Concordia is great at 2, some maps play better at two; Crete is a good one.
Clans of Caledonia plays great at at 2, 3, or 4. Heard it is good at one, never tried.
Hanamikoji
Hive
Onitama
Polis: Fight for the Hegemony, for when you are ready to get serious.

Targi - Great worker placement 2 player only game
YINSH - Another Project Gipf game
+1 for Hive
Jaipur - Fun lighter two player
Twilight Struggle - Awesome much deeper two player (do not let the images scare you away from this game, it may look like a wargame, but it is not)
Battle Line - another common recommendation because it's good

Hera and Zeus, recently rereleased as Thunder & Lightning.

So amazing, and so underrated. A perfect ten.

Some of our favorites:

Battle Line
Hive
Memoir '44
Concordia
Mottainai
Puerto Rico
Istanbul
The Fox in the Forest
Patchwork

Just to name a few. Most of our game plays are at two player and there are so many excellent 2 player games out there. Don't let anyone tell you differently.

What is your experience with gaming?
Some games are much heavier or more complex, do you have a preference in weight or complexity?

What have you liked and disliked?
