I’ve only played Gloomhaven at 4 players, and I didn’t really like it. I played 3 or 4 times with a group and I spent one entire game where all I could do was move around. My teammates were constantly blocking me and preventing me from doing the actions I wanted to do, so my best cards were wasted and it was very frustrating and unsatisfying, and it was the last time I played the game. It was also taking about 3 hours per game, which seemed like 90 minutes too long for what it is. A lot of people have told me I should try it again with 2, as it plays much better with less players. I’m willing to give it another try. I’ve been tempted to buy it
Akrotiri! Seriously brilliant game. (Was that the island you were on when you weren’t at Santorini?)
Sorry…this just didn’t do it for me…
Would love a list of best 2 player games
Love to see the 2p only list
Yes would like to see a two player video and Mitch Hedberg was awesome! "I used to to drugs. I still do but I used to, too" 🤣
100% agree on Five Tribes.
Love Kingdomino with 2. Planning where you are going to place your 2 tiles is great until you forget the order you have to take them and realise the 1st 1 has to be taken and placed before the 2nd one with was needed to play the first 1. Tactical error.
Our go to 2 player game is Monopoly deal. We mostly play on Holidays as 2 so it’s small and compact and we play to first to 5 sets to extend the game a bit but it’s still a quick game.
Just finished a four player campaign of Gloomhaven and do have to say I disagree with that pick. I think it works well at all player counts and some of the pros of more people are more potential combos as well as more viable team comps. I also think the enemies are sometimes less balanced at two. However it is a valid point about length for sure, as a 4 player mission let us 2-2.5 hours
Great list guys thamx
This is painful to watch
Two players only, yes. Do it! Come on! Do it now!
Good list guys! Welcome to… plays up to 100 players. I’ve never played it more than 2 players, and I probably never will…
but what about Santorini? it technically allows more players, but its horrible with 3 or 4
I like you guys. Did you know you got 500 likes?
So in Castles of Burgundy, you like getting an imbalanced amount of certain buildings and none of others ever for sale, and who knows what yellow tiles… ?
Race for the Galaxy seems to be another great game best at 2 players. At boardgamearena, most of the RftG games are 2-player games.
I’d love to see games best at 3-players. Now that’s rare.
Could you imagine playing games with these two guys drinking coffee or beer? A total Riot and good time😆
I LOVE Carcassonne!
I actually prefer Castles of Burgundy at 3 player the best. At 2 player a lot of the tiles aren’t used and you can get unlucky in the last couple of rounds where the animals, buildings etc you need just don’t come out. At 3 players the ‘boat track’ also becomes more important
Totally agree with Grand Austria though, adding extra players adds nothing to but waiting time to the game.
OMFG Fuck you guys! STARTS @2:30
I love Dragoon and The Godfather Corleone’s Empire at two for the simpatico reason y’all mentioned.
Your relationship makes me happy.
I think you guys have a serious ADD problem. 3 hour long games are short for board games
where is dinosaur island
I want you to make that 2-person games Top 10 list…please.
Loved your edits out of the segments, great sense of timing.
You guys are funny, enjoyable to watch.
Came to the video looking for games my wife would enjoy. Appreciate your insight.
Have a great one!
So I’m here always looking for games that play well with 2 players..
Not 2 player only games..
Not games best at 2 players…
I know it’s so specific but since my wife and I play most games together, my collection consist of games that, may play best at a higher player count, need to also be fun/good at 2 players.
Here are some games I own and tried that play well with 2..
Champions of Midgard
Run Fight or Die
Rajas of the Ganjes
I usually check the comments and ask how games play at 2. 🤓
Castles of burgundy takes too long with more that 2. Completely agree!
Cool stuff dudes! i SAID goodday sir!
thanks for the ideas!
Howdy, boys! Love this channel. I’ve secretly renamed you two Mad Dog and Uncle El Rey. Go forth in glory…
What in the fuckery…all bullshit games
I was the 500th like! Roll on with that 2player game vid!
2 more we love with 2 players are Suburbia and Gates of Loyang
Would love any and all two player game related top tens you can do. My hubby and I typically play two player more often than not.
Race for the Galaxy, definitely cannot play that outside of our regular game group. Just too many in game jokes and rivalries to allow it to be played with others.
Regarding Gloomhaven: we have a 4-player group going on and we somehow manage to meet at least every 4 weeks – latest 😁 normally we manage to meet every 2 weeks. So far we have been playing nearly 1.5 years and we still love it 😊 AS soon as you know the characters it gets better, time-wise. Love it. 😁
Where do you get the metal trains for Great Western Trail?
2 player only games please!!!
It shows a pic of legendary when you are talking about kingdomino
Great list, thank again guys! On The Gloomhaven, I’ve played at all player counts and I totally agree. Mostly because of the time per game and getting the peeps together on a regular basis. Plus if people are planning turns too much, the AP can get crazy. Although…the epicness of having four heroes and tons of bad guys is pretty awesome 🙂
Wow, I’m shocked that Seasons isn’t on your list. I find that it’s really hard to play at 3 and 4 while 2 players is nice a quick.
I would love a best 2 player only games. Unfortunatly I only have 1 person who will play board games with me on a regular basis. We may have a 3rd soon but its still up in the air.
LEGENDARY MARVELS KINGDOMINO 🤣🤣🤣🤣
Legendary, You Can Solo That? That is my favorite player count.
Y’all don’t bid in Five Tribes with 2 players? I feel like that’s a great part of that game!
I watched your video for 30 seconds and then spent a half hour watching Mitch Hedburg videos. I blame you… 🙂
Love the energy! Finally found a top 10 2 player video that features crunchier games like Great Western Trail. Keep it up!
I would love a 2 player games list!
