My first list! (yes, another two player list, sorry...) Since most of my gaming is with my spouse, I've rarely played with more then just two. Although we've enjoyed almost everything we've played, some games need special tweaks for two and really only shine with higher numbers. So, although we really enjoy all these as two player games, this list is my "mental" list of games I need to bring to the table when we have willing guests!

This is excellent with only two but the "auctioning/bargaining" aspect should shine with more. We were pleasantly surprised how much fun it was with only two.

We play several 2 player variants and enjoy them all. But this really needs more players. We've gravitated towards San Juan which, although quite different in mechanism, "feels" similar.

The game that reintroduced us to gaming! We find Cities and Knights to be excellent as a 2 player game (with a couple of small tweaks to lessen a run-away win) but vanilla Settlers, not so much. This really needs more players to shine.

An excellent game! The dummy player feature works very well in a 2 player setting but this should be much more nasty with >2!

Like Louis XIV, this has an excellent dummy player variation for two which we very much enjoy. The dummy hasn't won yet but he/she's beaten me badly once when he/she came in a close second! Should be better with a live dummy though!

SdJ winner for 2005! It is fun as two but really is a multiplayer game. Looking forward to playing it as intended.

We have really been enjoying this game. Superbly simple to learn and play. We like to be agressive with two or it can be a bit too short. And we are so absent-minded, Mutiny! gets called VERY often! This will be excellent with more players.
