Wil Wheaton and friends played Love Letter and Coup on Tabletop which are two games all about deduction and bluffing. Both of these games might sound a bit weird but they are well worth playing as a nice stop gap game.
Love Letter is a game which sees you trying to get your message of affection to the Princess but all the other people at court are very nosy indeed and they want to find out what’s going on and then send their own to her.
Once again, it might sound a bit weird, but it makes for a really fun game. You will develop your own meta within the game where you’ll start to work out when someone is lying or flat out trying to skirt your suspicions.
Coup sets you all up as megacorporations of the near future where you’re trying to exert your control by staging a Coup for control of the planet. In the same vein as Love Letter there is a degree of bluffing and lying going around but possibly more so here…
The duel identity cars addition to Coup means that you could be bluffing your way through the entire game protecting yourself and subverting the truths of other players. It’s another great pocket game you can carry around with you practically anywhere and have fun with.
I’d give both of these a go!
