My wife and I tried our hands at Lords of Waterdeep and King of Tokyo this past weekend. My wife loves the simplicity and fun of KoT, while I love the subtle complexity of LoW, not to mention the fantastic components and storage system (wish more board games would do this!).

I solitarily playing Magic the Gathering, which tested my decks against Hydra Face the Challenge Deck.

The Hydra is really a “bug” annoying to face.

My husband and I played The Magnificent Race for the first time this weekend. I really liked it and can’t wait to play with a full set of 4 players as soon as possible.
Some of my favorite 30 min games are: Ticket to Ride Card Game, For Sale, Innovation (2 players), Guillotine, and Bohnanza.

I played Star Trek Catan and Battlestar Galactica with friends and family. I tried out the Cylon leader and liked it and the Cylons won!

My group had plans for a big game night to celebrate one of the guys (finally) graduating college, but some snow and ice put a stop to that. It became a solo Pathfinder Adventure Card Game night instead.

As for under 30 minute games, our favorite is probably Summoner Wars. Sometimes a game will go longer, but most are well under 30 minutes.

7 Wonders is our hands-down favorite 30-minutes-or-less game right now. Hopefully we can get a few games in!

Got the chance to play some more of The Walking Dead Board Game: The Best Defense yesterday, and it will be the last time – I’ll be updating my review to reflect that.

I moved recently, so everything’s in storage except for my new kickstarted Zombicide stuff.

Game playing options are low for anything not on my computer.

Gonna play some Krosmaster, but Ninja v Ninja is my fave for a short game (10-15 minutes each).

I just got a bunch of games in the mail but I have to wrap them for Christmas. It is going to be a tough 2 weeks. Until then, we will try to get Spy Alley back out for my daughter who loves it (under 30 minutes).

I’d like to try K2, Firefly and Walking Dead: The Best Defense over the weekend. Probably won’t be able to play them all though.

As for “30 minutes or less” games, I like Jaipur, Zombie Dice and Mr. Jack. Also, Frank’s Zoo (not on the site).

Still playing Pathfinder ACG a lot. Have played all 11 characters through Perils + Burnt Offerings + 2 characters through Skinsaw solo. Planning on doing more Skinsaw. And got to play Bioshock Infinite with a neighbor of mine.
