I'm interested in a cat and mouse game that will work well with two players. I'm particularly interested in one of the three FFG/Nexus titles, but am open to any suggestions. (Fury of Dracula, Garibaldi, Letters)

The only game of this type that I've played is Scotland Yard which was fun, but I'm not interested in acquiring.

Id like to know what you feel is the best game of this type, or if you've played one of these titles with two and thought it didn't work well, that would be helpful to me as well.

Clue: The Great Museum Caper is pretty darn good.

When asking "What would Jesus do?", remember that flipping over tables and using a whip are within the realm of possibilities.

The first one I thought of as well.

The second one is Mister X.

Letters from Whitechapel. Play it now!

It's great and crazy tense. Make sure the subject matter isn't too grisly for the player 2 though.

All good games, but none in the class of 2 de Mayo.

Letters is awesome, but it's pretty hard to find for a decent price right now.

Fury is much more Ameritrash, which may be a positive or a negative for you. For my group, I couldn't ever get it to the table.

From what I understand, Garibaldi is relatively close to Letters, but I haven't actually played the game.

For a simpler version, you could look at Mr. Jack.

Also, Clue: The Great Museum Caper is also a solid choice on the lighter end...
