My wife would like to buy me a new game as a b/day present, she wants a few ideas, was trying out power grid recently but found the 2 player game lacking, was after some recommendations, it's mainly for 2 players, (wife and me) now and again 4 players, ones on my mind are kemet, castles of burgundy, or expansion for lords of waterdeep.any recommendations will be grateful. Our favourites so far are, lords of waterdeep, seasons and dominion, thanks.

My wife and I go out to eat weekly with a boardgame and so do a lot of 2-player games. We also game it up with other couples and have collected a number of games to this end.

Recommendations?
+1 Castles of Burgundy. My wife loves this one and it plays SO well as a 2 player game and scales well.

Key flower. I think this game especially shines as a 2 player game.

Targi. Just watch Tom vasel's YouTube review if you're not sold on that yet. It also travels very well as the box is small. This one, however, is 2-only.

Trains. If you all like Dominion, this is dominion with a purpose. One of my wife's favorites. Thunderstone also fits this well (if you're into fantasy themes)

Troyes. A great dice place,ent game that works well with 2 or more.

Castles of Burgundy is great with 2p. I'd either recommend that or Race for the Galaxy if you don't think you or your wife would mind the iconography.

Yedo is a great worker placement game that pretty darn good with 2 (and even better with 4)

+1 The Castles of Burgundy As mentioned, scales very well.
+1 Race for the Galaxy get over the iconography hump (not nearly as bad as it is made out to be) and you're golden.

It sounds like you guys really enjoy cardplay. +1 to Innovation, will give you an awesome replayable experience. +1 as well to Race for the Galaxy (although give it a few tries to sink in).

Great that you both enjoy gaming, don't take it for granted
