I'm hoping to get a game that plays well for 2 players since I primarily play games with my wife but we both like introducing games to our friends so it'd be perfect if it goes up to at least 4 players as well. Some of our favorite games right now include

I've listed some of the ones I think would be good but feel free to add on other suggestions.

I just had to use the write in option on the poll - very cool feature! Checking out your wishlist and your favorites you mentioned, I thought #Res Arcana would fit the bill. I just picked it up recently and it's a lot of fun

That actually probably would be a good one. Voted for it. Works very well at 2, and I don't see any reason it wouldn't be fun at 4 too. The theme is whatever, but the puzzle of getting your engine running faster than your opponent(s) is very fun, in my opinion.

That's been on my wishlist as well for a while but I just don't know much about it beyond the amazing art on the box.

As said it's an engine builder that works well at 2. He actually wrote up a nice first impressions post on it not that long ago which sealed the deal for me. It's pretty straightforward and light and could easily be taught to just about anyone I think.

I'm gonna be a dissenting opinion here and say that I just got rid of my copy. It's a sharp, interesting puzzle but for my money there is nothing 'exciting' whatsoever about the game. The last couple of turns it's nail-biting wondering who has optimised better, but overall the turns plod one after the other with nothing much engaging happening, and I always think, "yeah, that was fine".

The theme is a big turn off which certainly doesn't help it feel exciting but I still think it's a great game

This poll is too even! I need someone to break the tie!

I just voted, and it evened up the two leaders... that's probably not helpful...

Tzolk'in can be a bit intimidating, but it's actually fairly simple. I think Dinosaur Island is a solid choice. It's got amber dice, worker placement, and dinosaurs eating people. What more could you want? haha

Maracaibo seems like it would be a great choice for your group.

Are you opposed to direct conflict/combat/negative player interaction?

Owner58 days ago

Yes, good question. I tend to avoid games that have a lot of it. Some is fine though.

Good luck deciding.
