A friends birthday is coming up and I want to get them a game. They mostly game with their spouse so I am looking for games that play well with two but could accommodate larger numbers.
Currently suggestions are
Shadows over Camelot: The Card Game - this plays 1-7 players.... but currently has no recommendations for two players is it any good with two?
Kingdoms - plays 2-4 don't know anything else about it.
Ticket to Ride: The Card Game - plays well with two ... but I own this already. I love it but would it be better to get something different?
any other recommendations and help appreciated
is there a specific type of game your friend likes?
San Juan -great for 2, up to 4
Kingdom Builder -not bad with 2, better with 3.
Tsuro can be played 2-8 people.
can also try dice games, that can be played with 2+ people:
Ra The Dice Game I just got this for my girlfriend's birthday, it's great, and can play 2-4 people.
edit: added games

If they like TTR try TTR: Nordic Countries, for 2 and 3.
Alien Frontiers, Innovation, Navegador, and Seasons all play well with 2 and support more.
We really enjoy all these games with 2 (and up to 5!)
Homesteaders - 5P requires a variant
Pandemic and Flash Point are quite often the two player games in our house. Though I would definitely second San Juan.
