Hi guys,
for me and my wife carcassonne is the best game ever because it's about strategy and also is a game mainly for 2 players and also is a short one, can you help me to find out a game similar to this?

If you like the tile laying, but are open to a game where you each build your own area, check out Suburbia

One hour or less, good replay value, and play well with 2p:

Arkadia
Istanbul
Ginkgopolis
Dos Rios
Ingenious
Finca

Our favorite game is also Carcassonne. Games that have a similar feeling are Splendor and Ticket to Ride: Europe.

Patchwork is very good if you want a short 2 player game

Glen More is a great tile-laying game that also works very well with two players.

You could also take a look at Limes.

These games are nothing like Carcassonne but they are all short, good 2 player, all have strategy and most have a bit of luck:

Race for the Galaxy - replaced Carcassonne as our default game. We play it far more than we played Carcassonne. It is more complex so don't expect to know what you're doing in the first game.

Haggis - 2-3p card game, inspired by Tichu. Can be played with playing cards 2p (though a Haggis deck makes scoring slightly easier)

Cribbage - 2p classic card game.

Hey, That's My Fish! - 2-4p abstract strategy game, only randomness is in the setup.

Hive Pocket - 2p abstract strategy game, no randomness, fairly quick.

Star Realms - 2p quick deck builder.

My girlfriend and I also love Carcassonne and Ticket to Ride. I would suggest looking into TTR: Nordic Countries as it's designed specifically for 2-3 players.

Small World could work as well, since it includes a map just for two people, for some strategic head-to-head play. Might be a little more advanced than what you're looking for right now, but could be a good choice down the road.
