Sliders – Ultra-Fast Games

The topic for this podcast came from… not having time to play games lately. The few games we’ve been playing tend to be 10 minutes or less.

These are so fast we wouldn’t even call them filler games! Normally we would play these several time in a row, but you can play them just once.

So when even a filler game is too long, let’s go for a slider game!

  • Skyrockets – so short that if we lose, we usually play again and it’s still less than 15 minutes. More forgiving than most timer-based games. Cooperative.
  • Panic Island – also cooperative, and plays in ONE minute.
  • Get the MacGuffin – up to 12 players! Silly and still very fast.
  • Pocket Paragons – super fast dueling game with lots of options.
  • Kiri-ai: The Duel – another super fast dueling game.
  • Trio – we’ve been playing a lot of this. Even with teaching it, it’s under 10 minutes.
  • Tin Spin – surprisingly fun, incredibly simple.
