Started Gaming about ten years ago and kind of got away from it the last few years. Well, that's about to change as I have been gaming heavily for the last few weeks and looking to add something to my collection (as you can see on my profile). I mostly game with my wife (2p).

Top 5:

1. Troyes (far and above, great replay-ability)
2. Macao
3. Dominion
4. The Castles of Burgundy
5. Glass Road

Games I sold:
1. Pandemic (not big on co-op)
2. Through the Ages (gameplay length)
3. Istanbul (grew stale)
4. Machi Koro (too much luck)
5. Lords of Waterdeep (boring?)

Santa Maria. Full stop. Or if you want a bit of breezy deck building, Clank! My wife loves both of these.

The other hot sauce I recommend (but doesn't match your top 5): Azul.

Ulm. Seriously. Gets no love, but sounds right up your alley.

Considering your top five, I recommend that you take a good look at The Voyages of Marco Polo or Grand Austria Hotel. Both are really strong, work well with two, and are equally enjoyed by my wife and me.

Ulm is a great suggestion.

The following should also be on your radar:

Concordia;
Calimala oops, it's a three-player game;
Lorenzo il Magnifico;
The North Sea games, especially Raiders of the North Sea; and
Rajas of the Ganges.
