Word games, filler games, party games, short games, abstract strategy games that don't require too much concentration.
Overturn (a word game similar to Othello), Fits, Tetris, Word on the Street, Pyramid Solitaire, Upwords, Yaniv, Pipes and Agora by Cheapass Games.
Hiding JoyRox (see www.JoyRox.net for info on these decorated art rocks) for unsuspecting strangers to find. It's a cross between pet rocks, street art, and geocaching. I also like to collect games, host game nights; hunt for good game deals at yard sales and thrift stores; run playful and game-like creative writing workshops; author books that help others express their creativity (you can find my books Write-Brain Workbook and Take Ten for Writers wherever books are sold); try out games from other countries when I find them in local markets; and invent Punny Halloween Costumes.
Inventing board/card games is a hobby for me. Looking forward to playing the creations of others and meeting fellow designers/inventors. I'd love to collaborate on some smartphone apps if I could just meet the right programmer!
I was really excited to meet other designers and test their games. Looking forward to doing more of that.... and bringing my own, too.
