I love playing board games. For the last year or so I've been looking for board and card games that can be played by two players. Spousemeister and I used to play board games like fiends. Now, around Christmas/New Years and till the snow melts, it's a good time to play.
We haven't tried any but Dominion yet, but it was really cool, and I could see for the first time the appeal of a deck building game--I think it's accurate to call it that.
Mysterium Supposedly "Clue for Adults"
Quiddler I love Word games. My husband, who is the Math Guy around here likes Word games where he can drag out his unabridged dictionary to find fiendish words to defeat the enemy (me, the Word person).
Jaipur Somehow you simulate a bazaar and mercantile trades. Came up like mad for two players.
Kill Doctor Lucky (I think my husband doesn't appreciate this title much, but I love mysteries and it seems to have that element.) "A family board game of cold-blooded murder!" What's not to like?
