We bought Usborne Pencil and Paper Games book at The Paper Store near us, and it looks like it’s out of print through Amazon (Affiliate Link below), but it’s been a lot of fun. It’s likely out of print because the pages don’t tear out nicely (which is annoying!), but the games inside are fun!
There are the standard paper games, like the grid of dots, and players take turns connecting horizontal and vertical lines and see who can make the most boxes, and then twists on those games. I think all of the games are two players (though some could be adapted easily), and each game seems made to be played in about 5 minutes.
This book has been fun at the table for us, and fun when my kids are sitting around at the ice rink watching games.
Do you have books like this? We’d love suggestions!
