Games that Are Worth Purchasing Solely for Playing Two-Player, but Are Capable of Supporting More Players
- B. Udral(budral8)
This list is of games that are playable by 2 or more, but are worth purchasing solely to play as a two player game. If it does not "officially" support 2, but has a two player variant that makes it a worthwhile purchase, that is just fine. I don't want any games that only support two on the list, as those are obviously worth purchasing just for two players.
To be clear, for purposes of this list, it does not matter how the game plays with more than two players. It does not matter how many players it is "best" with. What matters is whether the game is worth purchasing only to be played with two players.
Other geeklists that are similar are here, but none are as comprehensive as this aims to be:
A particularly good list is here, with much more in depth commentary:
A geeklist with 2-player variants is here, which includes some of the variants discussed below:
Feel free to comment or add more games. I've added games that I think are worth purchasing just for two, and games that I haven't played, but appear from forum comments and other geeklists to be worthwhile.
May 2009: Edits made. I rearranged to put some of my favorite two player games on top. (dragging is annoying for large geeklists!)
