Any game that is
1. Not timed
2. 1-finger and no accelerometer
3. No enemies to hit


I say any puzzle game or popcap game

How 'bout Tik Tok?

Everyone hear already knows I play games on my iPod, so I usually have Str8ts running - I don't try to hide it.

Fighting Fantasy is good as a surreptitious game to play, but there's lots of reading so it's not everyone's cup of tea.

By that same token, Moxie is a good game to play in a meeting.
