Mano y Mano in an hour or less. Thats the premise and thats the goal of this GeekList. I routinely have a game night with just me and one other participant and in those game night we play a ridiculous amount of game in a very short time. So I thought I would make a GL to share the games we normaly play and hopefully have people add games that fit the critera so that my game nights dont get old and with that out of the way were off...

This one plays in about 30-45 minutes, and, in a word, it's awesome.

I got to play for the first time recently when one of my two regular gaming buddies was going to be late. So, the other guy and I set aside the big game we were planning to play and tried Neuroshima Hex and it was a revelation. When our buddy finally arrived, we were halfway through our second game and told him he'd have to wait a bit longer.

I've never played a game like this that builds up and then releases all of its energy and then recycles and repeats. It makes it somewhat unique in my collection, and I look forward to getting it on the table again.

This endures as my favorite two player game. It typically plays in 30-45 and definitely is capped there thanks to a set turn limit if "Jack" doesn't escape before then — although I suppose AP could slow it down some.

I really enjoy the bluffing, the deduction and the careful consideration of how to employ each character power.

More than that, I love that I've played this game with gamers, non-gamers, men, women, children, and they all enjoy it.

Played this one one week when my three-man game day turned to a two-man game day at the last minute. We had planned Arkham Horror, but this was a nice, lean, mean two-player compromise that we were able to play three times in less time than one game of that sprawling beastie.

It's a nice way to get a shot of that Lovecraftian flavor in that period of time, while also an interesting card game in its own right. It had been many years since my college Magic: The Gathering addiction, but I felt some of the old CCG skills coming back as we tried several combinations from the LCG starter box.

I love the LCG format (as opposed to CCG). I'm a big Lovecraft fan. This is just a really good fit.

This game is quick, but much deeper and more intense than Carcassonne or some other tile laying games. There are a few mechanisms (three tile hand, choice of face up or face down tiles, option of picking a tower instead of a normal tile, character tokens) that make this far less random than a lot of other tile games. I was quite suprised at how much I ended up enjoying this game.

Very tense and fun game, plays in 15-25 minutes.
Asymmetric, so you can alternate sides and get your two games in under an hour.

And then lie down somewhere until the adrenaline dissipates...

I put Gipf on the list as a placeholder for any one of the excellent Project Gipf games:
GIPF, TAMSK, ZÈRTZ, DVONN, YINSH, PÜNCT, TZAAR

Pure abstracts. GIPF, YINSH and PÜNCT tend to be longer, but still playable under 60 min.

This is my favorite chess variant right now. Gives a lot more open game play than traditional Chess or the japanese Shogi.

Post from the iPod, it will be short. Solid, well-balanced asymmetry. It is an abstract but, paradoxally, has an unusual, believable, well-integrated theme. Both sides feel very different and while not a terribly deep game, it allows for a variety of approaches.

Not just 1 game. I think 10+ 2 players games can be achieved in under 1 hour especially if u dont do the qualifying rounds and randomly assign startin position (usually I let her start ). I really like 2 pls game of Pitchcar since there's no waiting for ur turn!
