Papa Bear and I (and most of our friends for that matter) are big table top gamers, and spend a little too much time on Geekandsundry.com. We got into table top games when our friend introduced us to Table Top with Wil Wheaton (yup that kid from Star Trek, who plays himself on The Big Bang Theory), and the nerdiness just consumed us from there. (Table Top is an online show where Wil Wheaton and his friends get together, play games, and explain their nuances.) We like the show because we can decide if we actually like a game before we purchase it! We are big on quality time in our family, and enjoy staying home and playing games on weekends, many times just the two of us. Sometimes it can be difficult to find good two player board games, so I figured I’d share some of our favorites with you!
This is a European style tile laying game modeled after a French City is super simple and different every time you play. The objective is to collect the most points; you gather points by connecting roads, building cities/monasteries, and establishing a farm. You play a knight, a robber, a monk, or a super lazy farmer. Carcassonne is great for two players or up to 5 players of all ages, and really easy to learn and you could play for hours if you wanted to! They have great EXPANSIONS TOO!!
