I'm not really a fan of deduction games but Coda is one I've found to pretty enjoyable. It takes all of a minute to learn and a game is over in about fifteen minutes. Each player has a code consisting of four tiled numbers between 0 and 11and each number can be black or white. Your code is placed in front of you in numerical sequence, lowest on the left and highest right. A player takes one of the left-over tiles from the middle of the table and, based on what knowledge he has accumulated, tries to guess the value of one of a particular opponent's tiles. If he's right the opponent has to reveal the correctly-guessed tile and the player can place the tile he drew into his sequence unseen, making it more difficult for your opponents to guess your code. Or he can try and guess another tile's value. If the guess is wrong, the tile you drew gets put into your sequence but it is revealed to your opponents, giving them a clue to the value of your other tiles. Once a player's tiles have all been revealed, he is eliminated and the last player standing wins.
Early guesses are pot luck but soon you can deduce what people have based on their revealed tiles and their previous guesses. The game is not difficult and there comes a time when enough information is available for a player to guess the remaining hidden tiles. When the game is nearing the end, you need to judge whether to pass or push your luck a bit further in the expectation that you won't be getting another turn. You could say that this turns the end-game into a bit of a lottery and, I guess, it is but it's still fun all the same. In our game, Nige came out the winner, proving again that he's only good at winning games of luck.
