Top Ten Two-Player Board Games

January 20th, 2017 Leave a comment Go to comments

We consider ourselves a gamer-family, though there are plenty of times where only two of us are available for a game when we’d like to do something together.  This, coupled with the suggestion from a friend that I make some sort of list, led me to this post.

The below is a list of my top-ten recommended two-player board games, though this list comes with a few caveats. For one, there’s no consideration to publication date.  Secondly, I only listed games that I actually own.  Lastly, there are PLENTY of games that work great as a two-player game but support more, however there were so many that I had to restrict my top ten list to two-player only games.  I did include a few exceptions in the honorable mentions section and honestly wanted to list more than I did.

Are there better two-player games out there than the ones I listed?  Probably…but again, there’s a good chance I’ve never played them (you know, because I’m human and all).  The list is done in video format, so go brew some popcorn and microwave some coffee…or something…and enjoy the show!  Links are provided here for your convenience, because I’m awesome that way.
