Hello to all;

My wife and I are new to the hobby and have a very small collection (For now ). Currently our favourite is castles of burgundy. Because of this, we are going to purchase Grand Austria Hotel.
And also we want to purchase a worker placement game. We have narrowed down to Village and T'zolkin. So now i need your help Which one is more suitable for a 2 player game? Also do you have any other recommendations and why?

Thanks in advance for your help

I wouldn't call Village a worker placement game. Also, I think both games mentioned are good, but not great. Tzolk'in is a little more complex.

For a worker placememt game that is a bit simpler than Castles of Burgundy, I recommend Stone Age or Lords of Waterdeep.
If you are looking for something a little more complex, take a look at Caylus or Agricola.

All of those games work very well with 2 players.

Weird I totally think of Village as a worker placement game. Anyhow I came to suggest Targi but now I think it might be too simple for the OP.

I thought of Targi but it is language dependent. It is quite difficult to find games in Turkey and due to this my criteria is for language independent or multilanguage games because mostly i order my games from amazon.de. Thanks for the recommendation for though

If you want to try one of Uwe Rosenberg's big farming-themed WP games, try Fields of Arle as it is gorgeous and the specific 2p game in the "series".

T'zolkin - I think it plays just as good at all player counts. How can you not like the gears on the board? It offers such a neat combination of choices to make due to the timing challenges.

I also own village but have yet to play it. It hasn't really drawn me in the way some games do. I got a great deal on it so I bought it and I will get yo it at some point.

I would say worker placement is probably one of me and my wifes favorite type of mechanic. We both love The Castles of Burgundy and Grand Austria Hotel. As far as additional two player worker placement games, I would suggest:

Agricola: All Creatures Big and Small
Dungeon Petz
La Granja
New Bedford
Stone Age

New Bedford also has bot players. So you can also play a 3, 4 or 5p game with two people.

I favor Euros, but I like pretty much all games.

Sure, it's (So) great, but it's very language dependent, 20 pages of rules. After learning the rules, the icons do a good job of reminding, but that's only after the well written rules. Also much more complexity and paths than CoB.
