Hi,
i am looking to buy one of those:
1) Caylus
2) Agricola
3) Le Havre
4) Through the Ages: A Story of Civilization

I am still unsure what i want among them.
Whats the best among them for 2 persons?
Another criterion which isn't so important: Be a bit different to Puerto Rico, becasue thats the other game we play a lot.

I have only played Agricola and Le Havre.

I think Le Havre is the better game.

These are all fine games for two players. Of these, I think Caylus and Through the Ages are actually best with two: Caylus because of the reduced chaos, and TtA because of the reduced downtime.

My favorite of these is TtA, but you should be aware that it is a longer game than Puerto Rico (about 1.5 hours per player) and its rules and gameplay are much more complex.

None of them are much like Puerto Rico. Agricola might come closest, but it's still very different.

Haven't played TtA.

Of the other three, Le Havre takes the longest, Caylus is the driest, and Agricola has the most luck/randomness (if you play with the cards). I enjoy them all, but any of those three descriptors can be dealbreakers for some people.
