Fast-Playing "Lunchtime" Games

These games are card-driven strategy games (like Twilight Struggle and the CDG genre created by designer Mark Herman) that are specifically designed to be played in 30-60 minutes. They are smaller-footprint than our longer CDGs, generally including a 22 x 17" map and 40-75 cards.

Each game features a significant strategy challenge and high replayability, and immerses the player in an historical or current crisis. Because of their small footprint and short playing time, these games are perfect for play over a lunch hour or for multiple plays during a gaming evening. They present an excellent introduction for those new to card-driven strategy games, while offering plenty of strategic depth and challenge for veteran players.
