There must have been a moment at the beginning, where we could have said no. Somehow we missed it. Well, we'll know better next time.
I'm a big fan of railroad themes and I was wondering if there are any good games out there that can be played well with two players? I know most railroad games will be best with at least three but my wife and I play most games with just us two.
I am looking for:
-Something heavier than Ticket to Ride (we have this already).
-Some tension even with two players.
You could take a look at
Empire Builder Rail Games
The most basic one is Empire Builder
But they have many different countries and even sci-fi and fantasy settings.
