Waiting Games

We all dread waiting but it is an inevitable part of our lives. The doctor, the dentist, the mechanic, etc.  We always have appointments to go to and that means we wait...You might as well use your time wisely and play more games.   So today's post is dedicated to waiting games, games you can play while you impatiently  wait.  These games are short in duration and small in size for easy travel. Check them out!


This game is for 2-4 players, ages 10 and up and takes about 30 minutes.   Your goal is to play cards to create the best spread for tea time.    When you play a card, you can read the flavour text out loud (in your best British accent).  This will definitely make passing the time more enjoyable.


This card game is great for a short wait.  It is for 2-6 players, ages 8 and up.  A game can take 5-20 minutes.  The cards played in this game change the rules so every game you play is different.  Make sure you play with someone who has played before you pick this game up. It makes learning the game easier.

Continental Express

This one is for 2-4 players, ages 8 and up.  One game takes 20 to 30 minutes.  The players choose train cards for their station that will help them make the most of their secret contract and complete objectives.  I enjoy the special character cards that grant special actions.

Roll For It

This game is also for ages 8 and up but I've played it with kids as  young as 5 with no problems.   2-4 people can play it and it takes 20 -30 minutes.  In this game, players take turns trying to roll the dice combinations indicated on the cards.  It is very easy to learn and fast paced.

So next time you are waiting, find a small table or piece of floor and play a game.   If you have kids or a spouse with you, this is a great way to make family time.  If not, don't be afraid to ask your fellow waiting room people join in too.  Happy waiting!
