    We got Cards Against Humanity for Christmas and it is a blast!

    Does anyone have a recommendation for a game that's really fun for just 2 to play? Most games aren't that great without a group.

    I'd like something challenging and a little complicated but not crazy.

    Just got gifted an old school strategy game called Pente. And there is a solo version of play.. busting that puppy out tonight. From what I can see, it is the game upon which Othello was based. I could see you really enjoying a game like this. I'll let you know what I think.

    7 Wonders Duel could be an option. It's a revamped version of 7 Wonders, but specifically for 2 players.

    My wife and I will play games meant for more people, but modify rules/gameplay to make it better for just 2 players.

    I've heard really good things about Android:Netrunner; I own it, but I am intimidated by the manual and setup.

    I just got Splendor, sort of card and token game. A bit strategy but not super intense. We watched a YT video to learn how to play.
    I'm looking for something *more* than the standard games...I told the guy at the game store, "Like Risk-with some strategy, but not super intense and goes on forever" He gave us some suggestions, ought Splendor, and I told him I would go back and pick his brain when they weren't busy.
    The joy of life comes from our encounters with new experiences, and hence there is no greater joy than to have an endlessly changing horizon, for each day to have a new and different sun.

    Always loved Monopoly... when played properly, which no one ever does. :angry:

    Oh dude... I play it right. I am hardcore about it. Back in HS my best friend and I would have monopoly matches that would go on for weeks, we would just leave the board and everything in place so we could continue! Can't find anyone to play with me like that now.

    So going to the shore for a few days.  One of my friends and myself decided to check out this game place near me and pick up a few games.  The place itself was kinda unorganized but holy shot did they have a lot.  Mostly independent games and stuff.  We got Diamonds and Sushi Go.  Went to another friends house and tried them out, they were both pretty good.

    Diamonds is a trick taking card game

    Sushi Go is card game.

    Both were pretty fun, liked Diamonds a little more.

    I agree on Axis and Allies 

    Machi Koro is also great as a card based strategy type game

    I just played Catan for the first time about 2 months or so ago.  It's a very fun game.  It can be frustrating when you don't get the rolls you're expecting though.  I played a game a couple weeks ago and all I accomplished throughout the entire game was building 4 roads and 1 settlement.  Terrible!!  The one thing I really like about it is the board setup never has to be the same.  You really have to put your thinking cap on before you set up... and even then a lot of it comes down to chance.
