I have tried to find Richelieu, but to no avail. Is it out of print?

If it's the theme that attracts you, rather than the style of play, have a look at The Three Musketeers: The Queen's Pendants.

I believe so. You may still be able to find a copy in some stores... I did (granted a few years ago). If not, you can also use the designer's own print-and-play version.

Edit: There are also copies in the BGG Marketplace and some geeks are willing to trade.

Thanks for the link. At first sight, it looks kind of a HeroQuest-meets-Dumas.

Actually, I am not interested in Richelieu because of the theme (it looks like it is only loosely themed, anyway), but mainly because:

d10-1 It is designed specifically for two players. I guess this means it is a better game for 2 players (e.g. my fiancée and I) than most games that have their sweet spot at 4 (or more).
d10-2 It has got the highest rating of all the Ravensburger Fun For 2 Series.
d10-3 It got a Spiel des Jahres recommendation. Additional hint of being a good game.

In addition, you can purchase a DIY copy of the game via ArtsCow, at the following link:

Note that some people also redesigned the game using their own graphics and themes, so take a look around to see what you like best.
