Board Game For Two Players – Top Board Games

According to Wikipedia :-

Board games are traditionally a subset of tabletop games that involve counters,…

or pieces moved or placed on a pre-marked surface or “board”, according to a set of rules.

In common parlance, however, a board game need not necessarily contain a physical board.

Some games are based on pure strategy,…

…but many contain an element of chance; and some are purely chance, with no element of skill.”

* 7 Wonders Duel – Best Strategy Games

games for two players

This is one of the best strategy games.

7 Wonders Duel, a two-player game in the universe of 7 Wonders, the most awarded game in the world!

Challenge your opponent and bring your civilization to victory with prestigious buildings,…

…military strength, or scientific supremacy.

All in only 30 minutes!

In many ways 7 Wonders Duel resembles its parent game 7 Wonders as over three ages players acquire cards that provide resources,…

…or advance their military or scientific development in order to develop a civilization and complete wonders.

What’s different about 7 Wonders Duel is that, as the title suggests, the game is solely for two players,…

…with the players not drafting cards simultaneously from hands of cards,…

…but from a display of face-down and face-up cards arranged at the start of a round.

A player can take a card only if it’s not covered by any others.

So timing comes into play as well as bonus moves that allow you to take a second card immediately.

As in the original game, each card that you acquire can be built, discarded for coins, or used to construct a wonder.

Each player starts with four wonder cards, and the construction of a wonder provides its owner with a special ability.

Only seven wonders can be built, though, so one player will end up short.

7 Wonders Board Game

Players can purchase resources at any time from the bank,…

…or they can gain cards during the game that provide them with resources for future building;…

…as you acquire resources, the cost for those particular resources increases for your opponent, representing your dominance in this area.

A player can win 7 Wonders Duel in one of three ways: each time you acquire a military card,…

…you advance the military marker toward your opponent’s capital, giving you a bonus at certain positions;…

…if you reach the opponent’s capital, you win the game immediately;…

…similarly, if you acquire any six of seven different scientific symbols,…

…you achieve scientific dominance and win immediately; if none of these situations occurs,…

…then the player with the most points at the end of the game wins.

* The Castles Of Burgundy – Tile Games For Two Players

games for two players

The Hundred Years’ war is over and the Renaissance is looming….

The game is set in the Burgundy region of High Medieval France.

Each player takes on the role of an aristocrat, originally controlling a small princedom.

While playing they aim to build settlements and powerful castles, practice trade along the river, exploit silver mines,,..

and use the knowledge of travelers.

The game is about players taking settlement tiles from the game board,…

…and placing them into their princedom which is represented by the player board.

Every tile has a function that starts when the tile is placed in the princedom.

The princedom itself consists of several regions, each of which demands its own type of settlement tile.

The game is played in five phases, each consisting of five rounds.

Each phase begins with the game board stocked with settlement tiles and goods tiles.

Castles Of Burgundy Board Game

At the beginning of each round all players roll their two dice,…

…and the player who is currently first in turn order rolls a goods placement die.

A goods tile is made available on the game board according to the roll of the goods die.

During each round players take their turns in the current turn order.

During his turn, a player may perform any two of the four possible types of actions:

1) take a settlement tile from the numbered depot on the game board corresponding to one of his dice,…

…and place it in the staging area on his player board,

2) take a settlement tile from the staging area of his player board to a space on his player board,…

with a number matching one of his dice in the corresponding region for the type of tile,…

…and adjacent to a previously placed settlement tile,

3) deliver goods with a number matching one of his dice, or

4) take worker tokens which allow the player to adjust the roll of his dice.

In addition to these actions a player may buy a settlement tile from the central depot on the game board,...

…and place it in the staging area on his player board.

Castles Of Burgundy Strategy

If an action triggers the award of victory points, those points are immediately recorded.

Each settlement tile offers a benefit, additional actions, additional money,…

…advancement on the turn order track, more goods tiles, die roll adjustment,…

…or victory points.

Bonus victory points are awarded for filling a region with settlement tiles.

The game ends when the last player finishes his turn of the fifth round of the fifth phase.

Victory points are awarded for unused money and workers, and undelivered goods.

Bonus victory points from certain settlement tiles are awarded at the end of the game.

The player with the most victory points wins.

The rules include basic and advanced versions.

* Puzzle Games For Two Players – Patchwork

In Patchwork, two players compete to build the most aesthetic (and high-scoring) patchwork quilt on a personal 9×9 game board.

To start play, lay out all of the patches at random in a circle and place a marker directly clockwise of the 2-1 patch.

Each player takes five buttons — the currency/points in the game — and someone is chosen as the start player.

On a turn, a player either purchases one of the three patches standing clockwise of the spool or passes.

To purchase a patch, you pay the cost in buttons shown on the patch, move the spool to that patch’s location in the circle,…

…add the patch to your game board, then advance your time token on the time track a number of spaces equal to the time shown on the patch.

You’re free to place the patch anywhere on your board that doesn’t overlap other patches,…

…but you probably want to fit things together as tightly as possible.

Patchwork Quilt

If your time token is behind or on top of the other player’s time token,

…then you take another turn; otherwise the opponent now goes.

Instead of purchasing a patch, you can choose to pass; to do this,…

…you move your time token to the space immediately in front of the opponent’s time token,…

…then take one button from the bank for each space you moved.

In addition to a button cost and time cost, each patch also features 0-3 buttons,…

…and when you move your time token past a button on the time track,…

…you earn “button income”: sum the number of buttons depicted on your personal game board,

…then take this many buttons from the bank.

Patchwork Game

What’s more, the time track depicts five 1×1 patches on it, and during set-up you place five actual 1×1 patches on these spaces.

Whoever first passes a patch on the time track claims this patch and immediately places it on his game board.

Additionally, the first player to completely fill in a 7×7 square on his game board,…

…earns a bonus tile worth 7 extra points at the end of the game. (Of course, this doesn’t happen in every game.)

When a player takes an action that moves his time token to the central square of the time track,…

…he takes one final button income from the bank.

Once both players are in the center, the game ends and scoring takes place.

Each player scores one point per button in his possession, then loses two points for each empty square on his game board.

Scores can be negative.

The player with the most points wins.

* Mr Jack – Mystery Games Online For Two Players

In Mr. Jack, one of the two players represents Jack the Ripper, who will be one of the eight characters on the board.

This player knows which character is Mr. Jack, and his goal is to flee from the district,…

….as soon as possible (or avoid being accused for eight turns).

The other player represents an independent investigator (not represented on the board) who tries to guess the identity of Jack….

— but he can make only one accusation during the game!

During each turn, the players move the characters, using their special powers,…

…and placing them either in shadow or light.

At the end of each turn, the witnesses declare whether Jack is visible — that is,…

…in light or adjacent to another character — or not (alone in the shadows).

This allows the investigator to know which characters are innocent.

As the turns progress, the investigator tries to eliminate suspects while Jack tries to escape.

Intuition, logic, and cold blood will be necessary for each of the two participants.

Visit Boardgamegeek for more on Mr Jack.

This is a popular word game.

Codenames Duet keeps the basic elements of Codenames 

…give one-word clues to try to get someone to identify your agents among those on the table,…

— but now you’re working together as a team to find all of your agents.

(Why you don’t already know who your agents are is a question that Congressional investigators will get on your back about later!)

To set up play, lay out 25 word cards in a 5×5 grid. Place a key card in the holder so that each player sees one side of the card.

Each player sees a 5×5 grid on the card, with nine of the squares colored green (representing your agents),…

…and three squares colored black (representing assassins).

Codenames Duet Rules

Three of the nine squares on each side are also green on the other side, one assassin is black on both sides,…

…one is green on the other side and the other is an innocent bystander on the other side.

Collectively, you need to reveal all fifteen agents — without revealing an assassin,…

— before time runs out in order to win the game.

Either player can decide to give the first one-word clue to the other player, along with a number.

Whoever receives the clue places a finger on a card to identify that agent.

If correct, they can attempt to identify another one.

When they identify a bystander, then their guessing time ends.

If they identify an assassin, you both lose!

Unlike regular Codenames, they can keep guessing as long as they keep identifying an agent each time;…

…this is useful for going back to previous clues and finding ones they missed earlier.

After the first clue is given, players alternate giving clues.

On each turn, a player can use up to four actions to travel between cities,…

…treat infected populaces, discover a cure, or build a research station.

…but sprinkled throughout this deck are Epidemic! cards that accelerate and intensify the diseases’ activity.

A second, separate deck of cards controls the “normal” spread of the infections.

Pandemic Game

Taking a unique role within the team,…

players must plan their strategy to mesh with their specialists’ strengths in order to conquer the diseases.

For example, the Operations Expert can build research stations which are needed to find cures for the diseases,…

…and which allow for greater mobility between cities;…

…the Scientist needs only four cards of a particular disease to cure it instead of the normal five—

…but the diseases are spreading quickly and time is running out.

If one or more diseases spreads beyond recovery or if too much time elapses, the players all lose.

If they cure the four diseases, they all win!

Unlike other such games, the pieces are never eliminated and not all have to be played.

* The Gloomhaven Game

…and their own reasons for traveling to this dark corner of the world.

Players must work together out of necessity to clear out menacing dungeons and forgotten ruins.

In the process, they will enhance their abilities with experience and loot, discover new locations to explore and plunder,…

…and expand an ever-branching story fueled by the decisions they make.

This is a game with a persistent and changing world that is ideally played over many game sessions.

After a scenario, players will make decisions on what to do,…

…which will determine how the story continues, kind of like a “Choose Your Own Adventure” book.

Gloomhaven Review

Playing through a scenario is a cooperative affair where players will fight against automated monsters,…

using an innovative card system to determine the order of play and what a player does on their turn.

Each turn, a player chooses two cards to play out of their hand.

The number on the top card determines their initiative for the round.

Each card also has a top and bottom power, and when it is a player’s turn in the initiative order,…

they determine whether to use the top power of one card and the bottom power of the other, or vice-versa.

Players must be careful, though, because over time they will permanently lose cards from their hands.

If they take too long to clear a dungeon, they may end up exhausted and be forced to withdraw.

* The Scythe Game

Scythe is a strategy game.

It is a time of unrest in 1920s Europa.

The ashes from the first great war still darken the snow.

The capitalistic city-state known simply as “The Factory”,

…which fueled the war with heavily armored mechs, has closed its doors,…

…drawing the attention of several nearby countries.

Scythe is an engine-building game set in an alternate-history 1920s period.

It is a time of farming and war, broken hearts and rusted gears, innovation and valor.

In Scythe, each player represents a character from one of five factions of

Eastern Europe who are attempting to earn their fortune,…

…and claim their faction’s stake in the land around the mysterious Factory.

Players conquer territory, enlist new recruits, reap resources, gain villagers, build structures, and activate monstrous mechs.

Scythe Board Game Strategy

Each player begins the game with different resources (power, coins, combat acumen, and popularity),…

…a different starting location, and a hidden goal.

Starting positions are specially calibrated to contribute to each faction’s uniqueness,…

…and the asymmetrical nature of the game (each faction always starts in the same place).

Scythe gives players almost complete control over their fate.

Other than each player’s individual hidden objective card,…

…the only elements of luck or variability are “encounter” cards that players will draw,…

…as they interact with the citizens of newly explored lands.

Each encounter card provides the player with several options,…

…allowing them to mitigate the luck of the draw through their selection.

Scythe Board Game Review

Combat is also driven by choices, not luck or randomness.

Scythe uses a streamlined action-selection mechanism (no rounds or phases) to keep gameplay moving,…

…at a brisk pace and reduce downtime between turns.

While there is plenty of direct conflict for players who seek it, there is no player elimination.

Every part of Scythe has an aspect of engine-building to it.

Players can upgrade actions to become more efficient, build structures that improve their position on the map,…

…enlist new recruits to enhance character abilities, activate mechs to deter opponents from invading,…

…and expand their borders to reap greater types and quantities of resources.

These engine-building aspects create a sense of momentum and progress throughout the game.

The order in which players improve their engine adds to the unique feel of each game,…

…even when playing one faction many times.

* Yahtzee – Dice Games For Two Players

games for two players

Yahtzee is a classic dice game played with 5 dice.

Each player’s turn consists of rolling the dice up to 3 times in hope of making 1 of 13 categories.

Examples of categories are 3 of a kind, 4 of a kind, straight, full house, etc.

Each player tries to fill in a score for each category, but this is not always possible.

When all players have entered a score or a zero for all 13 categories, the game ends and total scores are compared.

The traditional (public domain) game Yacht predates the trademarked game, and has slightly different scoring.

There are four basic scoring difference between the tradition game Yacht and Yahtzee.

They are:

1) Yacht has no Three of a Kind category,

2) there are no bonuses in Yacht,

3) there are no Joker rules in Yacht, and

4) the Full House category is scored as the sum of the dice.

The other scoring rules are identical between the two games.

Travel versions of the game use a device that keeps the dice captured within compartments of a plastic box,…

…and allows players to “lock” a particular die between rolls.
