I'm googling games for two players, and I keep seeing recommendations for long, serious games.

I'm just looking for games designed to make you laugh, like Cards Against Humanity or Apples to Apples or a number of board games I've found (don't care about format), but they all seem to be designed for 4+ people.

Any recommendations? I see Killer Bunnies might be decent, but I'd like to find more. Thanks!

Schotten Totten is a game with whimsical art. It's the original implementation of Battle Line and is a great game.



Crocodile Pool Party is another 2 player game you can look into.

The problem is your question assumes a sense of humour...anyways

Try

The Awful Green Things From Outer Space This is probably exactly what you're looking for.

Famiglia

Monsters Menace America

Santiago de Cuba should work for 2

Havana not really humour but it can work

Welcome to BGG !

Zombie Dice

E Or: Martian Dice or Cthulhu Dice, though each of them is different and Zombie Dice is the easiest and best in my opinion.

Escape: The Curse of the Temple

Galaxy Trucker

Rampage

King of Tokyo (though I have not played that one yet)

The most silly one I listed is Rampage, while failure in Galaxy Trucker can also be hillarious to the point that you don't mind losing.

If you like real-time panic, take a look at Escape: The Curse of the Temple.

Have fun and good laughs !

If you have a dark sense of humor, try Gloom.

Awful Green Things is a good suggestion which reminded me of Snits/Snit's Revenge and Globbo!

Monsters Menace America, I think, is designed for multi-player, but The Creature That Ate Sheboygan is 2 player.

I agree re Monsters but i have played it with 2 players, holding one or two monsters and it works.

You should check out Snake Oil

By the makers of Apples to Apples, but more creative and humorous. Definitely works better with more players.

Thanks all for the suggestions!

Actually, dark humor is perfect. I'd have mentioned it in my original post had the actual term crossed my mind. Games that are just like stupid silly work, but this is even better.

I already purchased it after watching some YouTube videos. Any other recommendations along these lines?
