Most of my gaming these days are two player games between me & my girlfriend.
I've got about two dozen unplayed games in my collection that I eventually want to try... but my question is:
Is it worthwhile to play the games on this list with just two players... or should I wait until I have more people to join us?

I'd really like to give this one a try - but it almost seems a shame to not have more players available for the roles of the hunters! To have one player controlling all four of them sounds kind of monotonous.

This looks like it might be do-able as a two player, since the setup changes depending on how many are playing. But is it a better game with 3-4 playing?

This also looks like it would play well with just two people. Out of all the games on this list, this is probably the one I'm most likely to try as a 2P.

This one, however, seems as if it needs at least four players to make it really worthwhile.

I've been anxious to play this one - it looks like it would work just fine with just two players. But is it a better game with more?

Like Batman: Gotham City Strategy, I'd probably be willing to play this one with just two players. Any reason why I should wait for more?

One of the most recent additions to my collection. While I would like to play with more than two, it looks a bit more complex than what the rest of the family usually plays. This might be a case where I'm better off playing it with just two players first...
