I'm sure this has been done before, but what hasn't...

Add your favorite game to play heads-up and why?
Or Add your favorite 2-player game to play with a buddy versus your favorite to play with your SO.
Or add whatever else you feel like.

The list is sorted by BGG Rank.

Tigris hasn't been added yet? Well it's definitely my favorite game to play with two people. Followed somewhat closely by Torres and Carcassonne with expansions. All of them are such great duels, but Tigris has got to be the best.

Well for my wife and I its Goa.
We both love the game for 2, 3 or 4 players. Its slightly solitare-ish but the auction manages to bing it back to a conversation game. The only game i currently rate as a 9. I have no 10's.
A game i would recommend always.

Our Favorite - 2 player longish game. (about 2-2.5 hrs for 2 players) plenty of options with some very good strategic and tactical choices. If you are looking for a game with some good 2 player depth this is it.

Scales down to 2 perfectly. Far better than the blue box one imo, and much better scoring. A 2 player favorite around here!

This is my favorite 1 on 1 game to play with my buddies. I prefer the theme of this over Memoir '44 but I think I'd enjoy Memoir '44 more because of the additional rules (with the expansions). I love the rules of Battle Cry, I just wish there was more to it.

This is my current favorite strictly 2-player non-wargame. I also like Starship Catan, LotR Confrontation, Hive, Blue Moon a lot.

San Juan is my favorite non-wargame in general to play with 2 (though it is not specifically a 2-player game). Return of the Heroes is a close second in this category, possibly soon to usurp San Juan.

As far as wargames go, my favroite would have to be between Hammer of the Scots, Eastfront, Bonaparte at Marengo or Rommel in the Desert.

(ok I'm cheating by putting 2 games down)

Our Favorite 2 player short/card game. Some good fun in about 30 mins - 1 hour. A solid card game with a theme that has been skillfully integrated into game play. Well worth the $10 I paid for it.
