Best airplane table games

Recommended Posts

I’m just about to order The Struggle for Catan to play when flying, and I know there are loads of other obvious titles, but what are the forums favourite airplane table sized games for three players?

Three players is pretty specific for a game on a plane! 

 

I always bring Space Hulk Death Angel when I travel. Not sure how it plays with three people but it's fine for one and I usually travel alone. And it is a bit unwieldy for plane tables but it's fine for airport tables and hotel rooms etc. 

 

I also always bring Love Letter and Pit just because they are easy to carry around and a few starter packs of Magic. I also have a travel/magnetic set of the original Catan but never bring it because once you open it you can't get everything back in the box...

Ok, two to four players, to cover playing in airports, hotels, etc, but I was mainly thinking games we can play when sat three in a row.

 

Love Letter is always the first to be packed, but I haven’t heard of Pit. I’ll look into that now.

 

I’ve been thinking about travel Catan for a few years now. Is it really that hard to put away afterwards?

Ticket to Ride New York - also doubles up as the best version of Ticket to Ride anyway in my opinion.

Sail to India - all the fun of a difficult decision making Euro in a fraction of the space and time.

Jaipour - has been a favourite of mine on trains or just generally couples gaming. Two player only though.

Brave Rats is usually what my wife and I play on a plane.  You need very little space.  2player only, though. 

A typical game only lasts about 4minutes so you could keep rotating.
