Hey guys,

I saw there is many threads for games for 2P+ but not much for 2P.
I live in Brazil with my GF and I am teaching her how great it is to be a geek lol

We are playing Munchkin a lot and she really enjoy it.
I would like to find a new game for our Sunday afternoon, 98% of time we will be playing only the two of us, as I am foreigner and don't know much people here.

So I would like to find a great game for 2P.
I checked several games, Fallen look great for 2 people, but I am a little bit afraid of the fact we need to build decks before the game, so she may be a bit afraid of the difficulty. Do you think it could be a good choice?

I have checked Arcardia Quest too, that is not really a 2P but that have several 2P campaign, but I don't know if it would be a good choice as it is very expensive here, to buy it only for 6 campaign...

I know zombicide/pandemy are great and coop games are a good choice for couples, to avoid fights lol.
But my gf and me are more interested in a med/fantasy game, with level uping, weapons, classes.

Do you have any recommendation for us?

I am open to any suggestion, Coop game or asymetrics 1v1 like Fallen

Thanks a lot!

My wife enjoys the following

The Bloody Inn

Ascension: Deckbuilding Game

and has just picked up

Odin's Ravens (Second Edition)

Don't know if they may be a bit 'light' for you (I'm not really into heavy games myself)

My wife and I really like Zombicide: Black Plague . It has that whole med/fantasy thing and really neat miniatures! Plus getting new weapons and leveling up. A simple game as well. I would definitely recommend it!!

One question about Fallen, did anyone tried to play it like with a noob?
I loved the concept to introduce her in the RPG world. I would like to teach her to play with imagination.
She is pregnant and I would love to play with them later in life

It is not a thematic/rpg type of game, but you should take a look at Carcassonne. In the game you are building the medieval town of Carcassonne ( obviously ). The rules are simple, the replayability is high. It is the game that introduced me to the world of board games and still is is one of my favorites and surely the most preferred for an afternoon with my girlfriend.

I have been looking at mice and mystics, it look pretty fun too
Do you know any game a bit like fallen?
Where I could be the DM and she will be the hero and have to make choice, with capacities, weapons, armores, level.

Where we could let our imagination work too
