With Valentine’s Day coming up, it seems like the perfect time to tell you all about some of the best board games for two players— especially because I have mostly been playing two-player lately, so a lot of these are fresh in my mind.

If you don’t have a big gaming group, you have probably noticed that two-player games are hard to find, and really great ones that are just as great for two players are even more rare.

Includes reviews focused on two-player play of Monarch, Harry Potter: Hogwarts Battle, Consentacle, Vast, Pandemic, and Scythe, plus some more games we recommend for you and a partner.
