Fox in the Forest
Fox in the Forest
and Fox in the Forest Duet
are 2 games specially designed for 2 players. The mechanisms of the game involve trick taking and we'll leave that to our favourite board game bloggers to explain
. What we cal tell you is this new release is one of the best 2 player games out there. It's work picking up, learning how to play as you'll be going back again and again to play. Also check out Fox in the Forest Duet which is the follow up to the popular game and expands on the gameplay.
and The Mind Extreme
are 2 best selling card games that can work well for a 2 player game or with a few more players. This is a corporate game where you and your team must play your cards in low to high order. The trick is that you can't see each other's cards or communicate. Working together, you might try to rid your hands of as many cards you can without missing count. If you do, you start over. It's intense and strangely enough has some sort of magical quality where you can actually use your mind reading powers to persevere.
Perhaps the best well known 2 player game is Patchwork
. Compete against each other by crafting a quilt. While peacefully quilting, you realize that your quilt pieces are all different sizes and shapes (oh no!) and you must try to fit each piece in as tightly as possible. Patchwork works well for a range of players and takes only about 20-30 minutes to play. Check out the standard
or holiday version
as well as the express version if you're short on time. We'd recommend the express version
for kids 6+ to get into the fun.
