Board games for two players

Four months ago I asked on Twitter for suggestions of board games that work well with two players. Here are the suggestions.

I’ve linked to the games’ pages on BoardGameGeek and included their average rating on the site. I’ve also added the names and comments, if any, of those who suggested them. Thanks to all of you!

We’ve yet to even look through them properly and choose what to start with, but getting a list together seemed like a good, if belated, first step.

  • 12:49pm: @genmon I’d love a chart of some kind showing each era’s callbacks to things of decades ago, made in attempts at “authenticity”.
  • 10:40am: As someone else pointed out (I wouldn’t have noticed) also it’s amazing they *still* use “white authors” but “black writers”, as yesterday.…
  • 8:21am: @FakeDaveGreen How have you found them? We got a bit bored and stopped after the first 4 or so. I’m not quite sure what was missing.
