What are some fun games for two players that can be played with only pencil and paper, and maybe some other common items such as dice, coins, or whatever.

I remember hearing about a pencil/paper game on here that sounded fun but I can't for the life of me remember what it was called or even how it played. All I remember is that it sounded fun. I'm hoping someone mentions it.

No, I'm pretty sure the game I heard of had to do with drawing lines, and nothing to do with words.

Even if it's not the game you're thinking of, I recommend Dots and Boxes, for which the definitive reference is The Dots and Boxes Game.

Racetrack is definitely my favorite pen and pencil game. You do need graph paper, but you can just print that out.

I play games not to win, it's the gathering that's important - Thanks for the tip Cate108!

I highly recommend this one, Ghoulash. It's for 2p and a pencil&paper RPG game. But you will need to print out the dungeon map to play first.

Sprouts is the game I was looking for. Racetrack looks liked it'd be good also. Thanks for the replies.

Telestrations ... aka "Eat Poop You Cat" ...

I've always wanted to play it, but never get the chance to do so.
