Sharon and I are flying to Colorado in February. The first flight to Chicago is about 8 or 9 hours, the transfer to Denver is 2 hours with a 2 hour stopover (I think).
What good games can we take that are aeroplane compatible to help burn the hours away?
In spite of its OOP nature, I would feel quite remiss not to encourage inquiry into ACE OF ACES: HANDY ROTARY or POWERHOUSE SERIES. Pretty short, fast-moving, perhaps the most portable game ever designed, and theme appropriate to venue as well...
