I am searching for a game to play with just one other player. Is there a way to find games for which 2P has been voted the best?

Thanks!

Yes! Use Adv. Search, to the right of the normal search bar, and pick 2 to 2 players. I think you'll have to sort by rating or rank after the search.

I haven't been able to find a way of searching the best/recommended with # of players that are on each game page (would be very useful). This geeklist listed those best with 2 from the polls on the page at the time they did the geeklist, but it is a bit out dated:

Best With Two

I have been able to do this but, to my way of thinking, that only tells me what games can be played by two people. I am looking for games that are best with two players. This is different right?

I will check out that geeklist. I wish this option was an Adv. Search option but alas!

Thanks!

Excuse me: I missed "best".

It is different. Whether the small numbers of people who volunteer opinions are representative of general experience or not....

You best resource may be asking in the Recommendations Forum. Among other things, they'll tend to omit games which are unavailable.

Huh? Several respondents have given links to lists of games best with 2 players.

The OP was looking for a way to use the data that BGG has acquired from votes, not smaller lists.

Yes, I understand that. The Best with Two list is just that - based on gamers' votes. Just read the introductory paragraphs of that list.

Those paragraphs explain that it's missing a lot.

The Best with Two list is really good, though, by not being integrated into the Adv. Search a lot of functionality is lost. For instance, I am actually looking for a coop game that can be played with a younger age (my son). I don't think there is a way to take the results from a list and sort by these other parameters. If there is, then this list would be an excellent resource (omissions aside).

I really like the design of this tool. And you can simultaneously sort by number of players, minimum age, and game weight.

Note: for some reason the "artist" part of your screen name is black, not blue. When I ran this tool for your collection I had to type "artist" in by hand. But the tool worked and I saw your collection sorted by "good with 2" and "game weight 2"
