new editions or Bohn To Be Wild! have Rules for 2 Players included but it could getting tight on the table.

Zoff im Zoo better with 3 Players.

greets hessi

Seriously, all you have is a table that's 12x8 inches? That's not even 1 square foot. I'm going to pretend this isn't a joke of some kind just b/c my coffee is in full effect.

1. Make a bigger playing space: Throw a piece of cardboard on that "table" and bang, tons more space. Just ask for a cardboard box the next time you're at a grocery store (or any store). You say, "no room." Well when you're done just slide the cardboard up against the wall, under a bed, or set it on the front porch.

2. So you can't buy a bigger table, but you can buy board games? I like the dedication to the hobby, that's for sure.

3. 12x8 is not a table. It's not even a stand.

4. Play on a bed. Sure you can't set up all the pieces for War of the Ring, but you can set up card games like the Pocket Battles series and others.

That size sounds comparable to an airplane tray, so...

Best Games to Play on an Airplane
Airplane Tray Table games

Also:
Games for a couch and a small folding table
My favorite small-footprint games
Great game - Small footprint
Small Footprint Spaceship Games (please add)

Or for a game that takes no table at all: New World Colony

Thanks for the constructive answers. These are the kind of games I had in mind!
When I said bigger is just no option, it was no joke. The place we are meeting is packed and just the mentioned space can be cleared easily.
And there is no bed because its kind of an office.
Maybe the expression "compulsive hoarding" gives you an idea of the playground I am talking about .....

If you ever move, don't call me. I think my last straw with moving a fiend was when I saw a box labeled "Just junk."

Reiner Knizia's Decathlon, you should really review your games collection so we know what you like and what you don't.

Try Mr. jack Pocket for a nice change of pace that works well in a tight playing area.
