Travel games

Post  karl_b on Wed 07 Aug 2013, 13:50

Does anyone have any suggestions for good games to travel with/take camping? I'm going away for a few days and thought I'd take a couple of things with me - Hanabi and A.N.Other. Something small-ish, simple, fairly robust and not likely to blow away would be good. I considered Bang! and The Resistance, but as there are only likely to be 2-4 of us I didn't think they'd really work.

King of Tokyo packs up well, it is basically a dice game with cards. Plays well for 2-4

Tichu, a great chinese trick taking card game. You can play it with a normal deck of cards (with jokers). Will require all four to play though and the rules mean a couple of practice rounds will be needed to get everyone used to the rules.

There's plenty of great card games: like Fluxx, Wizard, Citadels or Love Letter.

If you want a board game, KoT would be good, as Mike suggested. Forbidden Island's also robust, you'd just need space to lay it out.

Thanks for the suggestions. We went with Pirate Fluxx and one called Panic Lab, which the other half picked as the tin looked cute. Basic premise of grabbing tiles, representing ameoba, based on the roll of 4 dice. Simple but tricky, as these things always are - I'll bring it down some time.
