Now that Trajan is out in the US, I'm putting together a game order, and want to find a card game along the same lines as Ascension or Dominion, but which has a fun theme like Bohnanza that I can add to the order.

It needs to play well as a 2 player game, since my wife is my primary gaming partner (hence the desire for a non fantasy/sci-fi theme), but I would like it to scale out to at least 4 but preferably 6.

I was looking at Food Fight, and will buy the iOS app tomorrow when the price drops to 0.99 to try it out first, but i'm looking for other possible suggestions.

Thanks in advance

The new Smash Up sounds like it fits your description, however its release date is September... not sure how pre-orders work into filling out online orders and shipping.

Another card game with more of a comic book, super-hero theme with cooperative play that has caught my attention recently is Sentinels of the Multiverse.

You need to pick up Innovation! Plays well with 2 or 3 and 4 with teams.

Good luck!

Glory to Rome
Innovation

I also happen to love Lord of the Rings LCG and A Game of Thrones LCG. I don't know if these qualify as "fun themes" for you, but they're all great games.

+1 for Innovation as a card game to have in your collection.

Its our most played game each of the past two months since picking it up at Origins. I didn't mention it above as it's not the first game that comes to mind for a "fun theme like Bohnanza", taking nothing away from a great game.

Fzzzt! fits your criteria. It plays well with two, it has a fun theme, and it has deck-building.

Parade
Lords of Scotland
Fairy Tale (has a fantasy theme, but not so much as in your typical heroic fantasy games...)

Check out ...

Morels ... collecting, cooking and selling mushrooms ... quite attractive, quick and enjoyable.

Pax slaves rebelling against Rome and building their own province .. surprisingly good game.

Dominant Species The Card Game nowhere near as complex as the boardgame.

Good luck with your quest.

Morels is a good one but only supports 2 players.

Rapa Nui is a lot of fun, plays well at all player counts (2-4). You can try it out on yucata.de. Nice artwork.
