So im currently lookin for some new Boardgames, especially for me and my Girlfriend. A game with more than 2 Players is okay too, but it still should have a decent 2Player Mode.

Games we tried out so far:
Targi (we both like it, because it is easy to transport and still not too easy)
Bruges (thats like my favorite Boardgame, its enjoyable with 2 Players), Rivals of Catan(we both didnt enjoy it somehow)
Android Netrunner (she didnt like the Illustrations / Mechanics)

Issues: - No fantasy / horror
- nothing too complex, but should have some "replay" value
- s.th else than an usual worker placement, preferably with
some interactive Mechanics ( im still waiting for the follow-up pressure of Robinson Crusoe)

Games (atleast I) would be interested in:
http://boardgamegeek.com/boardgame/122298/morels
http://boardgamegeek.com/boardgame/129051/le-havre-the-inlan...
http://boardgamegeek.com/boardgame/126792/myrmes
http://boardgamegeek.com/boardgame/148228/splendor], though 30€ seems to bit too much.

What about 7 Wonders? Does it have a decent 2player Mode?
Maybe you guys have some recommendations.

Thanks for reading

I mostly play 2-players with my gf and we both liked 7 wonders but if I have to choose for a 2p game I won't buy 7W.

"follow-up pressure"

You mean, that you have to wait for it to be in print again, right?

That would be more like "next printing".

Robinson Crusoe: Adventures on the Cursed Island is superb. It is not quite that simple, though.

No, absolutely not. It's a game that really needs more players to work well.

You could go with Among the Stars, though, which has a good two player mode.

Agricola: All Creatures Big and Small is a very nice game for two.
I also like it better than Le Havre Inland Port.

How about...

Pandemic

Bye

Game reviewer, Richard Ham (Rahdo) believes that 7 Wonders is at its best with two players. You may want to see if his tastes align with yours before discounting it as an option.

I'll second the suggestion for Pandemic as a great co-op for a couple. We have also both enjoyed Yedo, which is a worker placement game with good interaction.

Jaipur is a lighter game, but it's a blast!
