I am preparing to buy a game, and I just wanted some input on what a good game would be. I have a small euro-game collection (Princes of Florence, Carcassonne H+G, SoC Card game), so something in that category (or an abstract) would be nice.

I know it must be 2 player compatible, as it is very hard for me to get more than 1 opponent at the same time. An extension of that is that the person I get is rarely a "gamer," so I also need something simple.

Finally, I like recycling bits, so something with a decent amount (5-10+) of nice, reusable bits (such as Go-style or wooden block/meeple pieces) would be nice.

Thank you to anyone who helps, this is a great resource!

I think Ingenious would fit in your collection well and meets your criteria.

Balloon Cup is a 2-player game with nice components and easy to learn and play.

Phoenix is another simple but fun game for just 2.

I like Fjords, too, as a simple game to introduce to non-gamers which might lead them to more complex games.

Good luck and happy gaming.
