Carcassonne‘s box says “Especially good for two players”. We agree 🙂
Carcassonne came out in 2000 and has been a worldwide hit ever since. It’s a great, easy to play tile-laying game. You take turns placing tiles and maybe claiming them with your little meeples, to score points later on. You want to finish the feature you claim, and the other players probably want to stop you (or at least share your points by connecting up to your feature with a tile claimed by their own meeple).
It’s simple and pretty quick to play (we just played in about 40 minutes), good for newcomers and experienced players.
Recommended for all board game collections 🙂
