I lifted this from a Magic: The Gather draft I used to do with a friend, I tried it with sushi go and it works great.

Basically you lay out a 3x3 grid of cards and one player takes a whole row or column. Then the other player takes a row or column from the remaining cards. Then you discard the cards left, and repeat this process another 3 times. This concludes a single round. Keep your deserts, shuffle the cards and play again for 2 more rounds like regular sushi go.

I go over it in more detail on my blog: http://agreeordie.com/sushi-go-1v1-variant-grid-drafting/

You could possibly also play it from a pyramid grid (i.e. like in 7 Wonders Duel)

Yes, I have tried that as well, but my wife found that more fiddly than the grid so we never tried again.

For what it's worth I think that worked great, and the idea of risk/reward "uncovering" cards for your opponent is super interesting. I have never played 7 wonder duel so I had to keep looking up the configuration of the pyramids, but once committed to memory, great variant as well.

Looks like a game by Bruno Cathala.

Also similar to Cat Lady, except Cat Lady refills the row/column after each draft.

Hmmm sure that would be an interesting way to do it also... Always refill the gaps... That way after 4 rounds both players end up with 12 cards, not bad.
