Okay, my girlfriend seems really interested in my games, but I know just doesn't have the same appreciation. We played a game of Primordial Soup that made her want to scream with rage, she said.

However, she LOVES to play Cathedral. So, I'm thinking she actually loves shorter abstracts. My problem is, I'm really not fond of abstracts. At all.

Can anyone recommend any two player, theme heavy abstracts that I might look into?


Thanks

Cold War: CIA vs KGB She might not be crazy on the theme, but it's one of my favorite 2 player games. It is basically beefed up blackjack.

Um...abstract means it doesn't have a theme, even a light theme. You could try Lost Cities, which is a popular game with couples. But, why don't you just ask her what she likes about Cathedral? Maybe it's not the abstractness.

Ingenious is our favorite abstract game. It also comes in a small two-player-only Travel Edition.

Maybe she likes the puzzle aspect of it.

Try:

Carcasonne
War and Sheep
Alhambra
Quarto!
