  1. Mandala and Caesar! Seize Rome in 20 Minutes are both superb!

  2. BattleCON and Mage Wars are my favorites. Puzzle Strike, Exceed, and Epic are also really good.

  3. Just played Beer and Bread a few days ago and really liked it!

  4. Claim Pocket, which comes in a really small tin box, is the best 2p travel game ever.
    I love Claim, and like to think of the theme as an (american) election, where you don't win by getting the most votes, but with the majority of right kind of voters 😉.

  5. I have no idea about baseball. I have never played it and I have never even watched one game. But god I so want to try the baseball 2045 you mentioned! It felt soo cool!

    To be honest I have not had a non racing game in my collection at all, and you have sold me on this!

  6. You guys should try the Paolo Mori games Blitzkrieg! And Caesar! Something something in 20 minutes. They’re both awesome tactical quick 2p games. I think there’s a third one coming soon too!

  7. Great list. My favourite right now is Beer and Bread. My list would have also included Star Realms, Odin's Ravens, Splendour Duel. I had forgotten that there is an expansion to Targi – will definitely check that out so thanks for mentioning it! My wife and I actually started into the hobby with 3 Kosmos 2 player only games,: Caesar and Cleopatra, Sakkara, and Das Riff, and we still play a lot of games at 2. I have not played your top 2 games. We are usually not interested in games where you play a side, you don't want to represent, like in War of the Rings (we did not like Star Wars Rebellion for the reason). But will certainly try Fields of Arles.

  8. Very nice video guys! I was always a massive fan of the German game "The settlers" and especially their version "The settlers: Duel" actually we also got some inspirations from this one for our new game 🙂

  9. Just had an fantastic WotR game with the wife yesterday with me as the shadow. Epic battle for Minas Tirith on round two between Aragorn and Mordor, she played the card that makes me hit myself on 1's in the combat roll and then proceeded to roll 4 hits from Aragorn's blade storm while I rolled 3 1's killing my own men from the chaos that ensued. This put me in a bad position from the start with Gondor activated and winning the early game war.

    I took the northern Elven kingdoms and eventually Pelagir and Dol Amroth with my eastern-lings while continuing to batter Minas Tirith with Mordor forces holding Aragorn in place with his armies of men. Rohan slept through the game while Orthanc only supported Angmar and Mount Gundabad. I ended up coming back at the end with a key Shelob's Lair hunt draw stopping her from moving onto Mount Doom and succumbing to corruption on her next move attempt. Just a amazing game and deserving of all the praise it gets.

  10. If you like 2 player Euro style games, then you HAVE to check out “Pagan: Fate of Roanoke”. Many compare it to Netrunner but it has worker placement elements on top. With great theme & art work on top. If you have played it already I would be really keen to get your views on it!

  11. 7wonders duel not being here seems like a crime

  12. I’m a huge fan of two player dueling card games. Android Netrunner being my favorite game of all time, but now things like Summoner Wars and Radlands. The new game Worldbreakers is so good too, can’t suggest that highly enough.

  13. This is what I'm always looking for but can never find. Every 2 player games list ends up being multi player games that play at 2 players but are not strictly 2 player games. Please do more of these and lists of solo only games as well

  14. Pedant alert: ‘Arles’ is German and pronounced ‘ar-la’. 😊

  15. Great list! I love most on your list, but my fave is Star Wars Rebellion

  16. No 7 Wonders Duel? List discarded… (jk, thanks for the recs)

  17. For pure 2 player I also like a little known game, Ninja Taisen. Have you played it?

  18. Happy to see there's still much love for Targi. I'd add Hanamikoji and a huge new favorite of mine : Isofarian Guard

  19. I got Klask last week and loooove it😀
    Great start into the list😅

  20. Wow. You missed an amazing (18 card) game. Air Land & Sea. (aka. Critters at War, same game, new art).

  21. Caper is a great game, I got myself the deluxe version for my b-day 😎

  22. Boop….this is Sombra’s favorite game (She is a character from OW2).

  23. You were going for a good 'B' aliteration for Bread and Beer and you lost it at "you have to be good at both" when "you better be good at both" was waiting for you

  24. I really wish I could find Claim but it seems out of stock in the USA 🇺🇸😵‍💫

  25. mythic mischief is my #1 game of all time. such a great 2 player game

  26. Beer and bread sounds like an absolute blast and the fact it’s so high for you guys already makes me hype for it!

  27. Have you guys tried Star Wars Rebellion?
    It's another epic 2P game that we love!!

  28. have yall ever played Token Terrors Battlegrounds?

  29. Not sure if it’s on your previous lists but I really dig Onitama

  30. Thanks for the list. Some good games on there and glad to see Targi on there. For me: 10. Lord of the Rings: The Confrontation, 9. Omen: Reign of War, 8. Radlands, 7. Arkham Horror: The Card Game, 6. Neuroshima Hex! 3.0, 5. Undaunted, 4. Summoner Wars, 3. Fields of Arle, 2. 7 Wonders Duel, 1. Android: Netrunner. Keep up the good content.

  31. I think it would be more fun is each of you had a top 10.

  32. Morels and Fox in the Forest are great. I really suggest Morels if you haven’t played it.

  33. Your mention of KLASK has made a fan for life!

  34. Loved the video, the only games I would add are star realms and Mindbug. Mindbug is surpisingly a very very fun game!

  35. I really like how you guys agree on the games on the list and their order!

    BTW, aside form Klask, do any of the 2 player games work well as a digital PC Game?

    Fields of Arle
    War of the Ring
    Bear And Bread
    Patchwork ***********
    Caper Europe
    baseball highlights 2045 ***********

    Also interesting how only 2 games have withstood time.. while others have dropped off from your previous best-of!

    baseball highlights 2045 ***********
    7 Wonders Duel
    Patchwork ***********
    Fox in the Forest
    The Raptor
    Naga Raja
    Hero Realms

  36. I would add those to the top 3: Star Wars Rebellion, Lord of the Ring Confrontation and Fury of Dracula
