Emergency Games Kit v2

Note: This has been superseded by Version 4, updated in August 2015. For a full writeup see


The second incarnation of the tiny collection of games and components I tend to carry around, an Emergency Games Kit that fits in a pocket instead of a toolbox. Updated in June 2014 to include better dice, a custom deck of cards and different chip colours. It comprises:


* A cheap 5" x 3" Tuff Bag pencil case.

* A two-sides-of-A4 PDF printout of the rules for 71 simple paper/card/dice games from the Freeze-Dried Games Pack.

* A couple of blank crossword grids for Lynx.

* A few sheets of squared paper for grid type games.

* A one-off 2" x 2.5" mini deck of cards, customised with appropriate art and corner numbers to play En Garde, Hive, Loco/Botswana, Love Letter, No Thanks, Skull & Roses and Werewolf.

* A slip of rule reminders for the above games.

* 35 mini stackable poker chips, five each of seven colours, from Koplow Games.

* Six 12mm dice (six being enough to play Farkle).

* A Zebra Expandz ballpont pen.


It all fits inside the pencil case, the chips being arranged into a single stack and bound with two rubber bands.
