I would suggest Ora et Labora and Castles of Burgundy. I do not have the games but I do have them on order and should be getting them soon.

I have Quarriors and it is a pretty good game, it would really depend if you like dice rolling and luck being a large part of your game.

London, I do not have nor have I played, but it is also a game that I am interested in.

Looking through your collection and comments, I would recommend staying away from Quarriors since you comment how good it is that M&M doesn't require conflict. Quarriors is nothing but direct attacks, and in 2p, it's much more light (almost shallow) than what seems to be your standard preference.

I'd definitely recommend Burgundy. As for Ora vs. London, that's a tough one. I personally think London plays slightly better with 2p than Ora, provided you play it with the 2p variant listed on the Geek. Ora is great too, but I guess it depends on how you feel about a 2-3 hour game...

You should definitely get Ora et Labora, no question about that one.

I'd say London over Burgundy as it has more replay value. Burgundy just doesn't seem very interesting after 4 or so plays.


Quarriors is just light dice throwing fluff....

Ora et Labora is in my opinion your first choice. Personally I would go with London over Castle of Burgundy, but either would be good picks. As for Quarriors I would remove it from your list and never speak of it again!

Ditto.

Although I haven't played the there's. Although, I sat down and learned Quarriors. But after the explanation, I decided to give it a pass.
