Catfood is a person mind you, lets keep that in mind. He needs a game that is playable by 2 sometimes 3 (read: playable and FUN for 2! Not just playable for 2)

Theme is important to Catfood so the game can't feel too horribly dry. Must be relatively attractive. If he can't enjoy looking at the board he will often stare at other things, the cats, the mountain dew bottles piling up on the table, the commercial featuring Postal Service, etc. It also MUST be a BOARD GAME! Catfood has many games already some of them include: Citadels, Theophrastus, Illuminati, Tower Siege, M:TG) These are all card games and he is looking for a board game.

This list contains my suggestions for him which others are free to comment on, and also will be open for your game recomendations. Lets help catfood find a game!

This looks good, pretty board, nice pieces. 2-5 players, but is it fun with 2?

Another pretty game, nice wooden pieces, modular board, comments say it feels kind of "Indiana Jonesish" playable with 2?

Catfood likes settlers, It seems this has some of that in it. We played a 2-player variant on settlers and found it "not terrible" will this be fun?

Neither of us have ever played this though we have looked at it and thought about it dozens of times. Everyone tell me how great it is!

This game looks fun, simple, strategic, pretty, is it all these things? Will it stand up to repeated playings?

I have been recommending this one a lot lately. Pure fun - simple mechanics - won't make your brain burn.

Works very well with three. Will work with two, but interaction of 3rd player makes this game a lot better
