My fiance never played a game above Go Fish! level until she met me. Games were something her girlfriends were playing with their boyfriends and the only component was their heads. And, yes, some are made out of wood.

So, I started introducing her to some games that I thought she would like based upon simple rules and fun theme. In addition, they had to be quick. We've played some others that she likes (Ticket to Ride and Through the Desert) but I wanted good 2 player games. Kosmos seemed like the solution to my criteria. It is THE solution, indeed.

She is a viper and cleans my clock with these games. Evil resides within her now, she paints her nails in between playing crushing cards. She does her hair before selling her wares. I'm getting a bonfire permit for my backyard in the shape of a K !

This one hurts. She loves the thin theme, thinks the cards and colors are cute and loves the little cubes. She wins 9 out of 10 times. She loves that more.

Cleopatra sucks. Why? Because my fiance wins each time and thinks that she is Cleopatra now. Woman power!

She hates this game. I hate it too. But, she won the only time we played.. which will be the last time we play. It's good that we hate it or it would be another Kosmos game I can't win.

She hated the movie Van Helsing but loves using him in this one to nuke me. It too a while to get her to play this one as she gets scared around vampires. Not sure why as she kills them every time she encounters them.

Good game, wondering how I can cheat to win this one. It took so long to get her to play but now I can't win.

Can you say Hello Loss in Swahili? It is "Jambo Loss" I think.

Got her to play this one last night thinking that this KOSMOS game will be mine next to her 5 so far. It is probably one of the more complex games she's played with all the card play and action management/timing. She wiped me out. She had 58 gold on her turn and looked at me and said: "My first three actions are to taunt you. My last two are to save for the 2 gold. I reach 60 and win."

Wow. How cruel. I thought that she may not see that tactic but she did. I was really proud of her.

Don't even get me started on this one. She actually loves saying RA, Knizia's best auction game (IMO) but she's never played it. No, she taunts me with RA when she's beating me at Lost Cities. We've played 5 times and I've never won. Ever. This one is on the top of my bonfire.

Another one I thought was going to be mine! Not so, it's hers. She had never even heard of Odin before this one... don't think she had heard of Scandanavia either but that's another story. Oh, she likes IKEA stores.. but, Odin's Ravens she LOVES. She wins. Her raven soars. Mine plummets.

I'm not buying anymore of these 2-player Kosmos games!

My wife and I used to play Kahuna regularly, and we both enjoyed the heck out of it. We had a pretty even win ratio, which made it much more enjoyable than getting my ass handed back to me every game, as seems to be the case in most Rummy games we play. I think it would have stayed in rotation had I not gloated over my 6-0 shutout win. I DEFINITELY shouldn't have made a victory lap around the dining room table....
